05/22/2017 The Clay Wurmster Charter was on board today. Along with Clay were Bill, Cheryl, Clint & Don. This was their first Striped Bass charter and they were anxious to go despite the rain and marginal conditions. We cleared the Inlet into a pouring rain and slight roll out of the east. Paul ran back to where we had them yesterday and we put out the TGT Spoons. The reads were spread out and the bites came slow but over the course of a few hours the group managed to put 3 nice Bass into the boat. It became obvious by mid morning that Ocean Motion was taking it's toll on the group and they requested that we fish a short day.
05/21/2017 Today we had long time supporter Al Belmont on board. Rounding out Al's crew were Alex, Tony, Matt & Ashton. We got into the Bass early boxing 3 nice Overs up to 40lbs. Suddenly the Blues came on strong and the boys battled over 3 dozen large ones on Spoons, casting Plugs & Jigs. After the slack tide we made a little wiggle that's been holding Bass and put two more Overs and one unlucky 42" in the box. The guys only kept a few Blues for the Smoker and released the rest. It was a beautiful day on the water and Albert and Alex both landed quality Bass. I'm sure they will be a little sore in the morning.
05/19/2017 Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Ed Warters on board today. Filling out Ed's crew were Bob, Steve, Tony, Charles & Steve. It did not take long to see that the previous days South wind and current had slowed dawn the Bass bite. Paul worked the area from the north down to Lavallete with very few reads of Bass or Bait. Working the Mojos and Spoons we were able to save the day when each rig landed a nice Striper. The largest at 48" followed by a nice 44" Bass. It was a tough day with a good crew.
05/16/2017 Today we had Don Beshada and his buddy Steve out for some Bass fishing. We went right back at it with the TGT Spoons and in a short while had a double header in the boat consisting of a couple beautiful 47", 42# and 44", 37# Stripers. After a few more single bites we had our limit of Overs. We also released a 46" Bass to swim another day. We called it quits after that. The boys told me that last weeks fish made some awesome Tacos and this weeks fish should do the same. Open Boat Striper trips are scheduled for May 17th, 18th, 22nd, 23rd & 25th. Don't miss out on a great bite. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/15/2017 Paul had the Jim Sears charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Making up Jim's crew were friends Jay, Mark & Bill. Fortunately Paul got on some good reads a little tighter to the beach. Unfortunately the Blues had moved back into the area and the Bass were scarce. Switching over to light tackle and casting Ava's and Spinners the Blues supplied the action. Jim's crew boxed all the Blues they needed then went into the release mode. Giving one last shot with the Spoons we managed to put 1 Bass into the boat then we called it a day. A tough weather day with a good crew. Check out our Open Boat Striper schedule on the "Open Boat Charter" page of our Website. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/10/2017 The Bill Manos charter was on board today. Filling out Bill's group were Phil, Rob, Brad, Marcus & Robert. Paul ran to the spot where he had them yesterday and was on the Bass early. Putting out the Spoons it did not take long to put our first Bass in the box. It was not a mad bite but a steady pick throughout the day. The guys had 10 hookups for the day but only managed to get 5 Bass to the boat. The largest of which tipped the scale at 35 lbs. We should have put a few of our misses in the box but some days that's how fishing is. We still have days available for Charter or Open Boat Striper fishing. If you're looking to get in on this great fishing give me a call at 732-323-8700
05/09/2017 Today we had an abbreviated morning trip with one of our favorite customers. Paul ran back to the spot that was holding Bass yesterday. The Bass reads were solid. but the large Blues were gone. Since our time was limited we went right to the TGT Spoons and they did not fail. The Bass were on immediately and we were on our way home within 2 1/2 hours. We finished with 5 Bass, 2 Unders and 3 Overs the largest of which checked in at 46" and topped the scale at 40 lbs. It was a short day but the fishing was good. Now lets hope it stays that way. Scheduled Open Boat Trips are listed on our Open Boat Charters page. Check us out then call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
