ANGLER Fishing Reports


September 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday report.   Sunday was another good day of mixed bag fishing on the ANGLER.   Plenty of nice Porgies to start the day and then we fished some wrecks with Tog, Porgy and big Sea Bass that are released.

Archie Stewart from Nutley, NJ had the pool Tog today.

With hurricane Jose nearby, the ANGLER is NOT SAILING until the end of the week





September 15, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday report.
















We had the Langan company charter today who enjoyed beautiful weather and plenty of Porgies plus whale and dolphin watching.   We were able to find some nice Triggerfish today, but did not try for Tog.   We have crab baits for the weekend and will look for Tog after we get our Porgies.   The boys did a great job filleting all the fish.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


September 14, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday report.
   Kirk Davis from Rumson, NJ had the pool with a 5-pound Tog.   The Porgy fishing is great and when we have enough, we put in the extra time and effort to look for some Tog and Triggers.

PRIVATE CHARTER ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP

7:00 AM SATURDAY & SUNDAY


September 13, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report.
   Porgy fishing is red hot as it has been for a while.   We had to re-anchor a number of times to stay on the drop, as the tide change was early.   Almost all of the fish are keepers but most folks are only keeping the bigger fish.   Today, the Tog were all shorts and when we had our fill of Porgies we looked to the west where we normally catch Triggers, but it was all Porgies again.   Erik from Colts Neck, NJ had the daily pool with a jumbo Porgy.   Thursday's weather looks great.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT

PRIVATE CHARTER ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP


September 12, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER fishing report.
   Our last trip was Sunday September 10 when we had drop-and-reel Porgy fishing.

It was a little sloppy with more wind than forecast, but everyone had a limit of fish again.   Chet from Elizabeth, NJ won another pool with a Tog.

e are not sailing on Mondays and Tuesdays until Sea Bass opens and are enjoying a few nice days off.

NEXT TRIP WEDNESDAY 7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

PRIVATE CHARTER ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP



September 9, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday report.
   Porgy fishing is as good as it gets with all who fish for them getting their limit.   We are putting the effort and extra time in to fish spots that have Blackfish and Triggers with the porgies.   Some folks like Archie and Chet fish crabs all day and are happy to keep just one and release a bunch.   Lou started filleting at 9 AM and cleaned fish all day.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

CHARTERED NEXT FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

NOT SAILING MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS UNTIL SEA BASS OPENS


September 8, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday report.
   Some fish to start the day and all you wanted to end the day.   We had very good Porgy fishing as in drop and reel.   Tony Smith from Plainfield, NJ took the pool with a Tog.   We will have crabs on board tomorrow for those who want a Blackfish after their fill of Porgies.   If you waited a couple of seconds after hooking the first bite, you had a double-header.   Saturday and Sunday look great.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


September 7, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER final Fluke report and schedule.
   We needed the extra time on Tuesday to find a good bite of nice Fluke.   We are missing the fall run of Fluke after missing the early season with a late start.   We had good catch-and-release fishing with our kid's charter a week before the season opened, and commercial hook-and-line fishermen killed the Fluke weeks before we could fish.   The regulatory deal we got this year really hurt us.

We are moving on to Porgies, Triggerfish and Tog.   The ANGLER is sailing 7 AM to 2 PM Wednesday through Sunday.  The fare is $65 and our galley is open.

7:00 AM PORGIES, TRIGGERFISH & TOG – FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

NOT SAILING MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS UNTIL SEA BASS OPENS


September 5, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   It is a shame the Fluke season is over.   We fished many areas in the last few days and the fall run is just getting started.   We had some fish in the ocean yesterday and in the bay today.   We ended today with nice keepers in an area we didn't fish this year with a high hook of five keepers.   Yesterday, Pat Barzone from Norwood, NJ had the pool and today Shorty Lewis from Patterson, NJ had the first fish pool and the daily pool.   Ray and Mike won the Season and Monthly Pools.
Thanks to all the Flukers who sailed with us.

NEXT TRIP IS 7:00 AM FRIDAY – PORGIES, TRIGGERFISH & TOG – FIRST BOAT OUT

NOT SAILING MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS UNTIL SEA BASS OPENS


September 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.
   We were limited Saturday with the east wind and returned to the north where the seas were calm and we found some keeper Fluke mixed in with good short life.   The Fluke are moving and we found fish where we normally catch them at this time of the year.   It is a shame the federal regulations are shutting us down when the fishing is getting better.   Rich Duran from Toms River, NJ had the pool fish on our last drift of the day.

SPECIAL TRIPS LABOR DAY AND TUESDAY – 6:30 TO 3:30 – FARE $75

September 1, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.    It was breezy this morning out of the North so we went up by the Islands where we had good conditions and calm seas.   We haven't fish there in months, but found plenty of shorts with some nice NY keepers mixed in.

Mr. Kim from Parlin, NJ won the pool today and went home with a limit catch.   The ocean should be in good shape tomorrow.

August 31, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   We wanted to fish the ocean for a combo of Fluke and Sea Bass as it is the last day to keep Sea Bass for a while.   Well, the ocean was still a mess from Tuesday's blow and not much was feeding.   We retreated to where we had fish Monday and were able to make a few folks happy.   Merle had the Dollar Fish for the first keeper and went on to make a limit catch, which gets a star on a tough day.   Marvin Tyler from Newark, NJ has been on a pool winning roll and did it again today with a nice 34-inch Fluke.   Fishing should get better with each new tide.

August 29, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report update.
   We got to the Point of Sandy Hook on Monday and headed down the beach, but it was nasty and we turned around for the safety and happiness of all aboard.

Grace had driven 3 hours to take her granddaughter Hannah on her first party boat trip and it was a success.   Thank God for the calm waters of Sandy Hook Bay.   Hannah had 10 Fluke including one keeper and had a ball.

It was mostly shorts on Monday, but Caesar took the daily pool with a nice 6-pound Fluke.   Another fellow in the bow said his 5-pound Fluke was his personal best.   We will let it calm down tomorrow and sail on Thursday at 7:00 AM

NEXT TRIP THURSDAY


August 27, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   We had an all-day bite with loads of big Fluke.   It was a fast drift and you needed the weight, but those who could did very well.

Ray Slodowski from Toms River, NJ was leading the Big Pool with an 8-pound 10-ounce Fluke until yesterday when Mike Holodinski won the pool with an 11-pound 8-ounce beauty.   Today, we started a new Big Pool and Ray Slodowski is the new leader with a beautiful 9-pound 1 1/2-ounce Fluke.    Tom the hammer had a 28-inch Fluke that weighed less than Ray's.   There were lots of limit catches and 5-, 6- and 7-pound Fluke today.

The weather is not looking good for the next three days, but we will be at the boat Monday morning to check it out.  Sorry, no galley.


August 26, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.   Yesterday's post said the big ones are biting and we proved it with two Fluke weighing over 10 pounds today.

Mike Holodinski
from Hillsboro, NJ had the biggest at 11-pounds 8-ounces winning half of the Big Pool and taking the lead in the Monthly Pool.

Paul Schouckalo caught his personal best at 10-pounds 8-ounces moments later on the same drift.   We also had two other giants on today.

A new Big Pool starts tomorrow with $1,075 in the pot and no leader.   The Monthly Pool is over $1,300.

Sunday looking good and Monday may be okay, but we will have to see what develops after that.

August 25, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
BIG Fluke are biting & time is running out.
   There were many double limits and personal bests today.

Richard Engle from Wayne, NJ took today's pool with an 8-pound 9-ounce Fluke, missing the Season Long Big Pool by an ounce and equaling the Monthly Pool.

Paul had his five-year old son Johnathan out and an 8-pound Fluke.   Bait and jigs worked well today.   The weekend looks great.

August 24, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   We had perfect weather today for a nice gang of angler regulars.   Fishing was good with the jiggers doing best with limit catches and some big Fluke.   There was a slow drift to start the day with jigging being best and a steady pick of Fluke and Sea Bass.

Chuck was out with his daughter Victoria who did great with the Sea Bass and he caught big Fluke.   Chuck won the pool with an 8-pound 6-ounce Fluke and had a 7 1/2 pounder to go with it.   Conditions are looking good for a while and we found some nice Fluke in a new area.

12 DAYS LEFT AND THE RIGHT FLUKE WOULD BE WORTH OVER $3,500!

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN



August 23, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   After yesterday's strong south wind and the forecast of 25-knot northwest wind today, we did not want to take a chance of going back to the ocean where we had a good day yesterday.   We went to the west in Raritan Bay where they had caught fish yesterday.   We picked all day with a limit catch or two, but it was not the action we expect.   We spoke to the other boats and they said the fishing was much better yesterday.

We expect to have good Fluke fishing the next two days after today's west wind.   Bring your heavy gear; we are fishing the ocean's rough stuff for Big Fluke.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   We fished a number of different areas today.   We started where we fished yesterday and saw a lot more shorts with keepers mixed in, but less Sea Bass.   We then fished a new area and found plenty of Sea Bass and big Fluke.

Jay got the daily pool with a Fluke around 6 pounds that jumped on his bait as soon as it hit the bottom.   A young lad named Kevin was out with us today and he caught his Sea Bass limit plus two keeper Fluke.   Great job and congratulations, Kevin!

The wind got us just as it was time for three whistles, which was a good thing.   The bow was the place to be today with limits and the pool.

TWO WEEKS LEFT

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 21, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.
    Good fishing today with BIG FLUKE, Sea Bass and limit catches.   Tommy Fetter from Belford, NJ won the Daily Pool, but missed the  Monthly Pool by an ounce with a 28-inch 8-pound 8-ounce Fluke.   The leader Bill Karg had at least five keepers and today's Dollar Fish.  John and Bill also had limit catches in the stern, which was the place to fish today.

Only15 days are left in the NJ Fluke season.   There is over $2,100 in the Season Pool and over $1,200 in the Monthly Pool.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 20, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
The morning was horrible with too fast a drift for deep water.   We didn't catch much, there were tangles, and it wasn't fun.   It is all about a good time and fun and that didn't happen until the afternoon.   The wind slowed and we found some hungry Fluke to end the day and we fished late to catch some more nice Fluke.

Mike had the last fish of the day, a 10 3/4-pound doormat Fluke.   This was his personal best, but he was not in any pools.

Doug Kay AKA Duke of Fluke from Union Beach, NJ had another good day with a limit catch that included a 6 and 7-pound Fluke.

The weather is looking much better for tomorrow.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 19, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.
    We had good fishing with good conditions except for a big swell.   Marvin Tyler from Newark, NJ won another daily pool with a Fluke over 7 pounds.   He had a couple of other big keepers including a 6 pounder.   Pat was high hook with six nice keepers and Joe had four.   There were plenty of big Sea Bass for those who had a hard time getting keeper Fluke.   The weather looks good all week.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
    We will NOT SAIL on Friday.    All our fishing has been in the ocean and we do not like the southerly breeze.   In addition, with the rain in the forecast, we do not think there will be many folks down.   They are catching shorts in the Bay and we are sure there will be a half-day boat if you have to go tomorrow.

Fishing today was tough with more wind than forecast and a fast drift.   Some folks like Matt from Hillsboro, NJ who jigged a limit catch and the pool were able to put it together.   There were other limit catches today.   We are sure all will sleep tonight as we rolled all day.

NEXT TRIP SATURDAY BY 7:00 AM – GALLEY OPEN


August 16, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
    Today was a nice day with a small swell that did not hurt the Fluke fishing with an all-day bite and some big Fluke.   Tom Karg had am 8 1/4-pound Fluke to take the daily pool and he was close to his brother Bill who is leading the Monthly Pool with an 8-pound 9-ounce Fluke.   Second place was a 7 1/2-pound Fluke.   Some folks had limit catches and a good amount of Sea Bass today.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 15, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   Rain was not a problem for most of the day and most folks didn't bother with rain gear.   We had to leave where we had our best fishing yesterday, but found some nice keepers in a new area.   There were nice Sea Bass in the mix of keepers and shorts.   We lost one really good Fluke today .   It must be shark week because we had another big one circle the boat today.

ONLY 21 DAYS LEFT IN THE NJ FLUKE SEASON

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

NO GALLEY WEDNESDAY 8/16


August 14, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.

Bruce (Frugal Fisherman) won today's pool and had a limit plus, giving away his extras.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

NO GALLEY WEDNESDAY 8/16


August 13, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   Today was a nice day with plenty of action for a gang of ANGLER customers.   Some folks could not get away from the Sea Bass while others had limits of Fluke.

Doug Kay from Union Beach, NJ lived up to his nickname of the 'Duke of Fluke' and limited out and won a nice daily pool.

Jim Custer needs a trophy for the way he brought a 299-pound shark to the boat on 15-pound test line.   We released it unharmed.   If any customers who took pictures of the shark send us a photo, we will post it.

A big Fluke on the ANGLER could be worth a bundle of dough

Only 23 days remain in the New Jersey Fluke season

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 12, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.
   The drift was on the fast side today which were not good jigging conditions and bait was best.   There were many more Sea Bass than Fluke, but the keeper Fluke were nice.

Roger Lee from Parlin, NJ had the pool fish, which was his third pool in two days.

Northwest winds are in the forecast for tomorrow, which should be good for fishing the beach.

Big Pool is over $2,000 and the Monthly Pool over a grand

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN




August 11, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
   The ANGLER has been fishing the same area all week with some big Fluke and Sea Bass.   Bring the Gulp and the jigs.   The winds look good for tomorrow, but there is a chance of showers, so there should be plenty of room.

Robin from Norwood, NJ won the daily pool today.   He was here with his buddy Doug who jigged a limit catch of Fluke.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 10, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
  Frank Aquila from Parlin, NJ had the dollar first keeper pool with a 25-inch Fluke over 7 pounds and it held up all day for the daily pool.

Not much wind or drift all day and the jiggers did best again, but we also had some nice fish on bait.   Winds are looking good for Fluke fishing for a while.

26 DAYS LEFT IN THE NJ FLUKE SEASON

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN





August 9, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   The drift was slow today and folks with lite jigs had non-stop action.   There were plenty of Sea Bass caught on bait with some real jumbos to over 4 pounds.

Barry and Harry were hot in the stern with big fish with Barry just beating his buddy for the daily pool.

Not much breeze is in the forecast for the rest of the week so spinning gear with jigs and Gulp will work best.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 8, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
It was nice to be out after yesterday's rain with a good bunch of ANGLER regulars.

We had good action right away with some keepers, plenty of shorts and some Sea Bass.   There was a big swell from yesterday's blow and the drift was quick, but some folks could handle it and did well.

Bill Gilleran from Bridgewater, NJ had a 7-pound and 5-pound Fluke to take the daily pool and a couple of other keepers.   Fluke fishing should be better tomorrow.

4 WEEKS 28 DAYS LEFT TO FLUKE FISH

August 6, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   We had good fishing all day with very good action on Fluke and Sea Bass.   Archie Stewart from Nutley, NJ was constantly into fish on his birthday and took the daily pool with a Fluke over 7 pounds.   There were many more fish than we have been seeing recently.

The TV and radio weather forecasts are calling for a wash out on Monday and we will NOT shape up.

We had a south wind on Friday that killed the fishing, and the same south wind is in the forecast for tomorrow.   Tuesday is looking great with northwest winds again and they are the best winds for the fishing we do.

NOT SAILING MONDAY AUGUST 7

7:00 AM TUESDAY FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 5, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.
   The early morning rain kept many people from a very nice day on the ocean.   We fished a new area and had a load of shorts with some folks catching their limit.

Marvin Tyler from Newark, NJ had the daily pool and his limit.  Big Gulps and fluke ribbon baits worked best on the keepers.

A northwest wind tonight should lay down the swell and give us a beautiful day Sunday.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN





August 4, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
   Fluke fishing was not too good today with the southerly wind making the drift too fast offshore.   There were more Sea Bass than Fluke today.   Brian from Philly took the daily pool.

Saturday looks much nicer, and News 12 just took the rain out of the forecast after 4 AM.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   No wind with a slick ocean gave us no drift and a slow pick today.   A few folks did okay by casting Gulp and they had limit catches.   At the end of the day, the breeze picked up and we had our best fishing.

ANGLER regular, Bill Chiavarini from Piscataway, NJ had his limit and won the daily pool.   All we need is a breeze to give us a nice drift and the Fluke will come with it.   We are fishing offshore and the bottom is sticky, so bring the right tackle.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN





August 2, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   We had some nice Fluke again today with limit catches, but there was very little drift with no wind until the end of the day.   The bigger Gulp grubs were better today.   Ray was out two days in a row with his limit again and just missed the daily pool.   George from Pennsylvania had a 25-inch 6-pound pool fish.   When the wind picked up for our last drift, we had some keepers, and a number of large Black Drum broke some lines, but one was not so lucky.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


August 1, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.

We love Fluke fishing and hate the fact that there are only 36 days left in the season.   This should be a banner week and we run open every day.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


July 30, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   Went to where we had our good fishing last week and it started out hot with our first limit at 8:24 AM, but the boat traffic killed it and we had a slack period until we found a new area.

Small baits worked better today, and 6-year-old Noah had the pool fish on a rental rod with two spearing.

The weather looks great for fishing offshore tomorrow.   It is the last day of the monthly contest and we will be looking for big fish.   We are sure Ray will be down to protect his lead and collect his dough.   The weather looks good all week.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN



July 28, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
   The forecast was worse than the actual weather, but we hope it did not screw up the good Fluke fishing.

We had a great bite to start on Friday with our earliest limit of the year at 8:16 AM.   The good fishing did not continue all day, but we still picked when the current ran.

Two days are left in the monthly pool, which is now worth over $1,200.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

July 26, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   Today was the best Fluke fishing of the year.   We knew we were on to something good yesterday when we had fish in a new area and we followed our hunch to our best Fluke fishing of the year.   We had our first keeper before the other boats sailed and caught fish all day long.   There were plenty of limit catches and good short action to boot.   Scott Baron from Secaucus, NJ had a beauty for today's pool.   Marvin Tyler was back with Jim Custer from yesterday and both limited out today.

July 25, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   If you listened to the weatherman and stayed home, you missed a good day of fluke fishing.
















Jigging was the way to go and Archie Stewart is one of the best, and he had no problem getting the Fluke to bite.   He had a limit catch plus and plenty of shorts.   He would have had the daily pool but the big one got away.   We may get him tomorrow.   We fished areas we have not been in this season.   Marvin Tyler from Newark, NJ won today's pool.   Conditions look good for catching tomorrow.

PRIVATE CHARTER ON FRIDAY JULY 28 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP


July 23, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   We fished a new area today and we had great action as soon as we blew the whistle to fish.   Jose had the Dollar Fish for the first keeper Fluke of the day before some folks had even wet their lines.   Leaving first gets us on the fish first, but the way they were jumping on the bait, we wished we had left the dock even earlier.   John had a couple of keepers on the very first drift and a limit catch early on the second drift.   He ended the day with a ton of shorts and five keepers, keeping his legal limit.

Ray Slodowski from Toms River, NJ leads our two big pools and was leading today's pool until the last drift of the day.   Ray also had a limit catch.   Art Stieger also from Toms River, NJ had a load of shorts up until the last drift when he had two keepers including the pool fish.

July 10, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.
  We found Fluke yesterday and they were still there today.   The first fish of the day was a small Thresher Shark, which we released.   We were glad to see it since they love to eat Fluke and we knew we were in.   We had a couple of hours of good fishing with plenty of shorts and those dialed in were catching keepers.   Sea Bass, Porgies and Blowfish were in the mix.   Leaving early paid off today; the bite died when the southerly breeze came up.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

CHARTERED ON FRIDAY JULY 14 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

WE ARE CHARTERED ON FRIDAY JULY 14 – NO OPEN BOAT TRIP


July 6, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   We did not like the conditions for fishing where we were yesterday and went further down the beach.   We caught a few fish, but it was not good and we blame the conditions.   We just cannot get it all together.   The lack of fish in our bay forces us down the beach where you have fewer choices to find a good drift.   Big John won the daily pool.   You know the bottom water temperature is cold when you catch Ling with the Fluke.

NOT SAILING FRIDAY – RAIN IS FORECAST


July 5, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER New Yearly Pool Leader.
   After a tough day yesterday, we had much better action today with big Fluke.

Ray Slodowski from Toms River, NJ caught a nice 27.5-inch 8-pound 10-ounce Fluke to take the lead in the big Yearly Pool and the July Monthly Pool.

We had other 5-pound and 6-pound Fluke plus a good amount of big Sea Bass.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 30, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
   The wind never came until we were docking at the end of the day, and had we of known that, we would have been where the fish live instead of the desert.   Tried too hard for what we caught.   Charlie from Warren Township, NJ had the pool fish.

Rick won the Monthly Pool.   Congratulations!

We will be fishing for Fluke and Sea Bass tomorrow.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT


June 29, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   Being the first boat out was the ticket today since the Fluke were hungry when we arrived on the grounds and there were no other boats.   The folks on board said it was the best action they have seen this year, but it was mostly shorts.

Dave in Jimmy's spot had the first keeper to win the dollar pool and he caught his limit.   John Legge from Sparta, NJ won the daily pool.   It got windy around 11:30 AM and we retreated to our bay.

Friday is looking good and it is the last day of the Monthly Pool worth $1,580.   One more day Rick and you had better hope Bruce stays south.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – BAIT SUPPLIED – GALLEY OPEN


June 28, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   It was a nice day on the ocean again today with those folks on their game catching two or three keepers.

We also had better short action today, and bait and jigging both worked.   Conditions were tough all day and with wind against the tide, we never drifted much.   The wind switch forecast for tomorrow should help.

Bob Valentine from Long Valley, NJ had the pool with a 5 3/4 pound Fluke.

We had some jumbo Sea Bass again today and they become fair game on Saturday.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

Rick has the lead in the Monthly Pool with a 7-pound 15-ounce Fluke with three days to go.   On The ANGLER, we run honest pools and if he gets beat, it will be fair-and-square.   Jim Custer from Toms River, NJ was back again after winning yesterday's daily pool.   Jim had a bigger Fluke today, but it was only good for second place.   We had to fish local this afternoon and it was slow.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 26, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.
   We had nice weather today and many more Fluke.   As we said yesterday, we searched and we found much better fluking.

Jim Custer from Toms River, NJ got the daily pool and some folks had limits or better.   Bait was best today, but jigs worked too.   Tomorrow is looking good and we will return to where we fished today.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 25, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   Today was one of the ten best days of the year weather wise and good conditions for fluking.   We looked in lots of places and had a keeper or two everywhere with a few shorts but no herds.   Jim had the first keeper and the dollar pool, and tied for half of the daily pool.   Bob had a couple of keepers and the other half of the daily pool.

There are only five days remaining in the June monthly pool.   It is worth $1,400 and led by Rick's 7-pound 15-ounce Fluke.   Tomorrow, we will be fishing rocks and wrecks looking for big fish.   The Season Pool is over $1,400 with a 6-pound 11-ounce Fluke in the lead.

Fluke fishing is not good, but we are catching enough to keep everyone interested and at the rail.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 23, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Fluke report.
   We started in New York waters today and were pleased that we did not have to throw back any 18 to 19 inch Fluke.   The keepers were all well over 19-inches and the shorts under 18-inches.

Nabou Wake from Fort Lee, NJ took the daily pool with a 26-inch 6 1/2-pound Fluke.   The wind came up early and made for tough conditions.

The Saturday forecast is for rain early and the winds dying early.   Let's hope the weathermen are right.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN





June 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report
.   We did not like the conditions to start the day for beach fishing and the conditions were good for staying local.
It was the right move and we had Fluke right away.   Everywhere we went the swell was gone and the fishing was much better.   Both bait and jigging worked today.   Conditions look good for tomorrow with an early tide change.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 21, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   After tough fishing the last few days, we finally got a chance to look down the beach.   The swell and current made for tough conditions to start, but the wind and drift picked up and we started to see more Fluke, both keepers and shorts.

Things were going as planed and bam, we lost the steering and had to call it a day, and head in to the dock.   We worked late on the boat and solved the problem, so we will be back at it tomorrow.

Ray from Toms River, NJ won the daily pool.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 20, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   Today's weather was better than the catching.   There was more wind than forecast and a faster drift, but conditions were good enough that we should have seen more keepers.   Jim Custer from Toms River, NJ caught today's pool fish on bait.   Tomorrow's forecast is for much lighter winds and west is best.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 18, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   The weather forecast kept many regulars home, but it was a beautiful day.   We had a steady pick all day on quality Fluke. 

Bill Heffner from Orange County, NY took the Father's Day pool with a Fluke over 6 pounds.  There were not a lot of keeper Fluke, but most were over 5 pounds.   A good stretch of weather is coming up and we will be sailing Open Boat every day at 7:00 AM first boat out.

June 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.
   We went for a ride to start the day in search of the missing herds and only found a few Sea Bass and Ling.
We had tough conditions all day with a big swell from yesterday's blow.   We found some quality fish at the end of the day with a 7-pound Fluke taking the pool.   Some fold with a couple of keeper fish, but it was not good.   However, it was much better than yesterday.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

MONDAY'S WEATHER IS NOT LOOKING GOOD


June 15, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Fluke report.
   We had our best weekday gang of the year come down today.
We found some nice keepers and had a good drift, but the wind came up and it got hard to hold bottom.   Joe was fishing with chartreuse Gulp and a Killie had our first limit catch.

Rickey Gilchrist has only been on the boat twice, but he caught the pool each time and leads the Monthly Pool with a 7-pound 15-ounce Fluke.   No doubt, he has his mojo working.

There is the chance of a few showers on Friday, but the day will not be a washout and we expect to catch Fluke.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN



June 14, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   We had a good drift all day and were able to check out areas we have not fished this year.   We made a few quick stops before finding some quality Fluke.   Jimmy had the hot hand and had a limit by 8:40 AM.   He managed six keepers for the day.   Big Gulp tipped with bait was the ticket today and there were more keepers than shorts.   Dennis DePalma from Montvale, NJ was today's pool winner.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 13, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Fluke report.
   After doing a lot of searching the last few days, we thought today would be easy.   We found some real nice Fluke on Monday and conditions were perfect to catch 'em up today.   However, they moved overnight and were gone.   Once again, search mode and it took a bit, but we found some nice fish again today with most over 23-inches and up to Marvin Tyler's 27-inch pool fish.   Marvin also had a limit catch

Mike had a limit plus and second place in the pool two weeks in a row.   Tom the Hammer had the dollar pool today.   It was a nice day on the water with a great bunch of anglers who all worked hard.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 12, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.
   We stayed close to home and found some nice Fluke with about a 50/50 keeper ratio.   Ray had our first double-header keepers this year.   The stern seemed better today although Jimmy had his limit plus a Sea Bass on the pulpit.   Charlie Palecek from Middle Smithville, PA had his limit and a 6-pound 5-ounce Fluke for the daily pool.

Yearly and monthly pools are worth well over a grand.   It was a beautiful day on the water today and tomorrow is looking very nice again.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 11, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.
   It was a nice summer day and all the boats had good gangs.   We took a ride first thing this morning and checked out some New York spots.   It took a few drops to settle the $ first keeper pool as the fish had to be over 19 inches and we were catching some Jersey keepers.    We found a good load of short Fluke, but there were not enough keepers.

We then went back to New Jersey and had a good shot of keepers on the first of the ebb tide.   Last year on this date, we had over 200 keepers and we searched that area, but only found a few fish.   The water is warming and we think we will find them this week.

Jimmy from Port Monmouth, NJ took a big pool with a 6-pound Fluke.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

CHARTERED SATURDAY


June 7, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Fluke report.
   Same story, different day…   we fished many drops and caught a few keepers with some limits and skunks.   Today, a young lad, Cameron from PA with his Granddad took the pool with a nice 6-pound Fluke and had his limit.   They were all on single spearing baits.   This morning, we told Lou that he would probably win the pool.   Sometimes you have to think out of the box.    Bait is working best and the water has cooled off a few degrees.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

CHARTERED SATURDAY


June 5, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Fluke report.
   The weatherman killed it today with only a few people down at the dock and more boats tied to the dock than sailing.   We fished all day without rain.

Fishing was not easy and we had to work hard again to put some keepers in the boat.   There were a few folks with the limit, some with none, and most with a couple or one.   Skip Reese from Bordentown, NJ took today's pool.

NOT SAILING TUESDAY – Rain and poor drifting conditions in the forecast

NEXT TRIP WEDNESDAY

CHARTERED SATURDAY AM AND PM


June 4, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Fluke report.

Roger Lee from Parlin, NJ jigged all day and had the pool fish, but bait worked best.   We often have a dollar pool for the first keeper and Jose's Son Antonio had his first dollar pool today.   He has a good teacher.

We will be sailing on Monday since the winds look good and it is showers not an all-day rain.

NO GALLEY UNTIL WEDNESDAY


June 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Fluke report.
   We were expecting a nice day, but the weather turned as we made our way across the bay.   The strong west wind and rain forced us down the beach.   We had good anglers on board who hung in there.   By the end of the day, the sun came out, the wind slowed and we put some nice Fluke in the boat.   Roy Smith from Hatboro, PA won today's pool.

This year, we are running a Monthly Pool in addition to our famous 10-pound Yearly Pool.   The monthly is already over a grand and the yearly is close behind.

Sunday is looking nice and there is some rain in the forecast for Monday, but the winds look good and we will be sailing.

SAILING BY 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 2, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Report.
   Overall, Fluke fishing was much slower today for most folks.   Jim Custer on the other hand, started the day with a keeper on each of his first two casts, but it took a while for his first limit catch of the year.   Jerry Saylor from Lititz, PA had a nice one for the pool.   We found some Fluke in new areas, but they did not want to bite.   We had water as warm as 67 degrees, the warmest so far this year.   Bait was best again today .   Our Monthly Pool is worth $820 and in the lead is a 7-pound 15-ounce Fluke.   Conditions look good for tomorrow with west winds and an outgoing tide.

SAILING BY 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


June 1, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER bigger Fluke.
   It was a foggy, nasty start to the day, but we had Fluke right away.
Mike got our first keeper in seconds and it weighed 7-pounds 12-ounces.    We had a much better morning keeper ratio since a new body of Fluke moved in overnight.

We have a new leader in the Monthly Pool.   Rick Gilchrist from East Windsor, NJ had a beautiful 27 1/2-inch Fluke that tipped the scale at 7-pounds 15-ounces and just beating Mike's fish.   And Janice had a couple of keepers to 23-inches.

It is feeling more like summer.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN



May 31, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report.
   We had good life to start the day, but the Fluke had shrunk with everything missing the mark.   We were catching some nice 4-pound Blues and a nice Weakfish, but only an odd keeper.   By the end of the day, we did find an area of much nicer keepers and put some good ones in the box.   Joe Casale from Nutley, NJ caught his personal best, won the daily pool and missed tying the big pools by one ounce.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


May 30, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER good Fluking continues.
   Justin Somers from Keyport, NJ is our new leader in all pools.   Everyday there is a new leader.   The weather is not bad, but not nice.   At least the fishing was good.   Remember we leave early so YOU can catch more fish.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


May 29, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Report.
   We had plenty of Fluke action this weekend and Sunday was the best.   Fewer boats on Sunday were a plus.

Each time we found a new batch of Fluke, we only got one drift and then surrounded with boats that killed the action.   We had drifts with 6 to 10 keepers only to have a fleet kill the bite.   We will be glad to see Tuesday.

Jose Reyes was back again today to bag another limit plus, but he lost the lead in our Big Pool to Mike Kamen from Rutherford, NJ.   Mike is the new leader in our monthly pool and he won the daily pool too.  He had a last year limit of five keepers only keeping three.   Jose had 4 keepers and 15 shorts and he gave all of his fish away since he caught enough on Saturday.

When you come down in the morning, ask Lou or Joe what the hot colors and combo's were.   It makes a big difference in the size and number of keepers you catch.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


May 28, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Update.

We had good Fluke fishing today, but THE ANGLER IS NOT SAILING MEMORIAL DAY.

   We carry some of the best Fluke anglers around and they were happy to be back on the ANGLER Fluke fishing again.   We looked around different areas and found some action with a good amount of shorts with keepers mixed in.   On our best drift of the day, we had nine keepers.
















Jose Reyes took the daily pool and he is the leader in our new monthly contest.   We also had a few Striped Bass today, which is better by accident, than most Bass boats were doing on purpose.   George managed to land one of the Stripers on a Fluke rig.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


May 26, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER good fishing today.
   We ran a special trip today sailing at 6 AM looking for Sea Bass.   We told everyone we were going to make a quick stop for Fluke on the way since we did not know what the ocean would look like after yesterday's easterly blow.   Well, we made a 12-minute drift and had 15 shorts and 5 keepers and then it was time to go bottom fishing.   We picked away on the first four areas and landed on a load of fish to end the day.   Bites were right away with double and triple header Sea Bass around the boat.   It was mostly shorts, but there were plenty of offshore jumbos.

Dave Brink from Hazlet, NJ took the pool with a nice cod.   In his catch were Sea Bass, Ling, Cod, Fluke and Bluefish.   You just don't know what is going to bite next.
















WE ARE SAILING 3/4-DAY FLUKE NOW and be down by 6:30 AM on the weekends and 7:00 AM on weekdays.   We sail early so you can catch more fish.

GALLEY OPEN

M
ay 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Weekend Report and Update.
















We were Fluke fishing on our Saturday charter and bottom fishing on Sunday.   Saturday was our annual FISH WITH ME CHARTER where we made five short catch-and-release Fluke trips taking kids (for the most part) on their first fishing trip.   The kids had a ball and caught a good amount of Fluke.   Adell was our star catching seven fluke in 45 minutes up to 20-inches and yes, she would have had a limit catch.   Keep in mind that everything caught was on rental rods with Spearing for bait.

On Sunday, we started out good with the bow doing best on Ling, Tog and Sea Bass.   Chet took another pool and Vic was high hook with 10.   We threw back some big Sea Bass for this coming Friday.

We are sailing early Thursday and Friday at 6:00 AM since we want to get a jump on the action.   The trips will be 3/4-day and returning around 2:00 PM.   The fares are $65 for adults, $60 for seniors and $35 for children.   Fluke on Thursday and Sea Bass on Friday, and our galley will be open.

NO GALLEY TUESDAY

   Today we had more jumbo Ling then we have been seeing.   Jack Deaker had the pool with a 4-pounder.   Too many nice Sea Bass and a load of Tog are going back over the rail.   As we said before, it would be a great day without the closed seasons.

May 18, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Ling Report.
   Once again, we had good fishing for Tog and Sea Bass with some Ling mixed in.   In the good old days before seasons and limits, we would have been happy with today's catch, but when you have to throw back 80% of your catch, it hurts.   Chet from Elizabeth, NJ took the pool with a Ling weighing over 4 pounds.   We will be bottom fishing on Friday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

THE ANGLER IS CHARTERED ON SATURDAY MAY 20 – NO MORNING OPEN BOAT TRIP

May 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Ling Report.
   We managed a few more Ling today, but it was about the same story.   You catch a few Ling on each drop and if you were in the right position, you do okay.   Today, the back did best, but the bow has usually been the best.   If we could keep Tog and Sea Bass, we would have many happy fares.   Dalton Carhart from Atlantic Highlands, NJ won the pool.   The next two days look good and we will sail at 7:00 AM

THE ANGLER IS CHARTERED ON SATURDAY MAY 20 – NO MORNING OPEN BOAT TRIP


May 16, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Ling Report.
   Most folks averaged 6 to 10 Ling apiece plus many Sea Bass and Tog going back.   Mike Terafanko from Middletown, NJ was today's pool winner.   We had expected better fishing with a flat ocean, but we think it will take another day or two.   We also saw many doggies, which will go away shortly.   Conditions look good all week.   There are nicer Sea Bass around, but we do not know with Fluke opening next Thursday if we will Fluke fish or Sea Bass fish on May 26.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


May 11, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Ling Report.
   The fishing was better again today with nice Ling and a couple of Cod to 15 pounds.

There was plenty of action with Sea Bass and Tog plus some eels and dogs.

We are not sailing again until Tuesday.   Saturday's blow will shut down the bite, but strong northwest winds on Sunday and Monday will settle the bottom.

NEXT TRIP – 7:00 AM TUESDAY MAY 16

THE ANGLER IS CHARTERED ON SATURDAY MAY 20 – NO MORNING OPEN BOAT TRIP



May 10, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Ling Report.
   We had much better Ling fishing today with Ling John taking the pool on our final drop.   Many folks had 8 to 12 Ling and plenty of Tog and Sea Bass.

Thursday looks good, but the ANGLER is not sailing Friday, Saturday and Sunday because of the weather.   The middle of next week will be our best shot at good fishing.


May 9, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Ling Report.   It was a beautiful day on the ocean and we got some big Ling.   Conditions were great and we ventured offshore in search of the mother lode.   Well, it was about the same as inshore except for more Congo eels.   We are catching some Tog and Sea Bass, which go back along with Fluke.

Jack Decker from North Haledon, NJ was today's pool winner with some jumbo Ling.

It looks like the next two days will be good fishing days with Friday a possible day.  As of now Saturday, Sunday and Monday do not look nice.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT

GALLEY OPEN


May 4, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Ling Report.
   Fishing was better today with a nicer ocean.   The Ling are moving inshore following the bait.   We also had our first Whiting and Founder.   Tog fishing was good at times (too bad it is closed.)   There were some jumbo Ling in the mix like Vu's pool fish.   Folks averaged 6 to 12 Ling per person today.

NOT SAILING FRIDAY OR SATURDAY – Fishing will not be good on both days because of the weather.

Early next week is looking good if you want some tasty Ling.


May 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Windy Wednesday Ling Report.

We did okay today considering the wind and a leftover swell from yesterday's blow.

A Cod took the pool and we had some nice Tog and Sea Bass that went back over the rail.

The weather forecast looks no good for Friday and Saturday.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT

NO GALLEY TOMORROW (THURSDAY)




April 30, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Report.
We finished the Tog season with some nice fish.   We only picked on the bigger fish in shallow water, but had good short action deeper.

We had Striped Bass, Fluke, Sea Bass, Tog and Ling come over the rails today.  Chris Ryback from Pittstown, NJ had todays pool with a big tog.

We made one drop to look for Ling for our next trip and saw more than in previous days.   With Tog closed, we will now fish for Ling.   Wednesday will be our next trip.

The weather forecast for this week does not look good other than for Wednesday and maybe Thursday.   Come on Fluke!


April 29, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Report.   The early morning heavy rains scared lots of people who missed a nice day of fishing.   The bow produced the best today, which often happens when we fish smaller wrecks up north.

The action was best at the end of the day, but the keeper ratio was much better early in the day.   Some folks had three, four, and five keeper Blackfish.

Sunday is looking good with an east wind and flood tide, so anchoring should be good.

WE WILL BE LING FISHING AFTER SUNDAY and as of now, the weather looks good for Wednesday and Thursday.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


April 28, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday Report.
   There was still a swell today, but a nice ocean.   We had plenty of shorts, but once again, there were more keepers today when the current ran strong.   If you are coming tomorrow (Saturday), bring your heavy gear since we will be fishing in a lot of current.   Paul Schuckalo from Kinnelon, NJ took today's pool on the last drop.   We have clams and crabs on board.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT


April 27, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday Report.
   Anchoring was tough this morning, but when we got the outgoing tide and were able to sit still, the fishing was good.   Clams were best with some Tog caught on crabs and on jigs.   Howard Frankel from Mahwah, NJ took the pool with a 7-pound Tog.   Friday looks good.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN


April 23, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Report.
   We had a good day with the Tog today and the weather was very nice.   If you looked at the weather forecast on Friday, you would say that Saturday looked best.   Well it rained Saturday and today was super nice.

Joe was on a busman's holiday and had some nice Tog for his birthday.   It wasn't Bunt's birthday, but he also did well.   Chet Turko from Elizabeth, NJ won the pool and got a few nice keepers.   Bucktail Bob had a slow morning, but the Tog were jumping on his jig during the last hour.

NOAA's forecast is for east winds tomorrow with gusts to 30 knots late morning and afternoon.   With that and the crummy forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, our next trip will be Thursday 4/27.

NEXT TRIP THURSDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT


April 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Report.
   We went back to where we had good fishing Tuesday, but it was only a pick.  Went north and ended the day with plenty of action.

Some folks did okay like Harold Sang from Long Island who had a limit Blackfish catch and won the pool.   There were a few big Ling in the mix.   Clams were best, but one angler had a good bite on green crabs on our last drop.

We will be spending our day tomorrow closer to home where we should have more Ling in the mix.   The weather is looking poor for Monday through Wednesday, which is not good since there are only 8 days left for Tog.

7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT AND GALLEY OPEN


April 18, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Report.
Beautiful weather, a flat ocean and hungry togs... we had it all today with limits plus.

A young woman named Marissa Lollo from Stewartsville, NJ had never been fishing on a boat until today.   Well, she made her Dad proud catching fish all day and the pool fish.   It was all clams again today.

Our next trip will be Saturday 4/22.   We do not like the southeast wind forecast for tomorrow or the rain after that.

NEXT TRIP SATURDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT


April 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Report.
   We tried to fish where we had a mix of Ling and Tog Saturday, but we could not keep on the wreck.   After the southerly wind yesterday, there was a good-sized swell running up into the breeze and current, and the anchor lines went slack.   We moved to where we had much better laying conditions.   The Blackfish bite was good, but there were too many 14-inch fish.   Clams worked the best today.
















Evan Vivanco from Harrison, NJ took the pool with his first ever Blackfish.   He also had a Cod.

We are sailing Tuesday at 7:00 AM, but we do not think we will try Wednesday with the forecast for southeast winds or Thursday and Friday with the rain.

NEXT TRIP TUESDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT

GALLEY OPEN


April 16, 2017 – Happy Easter!
  ANGLER Saturday report... It was nice to sail again with a good bunch of ANGLER regulars.   The weather was very nice to start the day, but a southerly wind came up and it got cold.   The fishing was best at the end of the day with plenty of short action along with a few keeper Tog and some nice big Ling mixed in.   Richard Tasker from Warren Township, NJ had the pool beating out some jumbo ling.   Clams were best.

All the reports we had were for no Ling, so we were happy to see some come over the rails and it should get better each day.   There were plenty of Bergalls, which help the Ling and Tog bite.

Monday looks like the best weather day of the upcoming week and Tuesday is also okay, but we have doubts about the three days after that.

NEXT TRIP MONDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT

GALLEY OPEN


March 15, 2017
– The ANGLER is fishing every day except Easter Sunday.   3/4-day trips sailing at 7:00 AM.
We have clam and crab baits on board, and our galley is open.   The fare is $65 and the weather looks good all week.

7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN

NOT SAILING EASTER SUNDAY 4/16


March 8, 2017 – The ANGLER will start its 2017 season next SATURDAY APRIL 15.   Our trips are 3/4-day bottom fishing for TOG, COD and LING from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM.   The fares are the same as last year.

We are not sailing Easter Sunday 4/16.

Spring bottom fishing is very dependent on weather with westerly winds being the best, and easterly and southerly winds will often shut the fishing down for a few days.    You can call us at (732) 872-0744 for any up-to-the-minute changes.

NEXT TRIP – 7:00 AM SATURDAY 4/15

NOT SAILING EASTER SUNDAY 4/16


January 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER 1/21 Final Winter Trip.
   We had nice weather and started the day where we caught Tog on Monday.   There were plenty of eels, but the Tog would not bite.   We fished some deeper wrecks and the Conger eel bite was hot with just a few Ling mixed in.   We then moved inshore where we found a few Tog, but only caught shorts.   Whale watching was good; there was a large Finback only 15-feet from the boat.   Jim Lewik i from Cheesequake, NJ managed three Ling and won the pool.

We were going to sail next weekend, but we do not see fishing improving given the big storm expected on Monday and Tuesday and are packing it in for the rest of the winter.

THANKS TO ALL – SEE YOU IN THE SPRING


January 18, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.
   No one has sailed out of Atlantic Highlands since Monday.

January 16, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER MLK day Tog.   We had much better fishing today after a couple of tough days.   The weather was perfect and we did much better.   White-legger crabs seemed best, but green crabs and clams worked too.

David Taubenslag from South Brunswick, NJ had three keepers and won his second pool in a row with a nice 9.5-pound white chin Tog.   We also got a few ling in 90 feet of water.

We are not sailing the next few days and we will post an update when we are sailing


January 14, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Report.
   It was nice getting out again to a flat ocean.   We headed offshore to deeper water with great hopes.   Well, it was only a pick on the Tog with plenty of eels and only a single Ling.   We didn't catch any Cod or Mackerels.   Timmy won the pool and the best fishing was on green crabs.   We have white-legger and green crab baits.   We have a few new areas to try during the next two days.

NEXT TRIP – 7:30 AM SUNDAY 1/15

WE ARE SAILING MLK MONDAY 1/16


January 13, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.

The weather is finally turning fishable after lots of southerly winds.   We will be back sailing this weekend and the rest of January.

We expect to be fishing offshore where we may have some Ling and Cod mixed in with bigger Tog.

Today's northwest wind should take care of the big swell from this week's southerly blow.

SAILING 7:30 AM – NO GALLEY


January 6, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.

We are not sailing this weekend.
   The weather forecast calls for a gale watch, cold temperatures and snow.   We will wait for better weather.


January 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER updates and photos.    Happy New Year to all!   We just posted the trip pictures from New Year's Eve trip (see our Photo Gallery).

NEXT TRIP – 7:30 AM WEDNESDAY 1/04


December 31, 2016
As we wrap up 2016, we just wanted to take this time to give you our sincere thanks for fishing aboard the ANGLER.   We look forward to a new year of fishing and to seeing you in 2017.   Thank you once again for fishing with us.

BEST WISHES FOR A HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Party Boat ANGLER Saturday report.
   We had a good day of fishing today with a nice mix of fish.   The ocean was good this morning, but it got nasty in the afternoon when the south wind got cranking.   Artie had four keeper Blackfish up to 7-pounds plus the pool fish.  We do not like the weather forecast for the next few days and will not sail again until the end of next week.

Captain George and the Crew of the ANGLER


December 28, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Tog report.    On the way out today, we saw a ton of bunker in our bay and when we got to the one buoy, we had a whale jump completely out of the water.  It was only 100 feet off our bow and jumped twice.   With a northwest wind and the beginning of the ebb tide, conditions were good to stop short.   The Tog were hungry and eating both green and white crabs.   Some folks had two or three keepers with others catching 15 shorts.   It was our best fishing of the day.   We only picked at them when we went south and joined the fleet.   Hungsoo Moon from Jersey City, NJ had the pool with a 6-pound Tog.

Thursday will not be nice with rain and southerly winds to 30 knots.   Friday is also no good with wind gusts to 40.

The next ANGLER Tog trip is SATURDAY 12/31


December 21, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Tog report and update.
   We fished inshore and offshore today finding a big spread of fish.

There was a nice Cod caught in shallow water with a load of shorts and some nice keeper Blackfish.

Offshore, we had bigger Blackfish plus our first Ling.   We saw whales and plenty of herring.

Mike the Plumber was high hook with seven keepers and Joe won the pool.

NEXT TRIP IS FRIDAY 12/23

NOT SAILING THURSDAY 12/22, SATURDAY 12/24 OR SUNDAY 12/25

NEW START TIME IS 7:30 AM – NY TOG IS CLOSED.   WE DO NOT NEED TO SAIL EARLY

THE ANGLER IS SAILING EVERY DAY CHRISTMAS WEEK (WEATHER PERMITTING)


December 14, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report.
   The day started with mostly shorts, but ended with good action and some big fish.  Paulie from Kinnelon, NJ took the pool with an 8-pound Tog.   There was more wind than forecast and a strong full moon tide made for heavy weights.

We saw Bass and Blues under a swarm of Gannets on the way out and that shows the water is still warm, but this is about to change.

We will not be sailing for a while with the windy weather forecast.


December 11, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday report.
   It was cold Sunday, but we had some good Tog fishing.   There were limit catches with a ton of shorts mixed in.

Denise Ryu from Palisades Park, NJ had four big Blackfish up to a 7-pound 11-ounce pool fish on white and green crab combo baits.   Anchoring got tough after noon, but we still caught fish.

We cannot believe there are no Ling yet, but we do hear of a few Cod and Mackerel starting to show.

Wednesday 12/14 looks like the only weekday with decent weather.   We will sail at 7:00 AM and the galley will be open.


December 7, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report.
   Everything looked good as we made it to the point this morning.   The rain stopped and the wind was down to about 10 knots out of the NNE.   We still had some ebb tide left, but we figured we would have the flood tide soon and we could start where we ended the day Sunday with good fishing.   However, we had to change plans as we passed the 11 Buoy.   A big swell from hell made it nasty.   We never had the wind last night, but it must have been nasty offshore.   The swell ruined anchoring and shut down the bite.   There were a few keepers on each stop, but no good overall.  Concrete Tom won the pool and Archie was second.   We don't like tomorrow's forecast of NW winds with a flood tide, but it cannot be any worse than today.

With wind and low temperatures forecast for Friday & Saturday, we will wait until Sunday to sail again.


December 4, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday report and update.
   This is normally a slow week with the opening of buck season, and the weather is not great.   It felt like winter for most of the morning with a stiff northwest breeze and cold, but by the end of the day, it was flat and nice.   The first two drops had action around the boat, but just a pick on keepers.   When the tide changed, we moved north and had good fishing.   Dave Woodson from Dover, NJ won the pool with a Tog over 7-pounds that just beat a couple of other nice fish.   Green crabs worked best, but there was some action on the whites.

The weather conditions look good for Wednesday with light east winds and a flood tide.  This is the ONLY day we will sail before next weekend.

7:00 AM WEDNESDAY 12/07


December 2, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Update.
   We are NOT sailing Saturday because of gale warnings in the weather forecast, but Sunday's weather looks good.


Just as a reminder, the ANGLER is an open party fishing boat and you don't need to make reservations.   This applies to all of our regularly scheduled fishing trips.   Like other party boats, we work on a first come, first serve basis, so all you need to do is arrive at the boat anywhere from one to one-half hour before sailing time.
