Atlantic Highlands, Sandy Hook, Raritan Bay Party Boat Fishing Aboard Captain Ron's Fishermen

Fishing from Atlantic Highlands and the Sandy Hook Area offers us the best of both worlds, The Ocean and the Bay!

We primarily fish the ocean, rocks, wrecks, reefs and open bottom. But on those days where it's questionable, we have the calm sheltered waters of SandyCapt. Ron Santee hook and Raritan Bay. Lot's of spots to choose from. Atlantic Highlands is centrally located at the shore, in the middle of the state. Easy access for customers from NY, PA, Northern and Southern NJ.

Most Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Fish species we target actually migrate to this area to spawn and spend the summer months, less time riding and more time fishing for our customers!!!

Season starts in April fishing for Striped Bass.

Stripers are one of the most exciting fish out there. The average size is 24 to 48 inches or 5 to 40 pounds! Along with being the best looking fish and a good fighter, they also taste great.

We fish till Mid June then switch to Fluke fishing for the Summer months.

Fluke (or Summer Flounder) are bottom dwellers. We fish several areas for Fluke, depending on the time of season. The Bay, Ocean, Channels, nothing is out of our reach. The average size Fluke for our area run 14 to 30 inches,1 to 10 pounds. However, several fish each season are caught  between 10 and 14 pounds! Fluke are a challenge to catch, that’s what keeps customers coming back.

We finish up the season with our Fall Striper run. Normally from the last week in October through Christmas (weather permitting). Jigging or Bait Fishing between the channels, in the bay or down the beach, this is probably the most exciting time of year. Fish are migrating for the winter and are normally very hungry.............If you haven’t fished with us before, give us a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you! Capt. Ron Santee

Captain Ron's Latest Fishing Report

All of my customers who know me and for the new customers who have become regulars, you know I pull no punches with my reports, I don't sugar coat anything. I will always give you a 110% effort, the best crew on the dock for service, a good clean boat, A customer friendly atmosphere, everything to make your day a good one. The only thing I can't control is the fishing and fishing this season has been horrible! A few trips have produced and did OK, nothing like the fishing last year at this time by any means. Doesn't keep us from coming to the boat everyday looking to bust ass. With that being said....

I'm still not seeing the bait in the channels, with the water temp at 71 it should be there.....could be all the fresh water run off which never seems to go away. Today, I fished the last of the incoming where we have been catching some nice keepers, found mostly short Fluke. Waited till the change of tide as the weather-asses called for West wind. Knew with that report "West would be Best" Took a 40 minute ride to catch the change and perfect conditions to only have the wind go South as I set up on the drift!!! Every man has his limits and today I reached mine!

Back at it tomorrow with a positive attitude working hard to get it done. I always say "Patience" but for Christ's sake...give me a break!
