05/15/15 Long time Bounty Hunter supporter Ed Warters was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Ed's crew were friends Mike, Bob, Steve, Bob & Mike. Paul made a right at the Inlet this morning and ran to the south. Getting into 57 degree water with an occasional bait read we put out the Spoons. We did not see or catch a Bluefish all day which was OK with the charter. Over the course of the day we had 5 Bass bites with the hooks pulled on 3 fish. Ed landed a nice 43" Bass which weighed in at 26 lbs. but the big fish of the day was hauled in by Mike Richards, It was his Personal Best to date measuring a nice 49" in length and weighing in at 47 lbs. At first glance we thought that we may have had our first 50 pound Bass of the year. Maybe tomorrow? We are running Open Boat Striped Bass Trips on May 23rd & 25th. Also Open Boat Seabass trips on June 3rd,17th & 24th. Spots are still available on these trips so E-Mail or Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/13/15 Capt. Paul had the John Bromely charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Filling out John's crew were Ron, Joe, Steve, Ron & Joe. Paul ran to the south looking to find the bait and warm water. It turned out to be a futile effort as the water temp at IBSP was 52 degrees with no signs of bait. An hour of Trolling produced "Zero". After a long ride back to the north they finally found 57 Degree water with some bait reads at the Rocks. Trolling Spoons produced over a dozen large Blues and finally a 22 lb. Striped Bass. 8 Blues were kept and the rest released. We are sailing Open Boat Striped Bass trips on May 23rd & 25th. The 24th is now full.

Bass were are primary target but the family was happy with just putting a bend in the Rod. Capt. Paul made his way back to the area where he picked a couple of nice Bass yesterday but the only life we could find were big Blues. Dan and his crew Jigged and Spooned well over 30 Blues today, releasing them all except for one to take home. No Bass but everyone had a great time.

05/09/15 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat trip today. On board were regulars Bryan, Shane, Albert and his 12 yr. old Son Alex. Paul decided to reverse direction today and again with a steady rain and foggy conditions made his way to the grounds. Paul got into some solid reads and put out the Spoons. The big Blues were on the trolled gear immediately and persisted throughout the day. Shane pulled the first Bass in. It was a 40" beauty weighing in at 30 lbs.It was followed by Albert's 39" Bass which weighed in at 34 Lbs. Plenty of big Bass around but you have to get thru the Blues.

05/08/15 The Dave Dry charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Capt. Paul headed north in a pea soup fog and started where the action was hot yesterday. It became obvious very quickly that the Big Blues had moved into the entire area. Regardless of what you put into the water the Blues ate it. Several moves only produced more Bluefish. It was a long day and a day without a Bass bite. Dave's crew kept a few Blues and released the rest. Though disappointed the crew are all fishermen and understand these type of days. They will be back in a week to give it another effort. We are running Open Boat Striped Bass trips on May 23rd, 24th, & 25th. E-Mail me or Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/03/2015 Capt. Paul ran the Bounty Hunter back up north with an Open Boat crew. On board we had Bounty Hunter supporters Bill, Chris, Joe, Ed & Doug along with newcomer 13 year old Trevor who was in search of his first Bass. It was a beautiful day weather wise but slow fishing for us. The Blues were thick with only an occasional Bass bite. We landed 2 Bass and it was young Trevor's turn for the next fish. As luck would have it the starboard rod goes off with a good run and in several minutes we net a nice 37" Bass for his first Bass ever. A Happy youngster went home. We finished with 3 Bass and kept a dozen Blues. We are running Open Boat trips on May 7th & 9th. Get in on this early bite Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
May 2nd, 2015 The Bounty Hunter is back in the water and we started our 2015 season with an Open Boat trip up to the northern grounds. On Board we had all first time Bounty Hunter customers Alan, Joe, Ernie, Skip, Walt & Bryan. We caught the last of the morning tide and managed to box 3 nice Bass and a few Blues. Thru the slack water it was slow with only an occasional Blue jumping on a Plug. Once we had moving water the Blues came back to life and along with the Bluefish the crew managed to box another 3 Bass. Biggest fish of the day measured out at 37". Open Boat trips are scheduled for May 6th, 7th & 9th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
