Interesting species
« on: August 26, 2023, 01:19:49 PM »

    I caught an oyster toadfish whilst fishing for Tautog last Thursday. . . a first for me. . . I read they are good eating, but I threw it back . . . magnificent camouflage!!
Caught a jumbo Tog as well. . . 21 1/2 . . . 🎣🎣🎣

Yes i heard they were good eating as well. Ive caught a few on party boats. Ive seen one guy get a massive one in RI. Never seen anyone keep them though.

Thanks.  It's been a while, and it looked similar to me.
