Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

Pretty much the same scenario today as yesterday for the morning bite. Bird life in several area's with the smaller fish taking the shads. Fished inshore, offshore, here there and every-where looking for the bigger fish.

Ran back into the Bay working the Bunkers and bait in the afternoon....Didn't spent too much time there as it turned out to be only bait and a Whale. Ran back out into the ocean & the current, had a couple fish on with the eels but it didn't pan out.

Took one last ride looking for the Bail out spot and found it! Bigger fish on Jigs & eels.

Pool Fish went 20lbs second place made 19 and we had a nice 15 pound fish also. Several other nice keepers while it lasted and it made all the running around worth it!

Back at it tomorrow, don't let 1/10 of an inch of Rain over night keep you home, it will clear out early. The fish are still here we just have to work a little harder to catch them.

Lot's of life, lot's of bait, just not a great bite today.

With the wind blowing 25 & gusty it wasn't easy fishing.. Lots of Small fish that had to go back while fishing several area's.
Didn't get a keeper till 12:30 and ended the day with just a few keepers to finish it out. Drifted at 3.9 knots when the wind & tide were together!
The guys who troll told me they usually troll at 4 knots....could have put the rods in the rod holders & probably done better.

Fished in miles of Bunkers tight to the beach & didn't get a bite, the Whale we saw was very happy with his buffet though.

Wasn't only us today as the Black-fish boats had the same tough fishing!

Back at it tomorrow, don't give up! The Fat lady hasn't sung yet....
