05/09/2014 Today we sailed with the Matt MacSherry charter. Along with Matt were the usual cast of players, Mac, Gary, Greg & Jayson. Paul headed north in the early morning Zero visibility fog. After an hours ride we finally found some Bunker with scattered Bass reads and put out the Trolling gear. Within 15 Minutes we had our first Bass in the box. The bite continued until the tide change and then it died. We got back into the reads once we had moving water and finished up with a Limit catch of 10 Bass up to 25 lbs.(Landed by Jason) Along the way we trolled our first Blue of the year so the hoard can't be far behind. Spots are still available for our May 13th & 14th Open Boat Striper trips. The bite is starting to warm up so don't miss the action. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/07/2014 Capt. Paul had another Open Boat Striper trip today. On board we had all Bounty Hunter supporters. Bryan, Alan, Tom. Bill, Mark & Len. We headed north and found a small bird play over scattered reads. Paul chose to put out the Plugs and we had our first Bass within minutes. It was not a mad dog bite but a slow pick of quality fish. The largest fish of the day was a 35 lb. beauty landed by Mark. After we boxed our 12th keeper for a Limit catch the crew decided to not use their Bonus Cards on these big breeders so we headed for home with a happy bunch of guys. Our next Open Boat Striper trips are scheduled for May 13 & 14. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot. It can only get better with each passing day.
05/06/2014 Capt. Paul ran another Open Boat Striper trip today and had regulars Jenna & Chris along with newcomers to the Bounty Hunter Mike, Aaron & Vinoo. Stopped on the Rocks on the way up a did not read much. We put out the Spoons and landed 1 Bass and then it was over. Paul moved up the line and got the word that the wind against the tide conditions were making it tough for the boats on anchor so he decided to put out the Plugs and stay on the Troll. It turned out to be a very slow day as we only added 2 more Bass to the catch. Finishing up with 3 Bass up to 36". We will be back at it on Thursday. It can only get better once this wind subsides.
05/04/2014 Today we headed north again with Bounty Hunter regulars John, Ginny, Joe and his 2 sons Joe and Alex on board. We encountered a wicked wind against the tide condition and after 2 hours without a touch we went up on the Troll. Trolling Plugs the crew picked away slowly at some nice size Bass and put together a nice catch of 8 keepers It's always a nice day when fishing with this crew. 6 Spots are still available for the May 8th Open Boat Bass trip. E-Mail or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your day.
05/03/2014 Had our first day out today. On board we had Joe, Albert, Doug, Chris, Mike and Ed. Paul made the ride up north and set up on some decent reads. The Bass took a while to get started but once they did we were frustrated by pulled hooks and misses. We finally got our first Bass of the season when Joe landed a nice 36" fish. The bass were reluctant to commit on the baits so we had to tough it out with to many fish being missed. We finished the day with 4 Keeper Bass, released several shorts and spent the day with a great crew. Spots are still available for the May 8th Open Boat Bass trip. E-Mail me or call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
12/20/2013 Capt. Paul ended his 2013 season today. We would like to thank everyone who fished with us this year. Your continued support is appreciated. Also, Thank You to the thousands of you that visited our web site. We will start our 2014 season in April, so don't forget to book your charter early. In the meantime enjoy the Holiday Season and we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
12/05/2013 Don Beshada was on board today along with his daughter Emily. Emily wanted to sharpen her Striper catching skills and practice a little C & R. The ocean was calm with a zero visibility Fog. There were plenty of Bass reads but the Bass were more difficult to catch then yesterday. We called it a day at 11AM and headed for home but in spite of the slow bite Emily and Don landed over 25 Bass all of which were released unharmed. Always a good time when Don & Emily are on board. Don will be back to do some Blackfishing. We will not see Emily until the Spring Bass run.
