Today was a beautiful day here in NJ with temps reaching near 70 degrees, my BIL and I took his 35' Bertram sport fisherman to the Shrewsbury rocks an area of ocean a couple of miles off the coast of NJ to catch Black fish (Tautog) these fish are dogged fighter's and are very tasty on the plate, there diet consists of shellfish, crabs clams and mussels. They are a regulated species and cannot be bought or sold on the open market, so if you want to eat them you have to catch them. Here is what a black fish or Tog look like, we caught 10 today.

Good for you guys, I'm sure you will enjoy them. Never heard of them before. Very nice sencery in the background, clam water, looks like a very nice day.

Never have fished salt water. Would like to though. My experience is in fresh water fishing. This summer the wife and I will probably be out every day if possible. My son and I are the only ones who eat fish but the wife loves to catch fish for us. I agree Toppop, if he has extra I will volunteer to take some off his hands. Thanks for sharing with us. Looks like a lot of fun and some good eating there. Roger

Congrats Hank! Never seen before this species, seems it doesn't live in North or Baltic Sea. This year I wasn't seafishing and when I see your catch, I'm a lil' bit jealous...
