11/13/2016 Paul had the Doug Ruppel charter on board today. Doug had his friends Kevin, Steve, Antonio & Reynaldo along to fill out his crew. After the last 2 days of slow fishing Paul was on his way up to the Bay when he was alerted to a decent Bass bite going on north of Asbury. He pulled up short and it proved to be a good move. Paul had the guys Casting Shads, & Livelining and both methods produced a nice catch. He ended the day Trolling Spoons and the TGT Yellow Spoons did not disappoint as we finished with a Boat Limit of Unders up to 42 7/8" while releasing another 8. Along the way the crew added 6 Big Blues to the catch. It's been a while since we fished with Doug and it was nice to spend the day with an old friend.
11/12/2016 Sailed today with the Bill Zuchero charter. Filling out the team were regulars Matt, John, Mike, Walt & Ron. It was another tough day for us as we found the schools of Bait but the Bass were reluctant to bite. As was the case yesterday a few hours of Livelining produced 1 Striped Bass and then the bite was over. Ran up to the area around the Rocks and got into some great Bluefish reads, so we put out the Spoons and the guys finished the day fighting the Big Blues. They took a few home and released the rest. Hopefully the bite will improve tomorrow. Stand By.
11/11/2016 Capt. Paul had the Dave Dry charter on board today. Along with Dave were Steve, Carlo, David M. & Armondo. The crew snagged their Bunkers and loaded up the Well in the AM. After getting on some decent reads a couple of hours of Snag & Drop fishing produced a few run offs and one 42" Bass. Setting up on some new reads we put out the Spoons. After several bumps and misses we finally boated a nice 40" Bass. That was it for the day. The brisk NW wind made it a little snappy once you got out to the Line. So staying close was the smart thing to do. We will back at it tomorrow.
10/30/2016 Capt. Paul had the Wilson Palm charter on board today. Making up Wilson's crew were Dino, Ken, Jason, Scott & Joe. Paul worked a few small snags offshore that always held good Seabass life in the past and we were not disappointed. Each stop produced a good number of quality Seabass, plenty of shorts and the occasional Dogfish. When the day ended Wilson's crew had put a 6 man Limit catch of 90 Seabass on ice along with a couple of Trigger fish. It was a perfect weather day and we spent it with a good crew.
10/29/2016 Long time Bounty Hunter supporter Keith Frederick was on board today. Rounding out Keith's crew were Rick, Jefferey, Krystof & Keith T. Paul fished a little deeper today and had no problem finding the life. The short Seabass were active again but today there were some nice keeper size Seabass in the mix. The bite was steady until the wind came on late in the morning them conditions deteriorated. It really didn't matter as the charter had their 5 Man Limit of 75 Seabass in the box. We were back at the dock by 1PM. We had a good day with a great crew. They will be back again.
10/26/2016 Finally, After several days of non stop NW winds we caught a break in the weather. Paul had the Joe Morris charter on board today for our first Seabass attempt since Opening Day. Along with Joe were John, George & Zak. The first couple of stops were uneventful as the ocean still had a bit of a roll. We only picked a few keeper Seabass but the ever present 12.9999" size fish were active. As the wind decreased the bite improved and the 4 man crew went on to Box there limit catch of 60 Seabass along with a couple of Triggers. It was a fun day with a good crew. Looking forward to our next trips this weekend.
10/08/2016 Capt. Paul had the Blake Reber charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Blake's crew consisted of Liz, Chuck, Bob & Ron. Paul got the usual early start and anchored on the edge of the Hole. It only took a few minutes of chumming and we were into a non stop bite of "Alligator" Blues, some of which reached the 20 lb. mark. Bait and Jigs produced the catch. When we had 60 Blues on ice the crew went into a brief release mode and we then called it a day at 1PM. If you enjoy fighting big Bluefish now is the time to call and reserve your date. Weekend and weekdays are still available in October. I will be sailing Open Boat SEABASS trips on Oct. 25th & Oct. 28th. E-Mail or Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
