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.
10/27/15 The Steve Lopez charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Striper fishing. Making up Steve's crew were Neal, Sean, Doug, John & Corrado. Paul got an early start and made his way up to the northern grounds. Paul got into the Bass reads early and put out the Trolling gear. The guy's had no problem catching their 28" t0 43" Limit and added one Over fish (44"). They were not interested in release fishing so they called it a day early. We finished the morning with 7 Keepers. It was another good trip with a long time Bounty Hunter supporter. Steve may be back in November to pick up where he left off today.
10/25/15 Paul ran the Fall Season's first Striped Bass charter today. On board we had the Bob Castor charter. Filling out Bob's crew were Brandon, Pat, Bob, Bill & RJ. We made the ride to the north and caught the start of the outgoing tide. Trolling was the name of the game today and it did not take long to put our first 40" Bass on ice. 20 minutes later we boxed our big fish of the day when a nice 45" Bass went into the box. When the area dried up we moved a few miles and were into a good bite of smaller Bass. The crew put another 5 Bass into the cooler between 33" & 37". We finished the day with 7 Bass. It was a good day with a great crew.
