Blackfish Jigging Rig
The tautog, or blackfish, is one of the most thrilling fish to catch. Green crabs, Asian crabs, other residential crabs and clam strips are the most popular bait for tautog. To use this rig, simply tie it on your line, add your bait to the jig, and drop it down to the bottom. Tautog like to hangout around structures like breakwalls, wrecks, reefs, boulder fields, and rocky slopes. Remember to be patient because these fish can be finicky. But, when that bite turns on, get ready.
