Atlantic Highlands, Sandy Hook, Raritan Bay Party Boat Fishing Aboard Captain Ron's Fishermen

Fishing from Atlantic Highlands and the Sandy Hook Area offers us the best of both worlds, The Ocean and the Bay!

We primarily fish the ocean, rocks, wrecks, reefs and open bottom. But on those days where it's questionable, we have the calm sheltered waters of SandyCapt. Ron Santee hook and Raritan Bay. Lot's of spots to choose from. Atlantic Highlands is centrally located at the shore, in the middle of the state. Easy access for customers from NY, PA, Northern and Southern NJ.

Most Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Fish species we target actually migrate to this area to spawn and spend the summer months, less time riding and more time fishing for our customers!!!

Season starts in April fishing for Striped Bass.

Stripers are one of the most exciting fish out there. The average size is 24 to 48 inches or 5 to 40 pounds! Along with being the best looking fish and a good fighter, they also taste great.

We fish till Mid June then switch to Fluke fishing for the Summer months.

Fluke (or Summer Flounder) are bottom dwellers. We fish several areas for Fluke, depending on the time of season. The Bay, Ocean, Channels, nothing is out of our reach. The average size Fluke for our area run 14 to 30 inches,1 to 10 pounds. However, several fish each season are caught  between 10 and 14 pounds! Fluke are a challenge to catch, that’s what keeps customers coming back.

We finish up the season with our Fall Striper run. Normally from the last week in October through Christmas (weather permitting). Jigging or Bait Fishing between the channels, in the bay or down the beach, this is probably the most exciting time of year. Fish are migrating for the winter and are normally very hungry.............If you haven’t fished with us before, give us a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you! Capt. Ron Santee

Captain Ron's Latest Fishing Report

Guess the Weatherman got to everyone once again today with their BS!

Nice day out in the Ocean. The morning bite on Sea Bass was like Porgy fishing, hit the bottom and reel! Keepers, shorts, good action.

Had Joe, Harry & Barry from the Bergen County Anglers aboard once again taking no prisoners....Joe caught the only keeper Fluke while we were anchored and ended the day taking the pool with a nice fish.

Put the boat on a drift but we never had any current all day. Took a short ride and went searching for some tide, fished the stones and caught the ling, Blackfish, some more Sea Bass and a few small Whiting.

Eddie Hazeltine, an old school buddy from way back made his yearly visit up from Florida to fish with me, he also ended the day with a nice catch of Sea Bass & ling.

We will Bottom fish the rest of the week, Sunday we will be Fluke fishing Full time......I got a feeling!!!!

Back at it tomorrow, weather looks good the next couple of days, come get some dinner.
