06/03/2014 Capt. Paul ran his last scheduled June Open Boat Seabass trip today. On board we had Tom, Ryan, John, Bob, Ed & Joe. All Bounty Hunter customers. The strong south winds from yesterday slowed the Seabass bite down. We made 4 drops today only to find life on 3. On the first two we had a sluggish bite boxing 53 Seabass. The 3rd stop produced zero. On the 4th and final stop the bottom was alive with large Seabass. The boys went to work and filled the cooler with 37 more quality Seabass finishing with a 6 man limit catch of 90 Seabass. We left them biting and started for home. Another good day with a good crew of regulars that know how to Bottom fish.
06/02/2014 Long time Bounty Hunter customer Steve Senff was on board today. Along with Steve were Rob, Lou, Gene, Tom & Steve. The Bunker were easier to snag today and we had 40 pieces in no time. Running up to the spot that we struggled on yesterday we found the area barren of bait & fish. Paul ran a few miles to the south and set up on some good reads. We had our first Bass of the day within a half hour of fishing and what A Bass it was. For the second time in less than 2 weeks we broke the 50 lb. mark when Lou landed a 51lb. beauty. It was his PB and he chose to keep the fish. She was a spawned out female measuring 53 1/2" in length. Over the next few hours we had over 10 pick ups with out a hook set but in between the misses we managed to put another 5 large Bass in the boat. The second largest fish was a 38 lb. Bass boated by Steve Senff. The remaining 4 Bass were all over 20 lbs. We spent the day with a great crew and had a good time with lots of laughs. We are booked every day from tomorrow until the last week of June. We will resume Open Boat Trips in July.
05/31/2014 Keith Frederick and his crew returned to the Bounty Hunter for their annual Seabass charter. With an early morning brisk north wind and a screaming NE current The Seabass were reluctant to bite early on. As the wind subsided the Seabass turned on and we had good picks on several spots and only small fish on others. Keith's crew worked hard all day and put together a 6 man limit catch of quality Seabass along with 7 Ling. It was not easy fishing but the crew came thru. 2 Spots are still available for the June 3rd Open Boat Seabass trip. If you like Seabass fishing now is the time to go. E-Mail or Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/30/2014 The Matt MacSherry charter returned to the Bounty Hunter today. Along with Matt was his "A" team consisting of Mac, Jason, Shawn and Gary. We sailed into an ocean of 6 to 8 ft. swells but the conditions did not harm the Seabass fishing. Paul made drops on 2 pieces that we have not fished in a long time and both were alive with large Seabass. The crew went to work and by 9:30AM we had boxed a 6 man limit of 90 large Seabass. We then came inshore and put out the Trolling gear hoping to top of our Seabass catch with a Striper or two but all we found was miles of Bunker schools with no sign of any Bass. Seabass fishing does not get any better than it is right now. Spots are still available for our Open Boat Seabass trip on June 3rd. Give me a call at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/27/2014 Capt. Paul ran an Open Boat Striper trip today. On board were regulars Tom, Walt, Allan, John, Eric and newcomer to the Bounty Hunter Jill. The Bunker schools were scattered and difficult to snag but with some help from Capt's Derek & Darren (Fisher Price & Mary Lou Crew)we were on our way. For us it was a morning bite as we put 4 Bass up to 40" in the box. Had several misses and kept a couple of Blues. We put out the Trolling gear for the last hour but had no takers. Spots are still available for the June 3rd & 9th Open Boat Seabass trips. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/23/2014 Capt. Paul had long time Bounty Hunter supporter Keith Taboada on board today. Along with Keith were friends Carl, Gini, Steve, Joe & Jeff. Paul made several drops today and found good life on a few and very little on others. We finally got into an area where the snags were holding pretty good and the charter started to put some quality Seabass in the box. Our last stop was alive and the crew worked hard pulling single Seabass and large double headers. When the bite ended We had a Limit catch of 90 Seabass in the box along with 1 Ling and 1 Bonita. We started for home with an arm weary charter. Always nice to fish with Keith. He has been fishing with us on the Friday before Memorial Day for years. Spots are still Open for the May 25th Open Boat Seabass trip and the May 29th Open Boat Striper trip. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/22/2014 Joe Dittus returned for the second time this month with his family charter. We got an early start and sailed into a foggy ocean with a steady rain. The first 2 drops did not produce much but after a several mile move we were into a good Seabass bite. Things were going well until the rain increased and we had an hour of thunder and lightning The screaming south current did not help much and slowly
shut down the Seabass bite. Joe and his crew toughed it out picking away and put together a nice catch of 80 quality Seabass, released several Ling and only had to put up with 6 Dogfish. This is a tough crew that always comes to fish hard. Openings are still available for the Memorial Day weekend Open Boat Seabass & Striper trips. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
