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

Had Bill Higgins & Crew from MCCARTER & ENGLISH out with us today for a Charter.....All I can say is "What a difference a day makes!  Finally had decent conditions for a drift all day. The guys slugged away on every drift with Keepers & shorts for some very good action.

Ralph Marra lead the way with 5 nice keepers followed by another fellow with 4 for High hooks. Everyone went home with a Fluke dinner today! Not one jigger among them as it was all bait fishing with some using gulp.....Pink shine was the ticket along with the Fresh Peanut bunker.

I think today had to be the hottest day of the year on the water as the Humidity was unreal. Then again, as Marty Haines used to say.....It's Summer, it's supposed to be Hot! LOL

Open Boat for the Next couple of weeks.....Weekend looks good as any weather should come through after we are back at the dock, especially on Sunday.
