Capt.. Ron Santee of the Fishermen at Atlantic Highlands reports as follows:
This time of year I would much rather be fishing in the Snot! If it ain’t blowin, they ain’t showin! Today was no different.
Flat calm Ocean, plenty of readings but a lousy bite. Covered everything from the Point of the Hook to the Rocks back up to the North then to the West!!!
Ended the day with a couple handfuls of fish.
