Bait was yet to school the channels, though the water was 71 degrees, so bait should be there, Capt. Ron from the Fishermen wrote in a report on the party boat’s website. Freshwater runoff that never seemed to go away could be the reason. A few trips aboard scored okay on fluke, but nothing like last year. The angling was no good lately. Ron pulls no punches in reports, he said. He gives 110 percent, and the crew is the best, the boat is a good clean one, and the atmosphere is friendly, he said. Fishing is the only thing he can’t control. He always says “patience,” he said, but man! Back at it today, with a positive attitude, working hard, he said. The boat is fishing for fluke 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily and 3:30 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday through Sunday, and for striped bass 3:30 to 9 p.m. every Monday.

Catching a few fluke, better on some trips than others, pretty much the same as before, said Capt. Tom from the party boat Atlantic Star. Trips fished Sandy Hook Bay and at Flynn’s Knoll, and no great numbers bit. Neither morning nor afternoon trips consistently fished better. No pattern of any bait or tackle catching best could be seen. Sometimes rental-rodders caught. Sometimes anglers who worked hard did. Trips are trying hard, catching a few fluke. Some of the fish were bright-colored, apparently because they arrived from the ocean. Some were dark, apparently because they’d swum the bay a while. Trips are fluke fishing 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 6 p.m. daily.
