07/17/2014 Paul ran his second Open Boat Fluke trip of the week today. On board we had regulars Dwight, Carl, Steve along with newcomers to the Bounty Hunter Al & Dan. The weather settled overnight and the ocean was calm. We still had a residual heave which slowed down the Fluke bite but there was much more life in the ocean. Although we only had 1 keeper Fluke and several shorts the crew put 5 Ling, 5 small Blues and a Boat Limit catch of 21 nice Seabass in the box. The Fluke fishing should show a big improvement as the heave settles down. It was a good day with a crew of good fishermen. Spots are still available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 26th & 30th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/16/14 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board were all regulars Tom, Kyle, Ryan, Jay & Bill. We were greeted by a dense fog as we left the Inlet. A short while later the torrential rains caught up with us. When we got to the rough bottom up north a sreaming north current into a 6 foot heave from the south made catching impossible. We were on the trip from hell. We struggled all morning and the crew gave it a good effort. By noon we had only caught 7 short Fluke. An hour before calling it a day Tom landed our only keeper a 19" Fluke. Thank God we have understanding customers. Spots are available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 26th & 30th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/12/2013 Capt. Paul had the Moosa Aziz charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Moosa and his group never fished for Fluke before and never were on a Charter boat. We left in a dense fog and made our way up to the rough spots. The first hour was a tutorial on how to operate a reel and develope a Bucktail motion. The fishing was slow for us but the crew managed 5 Keepers and released a few shorts. Moosa and his crew decided to call it a day around Noon. It was a maximum effort by a great crew. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on July 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/11/2014 The Matt MacSherry charter was back on the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Matt were Shaun, Kevin, Mac, Greg and Gary. Paul made his way north and started drifting on the rough stuff. We had very little wind but a strong outgoing tide made for a nice drift. The guy's picked away all day and although the fishing was not the greatest they finished up the day with 9 nice Fluke over 10 shorts and a couple of Ling. On the way in Paul made stops on the Seabass grounds and the charter added a boat Limit catch of 24 Seabass to the days total. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on July 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/30/2014 Capt. Paul ran his last Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had regulars Tom & Jay along with newcomers Frank, John & Brendan. We knew we had our work cut out for us as the south wind and current persisted thru the night. Paul made several stops on pieces that read good life but we had very few takers. By 10AM The south wind came on pretty good and the guys had a tough time feeling the bites. By 1:30 it was time to leave the playing field. We finished the day with 50 Seabass and 18 Ling in the box. It was a tough day with a great crew. Spots are still available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 8th & 9th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/29/2014 Today we had the Bill Zuchero charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Capt. Paul got the guy's on the fish early and by 9:30AM we had 45 nice size Seabass on ice along with a dozen Ling. The south wind and current started to come on and we could see the bite was beginning to slow down. Each move was starting to produce less. The crew did not give up as we made several moves during the course of the day they gave it a maximum effort and finished up with 80 quality Seabass along with 28 Ling and 1 Winter Flounder. Tomorrow is our last Open Boat Seabass trip until Sept. We hope the south wind and current subside. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th.

06/28/2014 The Guy Rogers charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. We got an early start and Paul put Guy's crew on the first 2 pieces that were alive with big Seabass. With a couple of newbies in the group it took a while to get them in tune but once they did the big fish were flying into the box. When the bite slowed we finished the day drifting on the hard bottom. Guy's crew finished up with a 6 person limit catch of 90 Seabass and 15 Ling. We also had several Tog and a couple of Porgies which were released. It was another good weather day and we enjoyed fishing with a great group. They will be back for the Fall Striper run.
