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 April 1 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 25 pounds! Along with being the best looking fish and a good fighter, they also taste great.

We fish till the end of 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 20 inches,1 to 5 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.

Weak Fishing (Sea Trout) season normally runs from the end of September into October. 2005 was one of the better years in a long time. Weakfish are a perfect light tackle fish and range from 14 inches to 12 pounds. Live Worms and Artificial lures make this fishery very exciting.

We finish up the season with our Fall Striper run. Normally from the last week in October through Christmas (weather permitting). Jigging 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

The AM was nothing like yesterday on the bite. We struggled to catch a handful of keepers and some shorts. Tom Krako worked it well despite the slow bite and put 4 nice keepers in the cooler along with Mark, fishing in the Bow who also had 4 fish. All fish, 4 to just under 7 pounds and a tie for the pool. Tom the Vet landed 3 beauties along with a couple others who had 2 or 3 in the box .

Golf pro Doug landed a beauty at just under 7 pounds to tie Mark for the split on the pool, his second keeper came in at 4 pounds.

Capt. Ron Sr., Jimmy, Richie, Moe, Dave, Lenny and a bunch of the regs had a tough day today, some with one and some with none. Had a husband and wife team that came through at the end of the day with 3 great fish in the cooler.

Keepers were all Bigger fish but we had to work our Butt off to catch what we did. Big roll in the ocean and lack of current out there didn't help.......Kudo's to Mark, Tom the Vet and Tom the Hammer for the clinic today, without them, I wasn't looking so good!!

Back at it tomorrow....Capt.Ron
