Atlantic Highlands fluke fishing July 6 06 July 2019 Capt. Tom I guess the weather reports kept most of the people away but we made both morning and afternoon rips today. The weather reports really made for a few people in the afternoon but we went fishing and people missed a good trip.
Vinny then released two stripers, and so did I. Those were my first bass of the year in Shark River where I d never been at the right place at the right time. Persistence also paid off Friday night in Point Pleasant Canan for John Westerdale as he cast swimshads for a 20-inch striper at 6 p. m., a big bluefish at night, and two more 20-inch bass at 1 30 a. m.
The Miss Belmar Princess is sailing daily for blues, stripers and sea bass from 7 30 a. m. 2 30 p. m. and every afternoon for fluke sea bass from 4 30 p. m. 8 30 p. m. The Royal Miss Belmar is sailing daily for fluke and sea bass from 7 30 a. m. 12 00 p. m.
Today we had way too much current to start the day and drifting at 2. Fishing the Ocean, the clarity has been awesome these past 2 days as the runoff is finally starting to dissipate, more bait finally starting to show on the bottom, better late than never in my book.
