11/22/15 Paul had the Mike Raimondi charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Mike's charter were Tom, Lloyd & Tom. With a wind shift to the NW the ocean was a much friendlier place today. Paul started the day a short distance north of our Inlet then decided to run south on word that a few Bass were being caught below our Inlet. The Shad rigs were deployed and the bite was not bad.The crew had a nice steady pick boating 16 Bass. They kept 2 Unders which measured 29" and 34" along with 3 Bonus fish. The others were all released. It was another good day with a great crew.
11/21/15 Capt. Paul had the Chris Marano charter on board today. Along with Chris were Jerry, Mike, Bill, Joe & Ken. Paul cleared the Inlet into a stiff NE wind and headed north. The first 10 miles were tough and the wind gusts up to 25 knots did not help the ride. The seas began to settle as we got further north and we put out the Trolling gear. The big Bass were scarce today and the Bonus size fish supplied the days action. For the day we had over a dozen Bass. The largest measured 35" and weighed 17 1/2 lbs. The rest were all Bonus size. We kept 2 and released the others. At 1PM the charter had their fill of big waves and small Bass so we called it a day. Be back at it tomorrow with another good crew.
11/16/15 The Ed Sobjak charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Ed were Kyle, Steve, Jim, Mike & Bruce. Paul ran to the area where he had the Bass yesterday. The reads were solid and after putting out the Trolling gear the guy's were into the Bass big time. We had plenty of hook ups but only managed to put 3 Bass in the boat while losing over 10. After a little instruction the guys settled down and the next 2 Bass were boated nicely. Steve a member of the charter fought the last Bass a 44 1/2" beauty and as the fish hit the deck Steve collapsed. Paul immediately seen that Steve was in need of Medical assistance. Manasquan CG had a fast boat within 3 miles of our location and they responded to our call and were boat side within minutes. Steve was transferred to the CG vessel and they were of to the Hospital where unfortunately Steve did not survive. Steve was an avid fisherman and he passed doing what he loved. He will be missed by all of us. Capt. Paul and the crew of the Bounty Hunter send their Condolences and Prayers to Steve's family during this difficult time.
11/15/15 The John Carlson charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Rounding out John's charter were Mark, Chris, John and Anthony. The Bunker and Bass were spread out North & South of the Inlet and it was not difficult to get on the good reads. Paul put out the Spoons and the guys picked away at some nice size Bass. By Noon we had landed a boat limit of 6 Unders and one 44" Over. It was another good day with a great bunch of guys. We look forward to seeing John and his crew again.
11/14/15 The Bill Zuchero charter was on board today. Making up Bill's group were regulars Ron, Matt, Jon, Chris & Walt. Conditions this morning were much improved from yesterday and it did not take long for Paul to get into the good Bass and Bunker reads. The charter spent a short time attempting Snag & Drop Bunker fishing. It was their first effort ever and after several bites and no hook ups Paul decided to put out the Spoons and do a little Trolling. The Troll bite was good and the guys put a boat limit catch of Unders on ice. All the Bass measured between 33" and 42". Another 3 Unders were released. We had no Overs today and did not see any Bonus size Bass.
11/13/15 Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Greg Lewis on board today. Filling out Greg's crew were Dean, Mark & John. Paul worked the area south of our Inlet and got on some good reads The water quality was less than perfect after 3 days of East winds and the Bass were not eager to bite. Paul put out the Spoons and worked the area for most of the day. The first Bass they landed measured 38" and the second Bass weighed in at 37Lbs. and measured at 43". It was a tough day with a great crew. Be back at it tomorrow with another great bunch of guys.
10/31/15 Capt. Paul had the Matt Lutz charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Along with Matt were Sean, Joe, Cody, Matt & Rob We got an early start and headed off to the deeper wrecks. It was evident early that the last 2 days of strong NE winds had moved the larger fish further offshore as only a few of the larger fish remained with the smaller ones. Matt's crew had to work thru the shorts to put a decent catch in the box. After several stops we had 64 nice Seabass in the box.This will probably be our last Seabass effort for the year as we will be concentrating on the Fall Striped Bass run. We still have a couple of days left open for charter in late November. If you want to book a charter now is the time to call.
