Thanksgiving Fishing Traditions - Blackfish Moving Deeper

Finally some better weather is in the forecast and we can expect some more participation this upcoming weekend. For many, Thanksgiving also marks a traditional day of going out fishing in the morning before having turkey for dinner. Turkey and tog—what a combo. Well the tog have been around along with sea bass and stripers from as far east as Montauk going all the way to the city so you have an array of options to choose from for fishing on the holiday and the rest of the week. Reports, tournament updates and event information are in this week’s informative report. And from The Fisherman Magazine, we hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with good food and good fishing.
