08/25/2013 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Fluke trip today. On board we had regulars Tom, Mike, Paul & John. Today was a day to put a bend in the rod all day long. There were plenty of Fluke around but not many keepers. Paul worked inshore with only short Fluke cooperating. A move offshore got us into steady action. The guys released over 100 short Fluke but only put 4 keepers in the box. Along with the Fluke the Skates and Sea Robins were plentiful. Spots are now available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Sept. 1st, 4th & 7th. We are getting close to the Fluke season closure so call today to reserve your spot.
08/23/2013 Don Beshada along with his daughter Emily and Matt MacSherry returned to the Bounty Hunter for another day of Fluke fishing. Conditions were good and we had a nice drift. The short Fluke dominated the day but the crew fished their way thru the shorts and put together a nice catch of 7 keepers. The largest of which was landed by Don and tipped the scale at 7Lbs. The second largest Fluke weighed in at 5lbs. Over 20 shorts were released. It was another fun day on the water with 3 very good anglers. They will be back next Friday and will be looking to top the 7 Pounder. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 25th & 29th. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/22/2013 Jim & Maria Richardson brought their children Tommy, Molly & Foster out with Capt. Paul for their first ever charter trip and their first attempt to catch some Bluefish. We got out to the grounds to find that the Blues were being finicky today. Even so the kids had a good time fighting the Blues and in the process losing more than they caught. After 3 hours the youngsters were burned out and Mom and Dad decided it was time to call it a day. It was a pleasant experience with a great family. I'm sure they will be back to give the Seabass and Stripers a try. Spots are still available for the Aug. 25th & 29th Open Boat Fluke trips. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/20/2013 The Dave Fleming charter was on board the Bounty Hunter for a day of Bluefishing. Paul was the first boat on the grounds and the Blues were filling the box within a few minutes. Dave's crew had their 75 fish limit within the first 2 hours so after another hour of C & R we decided to try for Fluke on one of the offshore lumps. The guys drifted baits and the action with Fluke in the 15" to 17" class was non stop. The crew released over 40 while managing to put 5 Keepers in the box. A great day on the water with Dave and his buddies. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 25th & 29th. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/13/2013 We had The Marty Ingram charter on board on Tuesday. Along with Marty were his three sons Ryan, Ken & Dan. We were the first boat on the grounds and got into the Blues within a few minutes. We were racing the weather as there were some severe Rain and Lightning events headed our way. An hour into our bite the rain was on us. It started slowly but in a short time we were fishing in a Monsoon. The guys held their ground and only called it a day after they had their limit catch of 60 Blues and 1 Bonita (Our first of the year) The ride home was a wet one and filleting the catch in the pouring rain was not nice. Sorry, No dock picture today but we did get the guys to stick their heads out of the cabin door for 1 shot. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 19th & 21st. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/12/2013 Paul ran his 3ed Open Boat Fluke trip within the past week. On board we had Bounty Hunter regular Mark Kacek along with newcomers Jim, Wayne, Bill & Lou. Paul set up on the rough bottom north of our Inlet. We had no wind for most of the day and a very slow drift (.3 to .6 Knots) We had a steady pick of shorts everywhere we moved with the occasional Keeper. At days end the crew had 10 nice Fluke on ice and released over 2 dozen shorts. The largest Fluke of the day was a 25" fish weighing in at 6 Lbs. It was caught by Bill. Great bunch of guys. Lot's of laughs and BB. Hope to see them return in the near future. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 15th, 19th & 21 st.

08/11/2013 We had Don Beshada and his daughter Emily out for a few hours today. Emily has done well with Stripers, Fluke & Seabass so we wanted to see how she would do on her first ever Bluefish effort. It's obvious the youngster has the moves as she Jigged a few dozen Blues with no effort. After an hour of C & R we headed Inshore to try for Fluke. It was slow fishing but Don & Emily managed 2 keepers and several shorts. By 11AM we called it a day and headed for home. Spots are still available for the Open Boat Fluke trips on Aug. 15th, 19th & 21st. E-Mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
