I saw a post that Tautog should be around about now. Can anyone give me an idea where I can find them from shore around Carolina Beach ?? Here's a pic of a 9 Lber I caught last fall from the beach in New London CT before I moved down here to heaven.

Nice! Where can I find one of those? Are they in the surf here in NC?

Ryan Here.

We dont get to many taug like that around here. I see them when diving sometimes that are a good size but no one really fishes for them. You can try some inshore wrecks though, right off CB.

Wow, nice fish!. I love fishing for them and never caught one that big. The N.C. state record is 19lbs. The range of tautog is from Massatwoshits to S.C. I know people catch them off the sand in October. That is a St. Croix rod in the background, what is your favorite rod, line, and bait for catching Tautog.
