Vinnie D'Anton caught one small blue on a Chug Bug, but had his 20-pound leader broken twice by unseen fish There was better news on small blues for the Shore party boat fleet. Matt Slobojian reported from Jim's Tackle in Cape May that Fluke fishing picked up last week on the reefs although the wind kept a lot of boats at the dock.
Atlantic Highlands fluke fishing August 16 16 August 2016 Capt. Tom I can only guess the weatherman kept most of the people away again today but we made both morning and afternoon trips. On the morning trip we had good drifting conditions and we were able to fish the deep of Ambrose channel.
Tom Hollywood, Jr., Staten Island, NY, outfished his dad today with more keepers but it was Tom Sr., who tied for the pool with his good friend Mike. An overall GOOD day of catching and keepers while the bite lasted!
Today we ran a open boat extended Fluke trip and the fishing was very good from the first drift till the last drift. The Fluke were chewing, we had several fish on a time most of the day with keepers and shorts coming over the rails.
