05/21/15 Don Beshada returned to the Bounty Hunter along with his daughter Emily. Emily was in search of her first big Bass and after our first and only bite of the day hit the Spoon she decided that it would be best if Dad turned the handle. Don did a nice job on the Rod and landed a 47" Bass that weighed in at 36 lbs. Don & Emily will be back in June to get in on some great Seabass fishing. Spots are still available for our scheduled Open Boat Seabass trips on June 3rd & 17th. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/20/15 The Frank Derrico charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Striper fishing. Along with Frank we had Rich, Nick, Mason, Kevin & Russ. Paul got into the bait reads early and it did not take long for Frank to put a 45" Bass weighing 36 Lbs. in the box. We pulled the hook on our second Bass Then spent most of the morning Trolling the bait and Bass reads without any success. Mason added a nice 42" fish for our second Bass and Rich finished the day with a 39" Fish for our third Bass. Along the way we boxed 1 lonely Bluefish. Always a fun day when Frank and his crew are on board. We look forward to their return in June for some great Seabass fishing. Speaking of which there are still Spots Open for the June 3rd & 17th Open Boat Seabass trips. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/19/15 Don Beshada joined Capt. Paul and Tony for a short 4 hour Bass charter. Paul started the day running north in a Pea Soup fog. We did not read any Bass, Blues or Bait. The water clarity was poor and the temp was 56 Degrees. An hour Troll produced one Bass bite but the hook was pulled at boatside. A quick ride to the south got us into 58 degree clean water with no Blue activity an occasional bait read but we did not have any Bass hook ups. We left for home at 11:30 AM and did not get out of the fog until we arrived at the Inlet. 4 Spots are Open on the June 3rd Open Boat Seabass trip and 1 Spot is Open on the June 17th Open Boat Seabass trip. It's a short season so don't miss out. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/17/15 Capt. Paul had the Chris Grogan charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Chris's crew consisted of Jim, Chris, Jim & Sean. The guy's wanted to put a bend in the rods and elected to start with a trip north to get in on the great Bluefish action. Paul got into the 58 degree water and the Blues did not disappoint. Trolling in a Zero visibility Fog they put what they wanted in the box and released the rest. A call from Capt. Rich (Jersey Hooker) that he was into some Bass closer to home and in warm sunshine ended the Bluefishing fast. Paul got in on the end of the tide and went 2 for 4 with 2 nice Bass topping off the box. It was another good day with a great crew. Striper fishing is starting to turn on as more Bass come into our waters. Bass are being caught from Barnegat up to Raritan Bay. Don't miss out. Call 732-323-8700 to get on our scheduled Open Boat Striper trips on May 23rd & 25th.

With a south wind lasting thru the night Paul decided to head north in search of warm water. It was 47 to 49 degrees on the ride north but we hit 57 degrees in the Bay. We put out the Spoons and our first fish was a Bass. Then the Blues moved in and the crew Trolled over 3 Dozen Blues keeping 16 and releasing the rest. Our whistle fish was a nice 39" Bass landed by Pete. We still have Openings on the Open Boat Striped Bass trips scheduled for May 23rd & 25th. Don't miss out on the action.

05/15/15 Long time Bounty Hunter supporter Ed Warters was on board the Bounty Hunter today. Filling out Ed's crew were friends Mike, Bob, Steve, Bob & Mike. Paul made a right at the Inlet this morning and ran to the south. Getting into 57 degree water with an occasional bait read we put out the Spoons. We did not see or catch a Bluefish all day which was OK with the charter. Over the course of the day we had 5 Bass bites with the hooks pulled on 3 fish. Ed landed a nice 43" Bass which weighed in at 26 lbs. but the big fish of the day was hauled in by Mike Richards, It was his Personal Best to date measuring a nice 49" in length and weighing in at 47 lbs. At first glance we thought that we may have had our first 50 pound Bass of the year. Maybe tomorrow? We are running Open Boat Striped Bass Trips on May 23rd & 25th.

It turned out to be a futile effort as the water temp at IBSP was 52 degrees with no signs of bait. An hour of Trolling produced "Zero". After a long ride back to the north they finally found 57 Degree water with some bait reads at the Rocks. Trolling Spoons produced over a dozen large Blues and finally a 22 lb. Striped Bass. 8 Blues were kept and the rest released. We are sailing Open Boat Striped Bass trips on May 23rd & 25th. The 24th is now full.
