Tog Fishing This Fall

By Sponsored Content

With flounder season coming to a close, it’s Tog Time along the South Jersey coast. The Duke O’ Fluke fishing boat out of Somers Point is now scheduling trips for September and October. Groups and individuals alike are encouraged to call 609-926-2280 or visit us on Facebook to save a spot on an upcoming trip.
Tog trips are already scheduled on September 29 and October 1, departing at 8am. Call ahead to join either of these, or to arrange another date with the Captain.
You’ll get plenty of opportunity to fish on these trips, as we only travel out 10-20 minutes. The group size is limited below boat capacity to ensure everyone has room to maneuver. Battling tog tends to call for a little elbowroom, so you’ll appreciate the consideration when you’ve got your trophy on the line.
Tog are a difficult fish to hook, making these trips interesting for fishermen of all skill levels. The fish tends to tap at the bait repeatedly before taking hold of it – so be patient before you try to set the hook! Crabs are your best bet for baiting these fish, with different crabs often attracting different sizes of tog.
There are some great recipes for preparing your catch. Tog Chowder is a nice variation of the classic New England Clam Chowder. Tog is a very mild, tasty white fish, so it’s great with a little white wine, butter, lemon and pepper. Tog is also great for fish tacos.
Join Captain Brook aboard the Duke ‘O Fluke for a great fishing trip. Tog trips are being scheduled now so don’t delay. If you’d rather head up the river, 6-hour Perch trips are also being planned. Call 609-926-2280 for more info or to plan your trip. You can also send your questions, along with your contact info, to
