Tautog are becoming more intriguing to anglers lately, but the bite in the Bay has slowed. Moving to deeper water is the key, with the mid-range and deep water wrecks now a better choice.
Some nice catches of tog are responding on structures from near the Chesapeake Light Tower, and on out to the Triangle Wrecks. Running to the more southern wrecks can also provide better results.
Plenty of Jumbo seabass are also available on these same wrecks, but the season is now closed. Chopper bluefish are also circling many offshore wrecks.
