07/13/15 Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. With 2 last minute cancellations Paul decided to run with 4. On board we had Bounty Hunter regulars Mike and Paul along with new comers to Bucktailing Joe & his wife Melisa. Paul ran north and fished the rough bottom. With no wind and very little drift we had our work cut out for us. There were a lot of shorts with only an occasional keeper. All 4 worked hard and caught over 40 shorts but in between they put 8 nice keeper Fluke in the box. The weather was great and we spent the day with a great group of people. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for July 20th & 21st. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spots.
07/11/15 Paul had the Mike Bartsch charter on board for a day of Blue fishing. Filling out Mike's charter were Paul, Lou, John, Jerry & Steve. We got an early start and headed out east to the grounds. A search of the area did not show any Bluefish activity so we proceeded to search to the south. Paul got on some scattered reads and Mike's crew went to work with the Ava 27's, 47's and red teasers. It was not a mad dog bite but the crew picked away and boxed 70 small Blues. It was a nice day with a good crew. Everyone had a good time and all went home with a bag of Fillets. Spots are available for our Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for July 20th & 21st.

07/08/15 Capt. Paul had Don Beshada out for a couple hours of Fluke fishing. The weather was OK and the ocean conditions were fine. The only thing missing was a good Fluke bite. Paul worked the rough bottom up north and all that we managed was 3 keepers and several shorts plus 1 Cod Fish which was released. Paul made several moves from 40 Ft. to 70 ft. and it was the same story on each stop, slow fishing. We were back at the dock by Noon. We still have Open Spots for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 12th, 20th & 21st. Open Spots are also available on the Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips scheduled for July 13th & 22nd. Call me at732-323-8700 to reserve your Spot.
07/03/15 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had Bounty Hunter regulars Mark & Dave along with first timers John, Tony, Lewis and Jack. Today's fishing was a vast improvement from yesterday. Aside from the strong current in the AM fishing conditions were OK. Paul fished the rough bottom and we started off with 5 nice Fluke on ice before the bite died. It was slow through midday but the Fluke came on in the afternoon. The guy's then added another 8 Fluke to the catch. They finished with 13 nice keepers along with 1 Ling and their legal limit of Seabass. Considering we had a couple of newbies to the Bucktailing game we were very pleased with the catch. Spots are still available for our scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 9th, 10th & 12th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/02/15 Paul ran his first Open Boat Fluke trip of the year today. On board we had Mark, Dave, John & Fred. Paul sailed with 4 as we had 2 last minute cancellations. Today's conditions did not make for good Fluke fishing as we had no wind drift or current. The guy's worked hard and managed to box 6 nice Fluke, 1 Ling and their legal limit of Seabass. They also released several short Fluke. In between the Fluke the Sea Robins and Skates kept everyone busy. Not an exciting day by far but it was nice to spend the day with a great crew. Hope to see them all back when the fishing improves. Spots are available for our Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for July 9, 10 & 12. The July 8th trip is chartered.
06/30/15 The Justin Shearer charter joined Capt. Paul for a Closing Day Seabass charter. Along with Justin we had Doug, Jon & Terre. Today was a vast improvement from yesterday's ocean condition's. Paul made stops on small pieces to start the day and picked a few on each drop. The 4th stop he put the charter on a big pile of Seabass and it was lights out fishing for the big Knuckleheads. Justin's crew quickly boxed their 4 man limit and added a couple of Ling. The wind was coming on around Noon and with all they were entitled to in the box we decided to call it an end to the day and the Spring Seabass season. Spots are available on the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for July 2nd and 4th. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/29/15 Capt. Paul had the Dave Fleming charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Rounding out Dave's crew were Andrew, Jon, Matt, Jon & David. Today's early ocean conditions were far from ideal. A crisp NW wind made for a good roll offshore, add to that a strong NE current with a SE swell and staying on the reads was difficult. The boys toughed it out all morning until the wind dropped out and the fishing improved. They then went on to put 72 nice Seabass on ice along with 10 Ling. A tough day with a good crew and their effort paid off. Spots are available on the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for 7/1 and 7/2. E-mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
