09/04/2014 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Bill, Ron, Jay, Vern, Paul & Rich. Conditions today were perfect. Little to no wind and no current. Paul ran a little further today but the move paid off. A few of the stops held little to no life but the ones that did held some quality Seabass. The guy's worked each drop hard and were rewarded with a limit catch of 90 Seabass. In addition they caught and released 7 undersize Fluke. It was a great group to fish with and we look forward to their return. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for Sept. 9, 11, 13 & 14. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/03/2014 Today we had the Dave Fleming charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Paul got an early start and was on his first drop by 7AM. It became immediately apparent that we were going to be fighting a strong south current. Adding to the challenge was the fact that 4 of the 5 crew members never fished for Seabass before. After the first 2 hours we did not have a Seabass in the box. Slowly the guys got it together and started to have a slow pick. We had to make 8 drops but the boys put it together and finished the day with a nice catch of 51 Seabass. They also had 6 Fluke 1 of which measured over 18" while the others went back. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 9, 11, 13 & 14. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/01/2014 Paul ran an Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had newcomers to the Bounty Hunter Mario, Aldo and Chris along with Bounty Hunter regular Ginny. Paul ran offshore and made stops on 6 spots that he last fished in June. All held good life but only 3 produced the quality fish we were looking for. The guys and gal fished hard and put together a limit catch of 60 nice Seabass. We enjoyed a calm ocean and good fishing with a great crew. Spots are available for the Sept. 8th Bluefin Tuna trip and the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 9, 11, 13 & 14. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/29/2012 Paul had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Along with Matt were Gary, Mac, Tony & Marc. After clearing the Inlet we were greeted by a brisk NNE wind which made for uncomfortable conditions once beyond a mile of the shoreline. Paul ran up to the northern grounds and for the first couple of hours the crew toughed it out until the wind began to subside. For the day we had plenty of bites as the guys released over 25 shorts but the best we could do on this day was 7 keepers all of which were between 18" & 24". Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 1st & 2nd and the Open Boat midrange Tuna trips on Sept. 8th & 10th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/25/2012 Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board were Dave,Landon, Terry, Jack, Matt and Bounty Hunter regular Mike. After 3 days of NE winds it was a toss up as to where to fish. Paul decided to start off Elberon and work his way North. We had a good drift and plenty of bites but with 3 Newbies to Bucktailing plenty of misses. We had our shots but as the wind began to flop and the drift dropping to .3 Knots the catching slowed. We finished up with 11 keepers and a handful of Peewee Blues. Mike landed the 3 largest Fluke of the day they weighed in a 5Lb, 6lb and 8 Lb. We had great weather and a great crew to fish with. Spots are still Open for the Open Boat Fluke trips sailing this weekend Aug. 30th & 31st. E-Mail me or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. Also, Seabass season Opens for 6 days starting Sept. 1st. Get in on one of our Open Boat sailings scheduled for Sept. 1st, 2nd & 4th. Call today.
08/20/2014 The Nick Bechtel charter was on board today. Along with Nick were friends Jason, Evan, Kitt & Justin. Paul ran east to the area where the Blues bit well the night before but the area showed no signs of life. After an hour without a touch it was decided to make the run north to the Mud. The fishing for big Blues was good early but was slowing down as we arrived. The Blues were wire shy and fishing with 30lb. leaders produced a dozen bites but the crew only managed to land 3 big Blues and one 23" Fluke. The weather was perfect and we had a good time with a great crew. Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips have been scheduled for Sept. 8th, 10th & 12th. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/15/2014 Don Beshada returned to the Bounty Hunter for his weekly Fluke trip. Paul arrived on the Fluke grounds early and we had instant bites. The only problem being all the Fluke were short. Don could only fish till 11:30AM but we managed to box 3 keepers while releasing over 15 shorts. The 2 largest Fluke weighed in at 5 1/2 & 6 Lbs. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 21st & 25th and our Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips on Aug. 19th & 27th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
