Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

As posted in the past, Stripers love the snot and today was no exception!!
Sailed knowing we only had a short window to catch them with the outgoing tide and hard NW wind.
First fish on within 5 minutes then steady action for the next 3 hours. Many fish between 24 and 29 inches with the bigger ones going 31 to 32 inches.
Rocco Farina had the pool fish at 17 pounds along with his limit.
June, Hammer, Sal, Joe and the rest of the crew all limited out before it was time to go.
Nasty to say the least, but fishable, would never have gone out had conditions been INCOMING TIDE against that wind.
At the change, we headed for home before it really got too bad....Great crew, Great fishing.
New pics and video for today!!


Decided to stay local and do some clamming today after the lack of action jigging the past few days. Glad we did..
Seems the bait bite is getting back to normal, started last night with Capt. Frank having good action on the 3:30pm trip.

Starting to see some smaller fish show as we tossed back many 24 to 26 inchers. Plenty of keepers though with Chris Zotti landing the pool fish at 18 pounds.
Vinny (Vintastic) brought his A game today and did his thing putting 3 keepers in the box. He still leads the big pool at 34 pounds.
Big Jim and Friend caught thier limit, all the time wondering where the Shrimpman was today!!!
Bite lasted till the end of the outgoing than that was it, wind finally started to come on, so it was time to go.
Weatherman once again killed everyone in the Harbor as many boats stayed tied up. Some even canceled Charters with the forcast. What a disgrace that they could be so wrong so often. Most people would loose thier jobs being so inept!!!
Good pics and another youtube vid on the clamming bite!!
