Fishing Report – Reel Reaction Charters

It’s been quite awhile since I posted a report on FHQ as I just haven’t had much time do to fishing nearly everyday.  Our Facebook page (Reel Reaction Sportfishing) does have up-to-date reports daily, if you “Like” it – you’ll get them.

Fishing has been “on-fire” in the ocean and the bay/inlet for Summer Flounder aka Fluke.  In the ocean, we have been fishing a variety of structure and sometimes with few boaters around to put 5 to 10 keepers per trip in the box.  Most of the action has been on bucktail and big Gulp baits.  In the bay, it’s been more of a live or fresh bait kind of bite.  But we are still boxing 3 to 4 keepers per bay/inlet trips.  The last few trips have been averaging at least one big fish from 5 to 8 pounds.

I have started booking Striped Bass trips for October and November, and we are participating again this year in the NJ Striped Bass Bonus Permit which allows one 24-inch to 27.99in bass per person to be harvested until the tags run out.

I have minimal openings through the end of the Fluke season and if interested, I would highly recommend ocean trips for these.  Since I’m back at school I can run weekdays 230 to 730pm or weekends.

If interested in booking a charter, book our site ( or call/text 609-290-7709.   As always, we use the highest quality gear and everything is included: gear, tackle, fish-cleaning, and ICE!  It’s “no worries” fishing.  Just come aboard and FISH.

Hi Flier Open Boat/Charter Bluewater Monday and Tues

It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. Did not have time to post any reports. Been booked every day and the weather cooperated to let us keep running. Fished Barnegat Ridge mostly for king  mackerel, bonita, spanish mackerel, and mahi.

The forecasted sea conditions look good for offshore fishing. Looking to run to the tuna grounds on Monday (Labor Day) and either run back there again or fish Barnegat Ridge on Tues, Sept 4.
Monday trip leaves at 2AM and returns around 4PM (usually later). $350 person, 4 people max.
Tuesday trip leaves at either 2AM if we run back to the tuna grounds or 6AM if we run to Barnegat Ridge. The Ridge trip returns at 1PM and is $175 person, 4 people max.
All fish are shared. You can call right up until our departure time to reserve a space.
The boat is also available for your private charter on these two days.
