UPDATES ARE POSTED
EVERY THURSDAY,
SOMETIMES ON OTHER DAYS

THE REPORT IS FULLY UPDATED
EVERY MONDAY AND THURSDAY
FROM APRIL THROUGH FALL
Atlantic Highlands
A couple of anglers had beached small, rat striped bass, not many, from the bay at Keyport before the recent cold, said Jay from Julian’s Bait & Tackle. That made fishing look like it would begin to produce, until the cold and snow arrived, though weather was somewhat warmer now. Nobody reported fishing for winter flounder. Sandworms and bloodworms will be stocked Friday. The shop had begun to carry the worms because of warmer weather, then cold began. Fresh clams will be carried next when the supplier makes them available.

Fisherman’s Den North will open for the season on April 1, Tom said. The shop wasn’t open currently, because nothing really happened with fishing locally. No striped bass were even banked from shore on Raritan Bay, really. That’s some of the year’s first angling that will take off. Nobody mentioned winter flounder fishing in the area. Flounder were pulled from Shark River, mentioned in the report below from the store’s sister shop, Fisherman’s Den in Belmar, farther south. Fishing from Atlantic Highlands beginning April 1 will include blackfishing from the port’s party boats. Blackfish season will open throughout that month and be closed afterward.
