Atlantic Highlands fluke fishing July 4 04 July 2016 Capt. Tom Made both morning and afternoon trips again today. We went back to Sandy Hook bay where we had better action picking at shorts and a few more keepers.
Dave Brink, Port Monmouth, NJ, had several keepers up to his 8 pound 9 ounce fish. Tommy Hollywood, Jr., Staten Island, NY, stole the show today, however, when he boated a 10 POUND 8 OUNCE DOORMAT which is the second of his fluking career and our SIXTH DOORMAT of the young fluke season ALREADY!!
Sharpies did limits on Half Day trips on Fluke from 3-6 pounds . Rentals did well also with teaser rigs and Gulp mullet proven by our biggest Fluke of the season caught on Saturday afternoon by 11 year old William Devito Bingmans Twp, Pa.

Capt. Stan Zagleski said fluking started slowly this morning on his Elaine B. II from Bahrs in Highlands due to wind against tide,- but big fluke were featured when wind and tide got together. He heard it was better at Sea Girt Reef, but I talked to a boater at Castaway's Tackle in Point Pleasant this morning who was there that day and only saw one short fluke brought up in a big fleet.
We fished in the Reach channel and had good action all morning with a lot of shorts and the most keepers for a trip so far this year. On the afternoon trip the action was just as good with shorts and a good number of keepers.
