Navesink never was as good as the Shrewsbury or Shark rivers for flounder, and they tended to bail out of there early... None of the river fisheries ever came close to Raritan Bay in my opinion , others might disagree... bob

I remember the daggers scouring the rivers and bay all winter long pulling the flounder and anything else right out of the mud ! Kind of reminds me of the fluke offshore, no ?

Behind the quay restraunt was supposed to be the hotspot.

Round shoal was the place when they had a little resurgence in the 90s. Had a boat slipped in keyport then.

shark river in a tin boat was a blast, and caught way more flounder than we should have back when it was good,
IMO only reason its not good now is the river is 95% silted in.


Did very well this time of year up until the 2 fish closure fishing keyport flats , then moving out to the cedars later in the season.


Been a decade already , thinking it could be good again, but few guys are going to spend what it costs to chum them up for 2 fish each.

I remember marine park in red bank was the best early season spot around st Patty’s day. Regulars used dog food and corn for chum at the pier. Then in mid April the parking lot at rum runner restaurant in the shrewsbury river. No joke, you had to throw the same weight as everyone....it was wall to wall over 70 yds and walk it down with the tide and usually you had a flattie by 50 yds. During slack, everyone was on quickly. 40 catch days were the norm when it wasn’t muddy. I miss those days and we did all take more than we should have back then. It seemed limitless.
