08/29/2012 Paul had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Along with Matt were Gary, Mac, Tony & Marc. After clearing the Inlet we were greeted by a brisk NNE wind which made for uncomfortable conditions once beyond a mile of the shoreline. Paul ran up to the northern grounds and for the first couple of hours the crew toughed it out until the wind began to subside. For the day we had plenty of bites as the guys released over 25 shorts but the best we could do on this day was 7 keepers all of which were between 18" & 24". Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 1st & 2nd and the Open Boat midrange Tuna trips on Sept. 8th & 10th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/27/2014 After 3 weather cancellations Paul finally got in his first Offshore Open Boat Tuna trip. On board we had Ken, Eric, Jim. Jason, Tim & Scott. We arrived on the grounds at 6AM and started Trolling in a large southeasterly swell. We had our first Mahi within minutes. As the morning went on there was not much to read on the recorder as it appeared that the good body of fish that produced some great catches before the 3 days of northeast winds had moved on. We landed a couple more Mahi a few Skipjacks and that was the action for the day. There were a few mystery bites but no hook ups, so who knows???. Spots are still available for my Open Boat Seabass trips opn Sept. 1st & 2nd and the Open Boat Tuna trips scheduled for Sept. 8th, 10th & 12th

08/25/2012 Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board were Dave,Landon, Terry, Jack, Matt and Bounty Hunter regular Mike. After 3 days of NE winds it was a toss up as to where to fish. Paul decided to start off Elberon and work his way North. We had a good drift and plenty of bites but with 3 Newbies to Bucktailing plenty of misses. We had our shots but as the wind began to flop and the drift dropping to .3 Knots the catching slowed. We finished up with 11 keepers and a handful of Peewee Blues. Mike landed the 3 largest Fluke of the day they weighed in a 5Lb, 6lb and 8 Lb. We had great weather and a great crew to fish with. Spots are still Open for the Open Boat Fluke trips sailing this weekend Aug. 30th & 31st. E-Mail me or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. Also, Seabass season Opens for 6 days starting Sept. 1st. Get in on one of our Open Boat sailings scheduled for Sept. 1st, 2nd & 4th. Call today.
08/20/2014 The Nick Bechtel charter was on board today. Along with Nick were friends Jason, Evan, Kitt & Justin. Paul ran east to the area where the Blues bit well the night before but the area showed no signs of life. After an hour without a touch it was decided to make the run north to the Mud. The fishing for big Blues was good early but was slowing down as we arrived. The Blues were wire shy and fishing with 30lb. leaders produced a dozen bites but the crew only managed to land 3 big Blues and one 23" Fluke. The weather was perfect and we had a good time with a great crew. Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips have been scheduled for Sept. 8th, 10th & 12th. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/15/2014 Don Beshada returned to the Bounty Hunter for his weekly Fluke trip. Paul arrived on the Fluke grounds early and we had instant bites. The only problem being all the Fluke were short. Don could only fish till 11:30AM but we managed to box 3 keepers while releasing over 15 shorts. The 2 largest Fluke weighed in at 5 1/2 & 6 Lbs. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 21st & 25th and our Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips on Aug. 19th & 27th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/09/2014 Capt. Paul had long time Bounty Hunter customer Mike Frenzel's charter on board today. We got up to the grounds early and we had a pretty good day considering we only had 2 people Bucktailing. For the day Mike's crew released over 50 short Fluke and put a nice catch of 13 Fluke in the box. The 2 largest fish weighed in at 5 1/2 & 6 1/2 lbs. The weather and drift were perfect and we spent the day with a great crew.
08/07/2014 Don Beshada returned to the Bounty Hunter for the second time this week. Paul ran up to the northern grounds and Don who cannot get enough Fluke fishing enjoyed a good morning. With Paul joining him for a rare few hours of fishing they both put together a decent catch of Fluke up to 6 lbs. When we started for home we had 8 Fluke and 2 Seabass in the box. Over a dozen shorts were released. 2 Spots are still available for the Aug. 12th Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trip. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve a spot.
