The last couple of weeks have been full of work, work, and not much fishing. I managed to make it out to the HRBT 2-3 times but it was WINDY! Only one night was really productive with about 20 striper up to 25". One day at the HRBT was an early search for tautog with Rob Choi and Kayak Kevin . It was a slower than slow and no tog were caught but it was a heck of a learning experience for me. Rob and Kevin are insane fishermen so I can only pray that they keep letting me fish with them. I also got the chance to fish with Ric Burnley 2 times at the HRBT. Ric is a cool dude and knows everything about fishing it seems. It was good times fishing with him and I hope I get the chance to fish with him some more.
Last Sunday I met up with Rob at the 1st island of the CBBT. I called him before I got there and he had caught a few tog already so I was PUMPED! I paddled as fast as I could to him and made it just in time for the bite to shut off...Figures. Rob caught 2-3 tog right after i showed up and aside from 1 on a boat they were the only tog I saw caught for the rest of the day. After getting the tog skunk I hope to shake it off at the HRBT with some light line striper action. Ric was the only one to catch a striper in the snotty wind and murky water all night. I would say that the day was a total bust but fishing with people like Rob and Ric is always a great learning experience. Oh well. It can only get better from that! Check out Robs >Tog report<
