Fishing Charters in a World of COVID-19: Fish On!

By Bluefin Tuna Charters, Cod & Haddock Charters, Deep Sea Fishing Gloucester, giant bluefin tuna, Gloucester Deep Sea Fishing, Gloucester Fishing Charters, Gloucester Shark Fishing, Gloucester Striped Bass Charters, Gloucester Tuna Fishing, Mako Shark, Shark Fishing Charters, Striped Bass Fishing, Tuna fishing charters, Uncategorized

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

Father and Son Tuna Fishing on Tuna Hunter

Bluefin Tuna – Best of Season is Now!

By Bluefin Tuna Charters, Deep Sea Fishing Gloucester, giant bluefin tuna, Gloucester Deep Sea Fishing, Gloucester Fishing Charters, Gloucester Tuna Fishing, Tuna fishing charters, Tuna fishing MA

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.

Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com , or use our Reservations page, to join us!
