The Lucky Charmers prove that all that’s needed for successful bluefin tuna fishing is a lot of luck and some charm. They claim Dave and Gary of Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters had the charm – they of course had the luck to hook and land this beautiful 750lb giant bluefin tuna out of Gloucester, MA.

Lucky Charmers Land 750lb Giant Bluefin Tuna on Tuna HunterGreat work for a team that had not fished for bluefin tuna before.  They didn’t realize at the time how lucky there were – they broke the northeast tuna dry spell and started a 3-day streak for Tuna Hunter. w/e look forward to fishing with this crew again.

The Tuna Hunter difference is knowing bluefin tuna and knowing the waters off of Cape Ann and beyond. Captain Gary has it in his bones – they don’t call him Tuna Hunter for nothing.

We can’t quite believe it has been 13 years – for Tuna Hunter it has been a pleasure to host the annual Nivens family summer Bass Bash.  Striped Bass fishing this season has taken a return to the days of fishing along the rocks and shores of Gloucester and Rockport coast and islands.

A few more photos of Nippon TV’s “Team Tuna”. Congratulations to all – the anglers, the producers, the camera crew, the Bounty Hunter crew who carried the cameras, and Teruko and all the land crew who helped so much in preparations.

And special thanks to the successful anglers – no language barrier here.  The crew just “nailed their tail” to the Tuna Hunter tail post.

A popular Japanese comedy TV show by Nippon TV filmed an episode aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters last weekend. With 5 Japanese and one translator, things got interesting when Tuna Hunter hooked a lively giant bluefin. By some miracle, enough directions were passed through the translator to direct the show’s three comedians to fight and land a 350 pound bluefin in a 2 hour battle.

We have video and more photos coming, but this photo shows the Tuna Hunter and Nippon TV “Tuna Team” just after tail wrapping their giant bluefin.

Congratulations to all of the production teams and the comedians – the talent had never landed a fish before, let alone a giant bluefin. Many thanks to Teruko and Yumi for preparations and those much needed translations.

The Pennsylvania Leek Diggers had a great off shore Cod and haddock trip on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.

The men all had sore arms and full coolers of tasty fresh fish.

Good fishing to all!

The Redfield Rednecks enjoyed a weekend of cod and haddock fishing aboard Tuna Hunter in early May.  The catch was steady, with breaks for tide changes.  Great cod and haddock for eating, and great time with friends.
Now is the best time for Gloucester cod and haddock – call Tuna Hunter at 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com to reserve your charter. We look forward to fishing with you.

We know it is really spring when Pavel and Anatoli join us for a full day Gloucester cod and haddock fishing.  Always plenty of smiles, plenty of stories, and plenty of cod and haddock.

This recent trip yielded more haddock than cod, but no complaints there, we have osme tasty dinners ahead.

We wish our friend Anatoli best wishes and speedy recovery – we hope to have you back fishing with us soon! Pavel, you need to reel in twice as much fish now.

Join Tuna Hunter for your Gloucester cod fishing charter – we are ready to go, 7 days a week. Call us at 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for the latest openings.

Spring cod and haddock fishing is a right of passage for Tuna Hunter – another year, ready to go. Everything is waxed and polished, the reels are shiny, the rods are ready to go after a winter sleep.

All you anglers know its time for hauling some huge cod and haddock over the rail. Beautiful spring days – even the cloudy ones – are wonderful on the water when you are fishing with your buddies.

Call 978-407-1351 to reserve your Gloucester fishing charter aboard Tuna Hunter – We look forward to fishing with you.

With all the hookups this season, we got or mermaid practicing on retrieving those bluefin that just might otherwise have got away.  She’s working her way up to the giants – perhaps by next year.


Delivery with a smile – Good fishing to you!
While we cannot deliver every bluefin tuna this way, we’ll certain try to deliver  the best bluefin tuna experience possible.   Call Tuna Hunter at 978-407-1351 or captain@tunahunter.com to join us!

Giant bluefin tuna fishing is in full swing out of Gloucester aboard Tuna Hunter as we continue fishing every day weather allows and anglers are willing.

Last week we had a string of small-medium bluefin, just the right size for tag and release, or, to take home for some (lots) of sushi as the Thomas Chase party can attest. They caught this beauty on the morning tide on live bait. A great way to start off a fishing charter ~ get a big one in the boat early.

 Tuna Hunter will continue bluefin tuna charters as long as the tuna are here, through October and into November at least.  We have a few openings left, plus some shared charters OCt 23, 24, 25.  Call 978-407-1351 or captain@tunahunter.com to join us for your fattie.
