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.

Striped Bass Fishing Charter – 44in Striper

By | Deep Sea Fishing Gloucester, Gloucester Deep Sea Fishing, Gloucester Fishing Charters, Gloucester Striped Bass Charters, Striped Bass Fishing, Uncategorized

A July striped bass fishing charter brought home a fine array of striped bass, including this fine 44in 35 lb striper

Striped bass are hitting pogies and mackerel, and just about anything else when they are turned on.  A morning or full day or striper fishing makes for a fine day on the waters of Cape Ann, followed by a fine grilled bass dinner.

Striped Bass are here through September – some fine fishing just before the fall migration south.

To reserve, simply call Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters  at 978-407-1351 or use our Reservations page.  See you soon for wicked good fishing!

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

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!

Sunday’s striped bass fishing charter brought back a great group of guys to celebrate a big birthday.  This 34 in striper was certainly served up on the grill later in the day.  Always fun to fish with this group who have been returning for years.
