I am all ears on this one.

New to the Toggin scene actually. I love it!!

Caught my limit today, but it took 3 hours. Would have been done in 45 minutes had I not lossed about 20. I think it is the way I hook the crab.

Any masters out there that want to share how they hook'em??

Thanks in advance

Biggest Don't you know the older you get the less sleep you need.!!!

Thanks gentlemen.

TOGGINBOB, I gotta agree with you. I have been pleasantly surprised with the action and fight in a Tog. Caught my first 5+ pounder last week, fought like a 15-20 pound bass IMHO. And it never stopped until it was in the boat. They do seem to lose all fight once they are on land/boated however. Blows striper away in my book as far as the meat goes.

Anyone ever been bitten by those teeth?? The ones I have caught don't seem to agressive. Not like a blue that literally launches at your hands!!!
Dr.B, I have never heard of anyone ever being bitten by a tog. I don't think they are aware that their teeth can be used as weapons. However I will never put a finger in their mouth to find out.

I had just arrived at our Cape May place an hour before.

But, I have a project in Viet Nam and i was sending information to some of they guys. Well, you know how it is when you're on the 'puter----you have to check the Barn before you go to bed. :D You were up at a God-awful hour copmpared to me. You OKAY? LOL!! Hope so! ;)

Dr. Bass, they say if fish were a football team, the tog would be the fullback with their short power bursts. My best is only 12 1/2 pounds, but he put up a hell of a tussle.

I'm looking for my first 15+ pounder. :eek:
