Details:Vinny and I got an invite to head out on a buddy Dave's boat. He just upgraded to a 24ft Center Console Whaler, nice rig. Still early in the season, so we were not sure what to expect. Water temps were 47-48, nice day in the mid 50's, but the ocean was a little rough. On the water by 7am, we start fishing for Tautog. I had never caught one before so I was game. Bait of choice was live crabs, and cut Squid. There was a 1/2 dozen boats anchored on the hot spot, we anchored just outside of them and it showed. They we pulling them up one after the other. We were lucky to have caught the 1 each we did before we ran out of crabs. After that we attempted to see if any Stripers were around, jigging, trolling, swimbaits, no luck. Last we checked a fluke spot, but its still way early for them. Called it a day a 2pm, crossing another species off the list.
