Tuna Hunter Fishing Haddock Charters

Spring haddock fishing is underway – anglers are pulling in plenty of haddock and even a halibut here and there. Tuna Hunter is now fishing every day, heading to favorite bottom fishing spots on Stellwagen Bank and Jeffreys Ledge.

Striped Bass are migrating into Cape Ann waters now – there are schoolies in the rivers, and sizeable stripers follow them up the coast. Striped bass fishing charters will be in full swing by Memorial Day.

And don’t forget that bluefin tuna season opens June 1st. Tuna Hunter is ready to go. There are plenty of sand eels and other bait on the fishing grounds ~ lief abounds, which bodes well for great early season giant bluefin tuna fishing.

Fall Tuna Fishing in Full Swing on Tuna Hunter

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.

Gloucester Giant Blufin – 700lbs for Cajun Tide Beach

Tuna Hunter led the crew from Cajun Tide Beach Resort in Grand Ilse LA into 700lb giant bluefin tuna on a recent Gloucester fishing charter. 

It was a great fishing day, and a great fishing night.

The morning started out a typical tuna charter – catch some mackerel, sail out to Stellwagen, put up the kite for a day of tuna kite fishing.   Soon – hooked up!  Fred fought this bluefin tuna to the boat.  All agreed to tag and release this 61 inch in favor of a giant later in the day. Who knew!  2:45PM the rod went off, this time Mark took the reel … over 6 hours later, yup. after 9PM, the crew hauled this 700lb bluefin through the fish door.

Congratulations to angler Mark for a battle well fought. No doubt this fish was landed largely due to Mark’s skill and perseverance, and right moves by all aboard throughout the fight. We look forward to fishing with the Cajun Tide crew again!

Tuna Hunter is fishing every day through the first week in November.  Catch those October tuna days, or stock up on cod and haddock before the winter.  Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for your fishing charter.
