06/23/2014 Today the Don Yowell charter was on board the Bounty Hunter. Don could not make the trip due to a business commitment but he sent his fishing friends Hans, Will, Jim, Howard, Joe & Irene. It was a tough day for Seabass fishing as Paul fought a screaming current and a cold bottom temperature all day. 10oz. & 12oz. sinkers barely did the job. The crew toughed it out all day and after a struggle finished up with 24 large Seabass and 35 Ling. The Ling count tells the story. With a wind shift to the south we hope for better conditions tomorrow. Spots are available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/22/2014 The Jenna Polack charter was on board today for a day of Seabass fishing. Along with Jenna were Chris, Mike, Joe, Dan & Rick. Paul spent the day working the rough bottom and Jenna and her crew picked through the short fish to put together a nice catch of 70 quality Seabass and 6 Ling. It was another nice day with a good crew. I will be running Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/20/2014 Capt. Paul had the Keith Gagnon charter on board today. Filling out Keith's group were Neal, Marinda, Drew, Matt & Marty. There was no Bunker to be found this morning. Paul made the slow ride north looking but did not have any success until a few miles north of the Rocks. The crew wasted no time filling the Well and we went Livelining. The fishing was slow and we did not see our first Bass until Noon. It was a nice 36lb. fish landed by Neal. Going on the Troll to finish out the day we were more successful as we Spooned 2 Large fish but both came unbuttoned after a short time on the Spoon. We finished up going 1 for 3 and the Bass in the Box weighed in at 36 lbs. Another great day on the water with another great crew. We hope they return in the Fall.
06/19/2014 Today we had the Devine family charter on board. Ron, Mike, Erin and Kevin. Along with the Devine's was long time Bounty Hunter customer Mike Raimondi. We got another early start and Paul made his way north until he found the schools of Bunker. We gave some early lessons on Snagging & Dropping and it all paid off big time. Every one in the charter fought and landed a large Bass. We finished the morning with 5 Bass the 3 largest weighing in at 44, 42 & 40lbs. We were on our way in by 11AM as the Devines had to start back for Ohio. They said they will be back for the Fall Bass run. We spent the morning with a great family and they made a top notch crew to fish with.
06/18/2014 Capt. Paul finally had the David Nye charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Dave's two previous dates were blown out due to weather conditions. Along with Dave were Susan, George, Carol and Nick. We got an early start and Paul put Dave's crew on 3 drops which were loaded with quality Seabass. The crew had an easy time Loading the fish box with a 5 person Limit Catch of 75 Seabass. We were alerted that some strong winds were moving off the beach and were on our way home shortly after the wind arrived. We spent the morning with a great crew and hope to see them back again. 2 Spots are still available for our Open Boat Seabass trip on June 30th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/17/2014 The Dan Cells charter was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Paul ran north and found the Bunker off Belmar. Dan's group had an easy time filling te live well and we were off to spend a few hours Trolling the Rocks. After yesterday's shut out we were glad to see our first Bass in the box. The Bass was followed by 3 large Bluefish and another 2 Bass that we lost. Anchoring up and Chunking only produced Blues and finally we Livelined in deeper water off Long Branch and added another 2 Bass to the catch. We finished with 3 Bass and 4 Blues. The 2 largest Bass weighed in at 38 and 36 lbs. The Open Boat Seabass trip scheduled for June 24th is now filled. 3 spots are still available for the June 30th Seabass trip.

06/16/2014 We had the Jeff Godlewski charter on board today. Unfortunately there is not to much to report. We missed the very early morning Troll bite up north and by the time we filled the live well so we could Liveline the action was over. The crew gave it a great effort Livelining without a touch then Trolling for a few hours with no takers. Paul decided to put some Seabass in the box and we headed offshore. The guy's put together a small catch fighting a wicked North East current. It was not a good fishing day for us today. Spots are still open for the scheduled Open Boat Seabass trips on June 24th & 30th. Call 7232-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
