06/14/2016 After 2 days off due to the strong west winds Paul returned to Seabass fishing. On board he had the Todd Sontagh charter. Making up Todd's crew were Alexandru, Angel, Manuel, Roner & Luis. Paul made a few drops on local pieces and the crew picked decent fish on each stop. Shortly after Noon it was decided to call it a day as the boys had a 6 man limit catch of 60 Seabass in the cooler. Everyone had a fun time and we enjoyed fishing with them. Spots are still available for my June 21st, 28th, 29th & 30th Open Boat Striped Bass trips. E-Mail or all me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your Spot.
06/11/2016 Capt. Paul had the Dave Fleming charter on board today. Fishing with Dave were Matt, Andrew, Johnathon, David & Jan. Paul ran north today and as expected we found ourselves in a fleet of boats. We put out the Trolling gear and had our first bump and miss within several minutes. It took a while for our second bump and miss before finally getting a Bass which we pulled the hook on after a brief encounter. Our 4th fish turned out to be a charm as it was handled perfectly and landed after a brief battle. It turned out to be a beauty measuring 50" and tipping the scale at 48 lbs. Being spawned out and having an empty stomach kept it from being a 50 lb. fish. By late morning the south wind came on and with gusts of 25 knots ended the fishing for us. 1 spot is still available on the June 15th Open Boat Striper trip. Call 732-323-8700 if you want the spot.
06/10/2016 The Matt MacSherry charter returned to the Bounty Hunter for a day of Seabass fishing. Making up Matt's crew were Greg, Jayson, Mac & Mick. There was still some residual wind from yesterday and the ocean was still rough until mid morning. Paul fished 3 stops today and had to double anchor on each one to minimize the Roll. That did not stop the fish from biting and the Slop did not stop the crew from catching as they went on to box a boat limit of nice Seabass along with 18 Ling a nice 19" winter Flounder and 2 Keeper Pollock. Its always fun to fish with Matt & his crew and they will be back again next week. 1 Spot is still available for my Open Boat Striper trip on June 15th. If anyone wants the last spot call me at 732-323-8700.
06/09/2016 Paul ran an Open Boat Striped Bass trip today. On board we had Dan, Craig, Eric, Mike, Dan & Garrett. Paul ran to the grounds and found conditions to be a little sporty with the NW wind gusting over 25 knots for most of the day. An effort to drift & live line Bunker did not last long. Paul decided to put out the Trolling gear and it proved to be the right move for us as the guy's went 7 for 12 on big Stripers up to 40 lbs. We had a crew on today that toughed it out in a rough ocean and were rewarded with some great Bass fishing. We are sure they will all be back again. 1 Spot is available for the Open Boat Striper trip scheduled for June 15th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/07/2016 Capt. Paul had another Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Bob and Ramona, Steve and Natalie and Mike and his Son Jeff. Paul set up on 5 pieces over the course of the day and the crew had to work thru the short Seabass in order to get to the larger fish. At days end there were enough quality fish in the box to enable the group to go home with a limit catch of 60 nice Seabass. It was another perfect weather day for catching Seabass and we enjoyed it with a great group. 1 Spot is still available for my June 15th Open Boat Striper Trip and 3 Spots are still available for the June 20th Open Boat Striper trip. Call 732-323-8700 To Reserve your spot.
06/06/16 After 3 years Steve Budnovitch finally got in his Charter. Steve has been cancelled every year since 2014 due to bad weather on every day he had chartered. But today was different as he got in a great trip. Making up Steve's crew were Frank, Gregg & Francis. Paul put the guys on the Bass early. They passed on the Snag & Drop fishing so Paul went right to the Plugs & Spoons. They had a nice steady bite as they finished the day going 7 for 8 on big Bass. We had 3 Unders and 4 Overs with the 2 largest Bass weighing at 35 & 39lbs. The crew caught a perfect weather day and experienced some great Bass fishing. Hope we see them again before another 3 years passes. I am sailing Open Boat Striped Bass trips on June 15th & 20th. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/04/2016 Longtime Bounty Hunter supporter Bill Zuchero was on board today. Along with Bill were his usual cast of players. Matt, Mike, Chris, Tom & Dave. Paul worked a little further offshore today and found the Seabass a little more willing to bite. The Guy's boxed over 30 Seabass on the first stop then continued to add to the catch on every other stop we made. A double check of the count put us at 59 Seabass and it seemed like an eternity to catch Seabass #60. But the guy's finally caught a keeper and we were on our way home with a 6 man Limit Catch. Always fun to fish with this crew. Lot's of BB and laughs. Taking tomorrow off. Will be back at it on Monday for Striped Bass. I will be running a couple more Open Boat Trips for Striped Bass in June. Dates will be posted shortly. Get in on the Bass bite while it lasts. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
