05/09/2017 Today we had an abbreviated morning trip with one of our favorite customers. Paul ran back to the spot that was holding Bass yesterday. The Bass reads were solid. but the large Blues were gone. Since our time was limited we went right to the TGT Spoons and they did not fail. The Bass were on immediately and we were on our way home within 2 1/2 hours. We finished with 5 Bass, 2 Unders and 3 Overs the largest of which checked in at 46" and topped the scale at 40 lbs. It was a short day but the fishing was good. Now lets hope it stays that way. Scheduled Open Boat Trips are listed on our Open Boat Charters page.

05/07/2017 Capt. Paul had the Russ Nelson charter on board today. Along with Russ were Jessica, Andrew, Jim, Breslyn & Ian. With no solid reports coming from our contacts up north, Paul decided to work the area from Spring Lake south to Ortley Beach. Bait reads were scarce and so were the Bass. We did manage to come across hoards of hungry Blues and they stayed with us for most of the day. The charter kept what they needed and released the rest. It was a good day with a great crew.

05/03/2017 Capt. Paul had the John Swiderski charter on board for his first charter of the 2017 season. Filling out John's group were Karl, Paul & Scott. The ride to the north was comfortable in a calm ocean. Bait readings were non existent with no signs of Striper life. Getting into the Bay we were greeted by a stiff NW wind. The water temp was down and the color was brown. Pulling MoJos we had a long day. Only several Blues which were released and what could have been a Bass was dropped after a brief fight. Looking for better times over the next several days.

12/11/2016 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Tog trip on Sunday. On board he had Joe, Stephen, Ed, John, Mark & Al. Running up to north Paul anchored on a few rock piles but conditions were terrible. No wind, Boat cartwheeling all over the place. The difficult fishing was compounded by the fact we had 3 Newbies on board for their first Blackfish trip. The boys gave it their best shot but came up short finishing the day with 7 Keepers and a ton of Shorts that were released. This was our last Charter of the season. The crew of the Bounty Hunter would like to Thank everyone that fished with us in 2016 and Wish everyone A very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Be Back at it in April.

12/10/2016 Sailed today with the Bill Zuchero charter. Filling out the crew were Matt, Ron, Walt, Mike & Cody. Paul ran up to the rough bottom and set up on a few piles. It was a slow bite and the guys had to work hard for every fish. Lot's of shorts with the occasional keeper. Later in the morning when the south wind came on the bite was over for us. After a tough day the guys managed to go home with half a limit catch of 18 Keepers. Tough day with a good crew.

12/08/2016 The Enzo Padovani charter was on board today. Along with Enzo were Sean, Brian, Delbert & Bo. Getting to the grounds early we could see that yesterday's weather scattered the Bass and the shallow inshore areas were devoid of life. We searched over an hour and came up empty. Moving off into deeper water the bait reads improved and we finally got on some Bass. Trolling Shad rigs was the way to go today. The Shads saved what could have been a disaster. We went 7 for 8 on the Bass today finishing with 5 Bonus fish and 2 Unders the largest measuring 39". We also captured 1 Bluefish. One short Bass was released. It was tough fishing as the wind once again came on and made for uncomfortable conditions for the charter.
