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!
