Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association Report:  8/11

There are decent numbers of fish in the inshore waters off Beach Haven, but these fish are spread out, especially the fluke. The captains who belong to the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are benefiting from that organization. The boats are fishing in different areas and sharing their results with each other. In this way, all of the captains and their anglers benefit from that information.

 

Captain Gary Dugan of the “Irish Jig” reports a noticeable increase in his fluke action. There are enough short fish to keep everyone busy pulling in fish, and every trip been providing at least one fluke for the cooler. His most recent trip resulted in seven nice keepers.

 

Captain Jimmy Zavacky and t he crew from the “Reel Determined” took Boy Scouts of American Troop #112 from Jacobstown out on the “Star Fish.” The larger boat was needed due to the 18 active anglers. With this many lines in the water there were many fish brought over the rail, and sea bass and fluke to take home.

 

Captain John Lewis reports that after a couple of disappointing trips last week, he is back on the fluke again. The fish had moved and he notes that with cooperation from some other captains of the BHCFA he has had some very good numbers of fish recently. The catch and release fishing is very good with a number of nice keepers providing fish dinners.

 

Captain Carl Sheppard reports he has been running the “Star Fish” on two 4-hour trips a day. He says they are catching a mixture of bluefish, sea bass, fluke and porgies. Some have been good sized, but for every keeper, they average four to five throwbacks. As August warms the waters, he expects to start running more full day offshore trips for pelagic species.

NJ Fishing Report: July 6-July 12

Fishing has been red hot up and down the coast of New Jersey for just about any species in season. Fluke fishing has been excellent in the deepwater ocean spots as well as the Raritan Bay, masses of peanut bunker in the backwaters have been working great when livelined for doormats. Seabass fishing although the limit is at 2 is a great way to add a few more filets to the dinner table. Offshore and inshore as well chunking and jigging for Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna  has been excellent with plenty of shark action to be had.

North Jersey:

Fisher Price IV  Atlantic Highlands, NJ :

Captain Derek Bielitz “This week we switched over to our summertime schedule of fluke and tuna trips. Wednesday we were offshore and had a nice pick of bluefins going 4 for 6 on fish to 60 lbs. We will continue to sail for tuna through the month of September. We were able to fluke a few times this week and saw up and down results. Friday was good fishing with 16 keepers to 5 lbs coming into the boat for 4 anglers. We will continue to sail for fluke and tuna through the summertime and will be running open boat trips as well as charters for both. To inquire about charter availability or open boat call 732-861-3394 or email Captderek1@yahoo.com.”

Captain Lindsay Fuller “June Bug took a party on a half day trip on friday.  We went to the AC Reef.  Weather and sea conditions were fantastic.  The water temp at the Reef was 78.6.  We found some small Bluefish that were fun on light tackle.  They would not bite bait or casting lures.  We had to troll #2 Clark Spoons to get them.  After that slacked off, we bottom fished drifting and caught one keeper Fluke. We have a Full Day Inshore trip tomorrow and we hear that the small Blues and Chub Mackerel are around several reefs so we will go take a look.” To speak with Captain Lindsay about charter availability  call 609-685-2839 or email captlindsay@fish-junebug.com

Captain Scott Newhall “Fluke continue to dominate the back bay and nearshore scene in the Atlantic City area.  When the water is clear and conditions are good, one can expect to catch some keepers.  Mornings after monsoon thunderstorms or 25mph southwest winds are slower. So in this region, it’s all about the conditions.

Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association Report: 

The Junior Mates Program of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association is moving full speed ahead. This week’s session includes first aid training which will result in credentials good for two years. Completion of this session will meet the captain’s licensure requirement for first aid. In addition, the BHCFA is selling colorful new T-shirts with the proceeds helping to finance the Junior Mates Program. Upcoming classes include hands-on instruction by Canyon Reels on setting drags, a presentation by Jim Hutchinson Jr., the editor of “Fisherman” magazine, and class work and preparation for New Jersey Boater Safety certification.

 

Right now inshore fluke fishing has been receiving the attention of the captains of the BHCFA. An added bonus when fishing at the inshore wrecks and artificial reef sites has been the re-opening of the black sea bass season. Although the daily limit is just two fish, it helps to fill out the fish box with some tasty fillets.

 

Captain Carl Sheppard of the “Star Fish” has been fishing with much success for both fluke and black sea bass out to 100′ depth. With the reopening of sea bass season, all of his parties have been limiting out every trip. The “Star Fish” is one of the few area charter boats capable of taking out up to20 passengers and fishing 12 at the same time.

 

Captain Gary Dugan on the “Irish Jig” has experienced some good fluke fishing on the inshore artificial reefs. One trip his anglers returned with 8 nice keepers. He reports he has had to work for his fish, but the results have been worth the effort.

 

 

NJ Fishing Report: June 29-July 5

I hope you all had a fun and safe Independence Day weekend! With the heart of the summer ahead of us may fisherman have turned there focus to fluke and offshore fishing. Reports have started rolling in from the canyons where bluefin and yellowfin fishing is really starting to pick up. Fluke fishing as well has been hot in the Raritan Bay where live peanut bunker are catching some very nice limits and the deep water haunts on the ocean side are picking up as well.

Captain Scott Newhall “The fluke continue to be the mainstay for anglers inshore.  They are deep in the back bays, the inlet, and now they are getting stronger in their favorite ocean haunts.  Anglers using peanut bunkers, minnows and spots are scoring with those in the bay systems.  Berkley Gulp Alive offerings continue to catch big as well.  The 6″ grub on the bucktail with a teaser of a 5″ swimming mullet works well.  Sharks are supplying a lot of action with a wide variety of species around to pull the line.  Browns, Sand Tiger, Hammerhead, Dusky, and Makos range from inshore to the depths.” To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729

Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association Report:

Fluke fishing in the Beach Haven area has been proving productive for the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association while offshore fishing has also been attractive.

Captain Dan Skrzat of the “Get Reel” fished a couple of days recently in 67-degree water in the ocean at the Twenty Line. He released one brown shark and kept a strong 120-pound mako shark. A third day he had the crew from Jerry’s Diesel in West Creek out fishing the Twenty Line again, this time for tuna. Captain Dan quickly located bait and tuna. He got his “three under” bluefins and released a white marlin. He is pleased to see those fish in close. Later in the day he tried a little sharking but could not raise any.

Captain Jimmy Zavacky helped a young family with four youngsters celebrate the end of the school year with a bay fishing trip. The group managed a keeper weakfish and boated some medium sized bluefish on the troll. Mate Liane Lopez reported the children were fascinated with all of the living creatures, even the live minnows which they played with all day. It was a fish and fun day for the whole family. Another day the McGee crew tried a little reef fishing and managed some huge sea bass which had to be released until they come back in season.

Captain Fran Verdi has been finding some nice fluke fishing the inshore artificial reefs and some of his wreck spots. He had a group of Junior Mates out to catch some fish and learn the basics of proper fishing.

NJ Fishing Report: May 30 – June 6

Striped bass fishing continues to be hot in North Jersey but reports of fluke have been spotty at best. Some fisherman have been able to put together a nice catch but for the most part it has been very hit or miss. Seabass fishing has been excellent if you are able to push out to deeper water where the bigger fish are and hopefully will remain that way until it closes on June 19th. Bluefish are still around but are not as thick as past weeks. I myself fished the Sandy Hook reef area on Saturday and we picked through a lot of small Seabass to get 8 keepers. I ran back inside the hook and drifted for fluke in a few locations with only one keeper at 18″ to show for it. Hopefully fluke fishing will pick up soon.

 North Jersey:

Fisher Price IV  Atlantic Highlands, NJ :

Captain Derek Bielitz “Fishing has been very good this week with some very big fish being caught with the biggest fish tipping the scale at 47 lbs. We have been live-lining, chunking, and trolling spoons when the fish are scattered. We have been averaging pretty much 10-20 bass per trip with only 1 or 2 slower trips.   We still have a few available openings in June so if anyone is interested in getting in on the striped bass fishing, give us a call at 732-861-3394 or email Captderek1@yahoo.com.”

Captain Scott Newhall  “The good news in the Atlantic City waters is that the fluke bite picked up near the week’s end.  It’s not what it has been in some other early June’s, but much- improved catches were definitely seen.  Anglers using Berkley Gulp! baits are scoring best on the incoming tide and around the slack high.  Falling water is fine unless the dreaded snot shows. Gulp swimming mullet, nemesis, and shrimp models are scoring big time in all the colors. Striped bass have made a decent showing along the beaches and Atlantic City jetty system. Call Absecon Bay Sportsman, Riptide Bait and Tackle and One Stop Bait and Tackle in the area for solid land-based information in real time.  Trollers continue to score rogue cows with Bluewater Candy Mojos and Tony Maja Bunker Spoons.  Anglers that can send out a spread including both cover it all.  And don’t forget the snag hooks for nervous bunker pods”  To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729

NJ Fishing Report: May 23-30

Right now it is prime time to catch multiple species of fish on any given trip with good catches of Sea Bass, Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Fluke starting to show as well, all within a few miles of each other. Most have been able to find early limits of quality Sea Bass and will be able to continue to do so until June 19th and Striped Bass fishing in the ocean has been excellent this past week with many charters being able to run dual purpose Seabass/Striped bass trips on the good days!

Biggest fish of the week came in at 22”, and most of the flounder have primarily been feeding on grass shrimp, crabs, and small spearing.   Striped bass fishing has taken a turn toward early morning  and evening / nighttime with an increase in water temps, this increase has also caused the topwater bass bite to improve making for some explosive strikes and awesome visuals.

Live lining, Tony Maja bunker spoons and Bluewater Candy Mojos are the ticket.  The further north one gets, the better chance at the bass.  Fluke overall have been a disappointment thus far in this region.  Very few, extremely skilled experts have put up some good catches only to go back on the next trip and get blanked. The grass is bad and the consistency is lacking in this area.  Everyone is hoping for it to pick up and get as strong as it iin many a May.  For those that like wreck fishing, seabass have been chewing hard and with keepers aplenty.”  To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729 timeout1

Nj Fishing Report: May 9-23

It was an exciting week for fishing in NJ this week, Saturday fluke season opened and just today a short window for sea bass opened. Striped Bass fishing has continued to be a success when you can find pockets of fish not covered up by blues and the ocean fisherman are also starting to see greater success fishing for big post spawn stripers. I fished today in the Raritan and trolled in the AM for bass and only found blues and then bucktailed all over the bay in search of my first fluke and managed 2 keepers, but as water temperatures rise over the next week fluke fishing should pick up.

Captain Scott Newhall “The much anticipated fluke opener was the top billing for this past weekend.  Scores of summer flounder anglers headed out before the mid-day rain the day of the opener and found a slow bite.  The overall catch in Greater Atlantic City waters was disappointing as even the most expert crews had to work hard to put keepers in the boat.  Berkley Gulp! Alive swimming mullets and live minnows were the hot baits for those who caught.  “Snot grass” has made its presence felt like no other May in memory and will continue to make fluke fishing more difficult if it doesn’t take the train and head elsewhere.  Meanwhile bluefish continued to pummel baits and lures in Great Bay and the ocean up until Sunday.  The change in weather pattern chased them from the bay or caused them not to feed while the ocean was too rough for most.  Striped bass could still be found in the rivers and some large cows were take off the beaches for those livelining or dragging Tony Maja spoons.  That bite is sure to pick up in terms of numbers as the bass leave their natal flows and head up the coast.    To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729
