Tog Season is Here! by Larry Leary

We did a late day trip and left my dock at 1:30 heading for several wrecks off BI. We had quite a number of throw backs, so we decided to fish the inlet rocks which produced 5 nice keepers to 16-1/2” by Tyler.
Tide Conditions were ideal and having a Rhodan trolling motor helped tremendously. We also had a professional Tog fisherman with us – Max from Fisherman Headquarters. This man knows how to catch Tog!! We were back to the dock by 8PM.

Fishing Facts

Of the fifty United States, thirty-eight have a striped-bass record. New Jersey has the largest striped-bass record—a 78-pound 8·ounce whopper that was caught in 1982. The state with the smallest striped-bass record is Iowa. That landlocked striper weighed only 9 pounds 4 ounces and was caught in 1983.
There’s something fishy about beer these days. Fish Tail Ale is popular as ever, and New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery is one of the state’s largest specialty breweries. There’s also Washington’s Wild Salmon Organic Pale Ale, Florida’s Land Shark beer, Delaware’s Dogfish Head beer, and two versions of Stingray beer—a lighter version from the Cayman Islands and a dark beer from Canada.
The triangle fly is probably the most unusual of saltwater flies. It’s one of the few, if not only, flies tied to a treble hook. It’s also barely a fly at all, because hardly any material is used. It is complete after tying the two straw pearl twinkle flashes and the tiny tuft of natural squirrel, leaving an entire hook fully exposed. Incredibly this barebacked treble fly is a knockout when it comes to sea trout.
