Most have captains meetings Friday evening, but those wishing to fish Saturday s Raritan Bay Anglers Fluke Tournament must check in at 8 tonight at the Moose Lodge in Perth Amboy. At Atlantic Highlands, Capt. Rob Semkewyc of the Sea Hunter reports Wednesday was his poorest trip for keepers in over a week though there were lots of shorts.
Yesterday was our slowest day with keepers in over a week. If you want to catch fish we can usually accommodate you, keep you busy reeling fish in and enjoying the day, and occasionally see a nice big keeper.
Atlantic Highlands fluke fishing July 10 10 July 2019 Capt. Tom Made both morning and afternoon trips again today fishing in Sandy hook bay. We are half day fishing for fluke everyday making two trips (8am to 12 30 and 1 30 to 6pm).
Very good short action then we would see a keeper, make another drift same thing till we started to move. John (your dead to me) had good action also with multiple fish, a nice keeper and a keeper that he tossed back.

However, it was Joe Massa, of My Three Sons at Morgan Marina who had the best fish reports today both here and overseas. The Sunday trip also worked out well as he jigged a 27-inch, 8-pound fluke over on the NY side as they also added a few other large fluke.
