Beach Haven, New Jersey - Saltwater Fishing Report
Inshore Reefs

Summer flounder on the inshore artificial reef sites and wrecks continue to keep the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association busy.

Captain John Lewis of the "Insatiable" says "We had a great week with lots of fluke." Captain John says the throwbacks still far out numbers the keepers but they boated fish up to 4 –pounds. He has also been catching banded rudder fish in the bay for some great light tackle action. Most of his recent trips have been families and the kids are having a great time with all of the action. He plans to run deepwater fluke trips until the season closes and then switch over to canyon trips.

Captain George Finck of "Sparetime Charters" also terms his recent fishing as "great" with daily catches of over 60 fish. Captain George had the Kuster family out for a catch of fluke and bluefish as they went home with a few fish dinners.

Captain Ray Lopez had the "Miss Liane" out for a canyon trip with Scott Jones, Michael Miller, and Neal Smover aboard. Although no fish were boated, there were several knockdowns with a wahoo cutting the monofilament leader and a nice tuna breaking off at the boat. On another trip Captain Ray and junior mate Max Goldman had the Mann family out for a bay fishing trip. The action was steady on a wide variety of fish and the weather cooperated to make it a perfect day on the water.
