Tuna Hunter Spring Haddock Fishing

Thursday, May 18th, 2017
Haddock Fishing aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

Tuna Hunter Fishing Haddock Charters

Spring haddock fishing is underway – anglers are pulling in plenty of haddock and even a halibut here and there.  Tuna Hunter is now fishing every day, heading to favorite bottom fishing spots on Stellwagen Bank  and Jeffreys Ledge.

Striped Bass are migrating into Cape Ann waters now – there are schoolies in the rivers, and sizeable stripers follow them up the coast. Striped bass fishing charters will be in full swing by Memorial Day.

And don’t forget that bluefin tuna season opens June 1st.  Tuna Hunter is ready to go.  There are plenty of sand eels and other bait on the fishing grounds ~ lief abounds, which bodes well for great early season giant bluefin tuna fishing.

Call us at 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com to join us for spring or summer fishing charters.    You just cannot beat a fine day on the water ~ Good fishing to you!

Wicked Tuna Boys Land Giant Bluefin Tuna aboard Tuna Hunter

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

The Wicked Tuna Boys had an awesome bluefin tuna charter aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.

While they are all avid Wicked Tuna fans, they will agree that nothing compares to being there in person to hear the reel scream, feel the power of the fish through the rod, battle fist to reel to angle the fish in crank by crank, see the harpoon shot, and finally pull your bluefin through the fish door.

It doesn’t get any better than this – memories of a lifetime for young crew, the fathers and for Tuna Hunter.

Tuna Hunter is already booking for next year.  Consider a Gift Certificate in any denomination for the Wicked Tuna fan on your list.  Call us at 978-407-1351 or 978-546-7992, or email captain@tunahunter.com for more details.

Good fishing to all, and to all a good bite!

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

The Lucky Charmers prove that all that’s needed for successful bluefi ntuna fishing is a lot of luck and some charm. They cliam Dave and Gary of Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters had the charm – they of course had the luck to hook and land this beautiful 750lb giant bluefin tuna out of Gloucester, MA.  

750lb Giant Bluefin Tuna by Lucky Charms on Tuna Hunter

Lucky Charmers Land 750lb Giant Bluefin Tuna on Tuna HunterGreat work for a team that had not fished for bluefin tuna before.  They didn’t realize at the time how lucky there were – they broke the northeast tuna dry spell and started a 3-day streak for Tuna Hunter. w/e look forward to fishing with this crew again.

The Tuna Hunter difference is knowing bluefin tuna and knowing the waters off of Cape Ann and beyond. Captain Gary has it in his bones – they don’t call him Tuna Hunter for nothing. Call 978-407-1351 or email captin@tunahunter.com to join us through September and October.
