" Fluke Fishing at it's Best "

The captains of the Misty Morn are fluke fishing specialists. The many channels and cross channels in the Raritan Bay & Staten Island areas have always produced great catches of Fluke. The structure of the drop offs and holes, hold the fish. The Misty Morn keeps you in the best spots, so if the fish are biting, you will come up with plenty of fresh fluke fillets.

Our crew will offer to clean your fish on the way back home.
Winter Flounder

" Catch Big Bay Flounder "

Every season we kick-off with daily trips to the best spots in the Raritan Bay. Typically our flounder trips run right through to the opening day of Fluke season. We use fresh clams to chum up the larger bay founder. Our expert mates will show you what is working best, from the rig, bait and the fishing method.

We break fresh whole clams into pieces when we chum for flounder
Evening Bass & Weaks

" Magic Hours "

The Misty Morn sails from 5pm to 9 pm 5 days a week in the summer for a great evening of Raritan Bay fishing. The species they target are divers, and depend upon the latest reports. Fluke, Striped Bass, Weakfish and Blues, all come up over the rail. That's one of the reasons that we call it "Magic Hours". There's nothing quite like coming home with a mixed bag of local fish.

Sometimes we Jig, Sometimes we use bait, Sometimes we do both!
