I don't know of one. I occasionally anchor in Horseshoe Cove for an overnight after coming down from around the Tappan Zee.

Well at least a few replied. I dock my boat on the Navasink anyone else in the general area? Perhaps we can start something, it is always nice to have a few boats around to go fishing with.

I'm up in Morristown but launch out of Highlands Municipal launch 5-6 times each summer to fish Sandy Hook area...usually run up to Barnacle Bills for lunch and a few cold ones if sun gets too hot...

I drop in at Keyport but would be happy to drop in at Atlantic Highlands for some kind of Rendevous.

Looks like we may have the start of a Whaler fishing club. Lets see how many more NJ locals reply and see if we can't get something going.

Barnegat Bay, Bayville/Forked River area.

I'm up for getting together to fish. Looking to get offshore- up to 30 miles out or so. If anyone wants to "buddy up" shoot me an email.

Regularly fish the coast out of Barnegat Inlet for fluke, stripers, etc.

A run up to Sandy Hook would be fun too!

I'll go anywhere for fish : )

I usually drop my old Eastport in the Navasink in Redbank but I sometimes will trailer it down to Barnaget bay. During the summer you may find me with a bunch of kids pulling a tube on the Navasink. I see many Boston Whalers on the water be it the Navasink, out by Sandy Hook or out on Barnaget Bay. Perhaps some of us have crossed paths.

Just a thought for NJ BW trailer boaters...

If you're like me, you probably launch out of 1-2 ramps 99% of the time. I go out of Atlantic Highlands (99%) or occassionally Ocean City public ramp (at the airport) (1%)...

I'd like a little diversity...I'd suggest a couple of rondeouzs, where someone with local knowledge and coordinate or at least direct participants to good and available public ramps...and local knowledge (waterways and fishing)...Any one in the Manasquan Inlet vicinity?

Sandy Hook area great place to start considering access to Bay, Ocean, Navesink & Shrewsbury rivers...not to mention coves on Bay side of the hook for a swim and plenty of spots within a few miles to run for some food and cold beers...

I know its tough to plan and get weather to cooperate, but there's safety in numbers...might be a good oppty to get a few boats together to run a little farther out than usual in search of fish.

Depending on how big your boat is, Chris's Marina in Red Bank has a ramp that he charges $15.00 for. The only problem is he is located at the top of the Navisink and it gets shallow if you use it during low tide. But once past the Rt35 bridge it's smooth sailing. I used to dock my boat at Chris's, but hated the fact that I had to time the tide, so I moved to the Oyster Point Marina and enjoy deep water all the time. I will be out by the hook tomorrow, as long as the weather cooperates, in search of stripers. If the weather is to rough I will stay inside either the Navasink or Shrewsbury River. I will be on a 21 ft. Outrage, so if you see me stop by.

Hey guys I fished the Raritan this morning and killed the stripers, got 19! Perhaps the first annual NJ Whalers Club Striper outing can be arranged??? Perhaps the weekend of the 14th.

They are in the bay! We chummed with clams and then used a fishfinder rig with clam and reeled them in!!!

Good luck,

Where did you get them? Are they up in the bay or out closer to the hook?

I was up at Pebble Beach a few weeks a go and there were a few caught...not 19!

Okay guys this is what we did. We used our depthsounder and looked for lumps or any kind of structure, which was found north of the navy pier. We set anchor and let the boat settle then started to chum clams. We cast out our line with clam and reeled them in. The tide is important, two hours each side of slack worked. We got more bait when the tide went slack.

Hope this helps.

Yeah Guido, I did well the other day west of where you were. I had salted clams from a few weeks ago and bought fresh, I ended up with about 10 stripers (about 6-8lbs ) and lost a real nice one. The fish did not care itf the clams were fresh or salted , they hit them both.. The key is to chum .

I went out again yesterday caught more fish and bigger ones. The blues have also made their presence known.

This Sunday I plan on heading out for some more stripers. Anybody who is interested let me know perhaps we can meet up at the fishing grounds.

I drop launch my 13 ft' in Monmouth bch, and sometimes in the Barneget. Public ramp no fee in Monmouth beach, just need to watch the tide, but then again it's 13 ft. usually go crabbing in the Navesink or the Shrewsbury.

There is a Boston Whaler Owners Club in Chestertown, Maryland that's been in existance for many years. There is a rendezvous on may 28th in Chestertown and I understand it's well attended. Only the second year. The local Boston Whaler Dealer sponsors it(Chesapeake Whalertowne) I got on the website and looks like you can register for it there. Only $20 a BOAT (pack as many onboard as you can) A couple folks from Marlton, Newton registered. You might want to check it out.
