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

We are Home and will begin Fishing on Friday April 19th for Striped Bass. Coming home from the Ship yard today I read loads of fish, unfortunately, they were in NY waters and until Monday the 15th, illegal to catch. I so wanted to stop and just have some fun but I didn't want to be "That Guy"!

The fare this season is $70 for Adults, $65 for Seniors 65 & Older and still $35 for kids under 12.  I've kept the rate down the past couple of years and have seriously tried again this season but you all know it gets to the point where it has to increase to stay afloat.

Sounds like the normal Spring run so far with hit & miss fishing. The third week of April has always been our lucky charm.....hope we hit it right!

I'd also like to Welcome young Joey Gorski jr to the Fishermen this season. Joey as most of you know worked on the Angler for a couple of years. He is a very good deck hand, loves the job and is looking forward to working with our customers.  Joey Pasulli is also chomping at the bit to get going and has been working with me this winter getting the boat ready. Great Boat, Awesome Crew doesn't get any better than this...Looking forward to an awesome 2019 season!!!
