Bottom fishing has been great! Fishing out of the Highlands makes it possible to fish the Raritan Bay and the Ocean. More options!!
Fluke Fishing in the Highlands has pickup a lot! Great Fluke bite with constant action! Had out limit of fluke +.
Biggest Striped Bass For Michael Monteverde Weighing in at 47lbs. Caught on his light tackle with live Bunker. Epic battle!
We had Rebecca Redington & Alyssa Madosky from @ChicksRippinLips out this past Wednesday May, 2. We started with a slow bite on the troll with only boxing two fish. This slow bite lasted a couple hours. We had to make some moves to find some life and we found it. We spotted some bird activity, headed in that direction and starting marking a huge school of Striped Bass. We threw out the shads and had an immediate triple header. This action lasted for a half hour, with us landing fish after fish.
left the highlands and took a quick ride to scout some spots around raritan bay with Kevin. 10 minutes in and we started marking fish on the side scan. The side scan told us what side to toss the shad to. We had a double header on the first cast. Had our limit + in 5 minutes. All nice fish to 36”. Called it quits after an hour.
Had Mike Mcneely charter out this am. Left the beautiful Sandy Hook Bay Marina in Highlands NJ at 7am, within a few minutes we were in Raritan Bay. We had to do some bouncing around. Not hot and heavy like we had them but we got em. 7 fish in the box and a bunch lost at the boat. I see slobs in the near future.
