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

First couple drifts were slow to start the morning, once the change went through we started slugging away. Had Fish & Wildlife out with us recording some of the customers catches, 9 Customers were selected and at the end of the day just those 9 totaled 84 short fish!! With the rest of the boat it had to be close to 250 shorts going back!

Several of the guys still managed 2 nice keepers along with some Sea Bass. Sea bass didn't bite as well as the weekend, I think the swell had something to do with that.  Bill V, Keyport, finally had a couple nice fish including the pool fish at just under 7 pounds. Lenny had two nice fish along with Danny, Howie and a couple others.  My Sunday jiggers couldn't get it done though, so they are on a time out till next week!! Bait was the better of the two ways to fish for us today.....Back at it tomorrow.

CHARTERED SATURDAY MORNING THE 29TH.
