We shoved off today with Pete, Tony, Mike, Tom, TJ, and Curtis. We ran straight out the canal to the west and when we got to the channel edge, we made a hard turn to the north and ran right up the edge of the channel hoping to find bass that are taking a different migratory route up the bay. Well, we found plenty of bait piles, but fished four or five different edges and flats and didn't get a bite. This is beyond frustrating right now. I'm praying for a big turnaround! I hope it comes soon. This morning, I threw a bucket of white crabs and a bucket of lead in the front storage compartment to have something to try in the event the striper fishing was another case of chasing our tail. We cut through the harbor and ran out front. We set up for about 45 minutes and got a decent tog bite going. I think the warm weather has the tog waking up pretty good. We boated 15 fish pretty quickly, with more than half being nice keepers to 5 pounds. Togging is the way to go right now! That said, we'll be running 8 hour trips next week. We'll keep all options on the table. If the bass start biting, we'll go after them. If not, we'll go togging. We have plenty of openings next week, so call or email to get aboard!
