05/26/2017 The Keith Toboada Charter was on board Friday for the Opening Day of the Seabass Season. Along with Keith were Carl, Russ, Ryan, Pete & Brad. Paul cleared the Inlet and headed out to a favorite drop and the guys were not disappointed. The 6 man limit of 60 Seabass was in the box in no time. Paul came back inshore and spent time Trolling for Striped Bass but the reads were scarce so the charter decided to call it a day and head for home.
05/24/2017 The Ed Dempsey charter joined Capt. Paul today for a day of Striped Bass fishing. Making up Ed's crew we buddies Josi, Chris, An, Mike & Chris V. Fishing was tough today we had to cover a lot of miles attempting to locate the Bass. When we finally found the target we got one shot at them and that was it for the day. The one shot produced 3 hook ups. We dropped one but landed the next two. Both nice fish with one coming in at 41" and the second at 44". It was a long tough day with a good crew.
05/22/2017 The Clay Wurmster Charter was on board today. Along with Clay were Bill, Cheryl, Clint & Don. This was their first Striped Bass charter and they were anxious to go despite the rain and marginal conditions. We cleared the Inlet into a pouring rain and slight roll out of the east. Paul ran back to where we had them yesterday and we put out the TGT Spoons. The reads were spread out and the bites came slow but over the course of a few hours the group managed to put 3 nice Bass into the boat. It became obvious by mid morning that Ocean Motion was taking it's toll on the group and they requested that we fish a short day.
05/21/2017 Today we had long time supporter Al Belmont on board. Rounding out Al's crew were Alex, Tony, Matt & Ashton. We got into the Bass early boxing 3 nice Overs up to 40lbs. Suddenly the Blues came on strong and the boys battled over 3 dozen large ones on Spoons, casting Plugs & Jigs. After the slack tide we made a little wiggle that's been holding Bass and put two more Overs and one unlucky 42" in the box. The guys only kept a few Blues for the Smoker and released the rest. It was a beautiful day on the water and Albert and Alex both landed quality Bass. I'm sure they will be a little sore in the morning.
05/19/2017 Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Ed Warters on board today. Filling out Ed's crew were Bob, Steve, Tony, Charles & Steve. It did not take long to see that the previous days South wind and current had slowed dawn the Bass bite. Paul worked the area from the north down to Lavallete with very few reads of Bass or Bait. Working the Mojos and Spoons we were able to save the day when each rig landed a nice Striper. The largest at 48" followed by a nice 44" Bass. It was a tough day with a good crew.
05/16/2017 Today we had Don Beshada and his buddy Steve out for some Bass fishing. We went right back at it with the TGT Spoons and in a short while had a double header in the boat consisting of a couple beautiful 47", 42# and 44", 37# Stripers. After a few more single bites we had our limit of Overs. We also released a 46" Bass to swim another day. We called it quits after that. The boys told me that last weeks fish made some awesome Tacos and this weeks fish should do the same. Open Boat Striper trips are scheduled for May 17th, 18th, 22nd, 23rd & 25th. Don't miss out on a great bite. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/15/2017 Paul had the Jim Sears charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Making up Jim's crew were friends Jay, Mark & Bill. Fortunately Paul got on some good reads a little tighter to the beach. Unfortunately the Blues had moved back into the area and the Bass were scarce. Switching over to light tackle and casting Ava's and Spinners the Blues supplied the action. Jim's crew boxed all the Blues they needed then went into the release mode. Giving one last shot with the Spoons we managed to put 1 Bass into the boat then we called it a day. A tough weather day with a good crew. Check out our Open Boat Striper schedule on the "Open Boat Charter" page of our Website. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
