Bluefin Tuna – Best of Season is Now!

October bluefin tuna fishing on Tuna Hunter continues to be awesome, with a mix of giants (tag and release) and smaller Bluefin (under 3 inches) for charters to take home.  All week, charters have been battling giants and smaller bluefin, taking home tuna loins for the grill and sushi.

Tuna Hunter will be fishing into November, for as long as weather allows and the bluefin are in our Cape Ann waters.  We were happy to have great father and son action this weekend – a great way to get young anglers interested for life.

Giant bluefin – over 73 inches – are tag and release.  Bluefin under 73 inches may be retained by the charter – one 47 to 73, two 27 to 47 inches. (Regulations may change!)

Tuna Hunter is fishing as long as weather conditions allow – the fishing grounds have plenty of bait , plenty of Bluefin of different sizes, and low crowds.

Giant bluefin tuna fishing on Tuna Hunter continues through the fall, for as long as weather allows and the bluefin are in our Cape Ann waters.

Yet another recent trip yielded three tagged giant bluefin.    A few days before, our charter went home with a porbeagle shark and tagged a giant bluefin in the same afternoon.

Tasty Mako – a great charter take-home shark. This lucky charter has a fine day battling several blue sharks and this fine Mako.   Not everyone knows – Mako’s can be quite acrobatic;  They often jump and flip much like a sailfish.  And, they a great eating.

Tuna Hunter has been busy these last two months – the commercial bluefin closure did not affect our charters, other than we tagged and release all bluefin tuna over 73 inches.

We uses tags from the Large Pelagic Research Center

Sharks Are In!

Let’s face it – Sharks and shark charters are in – in our waters, and fun to catch, even while waiting for a giant bluefin.

Makos, porbeagles, threshers and blue sharks are in our area and biting, making for some fun toothy action.  Like seeing this mouthful right next to the boat.

Shark Fever!

Meanwhile we are also tagging and releasing giant bluefin – 500lbs yesterday, 800lbs last week.  We use tags from the Large Pelagic Research Center, our best source of bluefin tuna research.  Learn more about their tagging program here.

We are fishing through October at least – contact us to reserve.  Good fishing!

Wicked Tuna Boys Land Giant Bluefin Tuna aboard Tuna Hunter

By | Bluefin Tuna Charters | No Comments

The Wicked Tuna Boys had an awesome bluefin tuna charter aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.

While they are all avid Wicked Tuna fans, they will agree that nothing compares to being there in person to hear the reel scream, feel the power of the fish through the rod, battle fist to reel to angle the fish in crank by crank, see the harpoon shot, and finally pull your bluefin through the fish door.

It doesn’t get any better than this – memories of a lifetime for young crew, the fathers and for Tuna Hunter.

Tuna Hunter is already booking for next year.  Consider a Gift Certificate in any denomination for the Wicked Tuna fan on your list.  Call us at 978-407-1351 or 978-546-7992, or email captain@tunahunter.com for more details.

Good fishing to all, and to all a good bite!
