    Is tautog good eating? It's not the most popular fish around and it certainly isn't the easiest to catch. In fact, the tautog is downright ugly and slimy, but it's wonderful to eat and certainly gives the angler an excellent fight. The tautog, also called a blackfish, is a member of the wrasse family.

    Great fishing to round out the technical end of the season. We’re not done fishing, in fact it should only get better for the next little bit and less traffic. #letthebattlebegin #pennfishing #gulp #getsum

    TAUTOG CHARTERS Spring and mid to late fall is prime time for catching Tautog. They inhabit the rock and wreck structures both in our bay and close by ocean waters. Anglers in Ocean City love this fish as ugly as it looks, it is one of the best eating fish in the bay and ocean. Some say it tastes like lobster because of what it eats! This is a hands on non lazy day of fishing. Catching tog requires the angler to be on there feet and ready for the strike! The Get Sum and the Ivy Sea have some favorite spots to pluck these fish from the rocks and structure. On calmer days a great option is to book a wreck fishing trip. https://www.getsumcharters.com/book-now.html
