Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

All of my customers who know me and for the new customers who have become regulars, you know I pull no punches with my reports, I don't sugar coat anything. I will always give you a 110% effort, the best crew on the dock for service, a good clean boat, A customer friendly atmosphere, everything to make your day a good one. The only thing I can't control is the fishing and fishing this season has been horrible! A few trips have produced and did OK, nothing like the fishing last year at this time by any means. Doesn't keep us from coming to the boat everyday looking to bust ass. With that being said....

I'm still not seeing the bait in the channels, with the water temp at 71 it should be there.....could be all the fresh water run off which never seems to go away. Today, I fished the last of the incoming where we have been catching some nice keepers, found mostly short Fluke. Waited till the change of tide as the weather-asses called for West wind. Knew with that report "West would be Best" Took a 40 minute ride to catch the change and perfect conditions to only have the wind go South as I set up on the drift!!! Every man has his limits and today I reached mine!

Back at it tomorrow with a positive attitude working hard to get it done. I always say "Patience" but for Christ's sake...give me a break!

After searching half the ocean the past couple of days looking for the bite... today, we tried another new area. Had perfect conditions with the out-going and a West wind, like they say West is best when it's right! Slugged away on the shorts & keepers for most of the Morning.

Dave Bachovin fishing the bow lead the way with 4 keepers and a bunch of shorts, a couple guys with their three but it certainly wasn't the norm...Pool changed hands several times through-out the day with Diane hanging in there with her 4 pound fish till it was topped, then topped again. Big one for the day went 6 pounds.

Not many area's holding fish just yet and to stay in Sandy Hook bay is just dying a slow death, for now. My fuel bill for the past week will prove that. Water temps are good at 70 degrees but I'm not happy with the lack of bait in the channels. Last year to date the reach channel was the place to be, right now it's a dead zone. No bait, no fish, except the occasional lost one that want's to bite. Sharks are plenty once you get deeper than 20 ft.

All we can do is work hard every-day, keep searching and praying that we will be rewarded with banner days ahead!

Back at it tomorrow.
