As of July 1st, 2024, the commercial sale of bluefin tuna is restricted to Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

What does this mean for Tuna Hunter charters?  Not too much – we keep fishing every day for bluefin tuna of any size:

If we catch a giant bluefin tuna – 73 inches or over – on a restricted day – Sun, Tues, Fri, Sat or Sun – we tag it and release it.

If we catch a giant bluefin tuna – 73 inches or over – on a sale day – Mon, Wed or Thurs – we sell the fish, the charter gets meat out of the head and tail of the fish, and 20% of the sale proce of the fish.

If we catch a bluefin tuna under 73 inches, on any day, the charter may retain that fish – according ot the latest NMFS HMS regulations, which are subject to change at any time.  We will filet and steak it out for you, and serve a bit of sushi on the way home.

All fishing regulations are subject to change at any time during the season.

If you have any questions, call or email, 978-407-1351 or captain@tunahunter.com

We do have openings in August and September – please join us for the fishing experience of a lifetime!  We are fishing for bluefin tuna, sharks, haddock and cod offshore, as well as striped bass and bluefish – when they get here – inshore.  If it’s out there and has fins, we’ll help you catch it!
