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!
06/05/2013 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Tom, Jay, Mike, Larry & Paul all long time Bounty Hunter supporters. Paul made stops on 6 small snags offshore and we found that a couple had some life while others had no life but the couple that read good life were loaded with large Seabass. The guy's worked all day and were rewarded with a 5 man Limit of 100 quality Seabass by Noon. Along with the Seabass we also boxed 4 large Ling. 3 spots are still available for the Open Boat Striper sailing on June 19th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/04/2013 Capt. Paul had the John Bromely charter on board today. Along with John were fishing buddies Joe, Ron & Ron Jr. We cleared the Inlet at 5:30 and found the bait off Ocean Grove. The guy's filled the Livewell and we were off to the Bass grounds. We made a brief turnaround to check out some reports coming from Spring Lake but it turned out to be a false alarm. Moving back to the north and making 3 stops on good bait reads we still came up empty. The stiff North wind did not help matters. Finally at noon the wind dropped out and the ocean calmed down. Paul anchored on some rough bottom and the guy's managed to go 3 for 6 on Bass using livies. Blues were in the mix and we kept one.
