Gloucester Cod and Haddock Fishing with Anatoli and Pavel

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

We know it is really spring when Pavel and Anatoli join us for a full day Gloucester cod and haddock fishing.  Always plenty of smiles, plenty of stories, and plenty of cod and haddock.

This recent trip yielded more haddock than cod, but no complaints there, we have osme tasty dinners ahead.

We wish our friend Anatoli best wishes and speedy recovery – we hope to have you back fishing with us soon! Pavel, you need to reel in twice as much fish now.

Join Tuna Hunter for your Gloucester cod fishing charter – we are ready to go, 7 days a week. Call us at 978-407-1351 or email for the latest openings. 

Pineapple Gang – Gloucester Cod Charter Blowout

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

The Pineapple Gang takes their cod fishing charters seriously. So serious, that this is their 8th year cod fishing aboard Tuna Hunter. Every year they are well prepared, well-dressed and have good success. They are all good anglers, and passionate about their fishing.

This year’s trip was no exception, and the fish cooperated – a non-stop blitz of large cod, all day long, with a breather at the slack.  Fish hit on a mix of jigs and clams. The usual. So why such a blitz? Good people, good times, plus Pineapple = Good Fishing.

Tuna Hunter has August openings – come out and cool off, enjoy great fishing and have a great time, call 978-407-1351 or email

Happy 2011 – Spring is Coming!

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Happy New Year 2011 to all!

We hope you are having a calm, restful winter, aside  from snow shoveling.

With all this snow, Tuna Hunter reminds you that spring is around the corner – two more months, and Tuna Hunter will be in the water for spring cod and haddock fishing.

We are taking reservations now for April fishing charters.  Gloucester cod fishing opens April 15, and we aim to be there for a fresh start to a new season, and if nothing else to get away from all the snow onshore.

Good fishing to all – Captain Gary & Karen

Love that Gloucester Cod Fishing

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Some Tuna Hunter charters are passionate about their cod fishing.

Elaine’s Lovin’ that Gloucester Cod

Hefty cod like these abound on the banks.  This day was an early morning bite, a lull, then steady action for the rest of the day, all mainly on jigs.  The offshore groundfish action is holding strong, amongst jumping tuna for those targeting bluefin.  Inshore, striped bass are here in various sizes, 30 – 40inches common.  Call 978-407-1351 or email for the latest openings. Besides great fishing, its cooler out there on the water!

The Westchester Connection – Awesome Gloucester Cod Fishing

The Westchester Connection aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

What can be better than the summer-in-April weekend … spending that weekend on the water,
Cod & Haddock Fishing, of course.

Friday’s fishing was “ridiculous”, with limits of cod being reached by mid-morning. (current NMFS regulations call for 10 cod per angler; no bag limit on haddock). Anglers were happy to focus on tasty haddock for the remainder of the day.

The Westchester Connection on a day of Gloucester Cod Fishing - Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

On Saturday, the early morning drift yielded some cod, to get everyone warmed up. The real action started when Captain Gary Cannell chose to anchor over several hot spots. Cod to 20lbs hit Norwegian jigs, aiming for herring, but hitting the hook and landing aboard Tuna Hunter. Haddock – boatloads of haddock – preferred the clams throughout this weekend. Saturday’s haddock bite was steadier and continued later in the day. The Westchester guys were fishing all day long, reeling all day long, which is what we all aim for.

Typical to all trips in the spring, the breezes offshore and 45 degree water keep it much cooler than the 80’s on shore. As the water warms up, expect migrating striped bass and eventually bluefin tuna to move into our area.

There is plenty of life out on both Jeffries Ledge and Stellwagen Bank: sand eels, herring, pods of whales. It all looks promising to attract and hold quality fish throughout our summer season.
