Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

FISHERMEN/Thursdays Fishing Report......

First of all let me say Conditions have been horrible the past 3 days!
If you think for a minute fishing with a 2 knot drift, 12 ounces and more with a nice swell still going on is your Idea of good Fluke fishing..."Your out of your Mind".
Let's finally cut the bullshit, this season has been very tough for all involved, a great day to some now is 20 keepers with GOOD short action, this is what it's come too. Last season by now we had 4 fish over 10lbs, 3 over 11 and many fish in the 5 to 7 pound range. Our largest this season is 9.4. Don't get me wrong, I'd kill for 50 keepers at 18 inches everyday and pass on Big fish if I could do that everyday.

Not happening so far this season and trust me it's not from lack of effort.

I burn more fuel than anyone running every place you can imagine just trying to find a bite and work it. When we do find a small area, the next day it's done and the search continues. Sugar coat it any way you want just remember the fishing is Always Good, it's the catching you want to read about!

Fast drift again today, we picked at the shorts & a handful of keepers along with some Sea Bass. Tough to say the least but we will give it hell once again tomorrow. Should have much better conditions and a better drift with less wind, will see what happens in the AM.

Another Nasty Ocean today with an East wind and strong current.

Made our way out to fish the Ocean, fished a couple area's finding short Fluke, A few keepers, Sea Bass, Trigger Fish & some small Blues through out the day. The Roll was just a pain and very uncomfortable.

Scott Scudieri landed a beauty Fluke at 6.9 pounds for the pool fish.

Hopefully by Thursday things will lay down a bit as the wind goes back into the West. Back at it tomorrow.
