    The Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor was free of ice when we spoke with Sharon for this report. She said the ramp still was iced up and not serviceable. All is well at the Harbor which survived the ice attack in early January. The harbor is taking reservations for slips for the coming season, she said.

    At the marina in Atlantic Highlands, Capt Hal Hagerman of the Sea Tiger II had planned to run some January trips, but on the first day of the New Year said it looked like he was calling it a season. "Looks like we will not be fishing anymore with the cold temps and being iced in," the skipper noted as ice at the marina came in faster than normal this season.

    "The boats are out of the water and the crew is tightening up the marina for the winter," said John Amici at the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor. John told me the boat ramp will remain open as long as there is no ice on it during the winter. The marina will start putting boats in the water for the 2018 season in March and is now taking reservations for 2018 slips.

    For boats running out of the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor it was the 70' Sea Hunter where Capt. Rob reported that his sources said that on Friday, there was a good Striper bite at Debs Inlet with keepers and shorts. Unfortunately it was the last day to fish for stripers in that area as its NY waters. Capt. Rob said the good news is that bird life was spotted offshore of the Highlands Bridge and the Shrewsbury Rocks in NJ waters. With that being said, added Capt. Rob, he will head out on Sunday and if he does well, he will fish Monday and maybe Tuesday, adding that as of now those two days sound good weather wise but he anticipates lots of wind for Wednesday and Thursday. Capt. Rob headed out on Sunday without knowing what to expect, especially after his last trip was a total bust, but armed with good intel. Capt. Rob and all on board were pleasantly surprised when they not only found stripers, they had their boat limit of keepers and slots. Hopefully, said Capt. Rob, they can find the fish again, as they plan to head out while the weather is looking favorable for the next couple of days this week. Capt. Rob said the fish were feeding on herring and bunker so the shads worked best for them, adding, "If everything works out he will get a few more trips in before the New Year, adding, time is running out get them while they are here."
