The Beach Haven Charter Fishing association will be starting its highly popular Junior Mates Program on Thursday, June 22. Normally the sessions are held both out in the field and at the Maritime Museum on Dock Road in Beach Haven.

However, due to a scheduling conflict, the first class will be held at The Beach Haven Marlin & Tuna Club which is located at 420 N. Pennsylvania Ave in Beach Haven. Any interested teenagers are urged to attend the session which will begin at 7pm.Questions can be answered by calling Captain John Lewis at 609-670-5980.

The fishing action for black sea bass on the inshore wrecks and reefs continues to be very good. Captain Ray Lopez of the “Miss Liane” had Rich Hamburg and his two grandchildren out for a day of bottom fishing. The group had nonstop action with over 60 feisty sea bass boated. The group took six nice fish home for dinner. Captain Ray reports he is also pleased at the fluke action thus far.

Captain Dave Kreines of the “Byte Me” has had a couple of bay fluke trips recently. Last Saturday he fished alone on a “scouting mission” that resulted in just a couple of short fish. On Monday he had Mike Delin and his father out on a half day trip and the pair boated two nice fluke of 20 and 21 inches along with a few shorts and a skate. The pair of anglers was celebrating the elder Delin’s birthday, and they are already eager to return for more action.

The offshore bite has started with some nice tuna being boated already including some bigeyes over 200-pounds. In addition, there are reports of some big mako and thresher sharks in the area.

The 2017 summer flounder season has opened in the Beach Haven area, and the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are anxious to put their anglers on these fish.

Recent reports have decent amounts of keeper fluke around with quite a few meeting the New Jersey state minimum size of 18-inches. Recent hot spots have included the ICW south of Beach Haven along with the waters of Great Bay. An added attraction for fishing in the Great Bay waters is the continued presence of feisty bluefish. Goodly numbers of 2-4 pounders can be found all over.

The striped bass bite in the ocean is not hot right now, but the fish being caught on the troll with bunker spoons and Mojos are large ones. A recent local tournament had the two top places taken with fish weighing over 50-pounds.

BHCFA Captain John Lewis reports that he has his boat the “Insatiable” back at its mooring in Beach Haven and is ready to chase stripers, blues, and fluke. Captain John adds that he has heard of some bluefin tuna up to 450-pound being landed offshore this week, and he is anxious to find some anglers who want to test themselves against these big fish. He is also looking forward to the arrival of some mako sharks.

Captain Frank Camarda of the party boat “Miss Beach Haven” is ready to sail for fluke from his berth at Centre Street in Beach Haven.
This is a great day to visit the Travel & Adventure show in Philadelphia.
Although there are still a few weeks before spring arrives at the New Jersey shore, the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association have been busy readying their boats and gear while also re-charging their own batteries.

Captain Raymond Lopez of “Miss Liane Sportfishing Charters” has been busy refurbishing the props, preforming routine engine maintenance, and upgrading the audio system on his boat. In addition, the vessel also passed the voluntary UPV inspection through the USCG. Any rods and reels in need of refurbishing have been taken care of by professionals. 

Captain Pete Doran of “Mud Duck Sportfishing” is a new member of the BHCFA. The “Mud Duck” is a 48' Garlington docked in Morrison's Marina and will be running mostly offshore trips. Besides sandblasting the bottom, Captain Peter outfitted the boat with new outriggers and refrigeration.

Captain Lindsay Fuller had his usual maintenance work done on the “June Bug” at her winter home in Manteo, NC. He plans to do some fishing there before bringing the boat north. Captain Lindsay has had his rods and reels professionally serviced along with making some improvements on the reel seats.

Captain Carl Sheppard reports the “Star Fish” is getting its “usual spring TLC.” He is planning on splashing the boat in early April with Coast Guard inspections coming shortly after. By the middle of April he expects to be fishing. The inspections include engines, lights, steering, navigation, lifesaving, medical supplies, and much more including a “man overboard” drill. 

Captain John Lewis of the “Insatiable” and his wife spent a month in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. Captain John says he did quite a bit of fishing including landing his first ever sailfish. He also had several good days of yellow tail fishing. He has several boat deliveries lined up as well as looking forward to a successful fishing season in Beach Haven.

Captains from the show have been joined at several fishing flea markets and shows by members of their Junior Mates program spreading news of the BHCFA. The junior mates will be at Booth 726 this weekend at the Atlantic City Boat Show. The teens invite all to stop by and say hello.
