Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

Finally, a day to write about!  Started the morning off with a bang and a nice pick on Keeper Fluke & Sea Bass.

Doc took the early lead in the daily pool on the first drift with a beauty at 7lbs 6 ounces and a second fish at 4 was short lived and topped on the third drift by STEVE (Capt. Chaos). Steve lands a 7lb 10 ounces fish to take the lead.  It's gets better as the next drift Steve slams an 8lb 7 ounce fish. When I though it couldn't get any better, the next drift I hear CHAOS once again!! This time it's the fish of the season so far at 9 pounds 9 ounces!

Every Fluke fisherman lives for a day like today, with over 25 pounds of meat in the cooler on three fish...doesn't get any better than that. The smile on the mans face was priceless, and mine as well!

John Froelich on his first trip this season landed 5 nice keepers jigging all day. Dan, first time fisherman with me, landed his 3 and some nice Sea Bass, Capt. Ron Sr. had three nice keepers and sea bass, Dave B had a couple keepers up to 4 pounds and Sea Bass for dinner.  Hot as Hell but a nice day on the water!

Chartered Wednesday, Friday & Saturday this week.....

Today we had some folks do well and some not so well. Big Bill who has been around the boats for many years fished with his son and put a nice catch of Fluke & Big Sea Bass in the cooler. Rocco Farina who hasn't missed a Birthday trip since 1995 was with us today once again landing a Couple beauties and taking the pool with a nice 5 pound fish.

Couple others had 3 keepers including John Frade who got it done fishing in the bow, along with a bunch of nice Sea Bass around the boat. Tara & Son were back for the first trip this season and also had some nice Fluke along with Sea Bass for a nice dinner. Couple of my better Jig fishermen, Alex, Jake, Joe & Moe had a tough time with mostly short fish today, they had the action but just couldn't find the Big ones. Trust me guys, I feel your pain more than you know!

Bring extra tackle though as we loose a bunch of rigs if you drag them on the bottom. If we don't fish the sticky stuff we catch sharks and not much of anything else, just the way it's been this season, so please come prepared.

Never had to work so hard in all my career to get it done!

We are Booked this Wednesday, Friday & Saturday Morning. Thanks for checking in.
