Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

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.

I knew we had a short window of opportunity today to try some Fluke fishing down the beach to start the day so that's where we headed!

We got to make one drift, caught 2 keepers and 6 shorts before the tide changed, the wind came up and the shit hit the fan!

Anchored up and slugged away on the Sea Bass and some ling. Ocean got worse as the day went on but the guys toughed it out till the end.

Please guys, when myself or the crew tell you to hit the bottom and take a couple cranks up so you don't get stuck, and the fish are off the bottom, please heed the advise! Had several guys loose 3-5 rigs today which should never happen if you listen to the crew.

We do this everyday and certainly don't want you to have to incur any additional expense. When I read the fish 8 to 10 feet off the bottom, that's where you need to be......This is almost like "Turn the Handles" Blue or Bass fishing.

Back at it tomorrow Bottom Fishing, Sea bass closes on the 22nd so everyone PLEASE PRAY for some Big Fluke to arrive!!

The RFA (which I am a member) has a trip scheduled for June 29th, we need 10 more guys who feel the passion for an awesome organization that works hard for us every day. Tickets are $120, for all the details of what is included or if you'd like to book please reach out to Dave Daly at

973-479 7768.  This is an awesome day, great fun with many of the legends from NJFISHING.com! We will be busting Butt to get it done!
