08/15/2012 After a week off Capt. Paul got back to Bluefin fishing. On board we had Frank, John, Mike (CloudFlyer), Dave and Trevor. Paul set up on some good bait reads and worked a small area for most of he day. While many boats spent the day moving in search of the Tuna, Paul stayed on the Lump with the bait and it paid off. The crew went 5 for 8 on Bluefin up to 43". It was not easy fishing as the guy's worked the Spanko Jigs non stop. Their efforts are evident in the attached pictures. It was a great day with a hard working crew. The Open Boat Bluefin trips for Aug. 17th, 21st & 23rd are now filled. The next Open Boat Bluefin trip is scheduled for Monday Aug. 27th. Call today to reserve your spot.
08/04/2012 Capt. Paul had the Paul Grosso charter out for a day of Bluefin Tuna fishing. We finally caught some nice weather for a change and had no problem locating the bait and plenty of Tuna in the area. The problem today was the Tuna just did not bite in good numbers. We had 2 hook ups during the day. The first came unbuttoned after a brief fight. On the second we had leader failure after a short battle. That was it for the day. We will be out of commission for a few days to do some major engine repairs. Then it's back off to the Tuna grounds. Spots are still available for the Aug. 21st & 23rd Open Boat Tuna trips. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
08/03/2012 It was another big day on the Bluefish grounds with the Brian Corcoran charter. Once again we got there early and Paul set up on some solid reads. 2 minutes after the chum hit the water it was game on as the crew quickly filled the fish box with over 30 big Blues. We then went into the release mode but by 11AM the guy's had enough action for one day and decided they wanted to go in. The Bluefish bite does not get any better than it is right now. If fighting the big ones is your thing now is the time to get out and enjoy the action. Spots are still available for the Aug. 21st & 23rd Open Boat Bluefin trips. Call today to reserve your spot.
08/02/2012 Capt. Paul returned to Bluefishing with the Vincent Zola charter. We were the first on the offshore fishing grounds in search of the Big Blues and it did not take long to find them. We drifted on solid reads and once the chum & chunks hit the water the bite was on. It was a bite the charter will remember as the Blues bit non stop for 4 hours. Once the fish box was filled we went into the release mode and by days end had released over 100 big Blues. With the crew arm weary by Noon we decided to call it a day. Will be back at it tomorrow. The Aug. 19th Open Boat Bluefin trip is now full. Spots still are available for the Aug. 21st & 23rd sailings. Call 732-323-8700 to reserve your spot.
07/31/2012 We finally got in our first Bluefin trip of the season on Tuesday. On board we had (2) Joe's, Kevin, John, Peter Z and Eric (In Pursuit). We cleared the Inlet at 3:30AM into a calm ocean and headed south to the Tuna grounds. By the time we started to fish the weather took a turn for the worse and we spent the day drifting in a snappy ESE wind and a rough ocean. We were the only boat out today and Paul spent the first 2 hours searching for bait and Tuna reads. We finally settled in an area that looked like a target rich environment and the crew went to work. Although they got knocked around for most of the day they all toughed it out and went 6 for 10 on nice Bluefin. Pete Z put the Under fish (43") in the boat and went 3 for 4 followed by Eric's 2 for 4 and Joe's 1 fish at 44" which was released. John fought a Brown Shark for 10 minutes that took a Pink Spanko jig but lost it at boatside. All the fish were caught on Pink & Glo Spanko Jigs, Hammered Chrome Diamond Jigs and Silver Stingos. We had an opportunity to field test a new Rod built by Jersey Tackle. It performed very well and was built on a 250 Gram Bushido Blank at 6'-6" in length. Our next Open Boat Bluefin Tuna trips are scheduled for Aug. 19th, 21st & 23rd. Call 732-323-8700 today to reserve your spot.
07/29/2012 The Bill Zuchero charter was on board the Bounty Hunter for a day of Seabass fishing. Along with Bill were fishing buddies Walt, Ron, Mike & Chris. The guy's wanted to take their last shot at the Seabass and knew the fishing was slowing down but Paul put them on some nice reads and after fishing thru several dozen short fish they were able to put together a nice catch of 51 large Seabass along with 2 nice Fluke. Another 6 Fluke were released. It was a good day with a great crew. Always fun to fish with Bill and the guys.
07/28/2012 With 2 Bluefin Tuna trips cancelled this week due to the nasty wind conditions we have been having Capt. Paul returned to the Inshore fishery and did our first Bluefish charter of the year. On board we had the Chris Cameroni charter and once we arrived on the offshore grounds it did not take long to have the big blues in our slick. Chris and his crew had a non stop bite on Blues in the 10 to 15lb. class. When they caught all they wanted we went into the release mode for a few hours. You could not ask for better Bluefish fishing than we had today. Around 1PM the guys had their fill and we called it a day. The Aug. 13th, 15th & 17th Open Boat Bluefin trips are now full. Look for our next sailings which will be posted shortly.
