06/06/16 After 3 years Steve Budnovitch finally got in his Charter. Steve has been cancelled every year since 2014 due to bad weather on every day he had chartered. But today was different as he got in a great trip. Making up Steve's crew were Frank, Gregg & Francis. Paul put the guys on the Bass early. They passed on the Snag & Drop fishing so Paul went right to the Plugs & Spoons. They had a nice steady bite as they finished the day going 7 for 8 on big Bass. We had 3 Unders and 4 Overs with the 2 largest Bass weighing at 35 & 39lbs. The crew caught a perfect weather day and experienced some great Bass fishing. Hope we see them again before another 3 years passes. I am sailing Open Boat Striped Bass trips on June 15th & 20th. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/04/2016 Longtime Bounty Hunter supporter Bill Zuchero was on board today. Along with Bill were his usual cast of players. Matt, Mike, Chris, Tom & Dave. Paul worked a little further offshore today and found the Seabass a little more willing to bite. The Guy's boxed over 30 Seabass on the first stop then continued to add to the catch on every other stop we made. A double check of the count put us at 59 Seabass and it seemed like an eternity to catch Seabass #60. But the guy's finally caught a keeper and we were on our way home with a 6 man Limit Catch. Always fun to fish with this crew. Lot's of BB and laughs. Taking tomorrow off. Will be back at it on Monday for Striped Bass. I will be running a couple more Open Boat Trips for Striped Bass in June. Dates will be posted shortly. Get in on the Bass bite while it lasts. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/03/2016 We had the Mike Crier charter on board today. Mike is visiting from Florida where he lives and wanted to take a shot at NJ Seabass fishing. Along with Mike were Jim, Ted, & Shawn. Paul made several stops today and found Seabass on most. The small Seabass had a great day stealing bait from the inexperienced crew. It took till noon but the guy's finally put Seabass #40 in the box. We were back at the Marina by 1PM and everyone went home with their bag of Fillets. It was a nice weather day with another good crew. All my scheduled Open Boat Trips are now full. New dates for Open Boat Striper trips will be posted shortly. If you are a Fluke Fisherman now is the time to call and book your July and August Fluke Charter. Prime dates are still available.
06/02/2016 Paul ran another Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Carl. John, Robert, David, Bill & Bob. We had the usual morning Fog but it was not as bad as the last couple of days. Paul stayed local today making stops on several pieces. It wasn't lights out fishing but after fishing thru the short Seabass we boxed enough from each piece to finish with a 6 man limit of nice Seabass. We had a good crew today and enjoyed fishing with them. We will be back at it again in the AM. 1 Spot is still available for the June 7th Open Boat Seabass trip. Call 732-323-8700 if you want this last spot.
06/01/2016 Capt. Paul Ran another Open Boat Seabass trip today. Making up the crew were Connor, Connor Jr., Jim, Jim Jr, Tom & Al. As has been the case lately we ran into a Pea Soup fog offshore and only had occasional glimpses of the blue sky. It was a little tougher putting the catch together today. The quality of the Seabass was good but the stops gave them up grudgingly. Shortly after Noon we had our Boat Limit catch in the box but it was not easy fishing. The guys toughed it out and all went home with a bag full of Fillets. Hope to see them on board again. 3 Spots are still open for the June 7th Open Boat Seabass trip and 4 Spots are Open for the June 9th Open Boat Striper Trip. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/31/2016 Paul ran an Open Boat SEABASS trip today. On board we had Joe, Chris, Dan, Mike, Joe & Al. As usual we had an early start and as usual we had the early morning Fog. It did not matter as Paul put the boat on top of a couple of small pieces that were loaded with SEABASS. It only took a few hours to put a Boat Limit catch on ice. With time remaining Paul ran inshore and put out the Trolling gear in search of a Bass or two. After a couple of hours without a touch it was decided to call it a day. 3 Spots are still available for the June 7th Open Boat SEABASS trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. Remember Seabass season closes on June 19th.
05/30/2016 Paul had the Dave Dry charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Unfortunately Dave had to miss the day due to a bad ankle injury, but his sympathetic friends were more than willing to fish without him. Making up the crew were DJ, Jesse "The Body", Matt & Darr. We cleared the Inlet at 6AM and ran into a pea soup fog with occasional rain showers. The Radar never showed a Blip for the entire ride up to the grounds and we found ourselves alone for the entire day. We put out the Trolling gear and the guys had a nice steady pick of Big Bass. At the end of the day we had gone 6 for 7 on the Bass. We had 2 Unders and 4 Overs. The two largest Bass measured the same, 47" in length and both weighed 42 lbs. After yesterdays tough fishing it was a pleasure to fish alone in the Fog & Rain. We will be back out tomorrow. 3 Spots remain available for our June 7th Open Boat SEABASS trip. Call 732-323-8700 To Reserve Your Spot.
