tog is awesome!!
You can cook it a variety of different ways and no matter what it tastes great. The consistency of the fillet allows you to grill it, bake it, fry it without it falling apart, but it is tender and delicious when eating.
Clean the fillet, pat it dry (but just a bit moist), crack fresh pepper and crack salt over it (easy on the salt). Do this both sides and throw it on foil with holes punched in it. Half a teaspoon of whipped butter (whipped doesn't taste as heavy/oily) on each side. You can serve it to the wife with some wine, or with your buds with some beers, or use it for a sandwich.
It's awesome, and I know by your posting name, they're pretty accessible to you (Avalon side of TI, right by the rocks)

go to the surf forum,
select topics from 30 days,
on I believe page 2, there is a post/question from
"Clayton Clay" about "Tog Fishing"
There's several opinions and I'm sure they all work...
Good luck

I just go one last weekend, fo rhte first time, and it surely was the best tasting fish I've ever had! I breaded it with "shore lunch" batter. If I get one this weekend, I'll try making a sandwich out of it.

I've got a friend that uses the following gauge for explaining the table fare qualities of fish...

"If you can stick the fish in the microwave and cook it for 15 seconds and tell me it's the best fish you've ever tasted, it's tautog."

Tog has got to be one of the best eating critters in the water .take some italian bread crumbs with a little old bay ,toss it in a pan with some melted butter and let it fry ,make a sandwich or eat it plain it's great .riggs are simple nothing more than a drop loop in the end of some 30 or 40 lb mono slip the loop over the sinker. a #4 hook with a 4 to 6" leader ,thread the leader through the sinker and over the hook use a stiff short rod keep your line tight and your rod low be ready for a quick hook set.grean crab is like tog candy but clam will work .KEEP IT SIMPLE .and bring plenty of hooks and sinkers it's almost a guarantee you'll break off plenty of riggs .but if you get into some fish you WILL be hooked for life !!!!!!!GOOD LUCK :D

Has anyone been catching any Taug from the beaches along the Jetties? In the spring we were getting some real nice fish on Crabs and clams.

Do they usually run bigger in the fall and do they hang around the jetties or do they head into the backbays?

best Fried fish you will ever eat.

excellent
Hutch Jr. has it right with the mircroway idea

my dad did this trick with seabass

Cooks can overcook fish

You know when fish is the best when u can't buy it at the store or it's very expensive.

I was told about another fish "you'll can have the tunas, I just want the wahoo"
