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.
08/13/15 Paul had the Mike Klier charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Along with Mike were his Son Kevin and Grandson Shawn. Mike lives in Florida and is in NJ visiting family but before he went home he wanted to give Fluke Bucktailing a try something that none of them did before. As has been the case before, the weather was beautiful but the Fluke were not eager to bite. Paul made several stops on good bottom but all the boys landed were short Fluke. Their Bucktailing style needs a little improvement. We left for home with 2 keeper Fluke in the box and released around 20 shorts. Mike said he may get back here for a Seabass trip. We hope so because we had a great time with him and his family. Spots are available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 24th, 25th, 26th & 28th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve a spot.
08/10/15 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had regulars Tom, Bill, Jay and Joe along with newcomer Vince. Paul cleared the Inlet and ran south into a nasty SE Swell which lasted all day. Making several stops along the way only produced a constant catch of undersized Fluke. After a few hours a we had 1 Legal size Fluke in the Box. Setting up south of the Reef the crew finally boxed 2 more nice size Fluke one at 21" the last at 24". That was it for the day. It was a tough day with a good bunch of guy's. I'm sure they all will be on future Open Boat trips. Spots are available for the last 4 August Open Boat Fluke trips, which are scheduled for Aug. 24, 25, 26 & 28. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/02/15 The Phil Narducci charter returned to the Bounty Hunter for another day of Bluefishing. Filling out Phil's crew were Frank, Rich, Haim, Rocco & Pat. Today Paul decided to run offshore to put Phil's group on the Small Blues & Mackerel. We were the first boat on the grounds and it did not take long to locate the reads. The fish were feeding on Sand Eels and an Ava 27 or 47 With 2 Teasers was the way to go. Today the Mackerel dominated the bite. When the guys called it a day at noon they had boxed 150 Mackerel and 34 Blues. We went home with an arm weary crew. The Aug. 7th Open Boat Fluke trip is now filled. 5 Spots are available on the Aug. 6th Open Boat Fluke trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/01/15 The Vince Viviani charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. We ran back to the area where we had some great fishing the day before but only found scattered reads. Once again Jigging and bait were not getting the job done so it was back to Trolling. Paul worked the area all morning but all we came up with were a couple of Blues and 1 short Bass. Coming off the full moon did not help the fishing. But we at least had the opportunity to spend the day with a crew of understanding fishermen. 5 Spots are available for the Open Boat Fluke sailing on Aug. 6th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. The Aug.7th Open Boat Fluke trip is now filled.
