Prowler5 - Sun. July 24th Day Trip - Good Fluking

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out today with some really good people on the boat. I have my Middletown South buddies out on the boat today. State champs 2003, 2004 and 2005. Having a nice day with keepers and nice big sea bass. We also got another doormat – 10-3/4 lbs., 32-1/2 inches boated by regular Bob Newsome of Woodridge, NJ. Fishing in the ocean today. We’re up to around 40 keepers already with short action. We’ve been getting a good drift all day. It was one of those really great days - good fishing and really nice people. Also, we already have 9 guys coming down for tonight's wreck trip (3:30 to 9:30). It's going to be beautiful conditions. Capt. Jimmy and John Chiavarini said to come on down. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat. July 23rd Twilight Fluking 3:30 to 9:00

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We did alright tonight with the twilight fluking. Tommy and Shane worked deck and did a fine job. I'm whipped but I'll see you in the morning. Don't forget about tomorrow's wreck trip 3:30 to 9:30 with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli.

Prowler5 - Fri. July 22nd Very Good Fluking

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out again today with John and Alex from the Sea Streak that worked with us on the Prowler the last couple of years. He's going to be working every Wed. and maybe a day here and there during the week. Chef Mike worked the galley today. We had to wait a little bit before we got the drift movement and then we had a lot of great action with keepers and shorts. First time flukers Leigh with her nieces Cameron and Erica were out today. They boated 12 keepers between the 3 of them and released 25-30 shorts. A lot of nice fluke on the boat today. We didn't get any 12 lbers today like we did yesterday. Today's pool winner was around 4-1/2 - 5 lbs. Fished way in the back where we've been fishing. The weathermen said it was going to be super hot but it was actually beautiful out today with a cool breeze. Speaking of that breeze, I'm out on the 3:30 to 9:00 trip and we're fishing the Navy pier catching shorts and keepers with a light crowd. P.S. Looks great weather-wise for both trips tomorrow. Me, John, Shane and Chef Mike will see you tomorrow morning 5:30 a.m. bright and early. Up for another double tomorrow as my brother is just coming back from New Hampshire on Monday.

Prowler5 - Thurs. July 21st 12lber Biggestg One of the Year

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We're just starting to get a drift and we got our biggest fluke of the year up in the back where we've been fishing. A 12lber on the button, caught by Jessie Cornelio of Jersey City. I have John and Chef Mike as my deckhands today. Sorry no report yesterday. I did a double yesterday. Had a big time charter last night. Corporate people, they were awesome. Great action night last night. Keepers and shorts. UPDATE: Besides the 12lber, we ended up getting some real nice fish for some great people today. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Tues. July 19th Beautiful Day With Limits, Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out today with a very light crowd of 13 anglers with Chef Mike and John working deck today. Still on the first drift, an over two drift. A couple of guys with their limit already, other guys with 3 and 4. My Tues. regulars had a charter with Capt. Steve Spinellii on the Skylarker. Bucktail Bob is winning the pool so far with a nice 5 lber. Catching the fish now in the flats with the engines off. Ended up a good day of fluking and Bucktail Bob did win today's pool.

Prowler5 - Sun. July 17th 3:30 to 9:30 Wreck Trip

Hey gang, I just met the boys down at the boat. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli said they had a better trip than last weekend's wreck trip. He fished ranges of 125 tonight for the ling. It was better fishing for the ling and not as many conga eels as last week. They had some keeper codfish and porgies. No sea bass tonight. They had a light crowd of 17 customers for tonight's trip. Capt. Jimmy also said they had wind with the tide up until 7:00. Codfish won the pool tonight. Capt. Jimmy said it was a fun night out on the ocean and he said he's looking forward to getting back out there again next Sunday. Thanks, Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun. July 17th OK Fluking Again Today

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out again today with John and Chef Mike for my deckhands. Came right to the same area where I fished last night on the twilight trip. I was the first party boat here today. I see the whole fleet here now. Great action again with keepers and shorts. I had 20 keepers on the first drift. I have 5 or 6 customers from last night's twilight trip back again this morning. Don't forget our wreck trip tonight 3:30 to 9:30 with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and John Chiavarini P.S. John and me are off tomorrow. Capt. Glenn, Shane and Chef Mike will be here in the morning. It's going to be a beautiful sunny day tomorrow.

Prowler5 - Sat. July 16th Great 3:30 to 9:00 Twilight Trip With Limits

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out on tonight's 3:30 to 9:00 twilight trip with a good crowd of great customers. Nice family people again and some of my real good regulars. Actually had to tell John he was working a double today with Shane as we had the people for tonight's trip. Fished up in the far far back tonight. Stayed away from all the lightning and rain and had a great action night with tons of 17 inch shorts and some really nice keepers. John said we had five or six guys with their limit tonight. And as I was leaving tonight, one lady thanked me in the parking lot and said that I had an excellent crew and that they did an excellent job tonight. She also was the pool winner. Really nice night to be out tonight. Got a drift all evening, only had a little rain on the way out. Kudos to Shane and John for doing a great job tonight. Me, John and Chef Mike will see you at 5:30 a.m. sharp. Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. Don't forget about Sunday's 3:30 to 9:30 wreck trip with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and John Chiavarini

A lot of family people again. Capt. Glenn also brought his daughter Grace, age 7, who caught her first short fluke and released that and six others. I had a good night last night with the keepers in our bay 3:30 to 9:00 twilight trip. Looking forward to getting out there again tonight. P.S. Don't forget about our mud hole wreck trip tomorrow night 3:30 to 9:30 with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and mate John Chiavarini. Fishing with fresh clams. Thx., Capt. Scott

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out on both trips today. We had a full boat in the day time as we had a group of 45 from North Bergen. Fishing was a little off today in the daytime. Although we got a nice pool fish at the end of the day at the Navy Pier. This afternoon's trip we had a light crowd of 8 customers and we got some nice keepers tonight. One lady had four nice keepers. Capt. Glenn will see you in the a.m. with the boys and I'll be there in the afternoon 3:30 to 9:00. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Thurs. July 14th Another Good Day, Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Capt. Glenn and John have the boat out today with light crowd for a beautiful day in July. Not a lot of people came down to the Harbor today. I guess they listened to those weathermen again. Once again, wrong. Banging away at nice keepers where Capt. Glenn caught them last week. I'll give a follow up report later. UPDATE: Another good day fluke fishing. One of the regulars, Dick, had another nice pool fish today. The sun was out all day. Tomorrow is going to be another beautiful day for both trips so come on down.Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. Twilight fluking 3:30 to 9:00 Fri. and Sat. with Capt. Scott and Sun. wreck trips 3:30 to 9:30 with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and John Chiavarini

Prowler5 - Wed. July 13th Good Day on the Water Again, Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out again today with John and Shane for my deckhands. They did another excellent job today taking care of the people. Great action day with shorts and keepers for another beautiful day in July. A lot of nice family people on the boat today. A woman from Scotland, with a rental rod, took today's pool. Although, we dropped a really nice doormat at the end of the day. Ray, son of Joe Falcon of the party boat Falcon had one that was double digits that spit the hook near the top. It looks like another nice day for tomorrow for the Thurs. regulars fishing the port bow. Capt. Glenn will have the helm tomorrow with the boys.

Prowler5 - Tues. July 12th Another Nice Pool Fish

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. There's been some nice big fish around this week. One of our regulars, port bow, landed a beauty today. We started the day off at the sticks, had a few keepers. Then had the tide change, went up the channel where we've been fishing. Finally started to get a good drift and then we were banging away at nice keepers, plus the short action. Then, we had a big red ship come outbound on us. Shut things down for a while. We started to get a little bite on keepers this afternoon so we stayed out a little late. Fun day out on the water again. Don't miss out tomorrow. It's gonna be a humdinger. I had John and Chef Mike working deck today. They did an awesome job today. See you in the a.m.

Prowler5 - Mon. July 11th Nice Day Fluking

Hey gang. There was some big fluke caught today. Pool winner was in the 8lb. class and there were a lot of other nice quality keepers caught. Fished the channel all day. The weather looks beautiful for the next couple of days. Don't miss out. Gulps have been working great. The pink and fluorescent ones. I'll see you in the morning with John and Chef Mike. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - July 10th Wreck Trip 3:30 to 9:00

Hey gang, I was down the boat last night to meet the boys to see how they did. Capt. Jimmy told me it was a beautiful night, the ocean was flat calm. He said they fished ranges of 110 to 120. Every time they started to have the ling coming they would get invaded by the conga eels. He said they caught some keeper cod fish and a pollock one the pool. High hook was 6 or 7 ling. He said John and Shane did an excellent job. They fished with fresh clams. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun., July 10th, 11 Lb. Fluke... Biggest One So Far

Hey gang, I had the boat out today with John, Chef Mike and Shane for my crew today. I had a fare amount of customers today for a Sunday, although I had four fares get off to get on the half day boat as their other three guys were stuck in traffic. Bummer there... they were regulars anyway, so they will be back. I had a couple of guys on the boat that fished with me on the twilight trip last night and got their limits. Although, it was different today. I started up in the far back in the channel where I like to fish. Banged away at keepers with hardly no movement the first drift. Something like 25 keepers and our biggest one of the season so far 11lbs. Finally got a nice one this year. Chef Mike did a nice job getting him head first into the net. But I got impatient with no drift and left the area. Maybe I should have stayed. But I went to where we caught all of the nice keepers at the Navy pier last night. Had a drift there but it was all basically shorts... a keeper here and there. Some did better than others today. Regular Jerry up in the bow had 12 shorts - no keepers. My other good guy Pete up in the bow didn't have a keeper. I would rate it a slow day. I wasn't happy with it. Too bad we didn't get a drift on the first drop because I know we would have caught them good. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli made it out on the first wreck trip of the year tonight with a decent amount of customers. A lot of the same guys I saw last summer. Hopefully they do well tonight. They have good conditions tonight. John and Shane are out tonight as his deckhands. P.S. Capt. Glenn, Chef Mike and Shane will see you in the morning. Hats off to my first deckhand John Chiavarini. Just worked 21 straight trips including tonight's trip. Will finally get a day off tomorrow, Monday. He told me to work him hard and that's what I've been doing. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat., July 9th, Day Fluke Report and Twilight Report - Limits

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn said that daytime fluking there were some quality fish boated today. He said most of the boats fished our bay. I'm out tonight with a light crowd for the 3:30 twilight trip. I have guys with their limits already and we're catching nice big fluke right in our own backyard at the Navy pier. Too bad people listened to the weathermen again because it's a great night to be out fluke fishing. We're getting a great drift ... .9 .8 all afternoon, with nice great action on the keepers. I think I posted in one of my last reports not to listen to the weathermen because they are around 90% wrong. Well....you should have listened to Capt. Scott. P.S. Tomorrow is going to be great for both trips. Don't miss out. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Fri., July 8, Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn had the boat out today with John and Chef Mike as his deckhands. They had a fare amount of customers today for a beautiful day in July. Fluke fishing was the way it's been all week with loads of action. High hook was four nice beauties, some quality fish. Weather looks great for tomorrow's daytime fluking and conditions look good. Come on down and get in on the action. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Thurs., July 7, OK Fluking Again

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out again today with John and Shane for my deckhands with my Thursday regulars up in the port bow. Love those guys. Didn't have as many people as we did yesterday but still had a fare amount of customers for a beautiful Thursday in July. Had a very good first drift again, 2 hours with a lot of nice keepers and the short action. Did have a couple of ships come through the channel today at around 10:30. Finished the day up near our area close to the dock with more keepers. No limits today, several guys with 3 and 4 though. We had 75 keeper wracks that are already fileted with 100s and 100s of shorts 16 - 17 inch fish. All in all a fun day again. P.S. Do not listen to the weathermen as they are wrong 90% of the time. Come down and get in on some of the great action fluking this season. Don't forget about our twilight fluke trips Fri. and Sat. 3:30 to dark and our wreck trips on Sundays with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and our deckhand John 3:30 to 9:30. Thx., Capt. Scott.

Prowler5 - Wed., July 6, Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out today with a nice crowd of customers for a beautiful Wed. in July with John Chiavarini and Chef Mike working deck for me. Banging away at nice keepers with short action all morning. Although we just had a big ship come outbound. He looked light so we'll see what happens. I'm fishing far back in the channel today with party boat Captain John. I'll give a follow-up report later. UPDATE: Well the ship didn't hurt anything. We got a nice 7lber right after it went by. Waited for the outgoing tide and banged away at 100s and 100s of 17 inch fluke with nice keepers mixed in. Turned out to be a great day with a lot of action. Looking forward to getting out tomorrow morning again. John and Mike busted their tail today and did a great job.with pics. P.S. Don't forget about our twilight fluke trips Fri. and Sat. 3:30 to dark and our special wreck trips on Sun. 3:30 to 9:30 with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and John Chiavarini(formerly of the Gambler).

Prowler5 - Fluke Report July 4th and 5th

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We had a nice big crowd of customers on the boat yesterday for the 4th of July day trip with John Chiavarini and Shane. We had our group of 34 show up yesterday and John said they were totally awesome. They picked away at nice fluke all day...keepers and shorts. I had the boat out last night up the East River for the fireworks with a light crowd of 20 customers and we had an awesome time watching the fireworks. Our people had a blast and so did me, John and Chef Mike. As far as today - thank God for our regulars because usually it's slow for customers the day after the 4th of July. We had 13 regulars today and it was pretty good fluking again. Banged away at nice keepers all day with 100s and 100s of shorts. Weather looks great for the next couple of days, good conditions. So come on down. P.S. Twilight fluking Fri., and Sat. 3:30 to dark and Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and John Chiavarini on Sun. 3:30 to 9:30 for the mudhole wreck trips. One footnote - John Chiavarini (formerly of the Gambler) is now working every day. Plus, doubles on Sat. and Sun. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun, July 3rd, 3:30 Twilight Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out for the 2nd trip today with John Chiavarini and Shane for my crew tonight. Had a great drift all afternoon and banged away at nice keeper fluke, plus the short action. I fished an area that I fished a couple of weeks ago where I had caught them. We were the only boat there this evening. Everybody went home with dinner. High hook was 4 keepers tonight, others with 3, 2. Not bad. Totally awesome evening on the water. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun, July 3rd, Daytime Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out today and worked hard to put keepers in the boat. I stopped short in the channel today as there was a big out-bounder coming out first thing this morning. And, we got a good shot at banging away at some nice fish. Big whale in the channel also. Fishing was much better yesterday morning. We had some nice big quality fish today. My deckhand John Chiavarini and Chef Mike worked hard today. John said his 3 regulars in the bow had 3 nice keepers each. There were several other customers with 3 and 2 and some with just one, others with just shorts today. No limits today but all in all OK fluking today. Getting ready to go back out on the 3:30 twilight fluking trip. P.S. Don't forget about our wreck trips every Sunday starting July 10th with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli and our deckhand John Chiavarini (formerly of the Gambler). Just want to say it's a real pleasure having John aboard the Prowler5 this season. I've been getting a lot of compliments and e-mails about him working deck for us this season. I'm also going to add some 36 hour tuna trips in the Fall. But that's down the road. Everybody have a happy and safe 4th of July from me, Capt. Glenn and Capt. Jimmy, John, Chef Mike and Shane. We look forward to seeing you on the dock. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat., Good Fluking

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Capt. Glenn had the boat out yesterday with 11 people. Fluking was good. Rain didn't start until the afternoon. Weathermen got us again on the day trip. We didn't sail the 3:30 trip. But, today, we're out with good conditions and we're banging away at nice keeper fluke and it's early. Got the whole crew working today - John, Shane and Chef Mike for a beautiful Sat. in July. Come on down and join us for the twilight fluking trips also - tonight and tomorrow (Sun.) July 2nd and 3rd. And yes we are definately fishing the morning trip 7:30 to 2:30 on Mon., July 4th. P.S. Don't forget about our special mudhole wreck trips with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli every Sun., beginning July 10th 3:30 to 9:30. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Thurs., Very Good Fluking

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out yesterday with a light crowd of 15 customers. We didn't really have movement yesterday. We started to pick away at some keepers, but like I said the conditions weren't good yesterday. Today, we have good conditions and we're drifting out at a nice pace, banging away at a lot of nice keeper fluke. With plenty of 17 inch shorts being boated. Gulps have been working very well so far on the first drift. UPDATE: Two hours on the first drift - some limits, guys with 3 and 4. Great action. Just in time for the weekend - weather looks great. Don't forget about our twilight fluking trips Fri., Sat. and Sun. I'll be around the dock today when I get in at 2:30 if anyone is interested in buying 4th of July cruise tickets. Oh, I forgot to mention John and Chef Mike are working deck today. Doing a fine job, with 30 anglers. Thx., Capt. Scott.

Prowler5 - Tues., Good Fluking

Hey gang. Like yesterday it took some time for the incoming tide conditions to come together. While waiting for conditions to come together in the channel we tried a couple of drifts on the Keansburg ledge. Nothing there, so went back to the channel and slowly but surely started to pick away. We caught some nice fish along with a bunch of shorts. We only had to make two very long drifts, holding the boat in the channel. I expect the fishing to hold up, so come on down and get into the action. Thx., Capt. Scott. P.S. I guess everyone and their mother will be fueling up on Thurs. with the 23 cent fuel tax coming on Fri. Another rip-off by our government. What a joke.

Prowler5 - Mon., June 27th, Good Fluking

Hey gang, we had a light crowd of people today 17 fares. Fishing was a little slow in the morning until we got the right conditions. Once we started moving with the incoming tide we picked away at some nice fluke. We had a couple of limits, a couple with three and four and most everybody went home with enough for dinner. The action was good with the shorts and keepers combined. Weather looks good for rest of week. Come on down and enjoy the fun. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun., Very Good Fluking

Hey gang. Good fluking again with some limits. Just like yesterday - a lot of guys with 3 and 4 keepers, a lot of guys with 2 and 3. Quality, big fish. It's been a great fluke season at Atlantic Highlands for all the boats. Come on down. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Good Twilight 3:30-9:00 Saturday Trip

Hey gang. We had Rich Dino's group out on the Prowler5 for our twilight fluking yesterday. And, we had a good drift all afternoon. We ended the evening with 31 keepers and a couple of hundred shorts. Very nice people aboard. Hope to see them again. I'll be out on our next twilight trip today (Sun.) 3:30 to 9:00. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat., June 25th - Very Good Fluking

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here, it was a good day with a lot of good quality fish and limits. Guys with 3 and 4, a lot of guys with 2 and 3, nice big fish. It was a busy day. We had 3 deckhands working hard. P.S. I'm running tomorrow's twilight fluke trip 3:30 to 9:00, come on down. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Fri., June 24th - Great Start to the Fluke Day - Keepers

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out today. Our boat was out yesterday with a very light crowd of 10 customers. There was absolutely no rain and the sun was even out. No people down for any of the boats. There you go, the weathermen took another fluke day away from us in the prime time of the season. Anyway, there was nothing great to report yesterday. But today we have wind and tide together and I have keeper fluke flying in the boat. Unfortunately, a monstrous orange ship just came outbound. Hopefully we can get them back going again. I'll give a follow up report later. UPDATE: We've been banging away at nice keepers with the engines running all day today. Just in time for the weekend..Ended up a good day of fluking. Nice quality keepers. Several with 4 keepers; a lot with 2 and 3. P.S. Tomorrow, Saturday's 3:30 to 9:00 trip, we have a private charter. So come out and join us for our morning trip, but not for the afternoon trip. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Wed., June 22nd - Fluke Report

Hey gang, it was so-so fluking again for today. Got a little fast in the channel at around 12:30 and had to move in to our bay where we picked away to finish the day. Some had three, some had one and two and some had shorts. Even the younger girl had a couple of keepers. It was a really nice day out on the water today. Thx., Capt. Scott. Capt. Glenn and Chef Mike will see you in the a.m. We have Thurs. regulars coming in the morning so we will be sailing. P.S. Don't forget about our twilight fluking Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00 P.S. Just an FYI - we are chartered for this Sat.'s (6/25) 3:30 pm twilight fluke trip.

Prowler5 - Tues., June 21st - Fluke Report

Hey gang. It was a so-so fluke day again today...kind of like yesterday. The problem today was that there were a lot of ships, in-bound and out-bound and they shut the fishing down for a while. Anyway, we worked hard to put keepers in the boat, like yesterday. Some guys with 3 keepers, some with one and two and some guys with just shorts. Tomorrow, Wed., is going to be a beautiful day. Let's hope we have less traffic tomorrow with the ships. Myself, John and Chef Mike look forward to seeing you in the a.m. P.S. Don't forget about twilight fluke trips every Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Mon., June 20th - Fluke Report

Hey gang, we were out on the fluke grounds today. Steaming out to the grounds with a decent amount of customers for a Monday and we stopped abruptly at the tip of the Hook as there was a ship in the channel were we've been catching all the fluke. Boated five nice keepers first thing on the piece in the morning and then moved back into our bay were we had wind and tide together. It was just so-so fluking all day. We did have one guy with his limit and some others with 3 and 4 and some with two and one. Certainly not the beat down fluking we've been having when we have the right conditions. It was wind against tide also to fish the channel today. Though conditions are favorable for Tues. and Wed. Looking forward to getting back out there on the grounds on Wed. with John and Chef Mike. Capt. Glenn, Chef Mike and Donny will see you tomorrow in the a.m. P.S. I wish I would of had a drift like Capt. Glenn did Sun. morning when he boated over 60 keepers on the first drift. I had no movement on Sat. We look forward to seeing you at the dock. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun., June 19th - Happy Father's Day - Good Fluking

Hey gang, Happy Father's Day. Capt. Glenn called and said a good crowd of customers today and another good day of fluking fishing the channel. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat., June 18th - Day Fluke Report

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out today. First time all year a lot of people down for all of the boats. I actually left early this morning at 6:45. Had the engines running all day in the channel, working the throttles. Never turned them off. Never really got a drift.... .2 .3 all day. But, we did pick away at some keepers. A lot of boat traffic today. Should be less crowded tomorrow, being Father's Day. Had 3 guys working deck today....John, Big Mike and Mike. Wish I could of had them a little bit busier with the nets today. Anyway, that's the report. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Fri., June 17th - Twilight Fluke Trip 3:30 - 9:00

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out tonight with Shane. We weren't able to fish the channel like the boys have been doing in the daytime, but we're fishing right in our bay, right in our backyard. Pretty decent fluking for 13 customers. Al, our old timer, was high hook with 8 keepers. Keeping five and releasing 3 and it looks like he's going to win the pool also. Good going Al. Couple others with limits, some guys with 3 and 4, some with one and two and a couple with none. All in all pretty nice evening. Good drifting all evening here with the short action mixed in too. I'll be back at it tomorrow with John, Mike and Mike as my deckhands. One footnote - Capt. Jimmy Rivelli is now on all the Sunday night trips for the rest of the season on the Prowler5. He's going to start the mudhole trips, July 10th, every Sunday.

Prowler5 - Thurs., June 16th - Great Fluking Continues

Hey gang, the great fluking continues... same area. With beautiful fluke being landed, several limits. Not a lot of people down at Atlantic Highlands Harbor today, so we were fortunate enough to have 18 anglers, mostly all regulars show up for this fantastic fluking we've been having. Had the two deckhands working the nets all morning and it's only 11:55. Ended the day with plenty of keepers and limits. Great day for the family, parents and kids today. We have great sunny weather for Fri., Sat. and Sun. Don't forget about our twilight fluke trips 3:30 to 9:00 Fri., Sat. and Sun. Chef Mike everyday.

Prowler5 - Wed., June 15th - Great Fluking - Limits, Limits, Limits

Hey gang, fishing the same area again. Limits already and it's not even 9:00 a.m. Even got some real nice big ones, a couple of 8 lbers. This has been some of the best fluking in the last 20 - 25 years....like the old days. We even have Charlie Batch's family members of the Pittsburgh Steelers fishing today on the Prowler5 enjoying this beautiful June day. UPDATE: It turned out to be another banner day....all kinds of limits around the boat. Today's pool winner was Leo Wedlock from Bensalem, PA with an 8lber. It really is great fluking. You have to take advantage of this great fishing. We look forward to seeing you in the a.m. Chef Mike everyday. Twilight fluking every Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00.

Prowler5 - Tues., June 14th Best Fluking of the Year

Hey gang, I didn't do a report yesterday because we didn't light up - we wanted to give it a break with all of that wind. My last report for Sunday was very slow with all that wind ... we ended the day with about 20 keepers and none of the 3:30 boats fished Sunday afternoon. BUT today the good fluking continues with nice big fluke. Fishing the channel with some limits already. It's a beautiful, sunny day and we have our Tues. and Thurs. senior guys out today. UPDATE: Turned out to be the best fluking in years....Capt. Glenn worked real hard in the channel. Banner day - with outstanding fluking and limits. Today's pool winner was Doug Weiss of Lafayette, NJ. We look forward to seeing you at the dock. Chef Mike every day. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sun., June 12th Fluke Report

Hey gang, I just got off the phone with Capt. Glenn and here's the 10:30 report... after the beat down and all the limits we had on the boat yesterday and all the big fluke, it is the complete opposite for today's trip. He said they have a fair amount of anglers for a Sunday and him and Mike are out there in the bay now. Could not fish in the channel where we had the beat down yesterday because it's literally blowing 35 mph out there right now. It's funny how fluking can change from one day to the next. It's all about conditions. Anyway, I'll be shaping up for tonight's 3:30 to 9:00 twilight fluking trip with John Chiavarini and greenhorn Shane. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Sat., June 11th Fantastic Fluking - Limits

Hey gang. We have Jim Benson's group out today (Sat. morning) and the wind finally died down after blowing hard the last two days and we're able to get back to the channel where we were fishing a few days ago. It's not even 8:30 and we have guys with limits. All big keepers, all around the boat. Our two deckhands, John and Shane are busting their tails right now with the nets flying. Wow, this is like the old days - 25 30 years. ago. This is great to see the fluke are still here in the channel after the blow we had the last couple of days. Turning out to be a beat down on the keeper fluke today...all kinds of limits. Banner day!!!! Next trip - twilight fluking tonight 3:30 to 9:00... I can't wait to get out there. P.S. Chef Mike every day; twilight fluking every Fri., Sat. Sun.

Prowler5 - Fri., June 10th 3:30 Fluke Report - 6-1/2 lber.

Hey gang. We had only six anglers for tonight's 3:30 fluke trip. The first fish caught was a 6-1/2 lber. caught by Bob Newsome of Woodridge, NJ. High hook was 4 tonight.

Prowler5 - Thurs. and Fri., June 9th and 10th Report - Windy

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out on the fluke grounds today and will again for the second trip. Let me start with yesterday's report. Capt. Glenn had the boat out yesterday with 22 anglers with very strong winds out of the NW. He had to fish down the beach where waters were calm. 15 keepers with a couple of hundred shorts yesterday. Didn't take any pics - the boys were whooped with that wind. Today I fished down around Sea Bright, Monmouth Beach area with hundreds and hundreds of short action all day. John and Mike were busy with the nets. Somewhere in the range of 30 something keepers today. I actually had to put the pedal to the metal - 23 knots - to get in for this afternoon's fluke trip (which I will be going on). Nice crowd of customers today for a beautiful June day - also one of the 3/4 boats was chartered today. Speaking of charters, we have one tomorrow (day time). Our deckhand John said Nancy of West Belford out-fished the guys today - high hook of 4 keepers. Thx., Capt. Scott

Prowler5 - Wed., June 8th - Big Fluke, Limits Again

Hey Gang, extremely light turn out for the boats that sailed today, but it did not stop the great fluking -- a lot of six, seven, and eight pounders. At least we got out there and our deck hand, John, got to make a day's pay. This is some of the best fluking we have had in many years with these beautiful fluke. Don't waste time, come out and get them. See you in the morning. P.S. charter Saturday morning only. Captain Scott

Prowler5 - Good Fluking Continues With Limits, Tues., June 7th

Hey gang. Nice crowd of regulars for a beautiful day fluking. Several limits with nice fish in the 20 to 21 inch category. Chef Mike and Shane worked deck today and were busy all day. Capt. Glenn power drifted the channel all day to put beautiful keeper fluke in the coolers and buckets. I was down at the boat at 2:30 when I docked and the other fluke boats had nice rack barrels also. Which is great to see. Awesome start to the fluke season with this beautiful weather. PS Chartered this Sat. daytime only....we'll be sailing the twilight fluke trip 3:30 to 9:00. It's fluke time baby.... come on down!

Prowler5 - Mon., 6/6 - New Crew and Fluke Report

Hey gang. After yesterday's bad forecast, only a few boats sailed in the a.m. and no boats sailed in the afternoon for fluke. The halfers and both 3:30 boats. Too bad because the weather wasn't really that bad yesterday. The weathermen took another prime day away from us that we can't get back. But, it is a beautiful Monday and we're out banging away at nice keeper fluke today. Fishing the channel again. All the boats are out today, even the charter boats. Anyway, we have a brand new crew this year. As many of you Prowler customers know already. We have chef Mike, that's also been working deck when needed. We have Capt. Kenny working deck and greenhorn Shane that the people love and I'm happy to say we've just added John Chiavarini, formerly of the party boat Angler. He called me a couple of nights ago and said he was put on waivers and I was very happy to scoop him up! It's like the NFL, when somebody is let go it provides great opportunity for the next boat. And that's us! John has his 100 ton captain's license and use to work on the Gambler out of Point Pleasant. John use to fish with my dad on the old Prowler and he's very experienced with anchors, keeping the boat clean and taking care of the customers. He's working his first trip with us today and it is a pleasure to have him aboard the Prowler 5 this season. I will try to post pictures later this afternoon, but as a lot of you guys know, my wife's mom, Patty, pass away on Friday and we have the wake all day today and the funeral tomorrow. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the dock. Thanks, Capt. Scott - Prowler5

Prowler5 - 4th of July - Fireworks Tickets Are On Sale Now

Hey gang, 4th of July tickets for the fireworks are on sail now. They are $75 per ticket. You can get them at the boat or if you'd like you can mail a check to Prowler Charter Fishing at 61 Leonard Avenue, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716.

Prowler5 - Chartered Sat. June 11th (Daytime Trip)

PROWLER5 - SAT. JUNE 4, NEW BATCH OF BIG FLUKE, BEST OF THE YEAR SO FAR

BEAT ON KEEPER FLUKE June 4th Sat. Best fluking of the year so far. Nice crowd of peeps for a beautiful day. All nice keepers coming in over the rail now, with several limits and great action, best of the year no doubt New batch of fish moved in a few days ago, 20 to 21 inch fish. Nice to see. Going out at 3:30pm. Come out and join us this afternoon. Thx Capt Scott also sailing 730mp Sunday 5th for sure.................................By the way, we had Capt. George's customers out with us today because he had a charter. The crew said they are very nice guys. It was a pleasure to have them aboard today and Capt. George can have our customers next Sat. June 11 (daytime) as we have a company charter.

PROWLER5 - THURS., JUNE 2, GOOD BOUNCE BACK, FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn said he has great conditions today for the fluke trip and they are banging away at keepers. I'll post pictures later of some of the nice keepers. Fishing in our bay, very close to our dock. Even got into the cocktail blues a little while. And, once again I don't want to sound like a broken record, but what a pleasure it is to have Mike from our galley working deck again today. He's been working every day - doing the galley also and I love the way he fillets the fluke - just like a professional chef. He's one of the best that we've ever had on the Prowler5 and he's just such a nice guy too boot. Thanks Mike. Don't forget about our twilight fluke trips every Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00. Chef Mike's gourmet meals every day. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - WEDS, JUNE 1ST, FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn said not a lot of people down for the party boats today in Atlantic Highlands. We were fortunate to have 10 customers. Some regulars, Bucktail Bob and others. Fishing was so-so again today with like 6 - 7 keepers and the short action. I've been at the boat every day and I noticed the mates have been filleting the sea robins people are starting to catch on that they are fine to eat - bread em and fry em. Anyway, we're looking for a bounce back for tomorrow and we look forward to having you aboard. I heard on the weather channel that Saturday is going to be one of the top 10 weather days of the year. Don't forget about our twilight fluking trips, every Fri., Sat. and Sun. afternoon 3:30 to 9:00 and Chef Mike every day for gourmet meals. See you in the morning.

PROWLER5 - TUES, MAY 31ST, FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn said he had 19 customers today aboard for the fluke trip, not bad for the day after a holiday. Nice cool breeze out there and plenty of sunshine. Fishing was so-so, with the short action. Fished our bay and even fished the ocean today down the beach. Had the shorts coming pretty fast and then it just stopped. Anyway, no pictures today. High hook was 3 keepers. We'll be back at it tomorrow and look forward to seeing you. Mike worked deck again today and he wanted to thank the guys on the boat. Good guys. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 FLUKE STREAK CONTINUES - MON., MAY 30th

Hey gang, Capt Glenn called and said it was a pretty tough day out there for fluking today. He said they have a handful of keepers on the boat and something like 30 shorts that they boated. Hard conditions. He fished the ledges, it just really didn't happen today for us. One customer ended the day with 3 keepers. This was the slowest day so far. That's fishing for you - you can't catch them every day. Anyway, we'll be right back at it tomorrow. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 FLUKE STREAK CONTINUES - MON., MAY 30th

Hey gang. The streak continues. We're out again with 13 customers and it's not even too bad of a day, a couple of light showers. Anyway, glad we're out. This makes 13 straight fluke trips in a row, including the twilight trips, Fri., Sat. and Sun. So we haven't missed a beat. As of 9:15, there's a couple of nice keeper fluke in the boat with short action. Pictures and follow up later report later. As I posted in my last report, on the Sun. twilight trip, we caught our biggest one of the year so far, an 8-1/2 lber and we lost another big one about the same size at the boat. But one out of two ain't bad, I'll take it. I heard the sun will be out again tomorrow, Tues. Come down and join us. It's fluke time baby! P.S. Twilight fluke trips, 3:30 to 9:00 Fri., Sat. and Sun. Chef Mike every day - daytime.

PROWLER5 SUN., MAY 29, TWILIGHT FLUKING- BIGGEST ONE SO FAR 8-1/2

Hey gang, Joaquin Claro of N. Arlington caught a nice 8-1/2 lb. fluke on tonight's (Sun.) twilight fluke trip. We are shaping up tomorrow (Mon.) Hopefully the rain won't be too bad, if it is bring a raincoat. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 29th, FLUKE REPORT AND THE TWILIGHT TRIP

Hey gang, Captain Scott here. Nice big crowd of customers today for a beautiful holiday Sunday. Captain Glenn picked away at keepers with shorts. I have the boat out this afternoon on the twilight trip with 16 customers. Pretty good, that means we got out Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on the twilight trips. A couple of keepers so far with shorts, but I can't fish tonight where I fished last night at the navy pier because the conditions are way to fast on the drift. Pretty funny -- Tommy from the Atlantic Stars customer's nice Penn Reel and pole went overboard and we just boated it. Here are some pictures from the day trip. We will be shaping up tomorrow. Hopefully it is not raining too bad and if it is, bring a raincoat. We don't like to lose any fluke days this time of the year. It's fluke time baby. Thanks, Captain Scott.

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 28th, FLUKE REPORT FROM TODAY AND THE TWILIGHT TRIP

Hey gang, we were out both trips again today, just as Friday. Capt. Glenn had the boat out in the daytime and worked hard to put keepers in the boat. Regular, Pete, had a nice one around 6lbs. It was better with the keepers on Friday's day trip, but as far as this afternoon - I have the boat out fluking again with 13 customers and fluking is better this afternoon. I'm fishing the Navy Pier all afternoon. I have a high hook of 4 keepers, another guy with 3 keepers, plus the short action. All and all not a bad evening. We've been getting out every day fluking now. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow, both trips. Capt. Glenn will be there in the A.M. and I'll be there for 3:30 twilight fluke tomorrow, Sunday. Our chef Mike has been doing an awesome job, taking care of everything in the galley and helping out on deck also. It's a pleasure to have him aboard this year. Thanks, Mike. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 27th, FIRST 3:30 TWILIGHT FLUKE TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I have the boat out tonight on the first twilight fluking trip. We have 10 customers and Kathy boated the first one - a nice 3 lber. It's a beautiful evening out here, we're fishing very close to our dock. We look forward to seeing you on the 7:30 and 3:30 trips Sat. and Sun. Thx., Capt. Scott UPDATE - We boated some more keepers with good short action. Turned out to be a beautiful evening. Very nice people on the boat tonight. Me, Tyrone and Kyle had a lot of fun with them.

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 27th, GOOD FLUKING CONTINUES 7:30 TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn said the good fluking continues with nice keepers again. 10 year old little girl has 4 keeper fluke already. This is what it's all about - family people catching fluke. It's fluke time baby. UPDATE Fishing slowed down some with the south wind in the afternoon. But still a good day. P.S. Don't forget about our twilight fluke special Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00. Chef Mike every day - gourmet meals.

PROWLER5 - THURS., MAY 26th, BANNER DAY FLUKING, KEEPERS

Hey gang, this was our best day of the year so far fluking with the keepers. I don't want to start giving numbers, but great action with short action too. This is really good to see the fluke in here like this for the end of May. The fluke are right in our own backyard. It's fluke time baby! We are all ready with plenty of bait for the big holiday weekend coming up. The weather is going to be absolutely gorgeous. I'm actually looking forward to fluking tomorrow, Fri., 3:30 to 9:00. Galley guy Mike is here everyday. We're fluking everyday as well as Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 to 9:00. Thx. Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - WED., MAY 25th, FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn called and said he's out on the fluke grounds today. We didn't sail yesterday with the rain. Only a few of the boats got out yesterday with light crowds. Today's the opposite - it's a beautiful day. Got some good fluke regulars out on the boat today - Bucktail Bob and others. So far the 10:00 report is 3 keeper fluke, with a lot of 17 and 17-1/2 inches going back. It's a shame too, the government makes it so hard on us fishermen. With all of the laws and restrictions. It's not like the old days. We're fluking 3:30 to 9:00 Fri., Sat. and Sun. now too. We have galley guy Mike out every day for gourmet meals. It's supposed to be a nice holiday weekend. We're looking forward to seeing you. P.S. Capt. Glenn and me were at Capt. Jimmy's service Monday from the fishing boat the Mistake. He will be missed. He was one of the best fisherman that I knew and was a great guy. He was always very helpful. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - MON., MAY 23RD, FLUKE REPORT - IT'S FLUKE TIME

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Glenn has a few nice keepers in the boat already. He said it's a beautiful, beautiful day out on the grounds today. Nice to see some good weather for a change. Since there is fluke around and the government only lets us fish for so many months, we're going to switch over 3:30 to 9:00 pm, Fri., Sat. and Sun. Special Afternoon Fluke Fishing. My new policy is that if we have five customers that show up to fish - we sail. I spoke with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli yesterday and he is very excited to start our mudhole wreck trips starting Sun., June 26th 3:30 to 9:30 and we'll do those specials right up until Labor Day in September. Capt. Glenn, Capt. Jimmy and me look forward to seeing you at the dock. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 22nd, 3:30 REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out again tonight and after docking early last night with plenty of big blues it was the complete opposite tonight. We were out with nine regulars and never caught a bluefish. Go figure, that's fishing for you. It sure was a beautiful night out on the water though. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 22nd, GOOD FLUKING AGAIN

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn had good fluking again today. A lot of nice quality fish, plus good action with the shorts. Today's pool winner was somewhere around 6 lbs. This is very encouraging to see with the keepers. Let's hope it continues. It would be great to have a great fluke season with keepers. Anyway, we're off to a good start. Capt. Glenn will be back at it tomorrow morning, Mon., the 23rd, come on down. Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. Full galley, chef Mike has everything.

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 21st, GREAT ACTION - 3:30 TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out tonight and I noticed our afternoon boats carried very light for customers. That's because of the weathermen saying it was going to be windy and rainy, but it was the complete opposite of that....no wind, no rain. It was actually a beautiful evening. I didn't even have the anchors set and we had fish on. Plenty of big blues. We're actually docking a half hour earlier at 8:30. Bottom line is that the weathermen got us again. Anyway, Capt. Glenn did pretty good with the fluke today. He'll be there in the morning and I'll be back at it 3:30 to 9:00 tomorrow afternoon/night (Sunday). Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 21st, UPDATE FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn reports we had steady action in the morning. A few nice keepers, then slowed down but picked up again early afternoon. Ended up with several nice keepers. We are fluking every day 7:30 - 2:30 (weather permitting); I will be shaping up for this afternoon's 3:30 blues/bass trip. Capt. Glenn will see you in the a.m. Thx, Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 21st, FLUKE REPORT AND FRI. NIGHT, MAY 20th REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn called and said he's got a couple of nice keeper fluke in the boat already. We're fishing pretty close to our dock. Nice to see there's some fluke around for the first day and yesterday's day trip was a complete beat down on all big blues. Last night we had EJ's guys, 25 union workers. Their bus was stuck in traffic on the Parkway so we didn't leave until 6:45 but Capt. Glenn worked hard for them and found the fish on the third drop of the night. All nice big blues and we actually docked early at 11:00 p.m. The crew also would like to thank last night's charter for the very generous tip. Sailing tonight 3:30 to 9:00 for bass and blues. I'll have the boat out tonight. Tomorrow's day trip looks good for fluke. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 20th, FLUKE STARTS TOMORROW, SAT. MAY 21st

Hey gang, Capt. Glenn called and said they have great fishing with the big blues again with a decent crowd of around 20 peeps today for a beautiful Friday. They have 3 gaffs moving all the time, even the galley guy Mike has to be out there today. We have a charter this evening with 25 ironworkers - going out fishing for the same thing. We start our fluke trips tomorrow, daily 7:30 to 2:30. Although we will still stay bass and blues 3:30 to 9:00 Sat. and Sun. for now. We look forward to seeing you this weekend. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 14th, GOOD ACTION AGAIN, BASS AND BLUES REPORT

Hey gang, I just got off the phone with Capt. Glenn and he said all of the Atlantic Highlands boats had a decent amount of customers for a beautiful Saturday out on the water. We're fishing right in our backyard, close to the dock and banging away at the big blues again. Not too many bass. All big blues. Even the Belmar boats are fishing our bay today. It's going to be a beautiful afternoon for the 3:30 to 9:00 trip today, come on down. Fishing with fresh bunker. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - THURS., MAY 12th, BEAT DOWN

Hey gang. It was an all out beat down on the big blues today. Not many bass, but all the big blues you wanted, up to 16 lbs. Beautiful day out on the water. We're definately sailing tomorrow, Fri. we have a small group from PA coming down. Capt. Glenn and Al Teresi had the boat out today and Mike, our galley guy, was helping to gaff the fish today. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - MON., MAY 9th, BASS AND BLUES REPORT

Hey gang. Capt. Glenn called and said he and Al Teresi had the Prowler5 out today with 10 customers. Pool winner was a nice 20 bass caught by TJ and they picked away at the blues all day today on fresh bunker. Shaping up in the morning. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 7th, 30 lb. STRIPED BASS

Hey gang. Capt. Glenn called and said they caught their biggest bass of the year. A solid 30 lber on fresh bunker. They are also banging away at the big blues pretty good too. Next two trips - today 3:30 to 9:00 and tomorrow, Mother's Day 7:30 to 2:30 only.

PROWLER5 - THURS., MAY 5TH, BIG BLUES AND BASS REPORT

Hey gang. I forgot to give the 3:30 report this past Saturday. Capt. Glenn had the boat out that evening with 16 customers. They fished locally and they got a good bite on the big blues with some bass mixed in. Pool winner was a 31inch bass...all gaffing fish. Not a lot of our party boats from Atlantic fished this past week with the crappy weather, but from what I hear the smaller boats have been catching some nice bass up far in NY on live bunker. Tomorrow evening we have a special charter with EJ Davis Group, 18 steelworkers. And, Saturday looks like a beautiful day for both trips! Hopefully this east wind pushes more fish out of the river. Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. One footnote, we're only going to fish the 7:30 to 2:30 trip on Mother's Day, May 8th. We're not going to light up for the 3:30 trip because that is always generally an extremely slow afternoon. A lot of people take their mom's and wife's out for Mother's Day dinner.

PROWLER5 - APRIL 15, 2016 - BASS REPORT AND NEW CHEF

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Our last bass report was similar to the last one with a dozen keepers and 30-35 shorts, although we were fishing with fresh bunker and caught fish on the rubber lures. You regulars know the ones. We didn't try to light up today as we got our brand new kitchen galley fixed up. We have a professional chef, Mike, running the galley this season. He has everything that you can imagine. It's like a regular restaurant in there as well as all the good tackle. Capt. Glenn, Kenny, Mike and Donny will see you in the a.m. Sailing everyday 7:30 am to 2:30 pm and we start our 3:30 pm to 9:00-9:30 pm trips starting Sat. April 23rd and Sun. April 24th. When the kids get out of school we'll add some more afternoon days in. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli will be running all of the Sunday afternoon trips. Capt. Glenn will be running this weekend. I'll see you during the week. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - MONDAY, APRIL 11th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We were out yesterday (Sunday) with 14 anglers. We got into the jig fish pretty good, ended up with 25 shorts and 10 keepers. We’re looking forward to seeing you this weekend.

PROWLER5 - FOLLOW UP REPORT - SAT. APRIL 2nd BASS

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well, here's the follow up report. The boys are on their way in. They did not have the bird life that was out there yesterday in the far back on the Jersey side. But, Capt. Glenn said, the small boats that were trolling caught the stripped bass. That was the way to go today. Capt. Glenn said they boated two short stripped bass back there and lost a keeper at the boat. They finished the day at Keansburg and put another bass in the boat. Unfortunately, it was another short. Anyway, it is encouraging that there is stripped bass around this early in the season. Looks like it's going to be very windy tomorrow and cold during the week. So our next two stripped bass trips will be Sat. April 9th and Sun. April 10th. Thx., Capt. Scott, Prowler5

PROWLER5 - SAT. APRIL 2nd BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I just got a call from the boys and they're out on the bass grounds. Way far up in the back where they caught the fish yesterday. They said the birds are not up, just a couple of the trollers catching some shorts, nothing happening just yet. They are out with 14 anglers, not bad for this rainy Saturday. I'll give a follow up report later this afternoon. P.S. Next bass trip will be sometime toward the end of the week. We'll keep you updated. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT. APRIL 2nd ONLY

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Ritchie told me today (Thursday) that the small boats caught the striped bass pretty good. So things are looking up. We have plenty of fresh clams for the weekend (Sat. only) so come down and join us. We have some guys coming so we will be sailing. See you at the dock. Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. Ritchie will be working deck Saturday and he said to bring down any kind of rubber lures or anything for jigging.

PROWLER5 - UPDATE - SAT. MARCH 26th - OUT ON THE FIRST BASS TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We gave it a valiant effort today, but we did not catch any stripped bass. We covered a lot of ground, from Cliffwood Beach to the flats to Keansburg to Port Monmouth. Made many drops. Just was nothing to catch. Hats off to the crew today, Kenny and Ritchie for making sure we had fresh clams for today's trip and using extra bait working hard to try and catch some fish. If there were some fish to be caught today I would have shaped up during the week - but that being said - we're going to wait until Saturday, April 2nd before we sail again. Our water temperature was inoperative today. Although, we had a little boat, tell one of my deckhands, Capt. Kenny on the phone that the temperature was 51 degrees. Anyway, it felt good to be out on the bass grounds again. Looking forward to getting back out there next week. Hopefully, I'll have a better report. Happy Easter. Thx., Capt. Scott, Prowler5.

PROWLER5 - SAT. MARCH 26th - OUT ON THE FIRST BASS TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I just got a call from the boys. They are on their way to the bass grounds on our first trip of the 2016 season. 15 anglers aboard, not bad for the first trip. I'll give a follow-up report later and let you guys know what the water temperature is. Tomorrow is Easter so we won't be sailing. And we're going to give it a break during the week and light up again next Saturday, April 2nd. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - CLAMMING STRIPED BASS SATURDAY MARCH 26TH

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. With the rain today (Friday), we had four customers and Capt. Howie, so we decided to push off our first trip until tomorrow, Saturday, March 26th. We will definitely be sailing. We have people coming down. Ritchie from the Sea Hunter and Kenny will be working deck tomorrow. See you in the a.m. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - CLAMMING STRIPED BASS STARTING MARCH 25TH

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Good news. We're going to start clamming for striped bass every day beginning on Good Friday, March 25th. We're probably be fishing up in the back, up around Keyport and Keansburg flats...in that area. We'll add 3:30 to 9:00 trips for Saturdays and Sundays probably around the third week of April. Thx., Capt. Glenn, Capt. Jimmy and me are looking forward to seeing you at the dock this 2016 season. P.S. If you are looking to charter for this year definitely call Capt. Jimmy with his brand new Bingo. It's an awesome charter boat. 732-948-7735.

PROWLER5 - WEATHER LOOKS GREAT FOR BOTH TRIPS THIS WEEKEND

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. The weather looks great for the weekend and we'll be shaping up both trips (7:30 to 2:30 and 3:30 to 9:00) this Saturday and Sunday. Looking forward to having you aboard. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., OCT. 25th REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. The Prowler was out on both trips yesterday. Our morning bottom fishing trip was not as good as it has been the past few trips. However we had big ground swell yesterday and the day before that definitely didn't help things but we did get some nice Big Porgies, Sea Bass and a Blackfish that took the pool. Now for last night. We headed back to where we had the excellent fishing the night before only to find scattered life. We found some readings and worked the jigs. We ended our jigging right before dark with 4 nice keepers and about a dozen shorts. We then switched over to eels and got set up on our first drift. Five minutes into our first drift the wind came up with gusts over 30 out of the north and we were forced to call our night a little early and head for home. All the fish we have caught the last two nights were all nice clean new ocean fish. A good sign that this fall Striper season is just beginning. We are sailing everyday 7:30-2:30 for Porgies, Sea Bass and Blackfish. Clams are supplied and we have crabs. We also sail every Saturday and Sunday 3:30-9:00 Jigging and Eeling for Striped Bass. We look forward to seeing you. Thx., Capt. Scott .

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I just got off the phone with Capt. Glenn and I have great news for our first 3:30 to 9:00 trip. Capt. Glenn took a little bit of a ride and found the big bass right away around 4:00 p.m. and they had a beat down on them. Great action, limits, big fish, several 36 to 37 inches. A totally awesome afternoon for the 15 customers aboard the Prowler5. P.S. Next bass trip tomorrow, Sun. Oct. 25th 3:30 - 9:00. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., OCT. 24th BOTTOM REPORT AND 3:30 TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Capt. Glenn said there was a big ground swell out today. He had to work extra hard to put fish in the buckets and coolers. They had a northeast breeze also. Conditions are much more favorable for tomorrow. Also, we are sailing our first striped bass eeling trip this afternoon at 3:30 There were 9 - 10 customers aboard so I'll give a follow up report on that trip tomorrow morning. We have people coming down for both trips tomorrow (Sun.) So come on out and enjoy the day. Thx., Capt. Scott

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We were out on our 3:30 wreck trip last night with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli. We had good conditions, good fishing and a good group of people. Capt. Jimmy put us on the fish right from the start. We got a nice 6 pound Purple Hake that took the pool. Nice to see a rare species with such nice colors. We had a couple cod mixed in with the ling as well. High hook was 20-25 ling. Our next wreck trip will be next Sunday sailing at 3:30pm. We do ask that since its the summertime bring a cooler with a bag of ice for your catch. The difference between fish that have been on ice and fish that have not is huge when it comes to the quality of the fish. If you wouldnt leave a steak outside in the sun for 4 hours and then eat it why would you want to do that with your freshly caught fish. Thx., Capt. Scott.

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Good news. It's going to be a beautiful night out on the ocean for the tonight's wreck trip with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli.

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I'm sure glad I came down and shaped up this morning. We ended up with 31 customers. We're fishing out on the fluke grounds in front of the Navy pier and it's extremely nice right now. Maybe a slight calm before the storm. 8 or 9 shorts on the first drift with one keeper. I will do a follow-up report later. FOLLOW-UP REPORT: Well gang, we're the last ones out here on the fluke grounds. Other than Capt. Tom of the Atlantic Star that just arrived. Wind is starting to pick up strong out of the east now. We were forced to grind the whole day out in our bay. The fluke fishing was like a keeper a drift with a couple of drifts with none and the best drift was two keepers. With around 50-60 shorts for the day. Basically it sucked. I'll be down in the morning having my coffee to see if there's anyone around. Straight up I'd wait until Monday which is going to be a nice day. Thx., Capt. Scott P.S. As a lot of you know I canceled tomorrow's wreck trip 3:30 to 9:00 with the bad conditions for Sun. afternoon. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 -FLUKE REPORT AND WRECK TRIP CANCELED JUNE 28TH WEATHER

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. The forecast is changed so we'll be able to get the fluke trip in tomorrow (Sat.) morning. 7:30 to 2:30 trip only. But, it's a no-go on the night trip because of the rain and wind. I made up mind that I need to cancel the first wreck trip Sun. Even through I had a bunch of people ready to go on this trip, it's not about the money - it's about catching the fish and we would have horrible conditions on Sun. night if we did try. So, I emailed the guys and alot of them said they'll be back for next Sun.'s wreck trip. Anyway, that's just me. I like to be straight up and tell it like it is. Thx., Capt. Scott. Me, Alex and Brian and BIG BLUE will see you in the a.m.

PROWLER5 -JUNE 19th - FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Today we got a 9 pound doormat at the navy pier. Caught by Robert Torstrup from Iselin, NJ. What a beauty!! Back to using radio silence and the speed of the Prowler. Did 23 knots on the way out today. I'm going to start using this speed every day like I used to, like Pearl Harbor they have awoken a sleeping giant. See you in the morning. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 -JUNE 18th - WEATHER UPDATE AND JUNE 28 SPECIAL WRECK SUNDAYS 3:30 TO 9:00 FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We didn't sail today. There weren't a lot of customers down at the Harbor with the rain. We only had 3 show up. Too bad, I would have went out with five. The weather looks good for tomorrow, Friday and it looks outstanding for Sat. But, for Sun. Father's Day the forecast is for heavy rain and nasty conditions. So, it's not looking good for Sunday's trips. I added Fri. along with the Sat. for fluke trips 3:30 to 9:00 but not until June 26th. And we are definitely sailing this Saturday's 3:30 trip. Anyway, I'm looking forward to starting my special wreck trips. Starting June 28th every Sunday for the rest of the year for porgies, sea bass and ling. This is what the Prowler5 does best.... bottom fish. It's our speciality. We're going to start lighting it up on Sunday afternoons. We'll fish close at the one can for the porgies when they are there or in between the channels for the porgies and sea bass or we'll fish scotland for the ling and whereever we have to go. Even if we have to go offshore to the mudhole. The Prowler5 has the power and the speed and I'm going to start using that power on these Sunday 3:30 trips. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli will be running all of these trips. And, if he can't I'll be chomping at the bits to fill in for him. We'll be spreading two anchors on all the wrecks. I'm really going to start pushing these trips. I'm going to put a bigger add in the Asbury Park Press starting next week. And, I'm even going to start advertising in the Fishermen Magazine. So all of you Prowler customers and others come down on these special Sunday trips because we'd love to have your business. P.S. You can still charter the Prowler5 for $1500 but only on Mon., Tues., Wed. or Thurs. 3:30 to 9:00. Thx., Capt. Scott. Me, the crew and Capt. Jimmy Rivelli look forward to seeing you.

PROWLER5 -JUNE 17th - FLUKE REPORT

PROWLER5 -JUNE 16th - FLUKE REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out Sunday, daytime fluking. Had a pretty nice crowd aboard. We had pretty decent fluking, a lot of short action. I didn't get a good drift in the morning like I did the morning before, but all in all a pretty decent day. Sorry, I had some nice pictures from Sunday's trip that I sent out into outer space!!!! But, we did get our biggest fluke of the season the day before (Sat.) it was an 8-1/2 lber caught by Matt Lubowiecki from Elmwood Park. I didn't bother to light up the last two days with this crappy weather, there was junk around for customers the last two days. Tomorrow, Wed., June 17th looks great so come on down we'll be sailing. P.S. I've been getting a lot of calls and emails about sailing the fireworks trip on July 4th. The answer is NO. I'll be doing a special fluke and porgies trip sailing 3:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on July 4th. I'll be running the trip myself. Hopefully the porgies come in to our area close to our dock like they did last summer. Thx., Capt. Scott

Our pool winner for today was Edward Fernandez from Passaic, NJ with a nice 18 pound beauty. It was also another day of firsts with Lisa Debord coming all the way from Witchita, KS to catch her first Striper even though it was a short and was released she still did a great job.

Just a handfull of keepers yesterday, a slow day. Tomorrow the forecast is for thunder showers so we won't be lighting up until Thurs. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - JUNE 1st, FLUKE AND 3:30 REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. It was a really nice beautiful day for fluke out on the water today. I wish the fishing could have been better for the nice day. We did boat some nice fish and had a very good drift all day without using the engines. Today's pool winner was Ira Whitenight of Hillsborough, NJ. As far as last night's 3:30 trip, we had one nice keeper striped bass and a pick on the blues. I strictly fished with fresh clams last night. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT. MAY 31st FLUKE

Hey guys, Rob here. Today was our first Fluke trip of the season and it was a success! Capt. Scott put us on a consistent Fluke bite all day today even with the hard North wind. We picked some keepers and a bunch of close ones all day today. The last hour of the trip was the best with the wind laying down for us we caught a bunch of keepers from 1:30 -2:30 . Our pool winner today was Leonardo Loaiza from Lake Hiawatha, NJ with a nice Fluke. As usual we will be lit up Before 5:30 AM tomorrow and sailing at 7:30 AM. Come on down and get in on the action. Tomorrow looks to be a beautiful day to be on the water!

PROWLER5 - SAT. MAY 31st

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We'll start fluking every day starting tomorrow, Sat. May 31st. I was out today with a light crowd. Only one bass and a handful of blues. Although the bass fishing is better on the 3:30 to 9:00 trips now. I have mackerel and spearing for bait for the fluke trips. Rob and Brian have their own squid available for a fee. Anyway, it was a beautiful day out on the water today. I'll see you tomorrow for both trips. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - UPDATE, MAY 28th

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I forgot to give a follow up report on yesterday's fising. But, we ended up with the one keeper bass and about 15-18 bluefish. There's a ton of blues out but I didn't try for them yesterday, I was trying for the bass. Today, I had a light crowd and decided to send them to Robbo on the SeaHunter. Some of the guys are not lighting up tomorrow with the strong NE winds forecasted. So, I think we won't be lighting up tomorrow either. But the good news is that she is going to blow east for the next couple of days, so there should be some nice bass moving out of the Hudson and the rivers. So it looks like Fri., Sat., Sun. and Mon. all look good. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - MON., MAY 26th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Capt. Jimmy reported it was very slow fishing yesterday for the bass in the daytime. But, on the 3:30 trip he landed keepers and shorts. I have the boat out today and we have one big bass in the boat and about 12-15 blues in the boat. I'll give a follow-up report later. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 25th

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Bass fishing has been hit and miss of late. One day we catch them and the next day we don't. Yesterday's trip, I took a far ride all the way up into the back into seven feet of water. Read a lot of bass, just couldn't get them to bite yesterday. There are still a lot of bass to come out of the rivers too. Not a lot of anglers down last night for the 3:30 trip. Only sailed with 11. Me, Maggie, Rob and Brian will see you tomorrow at 5:30 a.m. to get back at it. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 23rd

PROWLER5 - THURS., MAY 22nd, UPDATE, RAIN

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I shaped up in the rain this morning. Only had 6 or 7 guys on the Prowler today so I sent them to Capt. Kevin of the Dorothy B. Also, I know tomorrow is opening day for fluke and a lot of the guys will be switching over to fluke. But not us, we will continue to sail for striped bass. Me, Capt. Jimmy, Rob, Brian and Alex look forward to seeing you this upcoming holiday weekend. P.S. Welcome back Capt. Ron Friday, May 30th. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - WED., MAY 21st, STRIPED BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We boated a handfull of nice bass today with some shorts and some big blues. Pool winner was a nice fish at 24 lbs. caught by Rodelle Mammaro from Eastern PA. By the way, Sunday's pool winner was Devon Zuller from Manhattan, NY with a 23lber. Me and Rob will be lighting up in the morning at 5:30. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - TUES., MAY 20th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Beautiful day out on the water. One short bass immediately then I had to move the boat four or five drops. Finally, have some good bluefish action but slow on the bass, just the one short bass. It's certainly not like Sunday. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 18th, GREAT DAY KEEPER BASS/BIG BLUES

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. All I can say is what a difference a day makes. As I posted yesterday - it was a very slow day for us fishing. Looked hard for readings yesterday, just couldn't find what I was looking for. Well today was the opposite. I found a very good shot of readings, hard off the bottom of big bass and blues. We had a nice crowd of anglers aboard the Prowler5 today. We caught plenty of nice big bass with limits and plenty of big blues. It sure was a great action day. And, it was nice to see the ladies and the kids catch them too. Last night's 3:30 turned out to be a beautiful night also. I'll get pool winner names later. Capt. Jimmy has some regulars at the dock today and is ready to go out on today's 3:30 trip. We'll be at the helm tomorrow morning. P.S. I'd like to give kudos to my man, Rob Hrbk, for doing doubles Sat. and Sun. as one of our deckhands had a wedding to attend this weekend. He did a fine job last night with Joe from SeaStreak and today with Mike. Great job guys. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 17th, 7:30 and 3:30 REPORTS

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out on both trips today. The morning trip we had 3 keeper bass and 12 shorts. We fished in the same area where I caught them on Thursday's trip, but couldn't get things going, a lot of boat traffic back there. As far as today's 3:30 trip. We are fishing in a different location. We have 10 big bass in the boat and plenty of big blues being caught tonight. Anywhere from 7 to 12 lbs. Me and Rob will see you in the morning at 5:30. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli will be at the helm for tomorrow's (Sun.)3:30 trip as well as Monday's 7:30 trip and Friday's 7:30 trip. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - THURS., MAY 15th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Me and Devin had the Prowler5 out today with a light crowd of 13 anglers. We had some nice bass in the boat with some limits up to 22-23 lbs., into double digits keeper ratio with good short action. The bite was on the outgoing tide. Today's pool winner was Ken Steinberg of NYC with a 22lber. P.S. Bring the raincoats tomorrow, we'll be lighting up at 5:30. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - WED., MAY 14th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We were off yesteray, not a lot of people around. I have two nice keeper bass on the boat and had some decent short action but then it died. Fishing NY, going to go back to Jersey and finish up on the flats. Today's pool winner was Art Lemise of North Arlington, NJ with an 18lber. Tomorrow looks good for fishing, but Friday the forecast is for heavy rain. Thx., Capt.

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 11th, NICE START TO THE BASS DAY, MOTHER'S DAY

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I'm out on the bass grounds today with Brian and Rob. We're fishing far up into the back again. We've already boated some nice big bass on the outgoing tide. Six or seven keepers up to 22 lbs. A couple of the ladies landed some nice keepers. It's a drop dead gorgeous day out here and we're fishing with fresh bunker and fresh clams. I see some trolling boats hooking up too so it's a good sign. It turned out to be a very good day bass fishing. Ended the day with 13-14 keepers and around 15 short. I'll post pool winner this afternoon around 2:30. We'll be lighting up 5:30 tomorrow morning with Capt. Jimmy, Rob and Brian. P.S. Remember, no one is sailing at 3:30 this afternoon.

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 10th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well there weren't many people down at the Harbor today for a beautiful Sat. We had 9 anglers aboard the Prowler5 today and ventured way in the back where we finished up yesterday. Fished with fresh bunkers all day. Same report as yesterday basically, had four keepers and a couple of shorts on both tides. Pool winner was 25 lbs. caught by Craig Trapanese of Spara, NJ and Josh Hartoff of Bridgewater, NJ landed a nice keeper. Read fish pretty good, just couldn't get them to bite the way I wanted to today. Anyway, me, Rob and Brian will see you in the A.M. at 5:30. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 9th, BASS REPORT, FOG

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We started out in the flats, one keeper and a couple of shorts. I left that area and went to NY with some fresh bunker and we managed to put some nice bass in the boat at the end of the day. Today's pool winner was Mike Ducey of Easton, PA with a 20lber. Emmett Kennedy (little man) from Kintnersville, PA with a 15 lber. See you in the morning. P.S. Remember we're not sailing this Sunday's 3:30 to 9:00 trip.

PROWLER5 - WED., MAY 7th, MUCH BETTER DAY THAN YESTERDAY, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We had a pretty good bite today for about four hours, and ended the day with 8 keepers and around 50 shorts. Today's pool winner was Joe Palach of Wallington, NJ with a 15 lber. We will be lighting up tomorrow so we'll see you in the A.M. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - TUES., MAY 6th, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well all I can say is that fishing sucked today. Went all over but it just sucked. Hopefully, tomorrow will be different. P.S. We're happy to announce we'll be teaming up with Capt. Jimmy Rivelli of the Charter Boat Bingo this year. Jimmy will be joining me running the Prowler5. He'll be running this coming Saturday's 3:30 trip as well as Monday and Wednesday's trips 7:30 - 2:30. P.S. We will not be shaping up this Sunday's 3:30 - 9:00 trip. That's Mother's Day and people never really come down that night. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN., MAY 4th, SLOW START TO THE DAY, WINDY

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We've boated one keeper bass so far and released two or three shorts. Wind came on strong. And it's wind against tide so that isn't going to help matters. Rob and Brian will see you in the A.M. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT., MAY 3rd, STRIPED BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Same as last week. After the great fishing we had on Friday we had a ton of boat traffic today - a typical Saturday. Seemed like there were 200 boats from all over. Anyway, that being said, we managed to put 10-11 nice keepers in the boat with a 21lber caught by Jason Corveleyn of S. Plainfield, NJ. We'll be back at it tomorrow, Sunday. See you in the a.m. at 5:30. P.S. Sunday night's 3:30 - 9:00 trip is looking wicked with NW 25-30 with wind against tide. So I would strongly suggest not to come down tomorrow afternoon. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - FRI., MAY 2nd, ANOTHER FRI. BEATDOWN ON THE STRIPED BASS

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I'm out on the Prowler5 today and it's another very productive Fri. for me. We already have plenty of anglers with limits, up to 22 lbs. and great action. The good news is I stopped short and found a new batch of fish. I guess the east wind from the last three days did us some justice. Rob and Brian have been very busy with the nets today. Sailing every day 7:30 - 2:30; plus 3:30-9:00 on Sat. and Sun. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SCHEDULE CHANGE TO 3:30 TRIPS (FRIDAYS)

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I've decided for now to just do 3:30-9:00-9:30 trips on Saturdays and Sundays. I'll add Friday 3:30 trips later down the road. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - MON., APRIL 28th, SLOW BASS FISHING

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I'm on the boat today after being off yesterday (Sunday). It's a beautiful day but I only have two short bass in the boat so far at 10:00. Weather looks like it's going to be bad for the next several days so we won't be lighting up. It's kind of good in a way so that we can get off this moon and have the easterly wind bring in some more striped bass. So that's the 10:00 report. But ended the day with just two keepers and 7-8 shorts today. Today's pool winner was Joe Cejniglia of Redding, PA with a 20lber. It was a slow day for the party boat Captains today. As I posted earlier, when we get off the moon and with the east wind it will definitely put some more bass into our area. Realistically the next good day to fish will be Friday, May 2nd. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - APRIL 27th, DAY BASS REPORT AND 3:30 TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I was off today but I did speak with Brian at 6:30 tonight. He said it was slow fishing in the daytime for stripers. Although he said the 3:30 trip they were banging away - keepers and shorts. Tomorrow, Monday, the 28th, looks great weatherwise but then the weather is looking lousy for Tues., Wed. and Thurs. with east wind and rain. So tomorrow is definitely the day you want to come down and get some bass fishing in. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - APRIL 26th, STRIPED BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well we certainly didn't have the great fishing that we had yesterday. Although, myself, Donnie, Rob and Brian worked very hard for our customers today to put fish in the boat. We made 3 or 4 drops today and we had a pretty good bite going for about 30-40 minutes with keepers and shorts and then wouldn't you know it - we lost the tide. There were a lot of boats out on the grounds today and I did see a lot of party and charter boats moving around. We ended the day with around 13 or 14 keepers and dropped several fish that we had on and probably released 30 short striped bass. I saw some regulars in the back doing pretty well, Kevin and Robin and I saw regular Jason land some real nice stripers. Mark Hrab of Byram, NJ was today's pool winner with a 22lber. It was a nice day out on the water for sure. Capt. Robbie is going out on the second trip with the Prowler5 on the 3:30 - 9:00 trip. Hopefully he can find the fish that I had going when I lost the tide. We have people coming for both trips tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you Sunday. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - APRIL 25nd, BASS BEATDOWN

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. What a great day to be a striped bass Captain. Got lucky and found a nice stack of readings this morning. Anchored on them and started beating on them pretty good. Action has slowed down a little bit right now at 11:40 - but still picking. We're up to 30 keepers and 20 something shorts released. Not too bad. A huge improvement. We are shaping up every day 7:30 - 2:30 plus Fri., Sat. and Sun. afternoons 3:30 - 9:00 trips. Come on down. Love to have you. P.S. I know that there is one 3/4 day boat that is chartered tomorrow in the daytime and there's another 3/4 day boat that's not there yet. That being said, I expect there to be some bass people around the Harbor tomorrow. So, Rob, Brian, Donnie and myself will see you at 5:30 in the a.m. It's all about the service. P.S. I added a lot of new pictures to the prowler5.com website. FOLLOW-UP REPORT: Hey gang, we ended the day with around 40 keepers today. It was a good day for sure. Don't forget about our Fri., Sat. and Sun. 3:30 - 9:00 trips. Capt. Robbie is going this afternoon - not with a lot of people but the Prowler5 aims to please. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - APRIL 22nd, STRIPE BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Early report - Me, Rob and Brian have the Prowler5 out on the bass grounds today way up into the shallows. It's a beautiful day although we haven't caught any fish yet. We're on a tide change - we're just starting to get the incoming tide now. Also, I just listened to the marine forecast and they are calling for gale force winds 25-35 for Wed. into Thurs. So that would be a no go for those two days. But we will be back out on the grounds for Friday's 7:30 - 2:30 trip. Also, I have guys coming down for Saturday's 3:30-9:00 trip. So we'll be out that night as well and the weather looks decent for the weekend. FOLLOW-UP REPORT - We did get a bite on the other tide, but I had to move from my first drop. Went a little further west on some readings and we finished the day with 7-8 keepers plus short action for 11 anglers today. Today's pool winner was Alex Rivera o fN. Plainfield, NJ with a 22lber. Everyone went home with some fish today. It was a nice day. I even had the mascot Maggie out for her first trip of the year. We'll see you Fri. morning 5:30 a.m. sharp. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - APRIL 21st, UPDATE

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Good morning. Brian called and said there were not a lot of people down at Atlantic Highlands Harbor this morning. He said the Hunter sailed with around 12 and Dorothy B with around 8 or 9 and Tommy on the Star sailed half-day. Anyway, that being said, it looks like a good day to bass fish tomorrow, Tues. 4/22. But, Wed. is a no go. It's going to be too windy of a day blowing 30 out of the NW. Thursday's forecast is for wind too. But I'll keep you posted. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - EASTER SUN. APRIL 20TH, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We have about 4 or 5 keepers on the boat and about 8 or 9 shorts and dropped several fish. Fishing was much better yesterday. Maybe because we have SE wind today. Not a lot of boats out today from Atlantic Highlands Harbor. Just the Prowler and the two half day boats. Anyway, that's the 12:30 report. We're lighting up everyday 7:30 to 2:30 plus Saturday afternoons 3:30 - 9:00. Thx. Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAT. APRIL 19TH GOOD START TO THE BASS DAY - KEEPERS

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We already have three nice keeper bass. That's a big improvement from the last few days. They have a fair amount of people on the boat - about 18 customers. It's a finally a beautiful day out on the water and the fish are being boated on fresh clams that we got yesterday. I'll give a followup report later this afternoon. P.S. Sailing everyday (including Easter Sunday) 7:30 to 2:30. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAILING EASTER SUNDAY APRIL 20TH

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Good news we got 8 bags of fresh clams and some of the half day boats out today had two and three keepers and one of the charter boats had four keepers today. Weather looks great for tomorrow. Crew will be waiting for you at 5:30, Capt. Robbie, Rob and Brian.

PROWLER5 - UPDATE - WED., APRIL 16TH

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. With all the cold temperatures this certainly is not going to help matters for fishing. This, Friday (Good Friday) April 18th is not looking good right now. Forecast is for 15-25 east plus none of the clams boats have been able to get fresh clams with all this east wind. Plus the water is very muddy and rough. I hate to be so negative, but I'm trying to honest with everyone. I think it will take another week for things to get right. But, if anything changes I'll let you know. I think they are calling for a little warmer temps for Sat. and Sun. so we'll see. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SAILING EASTER SUNDAY

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Just wanted to let you know that the Prowler5 will be sailing Easter Sunday 7:30 - 2:30. We have some regulars coming down so we will definitely be sailing. Me, Rob and Brian will be lighting up at 5:30.

PROWLER5 - SUN. APRIL 13TH, STRIPED BASS REPORT - UPDATE

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here just posted on facebook that they landed their first striped bass of the season. Though, it looks like a short in the picture. So we'll see what happens for the rest of today. By the way, we won't be shaping again until the end of the week. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - SUN. APRIL 13TH, STRIPED BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Brian called and said that they are out on the bass grounds again today with Capt. Robbie and Devin. It's a beautiful day out on the water. I think he said it's just the Prowler and the Sea Hunter out today (I'm not sure). Yesterday's trip there were no bass caught. Hopefully the water will warm up. I'll give a follow up report later when they come in. Thx., Capt. Scott.

PROWLER5 - SAT. APRIL 12TH, 1ST BASS TRIP

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Brian called and said the boys are on their way out to the bass grounds. Heading all the way up in the back into the flats. I'll give a follow-up report later this afternoon. Hopefully Capt. Robbie can find a few bass back there. Things should pick up soon with the nice warmer weather we'll be getting. Looks good for tomorrow, Sun. and Mon. is going to be 75 degrees. Tues. rain, Wed. N wind - not looking good. So Sun. and Mon. look like the days to come out and get on the water if you want to do some striped bass fishing. On behalf of my crew, Rob, Brian and Devin we look forward to seeing you down at the dock now that we're sailing. P.S. A little too early to do the 3:30 trips right now. When we get some warmer weather - maybe next week or two. I'll keep you posted. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - APRIL 11TH, UPDATE - SAILING SAT. SUN. AND MON.

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. My man Richie down the Harbor told me still no change. There hasn't been a lot of people around and still no fish being caught. Anyway, that's an honest report - no BS. Weekend is supposed to be super weatherwise so will be shaping up on Sat., Sun. and Mon. We have CG on Wed. Thx., Capt. Scott .

PROWLER5 - APRIL 6TH, BASS REPORT

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Like I posted on my last report, I'm planning on going for striped bass on Sat. April 12th. Although the bass boats that went out yesterday had nothing good to report. We'll see what happens April 12th, hope I don't have to go offshore and fish for something else. I just hate to go out and fish for something that's not here yet. I'm chomping at the bit to go out and fish. I'll see what the week brings and keep you posted. Thx, Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - UPDATE APRIL 4TH

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We're going to start clamming for stripped bass 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day starting April 12th. We'll probably start the 3:30 to 9:00 trips the third week of April. The fare for the bass trip is $65 for full; $40 for juniors and rods are $5, if needed. P.S. There will no longer be $5 coupons available this upcoming season. Sorry about that, but there are a lot of expenses in this industry. On behalf of myself and my crew we look forward to seeing you soon and having a great fishing year. Thanks, Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - TOG REPORT

Hey gang, togging was ok yesterday (Mon.) had some limits. Fishing was the best up in the bow. No one went fising today with the rain. We'll be lighting up tomorrow morning. Come on down. Heated handrails, crabs supplied for bait.

PROWLER5 - FRI., - BIG TOG, NICE BOUNCE BACK - SAILING SUNDAY

Hey gang. Only six anglers showed up to go fishing on the Prowler5 today. We fished 17 fathoms and I do believe everybody got their limits today on big tog, plus some nice big ling. We had a lot of nice big togs caught Friday.

PROWLER5 - SUN.

Hey gang. Fishing was horrible yesterday. The water temperature dropped after the storm. Had one keeper blackfish and a couple of ling. Hopefully, it will bounce back. I think that was the concensus of all of the boats yesterday. Tough day.

PROWLER5 - WED. TOG REPORT

Hey gang. Fished 17 fathoms. Carlos Leroy caught a 15 lb. cod and won today's pool. Bucktail Bob and a few others had their limit. In NJ the limit is now four. Heated handrails, heated cabin, green crabs and white leggers.
