12/11/2016 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Tog trip on Sunday. On board he had Joe, Stephen, Ed, John, Mark & Al. Running up to north Paul anchored on a few rock piles but conditions were terrible. No wind, Boat cartwheeling all over the place. The difficult fishing was compounded by the fact we had 3 Newbies on board for their first Blackfish trip. The boys gave it their best shot but came up short finishing the day with 7 Keepers and a ton of Shorts that were released. This was our last Charter of the season. The crew of the Bounty Hunter would like to Thank everyone that fished with us in 2016 and Wish everyone A very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Be Back at it in April.
12/10/2016 Sailed today with the Bill Zuchero charter. Filling out the crew were Matt, Ron, Walt, Mike & Cody. Paul ran up to the rough bottom and set up on a few piles. It was a slow bite and the guys had to work hard for every fish. Lot's of shorts with the occasional keeper. Later in the morning when the south wind came on the bite was over for us. After a tough day the guys managed to go home with half a limit catch of 18 Keepers. Tough day with a good crew.
12/08/2016 The Enzo Padovani charter was on board today. Along with Enzo were Sean, Brian, Delbert & Bo. Getting to the grounds early we could see that yesterday's weather scattered the Bass and the shallow inshore areas were devoid of life. We searched over an hour and came up empty. Moving off into deeper water the bait reads improved and we finally got on some Bass. Trolling Shad rigs was the way to go today. The Shads saved what could have been a disaster. We went 7 for 8 on the Bass today finishing with 5 Bonus fish and 2 Unders the largest measuring 39". We also captured 1 Bluefish. One short Bass was released. It was tough fishing as the wind once again came on and made for uncomfortable conditions for the charter.
12/06/2016 Today Capt. Paul had the "A-Team" on board. The team is made up with Michael, Dave, Frank, Ed, Ron & Tom. We were the first boat to arrive on the grounds this morning and found a massive top water feeding frenzy in progress. We had the entire feed to ourselves for the first hour. Casting Shads and Surface Poppers the lures caught Bass non stop. The action was so good that a couple of guys stopped fishing and started shooting I-Phone Videos. The Bite lasted until 9:30 then it was over. After it ended we went in search of the Bass and bait. After searching for a few hours without any success and the NE wind coming on the conditions slowly deteriorated. So, around Noon we decided to call it a day. The final count for the day was 57 Bass caught. A boat Limit of Bonus fish and Unders in the Box and the rest released. Another great day with the A-Team. Truly a day to remember.
12/05/2016 Paul had the Librado Popocatl charter on board today. Along with Librado were Edgar, Jovanny, Junior, Louis and Greyono. Paul got an early morning start in the rain and made his way to the Bass grounds. Paul got on some solid reads and put out the Shad Rigs. We had our first Bass on within minutes and the bite never stopped. The crew went on to Troll up 28 Bass. They boxed a boat limit of 6 Bonus Bass along with 6 Unders up to 34" and 3 Bluefish. All the other Bass were released. By 10AM The guys had enough and asked to go home. A good day with a nice crew and we got home early.
12/04/2016 Paul ran an open boat Striper trip today. On board we had John, Steve, Remo, Nick, Ken & Remo F. Paul got on some top water Bass early. Casting Shads for an hour only produced short Bass. When the Bass moved deep we put out the Mojos and Shad Rigs. Both produced Bass as the guys Trolled 17 Bass keeping 6 Bonus Bass, 3 Unders and 9 Blues. It was a nice day with another great crew.
