09/19/15 Capt. Paul had the David Tiegs charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Dave Were his dad Ray and brothers Brian & Mike. All 4 were first time Bucktailers and we went thru the usual morning learning curve. It did not matter as the dense Fog and lack of drift which lasted most of the day made for tough conditions. The crew landed several short Fluke a few big Bluefish along with a couple of nice size Seabass. The guys gave it a maximum effort but conditions were against us. This could be our last Fluke trip of the season as the next few days may see some high winds and a rough ocean. We still have a few open dates for Seabass and Striped Bass charters. If your thinking about getting out now is the time to call and book your day.
09/16/15 The Tyler Duesman Charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Tyler were Milton, Emma & Kevin. Paul headed offshore to the Bluefish/Mackerel grounds and set up on good reads. It did not take long to get a good bite going. The Mackerel out numbered the blues today but that did stop the crew from putting a nice catch in the box. At 12:30 they all had enough and it was decided to head for home. The weather was perfect and we spent the day with a great group of people. We will be sailing Open Boat Fluke trips on the last 2 days of the Fluke season. Friday Sept. 25th & Saturday Sept.26th. Call me at 732-323-8700 To reserve a spot.
09/12/15 The Jeff Adiletta charter was on board today. Filling out Jeff's group were Bill, Javier, Jim. Dom & Tony. Paul made the ride to the offshore grounds and set up on some good reads. The ocean conditions made for an uncomfortable drift so we anchored up and jigged. Jeff and his crew had the Blues and Mackerel on within a few minutes and enjoyed a non stop bite. When they had what they wanted they went into the release mode until they called it a day. We spent the day with a great bunch of guys who toughed it out in less than desirable conditions. Spots are available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 13th, 14th & 15th. The Fluke season closes on Sept. 26th, So call today to reserve your spot.
09/06/15 The Joe Dittus charter joined Paul for a day of Fluke fishing. Along with Joe were Mike, Shannon, Joe , Chris & Nick. Paul headed back up north where the fishing has been decent for the last few trips. We only had 2 Bucktailers on board as the remaining 4 were all new to the game. We caught the end of the tide and put 5 keepers in the box. The bite died with the tide change and all we had were a couple of shorts and the usual Seabass bites. With the change the Fluke turned on again and the crew added another 4 nice Fluke to the catch. The last hour was spent fighting a mad dog bite by the Skates and Sand Sharks. Another good weather day and we spent it with a great group. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for Sept. 8th, 9th 10th & 11th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/01/15 Paul had the John Gilroy charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Rounding out John's crew were Mike, Jeff, Pat, Mike & Sean. Today was a replay of our last trip. We had very little wind and no drift in the AM. All the good bites came later in the morning. Paul worked his way north again stopping on rough spots along the way. John's crew put a couple of keepers in the box and had the usual Seabass bites in between the short Fluke. When the wind finally came on in the late morning and the drift improved we started to see the bigger Fluke. We finished the day with 10 nice Fluke on ice and released over 20 shorts. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for Sept. 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 & 11. Fluke season will close shortly,so don't miss out on the last of the action. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/29/15 Capt. Paul had the Mike Frenzel charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Mike's crew was made up his regulars Paul, Ed, Cliff and Albert. Paul started the day local and slowly worked his way to the north. Not much action down our way as there was little to no drift. The guy's picked away at some shorts but had a tough time getting thru the "Overfished" species as the Seabass were thick, all big and a constant problem on every piece of rough bottom that we stopped on. At noon the south wind started to kick in and bigger fish started to bite. The crew put 7 nice keepers in the box Mike had a 26" fish followed by Paul's 24" Fluke. We finished with 7 in the box and over 20 shorts released. Spots are still available for our next scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept, 3rd, 5th & 6th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/14/15 Paul had the Ed Barnwell charter on board today. Ed and his friends wanted to fish for Blues so Paul headed offshore to the Bluefish grounds. Fishing was very good but the Mackerel outnumbered the Blues about 5 to 1. It did not matter as Ed's crew was looking to put a bend in the rod and have a good time. We called it a day at noon when the charter had enough action. Spots are still available for the Aug. 24th, 25th, 26th & 28th Open Boat Fluke trips. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
