Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

Found life this morning with no one around....(for a very short time). White water Bass crashing on the Bunkers going nuts! Brian and I were going crazy with the nets as the guys were catching them on Shads and live Bunker. Just a note guys, if you hook a Bunker, don't toss it back, that's what the hell they are eating!!! Had fish up to 18 pounds with Mark landing the Big one for the pool.

Dave B, Doc, Eddie, Capt Ron Sr. and several others all had nice fish. Missed you today Anchor Joe & Andy.

Once the traffic took over it was tough but we still caught some fish. Had to keep moving to stay on them with several drifts catching nothing then we'd have another shot. Very Happy with today's action & catch.

Don't let any report of Rain stop you for tomorrow, the fish don't know it and they are Hungy. A North wind 15 knots is a cake walk for us where we are fishing. It's Striper time Boys!!

All I can say about today is WOW!! Never saw so many boats in all my life.....The life was inc-readable but put down fast with all the traffic. Had a couple shots then went into search mode. Left the area, found gannets working and finally fish that wanted to bite, all by ourselves.

June Benson had the Hot hand in the Bow with 8 fish....Several guys with 2 to 6 fish and a couple of Blues. Joe from Union Beach took the Pool with a very nice 15 pound Striper. Shads and Plain jigs worked best. Loads of bait and the Bass readings were unreal. Water temp was 54 degrees...Perfect for Fall Bass Fishing!

If you are coming for either the Day or Night trip please bring a heavier rod for the eel fishing, with this Moon the current has been super fast and your gonna need a whole bunch of weight when we eel fish, especially at Night.....up to 12 ounces. No noodle rods or 11 foot surf rods PLEASE!

Monday should be a great day with less traffic and less running around.. A chance of showers on Tuesday, but we will be fishing!! Don't wait too long, it won't last forever!
