    One Of My Better Days!

    I could not help but take the day off today, with the forcast in the 80's and winds at 5-10. I am glad I did! I departed Poquoson Virginia at 0640 hrs and headed for a spot in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay that I have been having some luck at recently. I had three hours of steady catching Togs and Sheepshead using fiddler crabs for bait. I had one release citation Sheepshead at 25 inches and another that ended up at 11 lbs, I let several others go. I caught at least 14 Tau Tog and kept 4 between 18-21 inches. It was great day with some super pullage. Here are a couple pictures from today.

    We have the fiddler crabs all over here also and I have never heard of using them for bait. This is interesting as most of our fish species are the same as you I am going to start using them. Not a huge fan of filleting the Sheephead but well worth it with the taste and a great fight on light tackle. Do you use them whole or half. Do they also work for the smaller reds. I use small blue crabs for bait but these guys would be fun to turn all the kids loose on the beach at night and let them have a crab catching competition.
