Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor

November 20, 2017:
Big bass were the main attraction for boats sailing out of Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor. An overcast Saturday saw a lot of boats slide down the boat ramp and all came back with fish, John said. This past week was more than likely the best week of the fall despite some unstable weather conditions, he said. Blackfishing, which was overshadowed by the striped bass fishing, was also was also good, despite rough sea conditions due to the weather.
