06/01/2014 Paul had the Abe Coban charter on board today. We got an early start and found the bunker off Belmar. One throw of the net from Capt. Darren and we were on our way. Paul found a good strech of bait and Bass reads between Asbury and Long Branch, so we worked the area all day. It was frustrating to say the least. Bass around the boat for most of the day crashing our baits but no hook up's. Big Bass on the surface around the boat but refusing to commit. Finally we landed our first and only Bass. Stopped on a large school of Bass on the way in did some snag and drop fishing but no takers. Maybe tommorow will be our day.
05/31/2014 Keith Frederick and his crew returned to the Bounty Hunter for their annual Seabass charter. With an early morning brisk north wind and a screaming NE current The Seabass were reluctant to bite early on. As the wind subsided the Seabass turned on and we had good picks on several spots and only small fish on others. Keith's crew worked hard all day and put together a 6 man limit catch of quality Seabass along with 7 Ling. It was not easy fishing but the crew came thru. 2 Spots are still available for the June 3rd Open Boat Seabass trip. If you like Seabass fishing now is the time to go. E-Mail or Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/30/2014 The Matt MacSherry charter returned to the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Matt was his "A" team consisting of Mac, Jason, Shawn and Gary. We sailed into an ocean of 6 to 8 ft. swells but the conditions did not harm the Seabass fishing. Paul made drops on 2 pieces that we have not fished in a long time and both were alive with large Seabass. The crew went to work and by 9:30AM we had boxed a 6 man limit of 90 large Seabass. We then came inshore and put out the Trolling gear hoping to top of our Seabass catch with a Striper or two but all we found was miles of Bunker schools with no sign of any Bass. Seabass fishing does not get any better than it is right now. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Seabass trip on June 3rd. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/27/2014 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Striper trip today. On board were regulars Tom, Walt, Allan, John, Eric and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Jill. The Bunker schools were scattered and difficult to snag but with some help from Capt's Derek & Darren (Fisher Price & Mary Lou Crew)we were on our way. For us it was a morning bite as we put 4 Bass up to 40" in the box. Had several misses and kept a couple of Blues. We put out the Trolling gear for the last hour but had no takers. Spots are still available for the June 3rd & 9th Open Boat Seabass trips. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/23/2014 Capt. Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Keith Taboada on board today. Along with Keith were friends Carl, Gini, Steve, Joe & Jeff. Paul made several drops today and found good life on a few and very little on others. We finally got into an area where the snags were holding pretty good and the charter started to put some quality Seabass in the box. Our last stop was alive and the crew worked hard pulling single Seabass and large double headers. When the bite ended We had a Limit catch of 90 Seabass in the box along with 1 Ling and 1 Bonita. We started for home with an arm weary charter. Always nice to fish with Keith. He has been fishing with us on the Friday before Memorial Day for years. Spots are still Open for the May 25th Open Boat Seabass trip and the May 29th Open Boat Striper trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/22/2014 Joe Dittus returned for the second time this month with his family charter. We got an early start and sailed into a foggy ocean with a steady rain. The first 2 drops did not produce much but after a several mile move we were into a good Seabass bite. Things were going well until the rain increased and we had an hour of thunder and lightning The screaming south current did not help much and slowly
shut down the Seabass bite. Joe and his crew toughed it out picking away and put together a nice catch of 80 quality Seabass, released several Ling and only had to put up with 6 Dogfish. This is a tough crew that always comes to fish hard. Openings are still available for the Memorial Day weekend Open Boat Seabass & Striper trips. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/20/2014 Capt. Paul kicked off his Seabass season with the return of Emily and Don Beshada. Emily as you readers might remember was the 9 year old who showed her fishing ability last year by catching Fluke, Seabass, Stripers & Blackfish. She has not lost her touch as she put a high hook catch of Seabass in the boat today. Emily out fished her Dad and Tony as we finished up with a limit catch of 45 large Seabass. The Seabass are moving in to the Inshore Wrecks & Hangs so now is the time to go while you can still keep 15 fish per Person. Starting July 1st the retention limit will drop to 3 fish / person. Spots are still available for this Sunday's (May 25th) Open Boat Seabass trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve a spot.
