Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

Another nasty day, only today we had South wind against the outgoing tide! Didn't blow as hard as yesterday but it sure was cranky as hell.

Caught a few fish once again close, the gannets were working hard, fish moving fast. Didn't last long there as we headed down the beach.

Ran South and had a couple nice drifts right away, mostly shorts and an odd bluefish with a couple keepers mixed in.

Ocean naturally got worse as the day went on and current ran harder. Stopped several times in the birds working and fish busting all around the boat, only to pick at a couple keepers and some shorts. Very frustrating to say the least as we couldn't get the bite going.

Fish didn't leave as we saw them but didn't catch them like we wanted. Ralph fiinished out his day with a beautifull 11 pound cod. Pool fish went to  Jack at 14 pounds.

Not sailing Wednesday with gail winds. Thursday till Saturday looks much better as Saturday will be our final trip for 2011.

Thanks,

Sorry guys but what we got today was a "BUTT KICKING". Not sure but I think my ass is purple!

Started the morning close to home on some great bird life in-between the channels. Had a couple shots at the shorts and a nice keeper. Fish were chasing Herring and a little tough to catch.  No one tried a croc!

Headed down the beach, to look for some better action.
As the Sun got higher, the wind blew harder. Knew when we stopped and put her on the drift it was gonna get ugly....and it did. NW a steady 30.
 Found the life and just picked at the fish most of the day, inshore, offshore didn't matter as it was just as nasty everywhere.

NO lack of readings, plenty of fish but even with the 67's and the best of the fishermen, it was tough.
Wind is supposed to crap out overnight and go light South. Won't get rainy or nasty till we are already home. Looks like a much better fishing day.
Wednesday looks like it's gonna be out, the rest of the week should be O.K. and Saturday will be our Swan song!
Thanks, see you in the AM.
