Fluke fishing is hot up and down the coast, even I am limiting out most trips so don’t wait there is only about a month left. A few of our reporting captains have some open space so give them a call!….seriously

North Jersey:

Fisher Price IV  Atlantic Highlands, NJ :

Captain Derek Bielitz “Fluking this week has been very good with limits or near limit catches coming up from the rough bottom. We have been seeing some nice fish to 8.5 lbs this week.  We will continue to fish for fluke till the season closes on September 25th as well as tuna when the weather allows us to get offshore. Also we are currently taking reservations for the fall striped bass season as well as fall blackfishing trips.” To inquire about charter availability or open boat call 732-861-3394 or email Captderek1@yahoo.com

Time Out Charters Absecon, NJ

Captain Scott Newhall  “Summer flounder dominate the entire coast.  When the bite is on, the fishing can range from good to occasionally obscene, in the event some bigger fish are around.  Ocean structure is the ticket.  Whether a wreck, rubble or rocks make sure to get away from bare bottom sand.  Mahi are around and close to shore.  Tiny fish to gaffers are within 15 miles of the hill.  Hammerhead sharks, and some big ones, were around . The a.c. reef last week”  To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729




Vet Craft Sportfishing  Cape May, NJ

Captain Harvey Yenkinson  “Very good fishing this week with fish 25-26″ every day. Quite a few 23-21 as well. The big ones really accumulate on the structure in August and September. Nice seabass to 18″ as well.” To speak to Captain Harv about open boats or charters call Weekdays:610-793-4468 Cell: 610-742-3891




Badfish Charters Ocean City, NJ

Captain Brian Williams  “Great fishing continues this week. The backbay have seen an explosion in mullet populations with the striped bass on their tail at nearly every outfall creek.  The flounder for the most part have made their way to the inlets and nearshore reefs with a lots of life on almost every offshore snag with some very large fish near that  double digit weight. The tog are becoming very active at most backbay bottom haunts.   And the mixed bag of warm water species like Spanish macks, redfish, triggerfish and mahi mahi seem to be showing face around our area.  Tons of bait fish inshore nearshore and offshore with bunker and peanuts both out front now.  Water temps are holding around 80 in the bays and 76 along the oceanfront.” To book a trip call/email Captain Brian 856-371-4346 or Bwilliams@ocnjfishing
