Use small but sturdy hooks, and chunks of shrimp, clam scraps, and small sand fleas. Try any structure that holds tautog, for example, jetties, bridge pillings, and wrecks. If your lucky you'll hook keeper tog as well.

Use a small bluegill hook, baited with a cut piece of clam or bloodworm. Fishing around rocks and ell-grass is also a good idea. Fish shallow water just beyond the low tide mark.
