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

Slow drift once again in the AM, even with the buck-tail fishermen we didn't produce like I wanted. Tried the channel and found not much life just a couple fish. Went back to the shallow water and worked some rough bottom. Picked away on the shorts with a few keepers waiting for that change of tide.

Got the outgoing and the bigger fish started to bite, glad we had some patience today!! Stayed late giving the guys a shot at some nicer fish.

Anchor Joe waited till the end of the day to change his spot and land the pool fish at 6.4 pounds!
Tom and Gerry Krako combined for 5 nice fish, one at 5 1/2 another at 4 pounds. Billy fishing in the bow had 4 and Jim landed 3 beauties. Kelly also had 2 very nice fish fishing in the bow with his son Tim.
Capt. Ron Sr. had another limit "Old School style" working the bait.

Back at it tomorrow....
