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 for our latest openings. We look forward to hooking you into a nice Charlie.


Gloucester Bluefin Tuna – City Island Boys

The City Island Boys will tell you Gloucester Bluefin Tuna fishing on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters is going strong now and will be for the coming weeks.

These folks fought a two-hour battle on the Ken Matsuura titanium reel to boat a 513-lb giant bluefin tuna on a recent tuna charter. This fish pulled all the stops out, making the bow run, the dive, the pect fin caught in the line at one point. Captain and crew and luck prevailed as these guys landed this beauty late in the day.  By the time this fish hit, the guys were all in practice after fighting a smaller bluefin tuna on a standup reel to the boat for a release.  Certainly a full day of tuna fishing!

Tuna Hunter will be fishing into November, to catch these late season giants.  Give us a call at 978-407-1351 or email for the latest openings.  Next singles day, Sunday October 24.
