Annual Nivens Family Gloucester Fishing Bonanza

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

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!

Green Mountain Boys

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

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,

New York Hillbillies Cod Fishing on Tuna Hunter

Friday, May 13th, 2011

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.

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.

The Pineapple Gang _ Gloueste Cod Fishing for 7 Years

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

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 captain@tunahunter.com for the latest openings.  Check for weekend cancellations – we’ll do our best to fit you in.  Good fishing to you!

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 captain@tunahunter.com for the latest openings. Besides great fishing, its cooler out there on the water!

Atypical of recent charters, the morning was slow, so Tuna Hunter moved around to locate hungry fish. The moves paid off when they dropped jigs and bait into a podd of large cod. double headers of 20 – 30 lb codd kept the guys for AT&T busy for the rest of the day.

The last trip for this crew they landed two giant bluefin tuna   (see photo on our Facebook page).  So of course we are happy to have these guys, and their luck, return for a cod & haddock fishing charter aboard Tuna Hunter.

A gorgeous day, good company, and great cod fishing made for a good time for all. No hugies on this trip, but steady action of keeper cod, limiting out by the end of the day.
