Family Striped Bass Fishing

Striped bass fishing charter on Tuna Hunter is great family fun.  These stripers were a great experience for all, plus some fine steaks for the grill.


Great striped bass fishing ladies!

Are your Ready? Tuna Opens June 1st

Between now and June 1st, there is plenty of fishing – cod and haddock fishing now

 (go this year, while regulations still allow for good catches) and striped bass fishing in a week or two as the hugies migrate up from New Jersey, when catches are phenomenal this season so far.

Striped Bass Charters – Family Fun

The MacDonough family had a blast on their recent Gloucester striped bass charter aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.

Alexis and Hunter teamed up for this striped bass – learning the entire process from catching live bait to baiting, hooking and fighting the fish along the way.   This trip was mainly offshore 1 to 2 miles, aiming fpr larger stripers that hang out off the Gloucester, Cape Ann coast. This type of striped bass charter is an alternative to striper charters that hugs the rocky coast along Kettle Island, Norman’s Woe, Mussel Point, Milk Island, Thatcher Island and beyond. Tuna Hunter knows the coast and the latest conditions, to adapt your charter to produce the best catch.

Tuna Hunter still has openings for full and half-day striped bass fishing, or full day bluefin tuna or cod and haddock fishing charters.  Give us a call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for your family fishing charter.

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!

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!

Striped Bass Gloucester for Holden Family

Did we mention striped bass fishing off of Gloucester is going strong this year?  The Holden family has a productive striped bass charter with Tun Hunter last weekend.  It sure is nice to catch fish too big to hold!

Striped bass and bluefish action is prime right now – there are mackerel in the harbor and around the cape, with striped bass, bluefish and even bluefin tuna pushing them.  Can’t miss with that kind of action.  There is a lot of good fishing in a half-day charter, you deserve it!

Nivens Striped Bass Bonanza

The Nivens family displayed excellent angling skills on their two-shift striped bass charter aboard Tuna Hunter.  They chose two shifts, to ensure everyone, all ages, could enjoy some time on the water, and a a chance at high hook.  The morning shift prevailed in sheer numbers of fish, easily reaching their limit of 30-40+ inch stripers. Fish hit steadily on a mix of live bait and artificial. Chumming is difficult due to dogfiish – you will need to adjust tactics to avoid them.

The afternoon shift saw fewer fish, but Scott reeled in the biggest fish of the day, at 43 inches, and we let that one go! All around a perfect day, a great striped bass charter, followed by a great meal of grilled striper and lobsters.

Full or half-day striped bass charters are a great way to get anglers of all ages out for some fishing. Tuna Hunter has morning and evening half-day charters, just call or text us for the latest openings at 978-407-1351, or email captain@tunahunter.com.  Good fishing to you!

Striped Bass Gloucester on Tuna Hunter

Striped Bass only seemed to arrive late this year; they are here in full swing now. The Rodriquez family spent an afternoon fishing off of Gloucester and put together a mixed catch, including some fine striped bass for the grill.

Striped Bass charters are a great family event, for all ages and all abilities.

Good fishing to you!

Giant Bluefin Tuna in June!

 Some guys go fishing on their birthday … these guys go tuna fishing on their birthday. The birthday guy gets a can of tuna fish (Starkist?) for his present. That’s dinner, unless he lands a bluefin tuna that day.  So far, these guys are 100% successful, and were spared the canned tuna.

Gloucester Giant Tuna Charter on Tuna Hunter - Ted Cannon and Crew

Bluefin tuna arrived in Gloucester early this year – so bluefin tuna charters are in full swing now. There are tuna of all sizes out there, and even with the current slot regulations, Tuna Hunter will make sure you get the best battle and most bluefin tuna action possible.  Tuna are feeding on live prey, and matching that prey along with being the right locaiton at the right time with the right tackle and great crew makes the difference. This bluefin bypassed beautiful mackerel dangled from a kite, for a boring chunk of baint 30 ft down. Go figure.

Not into tuna? Striped bass are here as well, though perhaps getting overshadowed by tuna news. Striped bass around the rocky coast of Cape Ann is a great bet for a great day on the water, and a great piece of fish for the grill. 

Call us for the latest openings – that next hugie has your name on it
