11/13/15 Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Greg Lewis on board today. Filling out Greg's crew were Dean, Mark & John. Paul worked the area south of our Inlet and got on some good reads The water quality was less than perfect after 3 days of East winds and the Bass were not eager to bite. Paul put out the Spoons and worked the area for most of the day. The first Bass they landed measured 38" and the second Bass weighed in at 37Lbs. and measured at 43". It was a tough day with a great crew. Be back at it tomorrow with another great bunch of guys.
10/31/15 Capt. Paul had the Matt Lutz charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Along with Matt were Sean, Joe, Cody, Matt & Rob We got an early start and headed off to the deeper wrecks. It was evident early that the last 2 days of strong NE winds had moved the larger fish further offshore as only a few of the larger fish remained with the smaller ones. Matt's crew had to work thru the shorts to put a decent catch in the box. After several stops we had 64 nice Seabass in the box.This will probably be our last Seabass effort for the year as we will be concentrating on the Fall Striped Bass run. We still have a couple of days left open for charter in late November. If you want to book a charter now is the time to call.
10/27/15 The Steve Lopez charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Striper fishing. Making up Steve's crew were Neal, Sean, Doug, John & Corrado. Paul got an early start and made his way up to the northern grounds. Paul got into the Bass reads early and put out the Trolling gear. The guy's had no problem catching their 28" t0 43" Limit and added one Over fish (44"). They were not interested in release fishing so they called it a day early. We finished the morning with 7 Keepers. It was another good trip with a long time Bounty Hunter supporter. Steve may be back in November to pick up where he left off today.
10/25/15 Paul ran the Fall Season's first Striped Bass charter today. On board we had the Bob Castor charter. Filling out Bob's crew were Brandon, Pat, Bob, Bill & RJ. We made the ride to the north and caught the start of the outgoing tide. Trolling was the name of the game today and it did not take long to put our first 40" Bass on ice. 20 minutes later we boxed our big fish of the day when a nice 45" Bass went into the box. When the area dried up we moved a few miles and were into a good bite of smaller Bass. The crew put another 5 Bass into the cooler between 33" & 37". We finished the day with 7 Bass. It was a good day with a great crew.
10/24/15 The Bill Zuchero charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Bill's crew were Tom, Amber, Chris, Ron & Jon. We were greeted at the Inlet by a brisk NE wind but conditions were totally fishable. Paul made stops on a few pieces and the crew started to pick 15 to 25 nice size keepers on each stop. After the 4th stop we had our limit catch of 90 Seabass on ice and we called it a day at Noon. Spent an enjoyable morning with a great group. Everyone went home with a bag of Fillets. 5 Spots are still available on the Open Boat Seabass sailing scheduled for Oct. 29th. These fish are already moving so don't miss out. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
10/22/15 Capt. Paul had Don Beshada on board for a brief 4 hour Seabass charter today. Paul made 3 stops and found Seabass on each drop. Don's crew picked thru the shorts and after 3 hours of fishing they had a nice catch of 40 Seabass in the box. We were back at the dock at 11AM with a happy crew. 5 Spots are still available for the Open Boat Seabass trip scheduled for Oct. 29th. Don't miss out on this Inshore action as the Seabass are on the move and the good fishing will not last long. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/19/15 Capt. Paul had the David Tiegs charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Dave Were his dad Ray and brothers Brian & Mike. All 4 were first time Bucktailers and we went thru the usual morning learning curve. It did not matter as the dense Fog and lack of drift which lasted most of the day made for tough conditions. The crew landed several short Fluke a few big Bluefish along with a couple of nice size Seabass. The guys gave it a maximum effort but conditions were against us. This could be our last Fluke trip of the season as the next few days may see some high winds and a rough ocean. We still have a few open dates for Seabass and Striped Bass charters. If your thinking about getting out now is the time to call and book your day.
