11/16/2016 The Brian Bonnett charter was on board today. Completing Brian's crew were Dan, Joe, Brian C. & Connor. Paul searched for the Bunker but found very few. Moving a few miles we came into some bird play and Paul put our the TGT Spoons. The Bass were there in good numbers but we were frustrated when for every Bass we landed we had several bumps & misses. The crew worked a long morning landing 14 Big Bass, Keeping 5 Under's and 1 Over fish which measured 47" and weighed in a few ounces short of 40 Lbs. Our smallest fish of the day was a 33" Bass. It was a perfect weather day and we made 5 new friends. Looking forward to their return.
11/14/2016 The Ed Sobjak charter was on board today. Joining Ed were George, Mike, Brian, Jack & Phil. It did not take long for Paul to find the Bunker and the guys went to work with the Snags. The bite lasted a couple of hours and when it was over we had a boat limit of Unders and one 45" Over on ice, while more than 2 dozen Unders were released. To finish the day Paul made a move and put out the Spoons. The guys added several Monster Blues to their catch. It was good fishing and we guess the PA smokers will be busy for a while.
11/13/2016 Paul had the Doug Ruppel charter on board today. Doug had his friends Kevin, Steve, Antonio & Reynaldo along to fill out his crew. After the last 2 days of slow fishing Paul was on his way up to the Bay when he was alerted to a decent Bass bite going on north of Asbury. He pulled up short and it proved to be a good move. Paul had the guys Casting Shads, & Livelining and both methods produced a nice catch. He ended the day Trolling Spoons and the TGT Yellow Spoons did not disappoint as we finished with a Boat Limit of Unders up to 42 7/8" while releasing another 8. Along the way the crew added 6 Big Blues to the catch. It's been a while since we fished with Doug and it was nice to spend the day with an old friend.
11/12/2016 Sailed today with the Bill Zuchero charter. Filling out the team were regulars Matt, John, Mike, Walt & Ron. It was another tough day for us as we found the schools of Bait but the Bass were reluctant to bite. As was the case yesterday a few hours of Livelining produced 1 Striped Bass and then the bite was over. Ran up to the area around the Rocks and got into some great Bluefish reads, so we put out the Spoons and the guys finished the day fighting the Big Blues. They took a few home and released the rest. Hopefully the bite will improve tomorrow. Stand By.
11/11/2016 Capt. Paul had the Dave Dry charter on board today. Along with Dave were Steve, Carlo, David M. & Armondo. The crew snagged their Bunkers and loaded up the Well in the AM. After getting on some decent reads a couple of hours of Snag & Drop fishing produced a few run offs and one 42" Bass. Setting up on some new reads we put out the Spoons. After several bumps and misses we finally boated a nice 40" Bass. That was it for the day. The brisk NW wind made it a little snappy once you got out to the Line. So staying close was the smart thing to do. We will back at it tomorrow.
10/30/2016 Capt. Paul had the Wilson Palm charter on board today. Making up Wilson's crew were Dino, Ken, Jason, Scott & Joe. Paul worked a few small snags offshore that always held good Seabass life in the past and we were not disappointed. Each stop produced a good number of quality Seabass, plenty of shorts and the occasional Dogfish. When the day ended Wilson's crew had put a 6 man Limit catch of 90 Seabass on ice along with a couple of Trigger fish. It was a perfect weather day and we spent it with a good crew.
10/29/2016 Long time Bounty Hunter supporter Keith Frederick was on board today. Rounding out Keith's crew were Rick, Jefferey, Krystof & Keith T. Paul fished a little deeper today and had no problem finding the life. The short Seabass were active again but today there were some nice keeper size Seabass in the mix. The bite was steady until the wind came on late in the morning them conditions deteriorated. It really didn't matter as the charter had their 5 Man Limit of 75 Seabass in the box. We were back at the dock by 1PM. We had a good day with a great crew. They will be back again.
