Pineapple Gang – Gloucester Cod Charter Blowout

The Pineapple Gang takes their cod fishing charters seriously. So serious, that this is their 8th year cod fishing aboard Tuna Hunter. Every year they are well prepared, well-dressed and have good success. They are all good anglers, and passionate about their fishing.


This year’s trip was no exception, and the fish cooperated – a non-stop blitz of large cod, all day long, with a breather at the slack.  Fish hit on a mix of jigs and clams. The usual. So why such a blitz? Good people, good times, plus Pineapple = Good Fishing.

Tuna Hunter has August openings – come out and cool off, enjoy great fishing and have a great time, call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com

Hook, Line and Sinker Bachelor Party – Gloucester Tuna Fishing

The Hook, Line and Sinker bachelor party aboard Tuna Hunter yielded a great time for all, and a bluefin tuna in the boat.

Gloucester tuna fishing is in full swing now, with bluefin of all sizes Tuna Hunter uses a combination of kite fishing, speed jigs, balloons and sometimes trolling. In short, we have an arsenal of techniques and a ready to use whatever fish are responding to for the day’s conditions. This often means switching things up throughout the day, and using several techniques at once.

On the Hook, Line and Sinker success, the bluefin hit a balloon, passing up gorgeous kit bait – go figure. The fish hit on the Matsuura reel, making for a smooth angling experience. The Hook Line and Sinker team reeled the bluefin to the boat, where he measured just legal to take home. 


A good omen – land a bluefin and bring home sushi on your bachelor party!  Best wishes to Tim and his bride!

  1. Gloucester tuna fishing will only get better form now through October. Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for our latest openings. We look forward to hooking you into a nice Charlie.

 

Annual Nivens Family Gloucester Fishing Bonanza

The annual Nivens family reunion typically includes a Gloucester fishing charter aboard Tuna Hunter, and typical both sessions produce loads of fish, plenty to feed the extended family back home.  The 2011 bash was no exception. 

This year the morning team outshone with striped bass – over ten keepers to 40 inches. Hard to beat! The action was busy all morning, making it hard to leave to swap out for the afternoon crew.

In the afternoon, the striper action slowed, but the cod action picked up. Drift rigs for striped bass fishing where exchanged for bottom rigs for cod fishing, and soon everyone was contributed large codfish to the fish box.  Gloucester fishing at its finest! 

Join Tuna Hunter with your family for great fishing, and great fun. We look forward to fishing with you!

Green Mountain Boys

The Green Mountain Boys of Vermont enjoyed an awesome day of cod and haddock fishing aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.
Cod fishing is strong now through the summer.

These guys experienced a steady pick all morning, a lull at the tide change then several bouts of large cod at Tuna Hunter favorite numbers in the afternoon to top off the fish box.  Every day is a bit different, but anticipate fish hitting on jigs and bait, with slight fluctuations through the day as we move from spot to spot working through the tides.

Enjoy the excellent bottom fishing of Stellwagen Bank and surrounding waters – call us to arrange for your cod and haddock fishing charter,

Gloucester Striped Bass Fishing – Full and Half-Day Full Swing

Gloucester striped bass fishing is in full swing, for full and half-day charters aboard Tuna Hunter.

As these guys, Cory and the “I know it’s 2AM but I really really want to fish” guys from Utica NY can attest, a half-day charter can be just as productive as a full day charter.
Striped Bass abound in the far reaches of Gloucester Harbor and outside of Gloucester and Rockport around the rocky coast of Cape Ann.  Tuna Hunter can put you into feeding stripers on all of our inshore charters, so whether we travel down to Kettle Island, north to Milk and Thatcher Islands, or fish our secret spots within Gloucester harbor, you are bound to encounter striped bass action.  Take advantage of summer – take half-day charter on Tuna Hunter to reconnect with friends, for a family outing, or just for the fun of it.  Call Captain Gary at 978-407-1351 to arrange for your striped bass charter.
Good fishing to all!
