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

Morning started out slow with the end of the tide into the change. Went into search mode and found fish all up high in the water and rolling on top. Had a very good bite on Big Blues for several drifts before it was over. At least we went out with a Bang and caught some fish.  John Campbell, Kutztown, PA was back at it today to land a whole bunch of fish for the smoker, fishing with bait. Richie B. Keansburg, tried top water for a while, had plenty of fish chase the rig but no takers. Bait certainly was the ticket.

Now for the Bad news! The Fluke opener tomorrow (Thursday) is a Wash out! East winds & Rain, out going tide all day, NG. Hopefully Friday will be better.

Worst part is the day's we loose to weather, we don't get back. So if we have crap weather most of the Summer, we are screwed.

NEW AFTERNOON FISHING SCHEDULE FOR 2017: As of Friday the 26th, Capt. Dan will be fishing the afternoon trips from 3:30pm till 9:00pm for Fluke Tuesday through Sunday.
