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

I knew we had a short window of opportunity today to try some Fluke fishing down the beach to start the day so that's where we headed!

We got to make one drift, caught 2 keepers and 6 shorts before the tide changed, the wind came up and the shit hit the fan!

Anchored up and slugged away on the Sea Bass and some ling. Ocean got worse as the day went on but the guys toughed it out till the end.

Please guys, when myself or the crew tell you to hit the bottom and take a couple cranks up so you don't get stuck, and the fish are off the bottom, please heed the advise! Had several guys loose 3-5 rigs today which should never happen if you listen to the crew.

We do this everyday and certainly don't want you to have to incur any additional expense. When I read the fish 8 to 10 feet off the bottom, that's where you need to be......This is almost like "Turn the Handles" Blue or Bass fishing.

Back at it tomorrow Bottom Fishing, Sea bass closes on the 22nd so everyone PLEASE PRAY for some Big Fluke to arrive!!

The RFA (which I am a member) has a trip scheduled for June 29th, we need 10 more guys who feel the passion for an awesome organization that works hard for us every day. Tickets are $120, for all the details of what is included or if you'd like to book please reach out to Dave Daly at

973-479 7768.  This is an awesome day, great fun with many of the legends from! We will be busting Butt to get it done!
