Cod Fishing ~ The Big Dogs from Moriah

The Big Dogs from Moriah – Cod Fishing
on Tuna Hunter!

The Big Dogs from Moriah took in some Gloucester Cod & Haddock Fishing on Saturday aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.

Though a bit foggy above the surface underneath the fish paid no mind. Cod fishing was prime all morning, with cod to 15 and 20 pounds. The cod were hitting on jigs and teasers for the most part. Clams produced some fish in the AM, but jigs ruled.

n the afternoon, as a low pressure moved in, fishing slacked off a bit, but a switch of spots and techniques produced results, this time more haddock than cod, with bait being the favorite over jigs.

Stellwagen Bank abounds with sand eels, and the cod are filling up on them as they please. Cod and haddock fishing will remain strong into the summer months. Migrating striped bass will be arriving in Gloucester soon – May marks the usual arrival for the Geiger Birthday Bash – there are always stripers for this important outing. Bluefin tuna fishing will commence as soon as these beauties move up the coast. Can’t wait!

Spring Break Fishing for Tuna Hunter in the Florida Keys

Spring Break
Tuna Hunter!

In an unprecedented spring break maneuver, Tuna Hunter was bribed down to Islamorada in the Florida Keys for a few days of awesome fishing for bonefish, tarpon, dolphin and sailfish.

While it was hard to leave Gloucester Cod & Haddock Fishing, the timing was perfect to avoid some bad weather and high winds in the north.

Might as well bend a rod somewhere!
High winds made for some challenging boating, but the desire to fish prevailed. Offshore, trolling to locate pods of dolphin, then casting to hook additional turquoise wonders. Nothing beats the acrobatics of a snared dolphin … twists ,flips, twirls and turns … incredible!

Except, perhaps, to hook into a sailfish. That acrobatics show is also incredible. And for us New Englanders, a sailfish is a treat.

We are back in Gloucester! A short, productive trip to the Keys has us jazzed for full-time New England cod & haddock fishing. Tuna have been spotted off of Virginia, and they are headed our way. Striped Bass will be moving in shortly, followed by those bluefin tuna … yeah!

Call or email to our latest openings – we look forward to seeing out on the water – our clients make our season enjoyable!

Good fishing to you!
