06/18/2013 On Tuesday the Joe Burke charter was on board the Bounty Hunter. basically it was a replay of Monday's trip. Plenty of bait to be had and then running up north. Again several stops proved futile. A brief stop on the Rocks got us several Bluefish bites and finally our first Bass. It was only 37" long but it was a Bass. On our final stop off Asbury we had 2 run offs but no takers. Another frustrating day. 2 Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass / Fluke Combo trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/17/2013 Today we had the Ken Steiner charter on board the Bounty Hunter. The guy's had no trouble filling the bait well and then we made our way up to the spots where the Bass have been active over the past several days. We made a few stops but never got a touch. Finally on the tide change the Bass came up to feed. In a 20 minute period we had 6 Bass play bump and run with our baits along with a few run offs without any hook set. It was a frustrating day to say the least. I still have 2 openings for the July 2nd Seabass / Fluke Combo trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve a spot.
06/16/2013 The Don Beshada charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Don were his daughter 9 year old Emily along with Gerry and his son Ryan. We wanted to make our catch before the wind came on so Paul stayed on the local pieces and Don and his crew put together a nice catch of large Seabass. Little Emily caught her first Ling ever and as usual had several big Knuckleheads. With the wind building we called it a day early but we had 67 Seabass and 5 Ling in the Box. We fell 13 fish short of a limit catch but Emily said we will make it up on her next trip in a few weeks. As usual it was fun fishing with Don and his crew.
06/15/2013 The Mike Montefusco charter was on board today. Mike and his crew were new to Livelining for Bass and we had a bit of a learning curve to go thru. Snagging Bunker was tough. There were not a lot of Bunker around but Mike's crew managed to put 20 pieces in the Well. After 2 hours of drifting on reads the box was empty. An hour of Trolling Spoons did nothing for us. Finally Paul got on some reads at the tide change and we got our first Bass, a nice 32 Pounder. A bait donation from Capt Derek (Fisher Price) kept us in the game and the guy's put 2 more Bass in the boat another at 32 Lbs. and 1 at 35 Lbs. while missing another 3. We were happy with a 3 for 6 avarage. It could have been worse. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass / Fluke Combo trips on July 2, 4 & 5. Call today to reserve your spot.
06/12/2013 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat Seabass charter today. On board we had regulars Don, Walt, Bud, Irene, John & Ed. The brisk NW wind into a 5ft. SE swell made for tough fishing conditions offshore. Paul made 4 drops today and we caught good on 3. The crew toughed it out and put 103 nice size Seabass in the box along with 5 Ling. We fell short of our limit as angler participation lessened due to the ocean conditions. Overall it was a good day with a great group of people.
06/09/2013 Capt. Paul had the Kurt Atkerman charter on board today. Kurt and his crew are long time Bounty Hunter supporters and Paul was glad he could put together a killer Seabass trip for him. We had 60 big Seabass in the boat after our first 2 drops. Paul then made drops on pieces that we seldom fish and it was a nice slow pick to get the last 60 Seabass in the box. We were finished by Noon with a limit catch of 120 Quality Seabass on ice along with 6 Ling. 1 Spot is still open on the June 26th Seabass trip. Get in on the bite while it lasts. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/06/2013 The Brian McFadden charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. The trip was originally scheduled for Striped Bass but with the Seabass bite turning on the guy's decided to go for Seabass and it was a good move. Paul worked several drops and again some showed some life but others were loaded with big Seabass. Brian and his crew wasted no time putting a 100 fish limit catch of big Seabass in the box along with a few Ling. We were limited out by 11:30AM and were on our way home with 5 happy guys. All scheduled Open Boat trips are now filled. Future dates will be posted shortly. If you like fishing NOW IS THE TIME TO GO. Call 732-323-8700 and book your day!
