11/17/2013 The David Guthain charter was on the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Dave we had Randall, Ryan, Patrick, Pat & Gary. The excellent Striper fishing continued for us today. We started the day Trolling but once hooked up the crew worked the Ava's. We had a steady pick alternating between Jigging & Trolling and we put together a Limit catch of 12 Bass plus 4 Bonus fish by 10AM. Another dozen short Bass were released. We spent the next hour Jigging and releasing some Bass. When the dense Fog rolled in we decided to call it a day and headed for home. 2 Spots are still open for the Nov. 27th Open Boat Striper sailing. Don't miss out on this great bite. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
11/16/2013 The great Striped Bass fishing continued today for the Bill Zuchero charter. Along with Bill were his fishing buddies Walt, Chris, Ron, Matt & Jon. Capt. Paul made his way back to yesterday's spot but found very little Bass activity. A move of a few miles put us right in the middle of the feeding Bass. We Trolled a few and Jigged a few and by 11AM we had a Limit catch of 12 nice Bass in the Box along with 6 Bonus fish. The split today was just about 50/50 between Trolling and Jigging. The Bass bit just about everything we put in the water. Over a dozen short Bass were released but we did keep 4 big Blues. Another good fishing day with a group of loyal Bounty Hunter supporters. They will be back next week to pick up where they left off today. The Open Boat Bass trip on the 25th is now booked. There are still 5 spots open on the trip scheduled for the 27th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
11/15/2013 The Matt MacSherry charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Matt were his usual team of Mac, Gary, Greg & Mick. We made a short run to the area that produced for us yesterday but the Bass reads had thinned out. The guys worked the area with Ava's and we did land 4 Bass and released 3 shorts. After an hour the spot was barren without a Bass to be found. Paul worked his way along the beach and we finally got into some good life. Putting out the Trolling gear for a few hours produced another 10 Keepers along with 2 Blues and a half dozen Short Bass. It was good enough for the guys to finish the day with a Limit catch of 10 Bass, 4 Bonus fish and 2 Blues. I Will be running Open Boat Striper trips on Nov. 25th & 27th. If you want to catch some Bass Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
11/14/2013 Today we had the Joe Dittus charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Once again we got an early start and Paul was into a slow pick of Bass a few miles from the Inlet. The bite shut down after an hour and we were in the search mode for the next few hours. Paul finally found the Bass and we picked away until we had our Limit catch of 12 Bass along with 3 nice Blues. Over a dozen short Bass were released. It was not steady action as was the case yesterday but good enough to allow everyone to land a couple of Bass and go home with a bag of fillets. It was another great weather day and we spent it with a group of nice people.
11/13/2013 Today We sailed with Paul, Frank, Jim, David, Ed & Dave. Cleared the Inlet at 6AM into a much more pleasant ocean then we had yesterday. Capt. Paul ran back to the spot where we had the good bite yesterday and found the bait and Bass. Our first few fish were trolled but then it became a Jigging day. The guy's had a great day putting their 12 fish limit catch of Bass in the box plus 3 Bonus fish. Mixed in with the Bass we had our share of Blues. The guy's finished the day with 15 Bass in the box and released over 20 more. Along with the Bass they released over 20 big Blues. 75% of all our Bass were taken on Jigs.
11/12/2013 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Striper trip today. On board we had first timers to the Bounty Hunter Jenna, Chris, Jerry, Greg & Ed along with long time regular Mark. We cleared the Inlet at 6AM and sailed into a dark windy and rough ocean. With the Bass within a few miles of home we decided to tough it out for a few hours and put together a catch. Drifting was impossible and with a 30 knot wind drifting and jigging or casting Shads was out of the question. Paul put out the Trolling gear and we had Our first Bass on within a minute. In 2 hours we had a limit catch of 12 nice Bass and it was decided to leave the playing field. A tough morning with a tough crew but well worth the effort. They will remember this trip for a long time.
11/11/2013 Capt. Paul had the Ed Sobjak charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Ed were Jameson, Bruce, Kyle, Anthony & Chad. We got the usual early start and got on some good reads right after first light. The crew tried Jigging but it was obvious early that the Bass were going to be finicky about the Jigs. After an hour all we had to show for the effort was 1 Dogfish. A decision to put out the Trolling gear proved to be the right move as the Bass were all over the Rigs. The 6 first time customers enjoyed a 3 hour bite which enabled them to box their limit catch of 12 Bass plus 5 Bonus fish along with 6 big Blues. We spent the last 2 hours in the release mode. We finished the day with well over 25 Bass. Check the Bounty Hunter "Open Boat Charter" page for our next Open Boat Striper trips. The dates will be posted shortly.
