    You can respect the sea or she can take the respect from you.

    You have to shmooze a lobsterman. But since the tog limit is 4, is it worth it? Hermits are a pain. and how soon do you want to have your limit? Use crabs, leave the hermits alone.
    All fishermen lie, except you and me, and sometimes I'm not sure about you.

    I have used Asians and Greens but never Hermits. I want to give it a shot to see what all the fuss is over.

    I repeat---hermits are a pain in the ass! And, yes, I've caught plenty of togs on hermits. You might as well use mussels or sandworms. Stick to crabs. How do you think the hermits get out of their shells? You need a hammer to break them up and a board to pound the shells on. Makes a mess, too. Stick to crabs.

    The Hermit Bite

    TOGS BITE FAST ON THE HERRMITS BUT YOU ONLY GET 1 SHOT

    FORGET THAT CRUCH CRUCH CRUNCH SET THE HOOK STUFF WITH HERMITS ITS SLURP AND U BETTER SET THE HOOK OR THATS A wrap.

    crack another and rebait


    oh and in my exp. once the hermits hit the water forget getting a good bite going on other baits

    what I do is start with greens if We get the bite going stay with greens

    no good on greens go to whites if you get them started stay with that

    I only go with the hermits at the end or if I cant start them with other bait

    Many times i have seen togs turn off to one bait once a better choice is offered
    Take a kid fishing, they are the future of our sport and our world
