09/15/2013 Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had Bounty Hunter regulars Mike, Paul, Mark & newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Dave. We set out into a brisk NW wind which put a roll on the ocean the further offshore you went. On our first stop we had a 1.6 Knot drift but as the morning wore on the wind diminished and we slowly got down to a .3 Knot drift. The Drift speed did not really affect the Fluke bite as the guy's picked all day. A miscount of the Fluke in the box indicated a limit catch of 20 Fluke. At the dock at days end the actual count was 19 Keepers. We probably realeased 2 or 3 keepers after the miscount, so we missed the limit by 1. Fluke season closes on 9/27. Get in on the few remaining Open Boat trips which will be posted shortly Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/14/2013 If you like fishing for Monster Blues the Bounty Hunter can provide you with all the action you want. As was the case today when Capt. Paul took the Rich Davis charter out for a day of Bluefishing. Along with Rich were his fishing buddies George, Leland and Bill. The morning ocean had a few potholes but we got to the grounds in time to set up on some good bottom. The big Blues wasted no time jumping on our baits and the boys had their hands full for the next 4 hours. When it was decided they had enough we had 50 Monster Blues on ice. We filled both deck fish boxes and one large cooler. The Blue fishing does not get any better than it is right now. If you're interested in booking a trip call me at 732-323-8700. The Blues are here and waiting.
09/13/2013 Capt. Paul did an abbreviated 4 hr. Fluke charter today. On board we had regulars Don, Jerry (BucktailBoy) and first timer Jake. We cleared the Inlet at 6AM and sailed into a calm ocean with little to no wind. Yesterday's 25 Knot south wind dropped the ocean temp. down 7 Degrees from 72 to 65 and that really slowed down the Fluke bite. Jake got his first Fluke ever shorty after we stopped and went on to catch several shorts. Everyone had their share of shorts but keepers were scarce. Spots still are available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 15th & 17th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/11/2013 Paul had Don Beshada on board for a 1 man Fluke charter. This gave Capt. Paul and Tony an opportunity to wet a line. Setting up on rough bottom offshore then moving inshore once the wind came on we enjoyed a daylong bite. At the end of the day the final tally was a limit catch of 15 Fluke on ice while releasing over 60 shorts. It was great fishing with a good customer. The Fluke season is soon coming to an end. Don't miss the bite. Get on one of our Open Boat Fluke trips asap. Next sailings will be on Sept. 14th, 15th, 17th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/08/2013 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat Fluke trip today. As was the case yesterday we had 4 regulars on board Mark, Steve, Doug, Jim and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Robert. Conditions were the same today as yesterday. A nice breeze in the AM with a good 1.4 Knot drift and a slow down in the action towards Noon with only an occasional keeper being boxed. The conditions did not slow down the short Fluke bite as we had well over 60 shorts that were released along with a few large Seabass. At days end we had 15 Keepers on ice. The big fish of the day was Robert's 6 Pounder followed closely by Steve's 5 Pounder. Overall a great day of fishing with one of our best crews to date. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 9th & 14th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/07/2013 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had regulars Joe, Chris, Doug, Steve and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Heidi. The morning fishing was great with a light breeze and a 1.2 knot drift. Only 2 of the group were Bucktailing but all five caught there share of keepers and shorts. Once we had the tide change the action slowed but we still picked an occasional keeper along with plenty of shorts and some beautiful Seabass. The Seabass were released. At the end of the day we had 15 keeper Fluke on ice released well over 40 shorts and over a dozen Seabass. It was a nice day with a nice group of people. Spots are available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 9th, 11th & 14th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
09/02/2013 We had the Dan White charter on board for a day of Bluefishing. Rounding out the crew were Dan's friends Ray, Todd & Mike. All four were new to Jigging Blues so we had a bit of a learning period before the guy's got the hang of it. Overall the fishing was slow. We had plenty of reads but the Blues were reluctant to bite. We picked a few and lost a few. It was not until later in the morning that we got our shot. The guy's put a dozen in the box and lost another dozen or more. Overall a slow day but we had a good time with a great crew. Spots are available for the Open Boat sailing on Saturday Sept. 7th. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
