11/22/2013 Capt. Paul had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Along with Matt were his regulars Sean, Mac, Gary & Mick. We arrived on the grounds and had good reads immediately. Working Jigs the guys landed 3 keeper Bass and released over 30 shorts. Going up on the troll the fishing started of slow but as we got into the tide change the Bass showed up in good numbers. We trolled another 7 Bass for a Limit catch and then went on to add 5 Bonus fish Plus 4 Blues. While on the Troll we released another 15 short Bass. We will be running Open Boat Striper trips on Dec. 2nd & 4th. If you want to catch a Bass now is the time to go. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
11/20/2013 The Steve Lopez charter was on board today. Along with Steve were his wife Barbara and friends Bob, Ouida, Meryl & Sean. We arrived on the spot at 7AM in a relatively calm ocean. Jigging again was not productive so we decided to troll. By 8:30 the wind went Northeast with gusts to 20 and suddenly the ocean was not pretty. We spent the next couple of hours Trolling in some nasty 6 footers. Suprisingly everyone held up and fished thru horrible conditions. At 11:30 it was time to head for home. The charter finished up with 9 nice Bass in the box and released another 8. Overall it was a nasty day with 6 nice people that stuck it out. It's always a pleasure to have Steve and his crew on board.
11/19/2013 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Striper trip today. On board we had Mark, Ralph, Bob, Charlie, Bill and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Killian. We made our way down to the grounds and found acres of working birds. Paul read plenty of bait but very few Bass. We started the day Jigging but the best we could do was 5 misses. The Bass were not interested in the Jigs. Switching over to Trolling proved to be more productive as the guy's slowly put together Limit catch of 12 Bass plus 3 Bonus fish. We released 8 Short Bass. Overall it was good fishing. Not hectic but good enough to give everyone a few turns on the Rods. December Open Boat Striper trips will be posted shortly.
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.
