06/14/2014 The Bill McLean charter was on board today. Fishing with Bill were friends Dennis, Dave, Jeff, Robert & John. We got an early start and found the bait off Spring Lake. Although new to snagging the crew had a good time filling the live well. A call from Capt. Scott (XTC) that a Trolling bite looked promising up north had us rack the snagging rods and bring out the Trolling gear. Paul got on some good reads and we picked away at the Bass for most of the morning finishinbg up with 7 Bass the 2 largest weighing in at 38 & 36 lbs. We also trolled 7 Alligator Blues. We saved the bait for tomorrow. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trips on June 24th & 30th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/13/2014 Capt. Paul had the Shaun Root charter on board today. We sailed into a dense Fog and a big residual heave from yesterday's weather. Searching for Bunker in the Fog proved futile and after 1 1/2 hours of searching we put out the Trolling gear but had no bites. Ocean motion was starting to take it's toll on the charter so Paul headed offshore to put some Seabass in the boat. Shaun's crew made a great effort but by 10pm we were down to 2 anglers and they decided to call it a day. It just was not a very nice day but we met and fished with a great group of guys.
Spots are still available for the last 2 Open Boat Seabass trips on June 24th and June 30th. On July 1st the retention limit drops to 3 Seabass per person per day until Aug. 31st. Call today to reserve your spot.
6/10/14 Today we had long time Bounty Hunter customer Ken Steiner on board. Along with Ken were friends Bob, Jim and Andrew. It was like Deja Vu as we found the bait and the guy's had no problem putting 40 pieces in the live well. We sailed south and found the Bass and Bunker schools. As was the case yesterday all the action came in the first couple of hours. The crew put 3 nice Bass in the Box and a short time later a 4th Bass was on ice. We finished the day with 4 Bass the largest weighing in at 33 lbs. Always fun to fish with the Steiner group. They will return for the Fall Striper run.
06/09/2014 Capt. Paul had the Doug Aten charter on board today. Along with Doug were his fishing buddies Ben, Matt and Andrew. Paul turned right and found the Bunker schools south of our Inlet. Doug and his crew wasted no time putting 40 pieces in the Live Well. Most of the days action came in the first 2 hours as the Bass were on the feed and the crew boxed 3 nice Bass. A short time later Matt boxed the largest Bass of the day. It weighed in at 44 lbs. It's been a while since we fished with Doug. It was nice to have him and his friends on board.
06/08/2014 Today we had the Mike Ratlift charter on board the Bounty Hunter. We found the Bunker schools off Spring Lake and had no problem filling the live well. While snagging, a Bass inhaled a Bunker and we had our first fish in the box 10 minutes later. Paul moved up the line and fished the schools from the Rocks south. We had few misses but Mike and his crew did a good job adding 3 more nice Bass to the catch. That gave us 4 for for the day. We had great weather and an opportunity to spend the day with a great bunch of guys.
06/07/2014 Today we had the Jerry Mahaffey charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Jerry and his crew were all new to Seabass fishing. During the first hour there was a lot of instruction going on but the guy's were quick learners. Paul worked several local wrecks and the crew gave a very good account of themselves boxing 66 nice Seabass and 7 Ling. It was a nice day on the water with a great group of guys. We hope to see them in the future.
06/06/2014 Matt MacSherry returned to the Bounty Hunter with his crew made up of Mac, Jason, Dom & Gary. The guy's had a Seabass limit catch last week and were looking to repeat. Paul set up on a couple of pieces in deeper water and we had a good early morning pull boxing just under 50 Seabass on the first 2 stops. With the start of a south current the bite slowed and the guy's had to work hard to get what they needed. Paul worked 4 more pieces and by noon the guys boxed a 5 man limit catch totaling 75 nice Seabass along with 8 Ling. 6 nice Tog were released.
