06/12/15 The Matt MacSherry charter returned to the Bounty Hunter for their second Seabass trip this month. Along with Matt were his usual crew made up of Mac, Jason, Mick, Gary & Bill. Today's catch did not come easy. The guy's had to work hard for every fish that they put in the box. Paul made stops on several pieces where the guy's would box a few keepers and then have the bite shut down. It was slow frustrating fishing. The reward of the day came when one drop gave up some of the largest Seabass that we have seen this season. The guy's fished hard today and at the end of the day they had boxed their limit catch of 90 Seabass plus several Ling. It was a good day with a long time Bounty Hunter supporter. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips scheduled for July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/11/15 Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Rich Dagostino on board today for a day of Seabass fishing. Along with Rich were sons Paul, Mark and friends Mike, Tom & Mike. Paul decided to stop on 2 pieces that he has not fished in quite a while. It was no surprise when they both showed great readings. The boys went to work and on the first drop put 70 nice Seabass in the box. On our second stop they added 45 more quality Seabass to finish the morning with their limit catch of 90 Seabass plus 15 for the crew,(We have to eat also).

06/10/15 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Keith, Steve, Ginny, Steve, Amy & Henry. Paul got an early start and stayed local. It was obvious from the start that the last 2 days of strong south winds had slowed down the bite. The crew worked hard and as the morning wore on the bites improved. Paul made several moves and the fish count improved with each move.By 12:30PM we had our legal limit of 90 Seabass plus 5 Ling on ice and we called it a day. Another good day with a group of nice people. Spots still remain available for the July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Open Boat Fluke trips.If interested in getting in on one of these trips E-Mail or Call me at 732-323-8700 To reserve a Spot.
06/07/15 Capt. Paul had the Dave Dry charter on board the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Dave were Matt, DJ, Dan, Juan & Issac. Dave has fished for Striped Bass with us for the last couple of years but this was the groups first effort at Seabass fishing. Paul decided to stay local today and we fished the rough bottom. The Seabass cooperated on what was a perfect weather day and the guys picked away at some nice size Seabass on every drop. Once again by 11AM we had a cooler full with a limit catch of 90 Seabass. It was a good day with another great crew. Spots are still available for our scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
06/06/15 We had the John McGrath charter on board today. Joining John were Mike, Ed, Ivan, Fred & Ed. After 5 days of being tied to the dock the East wind finally blew itself out. Paul put the crew on a nice pile and John & the guys proceeded to put over 45 large Seabass in the box. We made 4 moves and by 11:30 AM we had the legal limit of 90 Seabass in the box. Highlight of the day was when Mike doubled up with a large Seabass on 1 hook and a 25 1/2" Fluke on the second hook. A good time was had by all. We will be running Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th.. Don't miss out on the bite. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/31/15 The Bill Zuchero charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Seabass fishing. Along with Bill we had Jon, Ron, Chris, Scott & Walt. We wanted to beat the expected South wind so Paul headed back to the area he fished yesterday. It was no surprise when we had a slow bite in the AM but by mid morning we were into a nice pick of Seabass, Cod & Ling. The crew worked thru the shorts and put together a nice catch of 76 Seabass, 5 Cod and 6 Ling.6 short Cod were released as were 7 Ling. By 2pm the hard South wind was really cranking offshore so we called it a day. It was good fishing with Bill's crew. They will be back for 2 or 3 more charters. The Bounty Hunter will sail Open Boat Fluke trips on July 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. We will be Bucktailing. If your into Fluke fishing e-mail me or give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/30/15 Capt. Paul had the Keith Fredericks charter on board the Bounty Hunter on Saturday. Once again Paul cleared the Inlet into 47 Degree water and the search for warmer water began. The non stop South wind has shut the Seabass bite down to a slow pick. At 11AM we had 3 Seabass in the box and things did not look good. A move into deeper water and Paul found what he was looking for. Good reads with plenty of hungry Seabass on the pieces. Keith's crew went to work and they all enjoyed a non stop bite while putting together a limit catch of 90 Seabass and a couple of Ling and a few Cod. It was a classic bailout and nice to send the guys off with bags of fillets. I will be shortly Posting my July scheduled Open Boat Fluke trips.
