Saltwater – Saltwater anglers are facing somewhat limited options right now. The Tautog bite is solid on ocean wrecks when weather conditions are favorable.

Seabass are also being caught while fishing for Togs, but they must be released as the season is still closed for recreational anglers. There have been reports of Rockfish being encountered 12-15 miles out, but this is well past the … Read More »
