11/11/2014 The Dave Dry charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Striper fishing. Acting on recent Intel that a bite was shaping up on the southern grounds Paul turned right as we cleared the Inlet. We found the Bait schools and Bass exactly where we were told they would be. The jigging boats informed us that the Jigging was slow so rather than waste time we put out our Trolling gear. We had our first Bass within 10 minutes and the charter enjoyed a nice steady bite for the rest of the morning. Dave and his crew finished up with 10 Bass up to 30 lbs. on the troll and when Paul made a brief stop on a Bunker school on the way home we we went 1 for 3 while Livelining. It was a good day finally with a great crew. Will be back at it tomorrow.
11/10/2014 We had the Ed Sobjak charter on board the Bounty Hunter on Monday. Paul decided to give the northern grounds another try. We had no problem finding the bait with good reads but once again an effort at Jigging was not productive. Finally it was decided to put out the Trolling gear and the bites started to come. For the day we trolled 21 Stripers. 20 were shorts and we finished with 1 keeper plus 7 Bluefish. It was not great fishing but it was a vast improvemewnt over the past few days.
10/20/2014 It was another good Open Boat Seabass trip with another great crew. On board we had Tom, Jay, Bill, Frank, Joe and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Michael. Paul put the boys on a nice pile for our first stop and the Seabass were hungry. The guy's had 62 nice Seabass in the box when it was time to move. We made brief stops on a few more pieces and by Noon we had another 6 man limit catch of 90 quality Seabass plus 1 nice Porgy and 1 Triggerfish. The weather was fine the fish bit and everyone went home with a bag of fillets. What more can you ask for? Spots are still available for our Open Boat Striper trips scheduled for Nov. 13th & 26th. E-Mail or give me a call (732-323-8700) to reserve your spot.
10/19/2014 Paul ran an Open boat trip to start off the Seabass season. On board we had regulars Steve, Michael and Albert along with newcomers to the Bounty Hunter Al, Rich & Pete. Paul decided to stay away from the inshore crowd and fish the deeper water. It was a good move as we did not have another boat around us all day and the deeper spots were holding some very nice Seabass. The crew boxed over 45 Seabass on the first drop and then picked away on the next drops to finish up with a 6 man limit catch of 90 quality Seabass along with 6 big Triggerfish. It was a great day on the water with a stellar crew. We hope to see them return soon. Spots are still available on our Open Boat Striper trips scheduled for Nov. 13th & 26th. The trip on the 18th is full. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spots.
09/27/2014 The Chris Cameroni charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. After 2 weather postponements Chris and his crew finally got in a good weather day. We still had a brisk north wind and a strong north curent in the AM and that kept the Blues bait shy for the first 3 hours but as the wind subsided the Blues slowly came on. Chris and his crew picked away and ended the day with a dozen Blues in the box. It was a great weather day with a good crew. Chris will be back for his annual Striper Charter in November. The Stripers are going to be here. Now is the time to call and book your day. 732-323-8700.
09/21/2014 Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had regulars Mike, Paul, Doug, Jim and new comers to the Bounty Hunter Mike and Jim. The wind was calm but the ocean had a huge SE swell. We made our way out to the deeper water and once again we were into the Fluke. However today there was very little drift and the Skates, Sea Robins and smooth Sand Sharks were present in large numbers. The crew Bucktailed their butts off and managed to land 8 keeper Fluke while releasing over 40 shorts along with too many Skates, Robins and smoothies to count. As usual it was a good day with a great crew. November is coming fast. The Stripers will be here. Now is the time to call and book your charter. 732-323-8700.
09/18/2014 Don Beshada broke away from his busy work schedule to join Paul for a few hours of Fluke fishing. Our first stops only produced a few shorts. A move of a couple miles put us on a good spread of Fluke and the action was non stop. Unfortunately the mad bite consisted of 16" to 17 1/2" fish. Don had several double hook ups and we stopped counting when we reached 40 shorts. We finished the morning with 3 keepers and lost count of the shorts. We all had a good time on a picture perfect day. November is coming fast and the Stripers will be here. Now is the time to call and book your charter. The available days will not last long.
