We tried one more time, but the strong full moon current up against a stiff breeze made fishing and anchoring difficult to say the least. We threw in the towel and went home to watch football, eat turkey sandwiches and chase away the chill on a cold day.

The calendar says it's late, but the fish and the weather are cooperating. Recent highlights include Cory K. and Ken K. from PA having action all day and going home with a heavy bag and the pool winnings. Russ Y. culled a limit from the twenty one tog he landed. "Tugboat" Fred had a 7lb. pool winner. Grumpy landed another jumbo tog on the dinky pole and quickly returned the big girl to her home. The "Legend" finally broke out the light tackle after six weeks of tog fishing and never had so much fun. He landed limits of large tog, The biggest going 8 1/4lbs. and 8 1/2 lbs. and topped it off with a 18lb. striped bass.

This week saw the mild weather continue, but the strong November winds kept us tied to the dock. It stopped blowing Sunday and we picked at the blackfish despite the strong current. When the tide eased, the bite turned on. Mike M. returned from vacation with a vengeance and put on a show landing one big tog after another. " The Legend" had a slow start but finished strong landing a bunch of good ones."Jiggin' Jack" did well as usual. All the keepers were 5 to 6 lbs, and once again patience paid off and "light got the bite."

Friday was a nice day once the fog lifted. Sunday was breezy and chilly and the fish bit until the tide got too strong. Recent highlights include Mark S. with 6 lb. tog, Evelyn had a 7 lb on the dinky pole, Rebecca landed a 7 lb. on light tackle, "The Barker" had some good fish on his little ice fishing rod and Grumpy caught and released a 9lber on the dinky pole. The "Legend" had a few good days landing many large tog and took another pool with a 7 lber. Special thanks go out to the Sunday crew for deciding to come in a little early in time to see the Giants game.

We missed Friday due to an altenator going bad and I could not get back to the boat with a replacement in time for the trip. Sorry guys we'll get 'em next time. Sunday we set out on the bay in choppy and windy conditions with the usual crew and special guest stars Randy "Togaholic" and Anthony "The Barker". The blackfish bite was picky and once again those that went lite had the bite. Bigger blackfish (the keeper sized ones) are much more wary and not as aggressive as the shorts and can be landed on tackle as lite as ten pound braid as has been proven over the last few weeks. One fantastic angler put on a display of fishing brilliance and landed a twenty four pound striped bass on a Penn Battle 2000 filled with ten pound braid and twenty pound fluoro carbon leader. We had bass blowing up on bunker schools all around the boat and some were lost and some were landed. Roger won the pool with a tog over six pounds and "Jiggin' Jack was high hook landing the most blackfish on a freshwater bass rod. Randy had a big one come off the hook and never recovered. A fun day on the bay and fish for everyone.
