RipTide Bait and Tackle

The tides are extremely low but not low enough to have a car drive on. They did make it all the way up to the North end by Wreck Inlet. Would love to see if they can dig themselves out and actually make it back. Maybe Brigantine will charge them for a permit that can only be used at low tide when the sand is really packed down hard? Ya never know...... #RiptideBaitandTackle

Bayside Marina

Matthew Charles and Eric Matuzsan hit the A.C. jetties yesterday, hoping for a better outcome from the day before. Eric was pulled into the rocks on his first two drops by a big tog and was broken off. Then Matt, hooked up with his first keeper of the fall season. A few minutes later Eric hooked up with a keeper too.

The tog bite remains hot!
