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

After searching half the ocean the past couple of days looking for the bite... today, we tried another new area. Had perfect conditions with the out-going and a West wind, like they say West is best when it's right! Slugged away on the shorts & keepers for most of the Morning.

Dave Bachovin fishing the bow lead the way with 4 keepers and a bunch of shorts, a couple guys with their three but it certainly wasn't the norm...Pool changed hands several times through-out the day with Diane hanging in there with her 4 pound fish till it was topped, then topped again. Big one for the day went 6 pounds.

Not many area's holding fish just yet and to stay in Sandy Hook bay is just dying a slow death, for now. My fuel bill for the past week will prove that. Water temps are good at 70 degrees but I'm not happy with the lack of bait in the channels. Last year to date the reach channel was the place to be, right now it's a dead zone. No bait, no fish, except the occasional lost one that want's to bite. Sharks are plenty once you get deeper than 20 ft.

All we can do is work hard every-day, keep searching and praying that we will be rewarded with banner days ahead!

Back at it tomorrow.
