10/04/2013 We had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Along with Matt were Mac, Mick, Shaun, Gary and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Wayne. It was another calm day on the ocean and the fishing was the same as yesterday. You had to find the pieces that held the Seabass then you would pick a few and have to move on. Paul made several stops and the guys slowly put together a catch. High point of the day was when Shaun hooked up an estimated 100 lb. Mako on a Seabass rig and managed to hold it on for several minutes. The Mako entertained everyone with several jumps before breaking off and going on it's way. The guys finished up the day with 49 nice Seabass in the box but overall once again it was tough fishing. Spots are still available for the Open Boat trip on the 14th (Closing Day). Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
10/03/2013 The Jeff Crystal charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Seabass fishing. We got an early start and sailed into a flat calm ocean. Paul made several stops during the day, some had life on them while others were lifeless. With no wind, current or drift the Seabass were not very active. Shorts far outnumbered the keepers and the guys had to work hard to put together a catch. At the end of the day we had 41 nice Seabass in the box but overall it was tough fishing. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trips on the 8th, 10th & 14th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/29/2013 Paul ran another Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board were all Bounty Hunter regulars Mike, Mark, Paul, Jack, Rob & Paul. Paul put the guy's on the fish early and we started to put together a decent catch. With the sunrise came the expected wind and conditions started to go downhill. Ocean motion slowed down a few of the guys but despite the conditions they put together a nice catch of 61 Seabass and 1 Trigger fish. It was decided to call it a day at 11:30AM. It was by far the best fishing we've had since Opening Day. Spots are still available for the Open Boat trips on Sept. 8th, 10th & 14th. (Columbus Day). E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/27/2013 We had Don Beshada on the Bounty Hunter today. Don flew in from Vegas this morning and came right to the boat to do a 4 hr. Opening Day Seabass charter. Paul decided to fish the deeper offshore drops but a steadily increasing NE wind made for less than perfect conditions. We made 4 drops and read some life on each but the fishing was less than stellar. Don gave it a maximum effort and had a little help from Tony. When we called it a day at 11AM there were 30 keeper Seabass in the box. In spite of the conditions it was nice to see the Seabass again. Open Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trips on Oct. 8th, 10th & 14th. The season closes on Oct 14th so get in your last Seabass trip for 2013. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/20/2013 Paul had the Matt MacSherry charter on board today. Along with Matt were his usual regulars Mick, Mac, Greg & Gary. Paul worked the deeper wrecks & piles today but the morning to noon conditions were terrible. Current into the wind a practicaly no drift. The guy's put a couple in the box but it was not what you would call great fishing. Around Noon we had a tide change and we got the start of a south wind and conditions improved. The crew finished the day with 12 nice Fluke in the box the largest of which was an 8 1/2 lb. beauty landed by Matt We also kept 8 Ling. Spots are still available for the last 2 Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 23rd & 24th. Give me a call to reserve your spot otherwise you will have to wait until next year.
09/18/2013 Capt. Paul had Don Beshada back on the Bounty Hunter for another day of Fluke fishing. We knew going in that it was going to be a slow day after yesteday's NE weather. As we suspected the ocean offshore had a rough residual roll in it with a brisk NW wind and our first drift approached 2 Knots. It was not until late morning that the wind subsided and we finally caught a few fish. Shorts far outnumbered the keepers but Don managed to put 7 nice fish in the boat and released over 25 shorts. Spots are still available for the final 3 Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 22nd, 23rd & 24th. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/15/2013 Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had Bounty Hunter regulars Mike, Paul, Mark & newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Dave. We set out into a brisk NW wind which put a roll on the ocean the further offshore you went. On our first stop we had a 1.6 Knot drift but as the morning wore on the wind diminished and we slowly got down to a .3 Knot drift. The Drift speed did not really affect the Fluke bite as the guy's picked all day. A miscount of the Fluke in the box indicated a limit catch of 20 Fluke. At the dock at days end the actual count was 19 Keepers. We probably realeased 2 or 3 keepers after the miscount, so we missed the limit by 1. Fluke season closes on 9/27. Get in on the few remaining Open Boat trips which will be posted shortly Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
