I am wondering if anyone got some tautogs from shore recently?

Wenz you need to wait for the Dandelions to show in your yard before you even think about making a trip with crabs and sea worms Peace and Prayers

Typically spring, then fall are the two times to find them close enough for shorebound anglers

 

Edit to add - I'm referring to southside of the cape/buzzard's bay and though RI with those timing windows...They seem to be getting more prevalent at points north of the cape, but I don't know how much different, if at all, the inshore tautog run is in those areas

50 degrees min water temperature.

Actually the dandelions flowering is spot on, there must be some temperature relationship land to water when this happens.

No dandelions yet, but the air temp is getting up to 70 deg F in Boston area this Saturday.  That's good enough for me to try for some tog in Buzzard's Bay over rock piles on my yak...

I can confirm they are on shore in at least one buzzards bay location. I’ve seen them with my own eyes. 

Togs or dandelions?

My front and back yards have hundreds of them (Dandelions, not tog. If there were tog there I must have missed them).....

You use the dandelions for bait, right. Are they fresh or salted?

Didn't the old Ginzo's eat them?

I thought I recall my grandmother talking of this
