Another Fun-filled Fluke Trip!

  • **Different boat than usual, same Marina -- Atlantic Star**

    Another fun-filled fluke trip but for a change of pace/scenery let's try the Atlantic Star fishing boat (http://www.atlanticstarfishing.com/) out of Atlantic Highlands (first ave marina). Cost & time are the same. Boat departs @ 8:00am and returns @ 12:30pm. Fees: $42.00, extra $5.00 for rod rental, and extra $5.00 if you want in on the pool. If interested, we can grab lunch afterwards at On The Deck next to the boats. Hope to see some familiar faces again and meet some new ones too!

    Note: Inclement weather will cancel this trip.

    I didn't get back from JFK until 1AM but was up at 5 ready to go. Went outside & it was pouring rain so it was back to bed.

      No prob Bob. It was pouring when I got there and waited until the boats took off, just in case. And of course as I was driving back on Rt 36, the rain was dying down and by the time I got home, 30 min later, rain stopped!! Oh well. I'll schedule another trip later in August.

    Only two 1/2 day boats went out today--Atlantic Star (1/2 full) and Sea Hunter (full boat & Capt Rob at the helm! Too bad no one showed)--the rest stayed docked. And only two full (3/4) day boats went out as well.

    Guess no one showed up. I drove down anyway just in case. No one here, not even Bob. LOL

    Based on accuweather hourly as of 10:30 tonight, it's 51% chance of rain at 7am, with 64% at 8am, staying pretty steady until at least early afternoon. As Bob (Fran) says, the murky water will make for bad fluking. Thinking I should make the call and cancel this trip for another week but it's up to all of you. Here's my cell:[masked]-4741. Feel free to text me.

    Just joined your group. Please tell me how it works?

      We set up a trip and time with specifics and you RSVP if interested and show up. We tend to be at the bow (front of boat). Boats take cash only from what I know. If you RSVP & can't go, it's advisable to update your RSVP so we know not to expect you.

    If we get a lot of heavy rain it will screw up fluking. Off color water & low salinity count messes it all up & they don't eat. Hope for the best-- maybe it will hold off 'till the afternoon.

      Right now I'm still a go. If it's pouring when I wake up then I may cancel... Will check the forecast again in a couple of hours.
