This is Gloucester fishing at its finest.

Gloucester striped bass fishing begins in May as the larger stripers migrate into our waters, following mackerel up the coast. Come join us to catch these hugies and enjoy some light-tackle schoolie and large striped bass action. Stripers generally stay through September.
Off Gloucester, we have a mix of giant bluefin tuna (300 to 1100+ lbs), medium (tag-and-release) and small (keepers!) tuna, caught on giant rods or lighter tackle. Yes, we said 1100 lbs - true giants have returned to the Gloucester area.
Kite bites: Watch for that slam of a bluefin busting the kite bait on the surface - Hooked up!

Gloucester fishing charters maTuna Hunter Fishing Charters ~ Captain Gary Cannell

Captain Gary Cannell has been fishing his entire life - he has been U.S. Coast guard licensed since 1984 (License # 777397). Gary has extensive experience fishing in waters from Maine to the Bahamas, as far as 100 miles offshore.

He is known for his expertise with Striped Bass, Cod, Sharks, and Giant Bluefin Tuna. Originally from New Jersey, Capt. Gary learned and perfected the art and science of giant bluefin tuna fishing. Tuna Hunter would follow bluefin tuna up and down the New England coast each season, frequenting Brielle/Manasquan, NJ, Montauk, NY, Point Judith, RI and Chatham and Gloucester, MA. Captain Gary and Tuna Hunter moved to Gloucester in 1995 when caught and landed by a mermaid.

When not hunting, Gary is tuna fishing, bass fishing, cod fishing, fly fishing. diving or ice fishing. Come fall and winter, Gary is hunting birds, deer or elk. He is always searching for new fishing hot sports, new techniques, and new ways to get fishing to bite - always hunting and fishing in some way or manner.

About Wicked Tuna - see "Gary from Hawaii" on Episode 7. As a professional charter boat, and the classic Express Sport Fisherman style of Tuna Hunter, we were deemed "too professional" for reality TV. Your gain, as we charter through the full fishing season - more fishing charter dates for you!
