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.
06/25/15 Long Time Bounty Hunter supporter Angelo Melchiorri was on the Bounty Hunter for a day of Seabass fishing. Along with Ang were his fishing buddies Brian, Marc, Wes, Brian & Victor. It was another perfect weather day and the Seabass were hungry. Paul made 4 stops today and all produced good numbers of quality Seabass. By 11AM the boys had put their limit catch of 90 Seabass in the box along with 14 Ling. Always a fun time when Angelo is on the boat. We rehash old stories about our Canyon experiences from years past. Time is running out. Seabass season closes on June 30th. We are scheduled for Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. Spots are available. If you want to get on one of the trips E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/24/15 The Frank Derrico charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Seabass fishing. Frank is a long time Bounty Hunter supporter but his crew today was made up of 5 newbies. The first 2 hours were spent going thru a long learning curve but after a couple hours the crew got the hang of it and settled down. They patiently fished thru the shorts while on their way to putting a 6 man Limit catch of 90 Seabass plus 7 Ling in the box. A good time was had by all and everyone went home with a bag of fillets. Open Boat Fluke trips are scheduled for July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. Call me at 732-323-8700 if you want to reserve a spot on one of the days.
06/23/15 Capt.Paul had the Kevin Devine charter on board the Bounty Hunter for what was supposed to be a Striped Bass charter. Paul alerted Kevin & his crew that the Striped Bass fishing has not been the greatest as of late. The guy's wanted to try so Paul spent a few hours working the area around the Rocks and further to the north. With no bites Kevin and his guys chose to go for the large Blues up in the Bay. Paul joined the Party Boat Fleet and the crew had a banner day Jigging large Blues. Ava 47's did the trick. They kept 15 Blues and released all the others. A brief stop on the Rocks during the ride home did not produce a bite. Spots still remain available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your Spot.
