08/07/2016 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat fluke trip today. On board we had Joe, Steve, Tom, Craig & Ed. Paul ran back to the area where he had them the other day and despite the less than perfect conditions the Fluke bite was good. The crew put together a decent catch of 9 keeper Fluke while releasing nearly 40 shorts. They also had a couple of nice Seabass. The hot hand today was Bounty Hunter regular Joe who accounted for 7 of the 9 Fluke in the box. Way to go Joe! We are scheduled to sail Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug 11th & 12th.

08/05/2016 Paul had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Filling out Matt's group were Greg, Mack, Gary, Mick & Steve. Paul fished closer to home today and the day started slow. After a few hours we finally got some wind and the Fluke started to bite. The guys had plenty of action with short Fluke but managed to put together a decent catch of 9 keepers. Mick had the hot hand today. He added 2 nice size Fluke to the catch the first measured 23" and he followed up with a 26" beauty. The MacSherrys have been fishing with us for over 10 years and it's always a good time when they are on board. We are scheduled to run Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 8th, 9th, 11th & 12th.

08/04/2016 Today we had the Rick Wilson charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Rick was fishing with friends that flew in from Michigan to enjoy a day of ocean fishing. Along with Rick were Mark, Tom & Chad. A big heave left over from the Northeast winds made for difficult conditions. Paul made a stop and the crew got their Seabass limit. They went on to catch plenty of short Porgies but only managed to put 4 Keepers on ice. They followed up by putting two 20" Fluke. in the box and releasing over 20 shorts. They had a little bit of everything but the big numbers were not there today. On the plus side they caught a beautiful weather day and everyone had a good time. We are sailing Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 6th, 8th, 9th, 11th & 12th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your Spot
07/30/2016 Paul ran an Open Boat trip today. On board we had Jon, Maria, Tom, Pete, James & Mike. Paul ran north and got on the rough bottom. The lack of wind in the AM made for slow to no drift conditions. The crew picked a few keeper size Fluke and had plenty of shorts. The on coming south wind later in the day did not help as more shorts were caught along with a few more keepers. When we called it a day we had 8 Fluke in the box along with a couple of Seabass and 1 Ling. Over 60 short Fluke were released. We had a nice day with a good crew. Hope to see them back soon. Next Open Boat Fluke trips will be on Aug. 1st & 6th & 7th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/23/2016 The John Carlson charter returned to the Bounty Hunter for a day of Fluke fishing. Rounding out John's crew were Mike, Mark, Chris & John. Paul got up to the rough bottom and a couple of the guys decided to drag bait and the others fished with Bucktails. At days end we had 6 keepers in the box. 3 caught on Bucktails and 3 caught on bait. So go figure which way is best. Aside from the keeper Fluke we lost count of the shorts that were released. We do know that there were a lot. Open Boat sailings for Fluke are scheduled for July 25th, 26th, & 31st. The trip scheduled for the 30th is now full. To get in on one of these trips call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/22/2015 The Pat Vannest family joined Capt. Paul for their annual charter on the Bounty Hunter. Although Pat and her husband Rick and Son Brett live in Texas they try to get up to NJ as often as possible to enjoy a day of fishing at the Jersey Shore. Today was scheduled to be a Bluefish trip but with the fishing being a little slow they opted to switch to Fluke. Not being familiar with Bucktails they chose to drag bait in the sand as they always did. Despite the fast drift they put 7 nice keepers in the box and released a ton of shorts. It's always been a fun day when this crowd is on the boat and today was no different. Open Boat Fluke Sailings are scheduled for July 25th, 26th & 31st. An Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trip is scheduled for July 27th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/21/2016 Paul had the Don Beshada charter on board today. Don could not make the day so he sent his friend Dave Mcfadden to fill the trip. Along with Dave were his Son Luke and his friend Bryan. It was not a good day for us. Conditions were not good and the best we could do was pick thru the short Fluke. When the picking was done we had 4 Nice Fluke on ice, the largest just under 6 lbs. Other than the fishing it was another good day with a group of die hard anglers. Running Open Boat Fluke trips on July 26th, 27th, 30th & 31st. Plus an Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trip on July 27th.
