North shore tautog- the ugly, the not so bad and the better than good

I caught my first "north shore" tautog ever in 20 years on monday - I knew they were here - just didn't know where (no power plants involved) and was actually targeting them a couple days previous and struck out but caught flounder - so i switched my tog rigs over to flounder ones (long skinny hooks) to catch more flounder at lunch time and ended up hooking a tog within 5 minutes of dropping the line. A nice 19 inch fish-- i decided to keep and print it - as it may be my only one. Didn't get another bump for the next hour so i j

I got it on ice, and quickly into the fridge and went back to work. Early the next morning I made some prints and didn't want to clean fish as i had to get back to work again so I brought it to my friend's sushi place (kame) since they like to make soup from heads--and this is what i had for lunch today-freekin awesome.

That spot looks very familiar,......We have caught them there in the late 60's and early 70's while fishing for flounder. When we saw those white teeth ,we ran !
There is another spot ,just down river ,about a mile,........
