05/19/2016 We ran an Open Boat Striped Bass trip today. On board we had John, Jessica, Mike, Nick & Eric. Paul ran a few miles north and although he did not find any Bunker or Bass he got in on a good Bluefish bite. The group Jigged over 40 Blues keeping 10 and releasing the rest. A ride of a few miles got us out of the Blues and into the Bunker. Putting out the Spoons the Bass fishing was slow until a rod took a good bend and started to peel lie. It was Eric's turn on the rod and everyone knew he had a quality Bass on the line. It was our only Bass for the day but it was a good one. It was 51" long had a Girth of 28" and tipped the scales at just under 51 lbs. She was Spawned out but had 4 very large Bunker in her stomach. I am sailing Open Boat Seabass Trips on May 26th & 31st and June 1st & 2nd. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/17/2016 Today We had the Dan Cells charter on board the Bounty Hunter. Making up Dan's crew were Brandon, Charlie, & Ron. Paul decided to sail south and see if there were any Bass coming up from the south. We got into the Bunker reads and put out the Spoons. After a couple of hours of Trolling we had nothing to show for our effort. Switching over to Snag & Drop fishing was not productive either. A final effort with the Spoons in deeper water saved the day for us as we went 2 for 3 on a couple of nice Bass. The 3rd Bass was lost at the transom. It was a calm day on the ocean with just an occasional shower and it was fun fishing with Dan's crew. I am running Open Boat SEABASS trips on May 26th & 31st also on June 1st & 2nd. Spots are still available. E-mail or call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/16/2016 The Chris Cameroni Charter was on board today. Joining Chris were Carmine, Pete, Anthony, Chris & Jack. We cleared the Inlet expecting the wind to decrease as the day went on. Paul put out the Spoons and within an hour we had our first Bass which measured at 47" and weighed in at 39 lbs. By mid morning the wind came on and we found ourselves in a full blown Gale with winds of 30 + knots. It was a bit sporty for the charter and Trolling a course was difficult. We called it a day early and were back at the dock by mid day. I am running Open Boat SEABASS trips on May 26th & 31st and June 1st & 2nd. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/15/2016 The John Carlson charter joined Capt. Paul for a day of Striped Bass fishing. Along with John were friends Lewis, Mark, Chris, John & Jack. Paul went back to the area where he read the Bass yesterday and found that all the Blues had left. The only fish in the area were Bass. The Spoons were deployed and they did not disappoint as all the Bass landed were large. We finished with 5 Bass. The smallest was 38" and the largest was 46". The weights ranged from 25lbs. up to 40 lbs. for today's big fish. It appears a body of Bass is moving up the beach and if the Blues stay offshore we should have some decent fishing for the next few weeks. I am Running Open Boat SEABASS trips on May 26th & 31st and June 1st & 2nd. Some spots still remain Open. Call me at 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/14/2016 The Katy Rudnick charter was on board today. Along with Katy were Joel, Michael, Nancy, Jeff & Doug. All 6 were new to Striped Bass fishing and were looking forward to landing a Bass.
Paul worked north of our Inlet and had scattered reads of Bass & Blues. Pulling Spoons Katy had her first shot at a Bass and landed a nice size under. The Blues then moved in and provided most of the action. Another couple of Bass were hooked up but unfortunately hooks were pulled at the Transom. We finished with 1 Bass landed over 15 Blues while keeping 8 and releasing the rest. It was a nice day on the water and we got to spend it with a nice family. I am Sailing Open Boat SEABASS trips on May 26th & 31st and June 1st & 2nd. Spots are still available. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
05/13/2016 The Matt MacSherry charter was on board today. Making up Matt's crew were Mac, Jason, John, Gary and Mick. It was not an easy day as we had morning Fog, Afternoon rain and Bass & Blues that did not bite until the end of the day. Paul trolled many miles to no avail as the Bass had lockjaw until late afternoon. Only then did we get a couple of bites which came on Tournament Grade Tackle Spoons. The boys landed 2 nice bass and did not go home empty. We fished ocean side today and the bites came to the north. We will be running Open Boat SEABASS trips on May 26th & 31st and June 1st & 2nd, If you want to get in on some good fishing call 732-323-8700 to reserve a spot. A few openings are still available.
05/10/2016 Today we had the Bill Mulliniks charter onboard the Bounty Hunter. Bill is a long time Bounty Hunter supporter and has been fishing with us over 20 years. We got an early start and headed to the northern grounds. The early boats were having a tough time as the Bass were scarce and even the Blues had left the area. Paul put out the Mojo's and it took a while for our first bite, It was a Blue that was lost boat side. Our first Bass was short and was released. There was not much action for most of the day. We finished up with 1 Bluefish in the box and beat the Skunk when we boated a whistle fish Bass which weighed in at 26 lbs. Just was not our day but we had lot's of company.
