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

Weather looks very good for the next several days, the only thing I am concerned about is how much swell we will have tomorrow in the Ocean. Blew pretty hard today and the sea's were angry my friend. All I can say is, we will do the very best we can with the conditions we are dealt.

The last 2019 Fluke trip will be on Saturday the 21st, we start Porgy fishing on Sunday the 22nd. Looking forward to some good Porgy fishing as I know many who are chomping at the bit to get it going.

We are also Booked for this coming FRIDAY the 20th, not available.

Yesterday we had no drift all day, we only managed a handful of keepers with a bunch of shorts. A nice Pool fish at 7 pounds but without the conditions if was beyond tough and very frustrating. Fished several area's with the same results no matter where or what we did.

Back at it tomorrow!
