Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

With much anticipation we headed for the ocean and the start of the incoming tide. Wanted to try a couple area's to see if there was any life. Saw plenty of gannets, read lots of bait going across the bay. Needles to say several drops outside produced not a bite.
Ran back to shallow water for the afternoon. Caught the change of tide and had a short 20 minute bite, landing 3 keepers a short and a couple fish that were lost. As fast as it started is as fast as it ended once the current started to run. At least we kept the skunk off!! Keepers were in the 28 and 29 inch range, very clean and healthy looking....
Hopefully a better bite tomorrow.
Had everyone prepared for an early day with the reports from yesterdays fishing.......
Thought for the first couple hours the same thing would ring true for us.
Ran all the way to the Rocks, inshore and offshore, didn't see much in the way of bait or fish. Made a couple desperation stops to yield nothing!!
Headed back up North of Scotland, found some bait, still no fish.

Got a call from Capt. Bob on the Flamingo asking what I would do to catch a couple fish?
Told him I'd set his picture on the top of my Christmas tree!!
Headed out to the east, had a half dozen shorts on the first stop, but we were on the change of tide, it was just a pick. With the readings I finally had, we hung in there.
Bite got much better after the change. Good action on the shorts and a nice handful of keepers, with a couple guys catching thier limit to finish out the 2010season.....With the horrible weather for the next few days, it's time to put the lady to bed!
Vinnie "Vintastic" did it again with his second Big Pool in one season. His 39 pounder caught on Oct. 11th, earned him top honors in the fall pool. Good job Vin!!
Thanks to all for sharing your days off with us, we don't survive without you!!
From Robbie, Chris and Myself, you guys are the best...Have a great Holiday and a Very Happy New year. Hope to see you in April 2011!!!!
Capt.Ron
