Atlantic Highlands Fishing Reports

Had the Monday gang out today for their last shot at the bass.
First drop we landed a nice keeper and a short, had a few more bites then that was it.
Made a couple more drops, ran down the beach looking for some life and found plenty of bunker with nothing in them.
Switched up to fluke fishing for a while waiting for the change of tide. Only caught a keeper a few shorts and some sea bass. Without a drift it was pretty tough.
Ran back up to the North and the current (on the video it looks like we are trolling!!) Started to pick with a couple shots of 2 to 3 on. Shorts and keepers.

Capt.Ron Sr. gave his usual fishing seminar landing 3 and handing one off to a late Fathers day customer. Made the mans day catching his first keeper bass!

Anchor Joe had the pool fish and despite threatening to take out Vintastic on the big pool, it just didn't measure up...3 more days to sweat Vin!
At 3:30 the ocean came alive with bunker and bass busting, I'm sure the night guys will have a blast. Half a rabbit outta the hat is certainly better than none.
Thursday will be the last AM striper trip, afternoons will continue Friday, Saturday and Sunday for now as the night bite seems to be taking hold.
Chartered Friday and Saturday morning...Fluke fishing daily from Sunday on.

Pretty much the same report as everyone else...ran around several areas looking for a good drift, with none to be found. Had plenty of bait just not a good bite.
Started to pick late in the day when the current finally began to move, just not enough to bail the day out.
Vinny Vintastic had 3 very nice fish including the pool fish at 4 3/4 pounds. Hard work with the bucktail payed off for him today.
Bassin in the AM. With the last couple hours of outgoing, will see what happens. We have the Squid and spearing aboard (just in case)! The Fat lady ain't sung yet as Capt. Frank caught fish last night, so there still around.
