Capt. Ron Santee had a charter on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands today and was surprised to encounter a large swell that’s never good for bottom fishing. Yet,he managed a decent catch of sea bass plus some porgies and a lone triggerfish. He’s sailing open for bottom fishing in the morning, and advises anglers interested in blackfish to bring a few crabs with them.

No one has been complaining about the Raritan Bay striper fishing. Capt. Frank Masseria of Vitamin Sea from Keyport had another boat limit today on live bunkers and flutter spoons plus jumbo releases. He has availability on the 6 a.m. trip next Saturday. Call 917 439-6448.
