Bluefin Tuna Madness is On! Fat Boy by Jeff and Jack

If you have not heard, October Bluefin Madness has struck – bluefin tuna arrived off Gloucester in numbers not seen in years, following awesome schools of herring like we have not seen in years.

Of course Tuna Hunter was there, as Captain Gary is “tuna hunter” in every sense of the word.  Tuna Hunter will be Bluefin Tuna Fishing every day, weather permitting, through November.

The cod and haddock seem to know the limits this year, as we continue to get many fish just on the line. As the season progresses more of the big guys are showing up, as we expected. Persistence pays off.

 

There are plenty of mackerel around and we anticipate solid catches for cod, haddock, tuna and striped bass fishing charters for the duration of this season.

Lucky Charmers Strike Again – 830lb Gloucester Bluefin Tuna on Tuna Hunter

Martha’s Lucky Charmers proved lucky indeed, as they landed this amazing 117 inch giant bluefin aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters last weekend.

Kudos to all anglers – Martha, Patty, Al and Charlie, who expertly handled this long bluefin tuna throughout the 4 hour battle.  Al and Charlie had particularly long circling session with our girl, as she was having nothing to do with either of them, nor with mate “Lars-ceny” standing ready with the harpoon.  So close … yet so far, she’d come close and eyeball us, then flick her tail and be off. (That’s the 2nd harpoon in the foreground – the first was ready in hand.)

Giant bluefin tuna cruising alongside - so close yet so far.  2nd harpoon ready in the foreground, 1st harpoon in hand.

And oh what a good feeling it is when she’s tail-wrapped!

The best news is, Martha brings us another lucky crew for the Gloucester Bluefin Blowout Tournament coming up August 1st – August 3rd.  Odds are with Martha on board we’ll break the shutout.  Good luck to all.

More Gloucester bluefin tuna are being landed every day – call Tuna Hunter for our latest August and September opening. This is shaping up to be an old-fashioned giant bluefin tuna season with more bigger fatter tuna as the season wears on.

Russian Sportsman Club Cod/Haddock Fishing on Tuna Hunter

This Russian family had a great day of cod and haddock fishing aboard the Tuna Hunter.  The kids more than did their share hauling in good-sized cod. Action was steady, with larger fish arriving in the afternoon.   This same gang is tuna fishing today!

Nivens Family 13th Annual Striped Bass Bash

We can’t quite believe it has been 13 years – for Tuna Hunter it has been a pleasure to host the annual Nivens family summer Bass Bash.  Striped Bass fishing this season has taken a return to the days of fishing along the rocks and shores of Gloucester and Rockport coast and islands.

Spring is Here! Cod and Haddock FIshing on May 1st

Spring cod and haddock fishing is a right of passage for Tuna Hunter – another year, ready to go. Everything is waxed and polished, the reels are shiny, the rods are ready to go after a winter sleep.

All you anglers know its time for hauling some huge cod and haddock over the rail. Beautiful spring days – even the cloudy ones – are wonderful on the water when you are fishing with your buddies.
