Hey gang, tomorrow, Sunday will be the last blackfish trip until mid-April when we start up again.
Fri., Jan. 24th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had some good people on the boat today..we went straight out to deeper water where we've been catching blackfish, conditions were different today and they didn't bite,we left the area and went inshore, no good there either so we steamed back offshore to the deep..I guess it was because of 46 water temperature going down to 41 degrees with the new moon..We had just a couple of keeper blackfish with some shorts in the mix and maybe 15 ling with plenty of conger eels, Jim won the pool with a nice tog,but all in all it was a slow day. Anyway, our next trip will be Tuesday January 28th hopefully the water temperature will be better Thanks.
Thurs., Jan. 23rd - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we were out again with some good guys on the boat. Conditions were good. It was a nice flat beautiful ocean. We picked away at blackfish most of the day. High hook was 3 keepers, some with 2 keepers, some with just 1 and a few with just shorts. Tomorrow, Friday is going to be the day to go fishing because Saturday and Sunday look like a bust with the weather. We will see you in the morning 7:30am to 2:30pm.
Wed., Jan. 22nd - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, beautiful day out on the ocean. We made 4 drops in the deep and saw blackfish on all. Not a bad day. We had around 20 keeper tog, maybe 17 ling plus a keeper cod. We also had plenty of short blackfish in the mix. The weather looks great for Thursday and Friday. They are the 2 days to come down and fish. We will see you guys in the morning.,
Fri., Jan. 17th - Update
Hey gang, with the cold temperatures and the strong wind, our next trip will be Wed., Jan. 22nd. Don't forget we have heated handrails and heated cabin for your comfort. Any time we say we are lighting up - we will be sailing. Doens't matter if we have one or 25 we're going fishing. For any further information about conditions, you can text me on my cell at 732-245-6514.
Wed., Jan. 15th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, it was a beautiful day on the ocean, good anchoring conditions but the fish weren't biting that good today, just a slow pick on keepers with the shorts in the mix. Anyway, we have some bad weather coming for the next 4 or 5 days. Will keep you updated on when we will be sailing again. Thanks.
Tues., Jan. 14th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had 10 good guys that showed up to go blackfishing today. We made 4 drops and found fish pretty good on one of the drops. Two or three of the guys had 2 keeper togs, some with just 1 and plenty of 14" fish released today. The weather looks good for tomorrow, Wednesday. We will definitely be sailing. But after that, the weather's not going to be good for a couple of days. Will update. Don't forget - we have heated cabin and heated hand rails for your comfort. Will see you in the morning. For any further information you can text me on my cell at 732-245-6514. Thanks.
Sat., Jan. 11th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had some good people on the boat and fished offshore in the deep water. The blackfish bit pretty good but just not a lot of keepers today, only a handful. Strong south wind against tide but it was a fishable day. Chris in the stern, I believe was high hook with 16, but only one keeper. When we were pulling our anchors to come home, it really started getting wild out there. We did a little surfing on the way home - Hawaii 5-0 style. Our next two trips will be Tuesday and Wednesday for sure. We will definitely be sailing, George, Louie and some of the Angler guys will be coming out with us. The ocean will be settled down nicely and we should have good conditions. Also, now that we are the only boat fishing out of Atlantic Highlands, we have a new policy, it doesn't matter if we have one or 25 - if we are lit up we will sail. For further information about conditions, you can text me on my cell or call - 732-245-6514.
Fri., Jan. 10th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we fished inshore and then worked our way offshore in the deeper water. There was a swell on the ocean all day but there was no wind. Anyway, it was just a slow pick on keepers like 7 or 8 plus shorts in mix and some ling. It wasn't a great day fishing like Tuesday. We will definitely be sailing tomorrow Saturday, we have guys coming down so we'll see you in the morning 7:30am to 2:30 pm. Thanks
Tues., Jan. 7th - Good Blackfishing
Hey gang, pretty good bite with bigger blackfish today and a flat ocean. Capt. George came out with Donny again and he had his limit of 4. Everyone had at least 2 keepers and the total was 35 keepers togs on the boat today with plenty of shorts in the mix. Our next trip will be Friday January 10th. Remember we have heated cabin and handrails for your comfort.
Sat., Jan. 4th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had pea soup fog all day. Not good anchoring conditions, but we picked away at keepers and short blackfish with a small crowd of customers. Our next trip will be Tuesday, January 7th. We have white leggers and green crabs for bait. We'll see you Tuesday morning. Heated handrails and heated cabin for your comfort.
Thurs., Jan. 2nd - Blackfish Report
Hey gang. We made 4 drops today from 95' to 55' only had 15 keeper blackfish today with the short action. I definitely think Monday's blow affected the way the fish were biting. Usually takes a good 4 days for everything to straighten out plus I didn't like the color of the water. Captain George came out with us again with a few of his guys and Donnie won the pool today. Our next trip will be Saturday, January 4th. Should be better by then. See you guys Saturday morning. PS not fishing Sunday with the high winds.
Wed., Jan. 1st - Update
Hey gang, not too many people showed up at the Harbor today, maybe because of the 35mph West winds today. Anyway we only had 3 customers and they are coming back tomorrow. The other boat sailed with only a handful of people. The weather looks very good for tomorrow. The forecast is for rain on Friday but Saturday looks good. Sunday they have gale force winds 40mph so we're not sailing. Will update. See you at the dock tomorrow. Happy New Year to all.
Sun., Dec. 29th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had blackfish biting all day we had good conditions for anchoring we made 3 drops and found some keepers. Chris had 4 nice ones and Mike had 3 and won the pool. Several others with 2 and 3 keepers and plenty of shorts in the mix. Anyway we will not be fishing tomorrow Monday and I will keep you guys updated for the rest of the week. Thanks. P.S. next trip New Year's Day Wed.
Fri., Dec. 27th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang, we had some good guys on the boat and I really wanted to catch the fish today. Unfortunately, we had a heave on the ocean from a southerly blow from the night before that affected the fishing. We had fish coming first thing in the morning but after about an hour of fishing we kept getting pushed up on both our anchors. We had to leave the deep and move in the 70' feet area and started picking fish. Plenty of 13 inch and 14 inch blackfish with some keepers. But conditions were not good there either. All and all a very tough day fishing. We had 16 keeper blackfish on the boat today with short action and some ling but Jimmy Lewicki, one of Capt George's guys, caught a nice 10lber, our biggest of the season so far and won today's pool. Captain Jack will have better conditions for tomorrow's trip. Thanks.
Thurs., Dec. 26th - Blackfish Report
Hey gang we were out today with some good guys on the boat we made 4 drops from 65 to 90' feet saw blackfish on all 4 drops. We picked away today at keepers and shorts blackfish and boated another codfish. Have been seeing a few more of them the last week. We stayed out a little late as we got into a decent afternoon bite today and docked at 330pm. Anyway Captain George from the Angler will be on board tomorrow Friday and Captain Jack will be at the helm Saturday. I will be back on the boat for Sunday's trip. We plan to fish the entire month of January, the limit on the blackfish is basically the same 4 per customer plus like I said there's some codfish showing up and it's been a very mild Winter so far. I'll see you guys in the morning. Thanks.
Wed., Dec. 25th - Blackfish Report
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY CUSTOMERS! We did not have a great fishing day like we had yesterday. We made 2 drops and it was a slow pick on keeper blackfish with 19 and we had one nice keeper codfish caught by Sarah winning the pool. Maybe because it was just too nice of a day out no wind and not much current. Anyway conditions look better for tomorrow. Remember we have heated hand rails and cabin for your comfort. So see you in the morning 7:30am to 2:30pm. Thanks
Tues., Dec. 24th - Very Good Day - Bigger Blackfish and Limits Again
Hey gang, not many boats out today. We took a ride out to the deeper water again and had very good fishing. Kenny, the assassin, was catching them all day in the starboard bow and got his limit fast today. Jose nailed 4 nice tog and we had several other limits. It was a really nice day on the ocean again. See you guys in the morning. Sailing Christmas 7:30am to 1:30 p.m. We have guys coming down, so we will be sailing for sure. Heated hand rails and cabin for your comfort. See you at the dock.
Mon., Dec. 23rd - Bigger Blackfish
Hey gang, we fished in a little deeper water today on one of ours and Captain George's favorite drops. It started out slow but then we started to get them going with some bigger togs coming over the rail. The bow was the place to fish today. Couple guys had their limits up there and Big Al fishing the starboard bow had his limit and won today's pool with a nice big tog. Always a pleasure to have Captain George and his guys aboard. We docked around 3 o'clock today. It was a fine day on the ocean again. Looking forward to getting back out there tomorrow. And, we will be fishing Christmas Day 7:30am to 1:30pm and it looks good for the rest of the week. So we hope to see you at the dock.

The action was steady until the southerly wind picked up and then we had to bounce around but still managed to pick away at some nice fish.

Sat., Sept. 14th, Fluke Report
Hey gang. We had a decent crowd of customers. We did not see any big fluke like our last trip. Knew it was going to be a slow day with the 30mph east wind yesterday. The ocean was little nasty but we did release about 30 fluke some real close to 17 and half inches. Had to release some real big Sea Bass which really hurt as we could have used them today. We had to leave the grounds around 12:00 noon with the sea starting to get rough and retreated back to the bay which had no life at all. Was good to see that the fluke was not knocked out by yesterday’s East wind so it should be alright for tomorrow and Monday. Only seven more fluke trips to go before the season ends. Capt Jack will see you in the morning 7:30am to 2:30pm. Thanks.
Wed., Sept. 11th, Jumbo Fluke Report
Hey gang. We got into some big fluke today in the deep water. Our best drift was the 1st one of the day with 6 nice keepers along with plenty of shorts in the mix. Big Joe, Wayne and Artie had 3 big ones in their cooler fishing the bow today. Captain George of the Angler caught two big fluke and Prowler 5 regular Kurt had his limit with 3 keepers. We got into double digits on keepers for the day. It kind of died off a little in the afternoon but all in all not a bad fluke day. We fished in 80' feet of water. We will see what tomorrow brings, Thursday is 5 to 10 northeast with showers in the forecast so we will be sailing. Friday's a no go with the 30 East winds, but Saturday and Sunday look okay for fishing.
Sun., Sept. 8th, Fishing Report
Hey gang. We were not sure what to expect today due to the swell and strong winds left over from Dorian. It was a nice surprise when we rounded the hook and were greeted with a nice calm ocean. We started off fishing down the beach but the action was pretty much non-existent so we took a ride offshore to find some fish. Our first drift Prowler regular Gary Mann from Clifton N.J. landed a beautiful 8.9 lb flattie which took the pool. There was a fair amount of short action throughout the day and some quality keepers too. It should pick back up after a few more changes.
Tues., Sept. 3rd, Offshore Fluke Report
Hey gang, we had 17 customers and fished the port side so we had less tangles. Fished in the deep today. Lots of fluke, just hard to get the keepers. Over 100 fish went back with some beautiful sea bass that had a go back also. It was a beautiful day out on the ocean today, nice and calm. We will be fishing tomorrow, Wednesday. After that it looks like we might have a couple days off. See you in the morning 730am. Thanks.
Sat., August 31, 2019, Fluke Report
Hey gang, well it was another beautiful day out on the ocean again. We didn't have the great fishing that we had on Friday's trip with the big fish. We had to release at least over 200 fluke that were 16 to 17" we did manage to land some nice big sea bass with multiple limits plus we picked away at keeper fluke. We didn't see any of the big fish like we caught on Friday's trip. With that being said.... they say you should have been here yesterday... that was the case if you wanted to catch big fluke. Anyway, Jack has the boat out today, Sunday. I'm sure he'll give a report later. Weather looks great for Monday Tuesday and Wednesday. We will see you at the dock so come on down. There's not too many fluke days left. Remember we always have a place to fish in calm sheltered waters for fluking.
Fri., August 30, 2019, Big Fluke
Hey gang, it was a beautiful day to be out on the water. I knew it was going to be a good day when we had 16 keepers fluke on our 1st drift. Was a nice way to start. Doug Meeks of Old Tappan, New Jersey had the biggest one on our boat at 10 pounds 3 oz and big Joe landed a big fluke also fishing the port bow. Tom known as the hammer also his limit. Ralph had his limit and a few others had limits also. Trisha and Pete had four nice fluke in the cooler and had their limits on sea bass. We had a lot of nice keeper sea bass today but that's over after Saturday's trip. The bow of the boat was the spot to be today, plus that's were the big fish were caught. Great bunch of people today and all in all a fun day. The weather looks great for the next 3 day so dont miss out. See you at the dock 7:30am.
Thurs., August 23, 2019, Fluke Report
Hey gang. We had a nice crowd of customers today for a rainy cloudy day. The fluke were biting again. Couple limits on the boat, Pete from Middletown, New York, our regular, had his limit and released a ton of other fluke. Joe and Wayne had 4 in their cooler, several other guys had 2 keepers, some with just 1 and some with just short action. All and all not a bad fluke day. Capt George of the Angler came out to do a little fishing and even made a couple drifts. He said he's going to set up one of his fluke trips either Thursday or Friday on the Prowler5. Will keep you updated on that.
Tues., August 20, 2019, Lots of Fluke Action Again Today
Hey gang. Good day to be out in the ocean with the heat on land. We were able to enjoy the nice cool conditions where we have been fishing the last few days.

Sailing every day 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thanks.

Captain Jack will be at the helm tomorrow and he will bring his A game like last Sunday. Thanks.
Fri., August 16, 2019, Pretty Good Day, Fluke Report
Hey gang, we boated well over 200 fluke today a lot of them went back so many 16” to 17” and 3/4. It really hurts to see the gut hook fish go back, what a shame. Anyway, we got into double digits on keepers today with four guys with two nice keepers. Jimmy Custer also had two. Keith from NY lead the pool with a nice 5 pounder. We’re still fishing, so we will see you in the morning. Thanks P.S. Carlos Vigario of the Fishermen from Hillside N.J. won the pool with 5.8lb fishing the port bow today.
Mon., August 12, 2019, Fluke and Sea Bass Report
Hey gang, we didn't have the great fishing like we had yesterday but it was still a beautiful day on the water a with some great people aboard. We picked away at keeper fluke and plenty of shorts in the mix and we also had multiple limits on some really big sea bass we can keep them until the end of the month. Anyway our next trip will be Wednesday August 14th at 730 to 230 going offshore. Thanks.
Sun., August 11, 2019, Best Fluking so Far
Hey Gang, as Captain George would say "it was a great day to be a party boat fluke captain"! Overall it was an excellent day on the fishing grounds. The weather and drift conditions were perfect and the fluke were hungry. We were the first boat on the offshore grounds and landed a dozen nice keepers on the first drift before the rest of the fleet dialed in on us. The fares onboard worked hard all day and were rewarded with landing quality fluke throughout the day. There were a bunch of limits onboard with Prowler regular Dwayne being the first to limit out. There were also a lot of nice big sea bass added to the catch. Ed Cassar from south Jersey lands the pool with a nice 6.5lb flattie. It was the best day of the season so far with over 40 jumbo fluke landed. Also we're out today picking away. Monday beautiful day but we will not be sailing tomorrow Tuesday with rain wind and lightning our next trip will be Wednesday the 14th
Sat., August 10, 2019, Fluke and Sea Bass Report

Hey gang. We had a nice crowd of family people today. Anyway, we released hundreds of 16inch to 17inch fish again just hard to get the 18" fish but a nice day out on the water we even got to see a giant humpback whale next to the boat today. They’re calling for showers tomorrow but we are sailing so if you want a light crowd come on down. Will see you in the morning.
Mon., August 5, 2019, Fluke Report

Hey gang, we started to go off shore where we have been fishing but there was a bit of a roll on the ocean from yesterday’s weather so I changed our course and we fished the Coney Island flats all day with plenty of good fluke action the only problem is not a lot of keepers. It’s hard throwing back 17" fish.. if they could make some changes and allow us to start keeping them it would be great for everyone. Anyway we will see you guys in the morning and will be heading offshore.

Hey Gang, It was a beautiful day on the water today. We started off fishing in about 65' of water and had great action on the tog up to 8lbs. The action slowed with the change of the tide so we tried a couple of different drops but just could not get them going again. The lack of anchoring conditions did not help.

We fished a new area towards the end of the day when some of the boat traffic left which ended up keeping us late due to drop and reel fishing with jumbo sea bass and porgies.

Hey gang not a lot people down the Harbor for any of the boats today. We sailed with 6 customers and fished the Ambrose channel in the deep pretty much all day, mostly shorts Gary our regular did get a nice keeper fluke to take today's pool. Our next trip will probably be Wednesday or Thursday due to weather conditions.
Sunday September 16 - Fishing Report after the storm.
Hey Gang, the ProwlerV finally went out today. It was a beautiful day on the water and the fishing was excellent however the catching was very tough today. There was still a good size swell left over from the storm which most likely is killing the bite as even the sea bass had lock jaw. ProwlerV regular Dwayne won the pool with a 3lb fluke and was a fish shy of his limit. We will be fishing until the end of the season, there are still fish around we just have to find them! Capt Scott will see you tomorrow morning!
Hey gang next 2 fluke trips will be Sunday and Monday September 16th and 17th
Hey folks, unfortunately there will be no fishing until sometime next week due to the approaching storm. Will keep you updated.

Update Fluke and Sea Bass report Saturday August 18th Hey gang it was a good call not to shape up down there this morning. Only one half day boat sailed today. Everyone else is tied to the dock. Rainy nasty east wind. We had 70 customers on the boat yesterday. Normally we don't carry that many but I had a group of 25 show up at 7:55 a.m. We went off shore again where we've been fishing. We had tough conditions, fast drift to start the day, as conditions slowed down we started to pick away at fish. Nothing great yesterday. Doctor Ford had his limit on fluke. Only about 9 or 10 keeper fluke with around 35 keeper sea bass on the boat yesterday day.

I don't think we'll be able to get out in the ocean tomorrow but I'll be down there to light up and see what goes on thanks. Captain Scott

Wednesday June 27th Fluke Report
Hey hang, I had the boat out again with the crew. We had 19 customers on the boat. I flew out to the grounds where we've been catching fish. I didn't have the right conditions with the wind against the tide and I couldn't keep the boat in the channel. I used the speed of our boat today on the prowl for fish and put a couple extra fish in the coolers. Nothing great today. No limits, some nice fish, some did better than others, some with 2 keeper fluke, some with 1, some with just shorts. Have a few regulars coming tomorrow so we'll see what happens in the morning. Well Saturday, I ended up with 27 customers and it was raining. So hopefully we'll be back out again tomorrow. Thx., Capt. Scott.
