09/17/2016 Capt. Paul had the Greg Van Nest charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Greg's group were Andy, Don & Eric. Paul got an early start and was one of the early boats on the Bluefish grounds. Setting up on the good reads Greg's crew Jigged 8 "Alligator" Blues between 15 & 20lbs. Switching over to Bait they topped the catch with Mackerel and one 17" Porgy. They also had several large Seabass which were released. We were off to a good start but when the area became crowded the bite slowed for us. There are plenty of Big Blues in the area and we have Weekends and week days available in Sept.& Oct. If catching monster Blues is your thing call me at 732-323-8700 for date availability.
09/10/2016 The Carl Nelson charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Making up Carl's crew were Bill, Dan, Jeff & Danielle. The morning started off as a Fluke charter but it was soon evident that the 4 days of gale force NE winds put an end to the Fluke bite, So, Capt. Paul headed north and put together a mixed bag catch. The charter put together a nice pile of fish which at the end of the day sorted out to be 75 Bluefish up to 4lbs. Over 30 Mackerel, 20 Large Porgies up to 17" in length Plus 2 Bonito.In addition some very nice Seabass were caught and released. We spent the day with a nice crew and everyone went home with bags of fillets.
8/31/2016 The Greg Wynn charter joined Capt. Paul today. Along with Greg were Larry, Louis, Shane ,David & Sean. It did not take long to realize that we were going to be in for a long and tough day. Paul hit all the rough bottom Fluke spots and from the first stop until the last all we seen were short Fluke. Even the Seabass were scarce. Today the fishing was terrible and it was not due to a lack of effort. They just did not bite. The guys were patient and understanding and despite the lack of bites we all had a good day on the water. Final tally 3 Fluke and 1 very unlucky Seabass.
08/28/2016 Capt. Paul had the Joe Cardazone charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Joe's crew were Jim, Andy, Dan, Terry & Mike. We caught a beautiful day to be on the ocean but the fishing was slow. Paul made several stops today and most only produced short Fluke and an occasional Seabass. The crew worked hard but at days end all we could come home with were 4 Fluke the largest at 25" and 7 Seabass. We had a good crew but the Fluke did not cooperate today. We are sailing Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th. Spots are still available so call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve a Spot.
08/16/16 The Mike Cuttitta charter was on board today. Rounding out today's crew were Frank, Eddie, Ron, Jim & Tom. Started the day with little to no drift. The guys picked a couple of shorts and dropped a nice fish at the boat. It really did not look promising so Paul decided to run north where we finally got into some decent fishing. We put 10 nice Fluke in the box and released over 40 shorts. We were looking pretty good until the south wind came on strong and put an end to the bite. Paul tried shallower water but it was a wasted effort. The guys landed a few short Fluke but the day was over for us. We finished with 10 Fluke in the box. Great crew all good Bucktailers and fun to fish with. We scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips for Sept. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th. Get on board. The Fluke Season will soon be closed. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/14/2016 The Frank Ruddy charter joined Capt Paul for a couple of hours of Fluke fishing. Along with Frank were fishing buddies Mark, Jay, Allen & Angelo. Paul got out a little later this morning and when he arrived on the Fluke grounds he joined several other boats that were off to a rough start. There was no wind and with little to no drift we had a tough time getting started. All the guys could do was work their way thru the short Fluke and Skates. The first decent Fluke to hit the deck was a nice 24" fish. When the wind came on later in the morning the guys added 3 more Fluke to the catch along with over 20 shorts and a good number of Skates. With the west wind came the Flies by the hundreds. It got so intense that the crew decided to call it a day and enjoyed the ride home in a comfortable Air Conditioned cabin. I am sailing an Open Boat Fluke trip on Friday Aug. 19th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/13/2016 Paul had the Mike Frenzel charter on board today. Making up Mike's group were Marc, Lisa, Cliff, Paul & Ed. Paul got on the grounds with a few of the early boats and the day started off on the slow side. With no wind and practically no drift the crew picked away on the short Fluke and Skates. They boxed 6 nice Fluke before losing the drift totally. When the wind came on the bite improved and another 7 Fluke were put on ice. Overall it was not a bad day. We went home with 13 Fluke and spent the day with a bunch of nice people. A nice body of Fluke has moved into our area. Now is the time to get out and catch a few of these good eating fish. We are scheduled to sail Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 15th & 19th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
