The Pineapple Gang joined Tuna Hunter for their annual fishing trip – with no cod this year there was plenty of action anyways, landing haddock, cusk, sharks and of course there is always pineapple
We love these guys! Great fishermen all, and tons of fun to have aboard.
Besides, they are the best-dressed charter anywhere!

Today NOAA FIsheries also opened a comment period for recreational cod and haddock fishing policies:
NOAA Fisheries Seeks Comments on Groundfish Recreational Measures by June 1, 2015.
Today, NOAA Fisheries published an interim final rule for the Northeast recreational groundfish fishery. This rule implements a reduction to the minimum size (now 17 inches) and a bag limit of 3 fish per person per day for Gulf of Maine haddock taken in the recreational fishery.
This interim rule is necessary to ensure that the recreational catch of haddock and recreational bycatch of cod will not exceed the annual catch limits for the recreational fishery in fishing year 2015.
This rule should reduce discards of cod and haddock by allowing anglers to retain smaller haddock so that they reach their bag limit more quickly.

Mark the outside of the envelope, ”Comments on the fishing year 2015 Haddock Recreational Measures.”
The comment period closes on June 1, 2015.
As of May 1, the recreational haddock rules covering Tuna Hunter and all charter vessels in MA fishing in the Gulf of Maine (the aters off the MA coast north of Cape Cod) are:
- 3 haddock per person
- 21 inch minimum
This is from the latest notice from the MA Division of Marine Fisheries. Read the full notice here.
From that notice note:
- A dual-permitted (state and federal) for-hire vessel fishing in state or federal waters and landing in Massachusetts is bound by a combination of the most restrictive rules: 3 fish and 21” minimum size. The vessel cannot catch or possess GOM haddock from state or federal waters during March, April, September, and October.
- A private recreational angler fishing entirely or in part in federal waters and landing in Massachusetts is bound by a combination of the most restrictive rules: 3 fish and 21” minimum size. The angler cannot catch or possess GOM haddock from federal waters during March, April, September, and October.
The MA Division of MarineFisheries (MA DMF) is currently accepting public comment and will be holding a public hearing on Thursday, May 28 on changing the state GOM haddock recreational rules. For more information on how to submit comment or the timing of the public hearing, refer this MA DMF Advisory.
Bottom line: 3 haddock per person. Unlimited pollock. unitl further notice.
With warm weather in site, we look forward to being out on the water, enjoying the sunshine, pulling in tasty haddock.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Good fishing to all, and to all a good bite!
