While June seems far away, it is less than one month away to bluefin tuna season! Are you ready? Tuna Hunter is set to target bluefin tuna as soon as the season opens on June 1st. We are ready to haul in more 800 lb fish, like this beauty, one of two giants boated that day.
Between now and June 1st, there is plenty of fishing – cod and haddock fishing now (go this year, while regulations still allow for good catches) and striped bass fishing in a week or two as the hugies migrate up from New Jersey, when catches are phenomenal this season so far.
A followup on our tag recapture – we go photos of that tuna’s brother, who we did keep that day, and made many persons happy with sushi and tuna steaks.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org

The annual Nivens family reunion typically includes a Gloucester fishing charter aboard Tuna Hunter, and typical both sessions produce loads of fish, plenty to feed the extended family back home. The 2011 bash was no exception.
This year the morning team outshone with striped bass – over ten keepers to 40 inches. Hard to beat! The action was busy all morning, making it hard to leave to swap out for the afternoon crew.
In the afternoon, the striper action slowed, but the cod action picked up. Drift rigs for striped bass fishing where exchanged for bottom rigs for cod fishing, and soon everyone was contributed large codfish to the fish box. Gloucester fishing at its finest!
Join Tuna Hunter with your family for great fishing, and great fun. We look forward to fishing with you!

The Green Mountain Boys of Vermont enjoyed an awesome day of cod and haddock fishing aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.
Cod fishing is strong now through the summer.
These guys experienced a steady pick all morning, a lull at the tide change then several bouts of large cod at Tuna Hunter favorite numbers in the afternoon to top off the fish box. Every day is a bit different, but anticipate fish hitting on jigs and bait, with slight fluctuations through the day as we move from spot to spot working through the tides.
Enjoy the excellent bottom fishing of Stellwagen Bank and surrounding waters – call us to arrange for your cod and haddock fishing charter,

Gloucester cod & haddock fishing is underway big time – as these anglers from Lake Erie, New York will attest. The hearty group fished both Saturday and Sunday, reeling in a boatload of cod and haddock each day.
From Erie, New York – Happy Cod Fishermen
Sunday’s catch of cod and haddock aboard Tuna Hunter.
The catch was was offshore, but the long trip was worthwhile on both days. Cod were hitting mainly jigs, with the usual fluctuations throughout the day and a great late-day bite to top off the fishbox.

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

For the seventh year in a row, the Pineapple Gang’s Gloucester cod fishing charter aboard Tuna Hunter was a big success.
The entire family are great anglers, and certainly know how to have a great time. No messing around here. It was serious fishing: as soon as we reached the fishing grounds, jigs hit the water. Fish hit jigs more than bait, as has been the usual lately.
This year the team amassed a boatload of fish, cod, haddock and a large cusk. Yes, cusk are good eating.
We look forward to sharing a day with these guys each year.
While we were cod fishing last weekend, the bluefin tuna action remains strong. Bluefin of varying sizes are all over, being taken by kite, balloons, live and ead bait, some of jigs even. So be prepared for anything!
Inshore the striped bass fishing is good, despite the commercial season. Tuna Hunter’s evening bass charters have been particularly successful. It was great to host the Arasian family again this week – with Dad again taking top fish. Photos coming!
Tuna Hunter has mid-week openings for full charters and singles – give us a call at 978-407-1351 or email email@example.com for the latest openings. Check for weekend cancellations – we’ll do our best to fit you in. Good fishing to you!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest openings. Besides great fishing, its cooler out there on the water!
