    I've been going out constantly this year since Jan, and with the warm weather...the bite from last year has been faster. I've already got plenty of striped bass to feed a village, and will still get more. This location has to wait for other fish to migrate to, but the Northeast Tautog "blackfish", just started april 1st, and the weather kept me off the water or it was too cold for them to feed....

    But today, the tides changed...literally...went from high tide to slack...and the black fish started to bite...and the first fish landed would beat my record from last year by 1/2 an inch. Followed by more large blackfish...

    going for more fish all year. Blackfish, Bluefish, Striped bass, and I even have ambitions to get a shark or two.

    Nice man! i know those stripers fight hard. Ive never eaten them though, are they good? i would imagine its pretty white and flaky, if its like other bass.

    Sadly, couldn't tell you. I never took one home. They have to be over 28" for a keeper, and these stripers I got were out of a PCB laiden river. When the big girls come in from the ocean in a few weeks, then I'll take one home for the grill.

    I can tell you that those blackfish are the best tasting fish I've ever had. All they eat is crabs, oysters, clams, and shrimp. My number one fav for sashimi, and they make a perfect cerviche.

    Maryland is offering $200 gift cards for capture of the northern snakehead invasive species
    just a heads up, might be worth a fishing expedition

    wow $200 a fish? that could be very lucrative if you found a honey hole. I have heard of some hot spots in south FL where guys are getting them regularly, but i have never seen one personally. I guess these things are spreading everywhere.

    Nice looking fish amigo.



    I'm trying to convince my girlfriends dad to get a tugger so we can go shrimping when the season starts.

    I need to head out soon, the weather is perfect! Though, I have plans for mainly beach fishing; I need to invest in a good surf rod or find some good piers.

    I took my 5 year old nephew to our local trout derby this morning. He nailed this 3lb lunker and won the whole dang thing, even beat the 14 year old kids
