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

Years ago the day after Thanksgiving would be a Home run for us!

Good Crowds of Customers loaded up with all kinds of Turkey sandwiches for all who sailed. Not so much today. The crew that came out today were fortunate enough to be on the best Striped Bass bite of the season, from the first drift to the last.

Nasty going out and most of the morning with the hard incoming against a 20 knot North wind. You could surely say we were fishing in the Snot!

Saw the bird life from a couple miles away as it stretched from one channel to the other. First drift lasted 40 minutes just catching. Henry fishing the pulpit as usual landed 50 fish by day's end and took the pool on his last keeper of the day. Eric also had close to 50 fish and so on. Everyone went home with dinner.

Going out with a Bang as tomorrow (Saturday),is our last trip.  Sunday & Monday look lousy with the weather, along with the lack of customers coming down it's time to put the boat away.

Hope to see you in the AM!
