To all our Customers, and all Fishers Everywhere:

We at Tuna Hunter wish everyone the best for safety, health and sanity through this period of uncertainty and fear about the COVID-19 virus and the changes it is imposing on our work and home lives.  We are hoping we all come through this period safe and healthy, and that  come summer we are all healthy and able to go out and play again!

We are committed to being on the water fishing once the weather warms, on our usual schedule:

Fishing is an outdoor, fresh air activity, and private charter boats mean you are the only persons aboard, no mixing with friends you just met.  We carry only your party, a maximum of six charter passengers per trip.  We always carry hand sanitizer and cleaner aboard, and we maintain Tuna Hunter in immaculate shape – the deck and all fishing areas are soaped and bleached after each trip as a matter of routine.

We realize that travel plans, even local travel plans, are on hold at this time because we really do not know how long restrictions will be in place.  Rest assured we are here taking reservations for this summer, and are following federal, state and local government recommendations and mandates on what is possible when.

We will be closely watching COVID-19 recommendations and mandates as our summer season approaches.  We are all hoping that the travel-related closures and restrictions we are all under now will be lifted by this summer, and hope to see all of you around Cape Ann out on the water.  For now, we are planning and preparing for a full fishing season, as usual.

We will be ready, and we will be fishing as long as they let us leave the dock. We look forward to having you join us!  Please contact us if you have any questions about fishing in general, this upcoming season, or cleanliness and safety aboard Tuna Hunter.

We look forward to fishing with you – safe and healthy times to all,

Gary, Karen, Ben, Kali, Tali

Mako Shark on Tuna Hunter

Tasty Mako on Tuna Hunter

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!
