05/24/2013 The Keith Taboada charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Seabass fishing. Paul took advantage of the 5 hour weather window we had before the snappy NW wind arrived and put the Bounty Hunter on 3 Snags several miles offshore. After the south winds and a drop in water temp we were surprised at how active the Seabass were. Keith and his crew picked away at each drop and when the wind finally arrived and it got a bit sporty we called it a day. The guy's finished up with 100 Seabass in the box plus 4 Ling and released several Tog. 3 Spots are still available for the OPEN BOAT Seabass trip on June 5th. We are also sailing OPEN BOAT Striper trips on June 11th, 19th & 20th. NOW IS THE TIME TO GO. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/22/2013 The Keith Stanhope charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Keith and his crew were in search of their first Striped Bass ever. We loaded to Livewell with 5o Bunker in the AM and Capt. Paul headed north into a pea soup fog. After a few bump and runs on the baits we finally got our first Bass for the crew. We stayed on the bait reads all day and the guy's went 8 for 15 on Bass up to 25 Lbs. It was a good day of fishing with a great bunch of guys. Keith is already planning their return to the Bounty Hunter in the Fall. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trip on June 5th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/21/2013 The Ken Steiner charter was on board today and what a difference a day makes. Yesterday we struggled with Blues and lack of Bass bites. Today we filled the livewell with Bunker and made our way north. We had over 10 Bites today but the Bass played hit and run with the Bunker failing to commit. The charter however did manage to put 4 Big fish in the box. The largest tipping the scale at an even 35 Lbs. It can only get better as the bigger fish move in. Spots are still available for the June 5th Open Boat Seabass trip. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/20/2013 Capt. Paul had the Eric Passanante charter on board today. Found the Bunker right outside the Inlet and had 50 pieces in the well in no time. We started the day livelining at the Rocks and the big Blues and Dogfish were on the baits quickly. We got our first Bass on and pulled the Hook after a brief battle. That was the extent of the Livelining action for us. Up on the Troll we picked thru the Blues and once again pulled the hook on a couple of Bass before Eric finally put a nice 38" Bass in the box. Spots are still available on our June 5th Open Boat Seabass trip. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/17/2013 We had the Vincent Zola charter on board today for what turned out to be our worst day of the season. We got out at 6AM and had no problem filling the Livewell with Bunker. We set up drifts on several Bunker schools between Long Branch and the Rocks without any success. Finally we lost a bait to a "Alligator" Blue and that was the high point of the morning. Heard that a few Bass were caught south of our Inlet so we made the move but it was not going to be our day. We got a great effort from Vincent and his crew but today the Bass won. Once their Spawn is over the Bass will be back and fishing will improve. Seabass season opens on May 19th. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Seabass trips on June 3, 4 & 5. E-mail or call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/16/2013 We had the Bob McColgan charter on board today and Capt. Paul ran north to give Livelining a try. We drifted the livies along the edge of the channel and had 2 Bass in the boat within the first 45 minutes. Then the Blues moved in and the bite was over for us. Trolling Spoons was not productive so finally we anchored on good bottom and cracked Clams with zero results. We agree with Capt. Ron that these fish are now on the Spawn and the fishing is going to be tough over the next several days. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trips on June 3, 4 & 5. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. Thanks, Paul
05/14/2013 The Angelo Melchiorri charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Capt. Paul headed back to the Clam Grounds looking for a repeat of the bite that he had over the past few days. However the bite never turned on. After 3 hours all we had were 2 keeper Bass and a couple of shorts. We decided to head south and put out the Trolling gear but we quickly found out the entire area from the Rocks south was run over by big Blues. The crew spent the next 2 hours fighting Blues up to 15 lbs. It was not the day we expected but Angelo and his crew will be back to give it another try. I am sailing Open Boat Seabass on June 3, 4 & 5. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
