Catching Our Fill Of Fluke On A Belmar Fishing Charter

Updated: Jan 5

During a late August fishing adventure aboard the Skylarker charter boat, we caught our fill of summer flounder (fluke) and black sea bass, while enjoying the boundless ocean views and plenty of fun in the sun with a group of friends.

The 70-foot fishing boat departed the Belmar Marina under a sunrise sky around 7:30 a.m. Captain Steve expertly navigated us through the Shark River Inlet into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Asbury Park, where we cast our rods baited with squid and minnows.

In addition to fluke and sea bass, my fresh catch of the day included a baby black-tip shark, a baby sea robin, and several mackerel (caught and released). In all, I reeled in two keepers, which the mate cleaned and filleted along with all everyone else's fish caught that day. After a full day sailing on the Atlantic Ocean, the captain brought us back to Belmar Marina around 2:30 in the afternoon, and everyone went home with a bag of the day’s fresh catch. I pan sauteed mine with white wine, butter and seasonings.

In addition to private fishing charters, party boats (head boats) also sail from the Belmar Marina. Whichever vessel you choose for your outing, the Belmar Beachcomber blog highly recommends a day of ocean fishing during your vacation in Belmar, New Jersey!
