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. Spots are still available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
6/26/2014 Today was a very different day on the Bounty Hunter. Our friend and Bounty Hunter supporter Don Beshada was on board and he came alone. He invited me to fish all day and only keep a good supply of bait handy. I'm on the boat everyday but rarely if ever fish. So it was a rare treat to catch large Seabass, large Tog and Ling. Paul put the boat on the good bottom and Don and I enjoyed an endless bite finishing up with a limit catch of 45 very nice Seabass Over 20 Tog up to 8 lbs which were released and a dozen Ling. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/24/2014 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had 3 Mikes, Ryan, Dwight & Carl. After a wind shift to the SW and yesterday's current dropping out we had a good shot at the Seabass. Paul worked the rough bottom and kept the crew on the Seabass all morning. Around 11AM the south wind started to come on and conditions deteriorated quickly. It really did not matter as by that time the crew had a limit catch of 90 large Seabass on ice along with 16 Ling. It's always fun when you have good fishermen on board. Spots are still available for the scheduled Open Boat Fluke sailings on July 1st, 3rd, 8th & 9th. E-Mail me or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
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.
