750lb Giant Bluefin for the Lucky Charmers on Tuna Hunter

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.

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.

Fish of a Lifetime – Bluefin Tuna Success on Tuna Hunter

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Patience and determination pays off, as Jess lands his fish of a lifetime – a 680 lb bluefin tuna aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.


Congratulations, Jess!

Landing a giant bluefin tuna is not an every-day event. When the fish are biting, and your captain knows his stuff and uses top-notch equipment and tackle, it produces fine bluefin like this beauty.  This guy took a downlline on live bait.
There are many more like these to come this year – join Tuna Hunter for your fish of a lifetime, you deserve it! 978-407-1351 or captain@tunahunter.com to reserve.

Are your Ready? Tuna Opens June 1st

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

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.

Two 800lb Bluefin, One Big Day of Gloucester Fishing

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Happy New Year to all fishermen out there! As we settle in to a relatively-quiet January, it gives us time to be grateful for an awesome 2011 fishing season. Over the coming months we’ll reminisce with some highlights.

In one incredible day, Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters landed two 800-lb bluefin. One giant was an awesome rush. The fish fought a typical giant bluefin battle, and Tuna Hunter had her in the boat an hour, relatively short time.  The second bluefin, hooked up 2 hours later, gave a mighty battle that lasted into the dark.

Who cares if it’s dark, when this is the end result. The ladies decided to join this trip at the last minute – a sure case of Lady Luck in action. 

800lb giant bluefin tuna on Tuna Hunter Fishing

This late October trip is a good example of true giant bluefin tuna fishing. Our area has not seen giants like these in a few years. 200, 300 and 400lb fish have been the norm. These 700, 800 and 900 lbers were a welcome sight for Captain Gary, who has been targeting giants for over 30 years now. It was a pleasure to have these beauties pass through, and we are counting on them returning next season.  This is Gloucester tuna fishing at its best!
Tuna Hunter will be fishing again come April ~ Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com to reserve your fishing charter.

Gloucester Giant Blufin – 700lbs for Cajun Tide Beach

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Tuna Hunter led the crew from Cajun Tide Beach Resort in Grand Ilse LA into 700lb giant bluefin tuna on a recent Gloucester fishing charter. 

It was a great fishing day, and a great fishing night.


The morning started out a typical tuna charter – catch some mackerel, sail out to Stellwagen, put up the kite for a day of tuna kite fishing.   Soon – hooked up!  Fred fought this bluefin tuna to the boat.  All agreed to tag and release this 61 inch in favor of a giant later in the day. Who knew!  2:45PM the rod went off, this time Mark took the reel … over 6 hours later, yup. after 9PM, the crew hauled this 700lb bluefin through the fish door.

Congratulations to angler Mark for a battle well fought. No doubt this fish was landed largely due to Mark’s skill and perseverance, and right moves by all aboard throughout the fight. We look forward to fishing with the Cajun Tide crew again!

Tuna Hunter is fishing every day through the first week in November.  Catch those October tuna days, or stock up on cod and haddock before the winter.  Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for your fishing charter.

Gloucester Tuna Fishing – Tag & Release for Research

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Gloucester tuna fishing continues, with tuna begin taken every day in all size categories. 

Tim and Liz spent several days stranded in Gloucester, tuna fishing of course. They opted to tag and release all of their non-giant bluefin tuna.  Makes for some great angling – and these two know their stuff -  and gives back a bit to bluefin research.

Per 2011 NMFS regulations, tuna 59 to 73 inches must be released. Tuna Hunter tags these tuna, using Large Pelagic Research Center tags, to support bluefin tuna research.

Tuna tagging is not difficult, This photo shows proper tag placement, then the fish was quickly released, right back out through the fish door.

Tuna Hunter is fishing every day through the first week in November.  Catch those October tuna days, or stock up on cod and haddock before the winter.  Call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for your fishing charter.

Two for One – AccuTech Gloucester Bluefin Tuna Charter

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Chris and the gang from AccuTech took advantage of the two-for-one bluefin tuna charter special aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters on their recent charter.

Two Giant Bluefin Tuna for the AccuTech Team

Both tuna hit on the kite – if you have not seen it, it is an awesome sight to see a giant bluefin rise to the surface and smash a kite bait. As has been the usual, Tuna Hunter was kite fishing – dangling live bait just at the surface, using a fishing kite. On this day the tuna were there and hungry, and the AccuTech anglers did a fine job battling both fish to the boat.  Current NMFS Tuna regulations allow for up to three giants in one day. Bluefin of all sizes are in our area now, and will stay through September and October.  Tuna Hunter is ready to provide that three-for special – give us a call at 978-407-1351 to book your September tuna fishing charter out of Gloucester.  Congratulations to Chris and the AccuTech team, and Good fishing to all!

Evans Family Tuna Charter Success on Tuna Hunter

Monday, August 8th, 2011

The Evans family’s recent bluefin tuna charter on Tuna Hunter yielded just the right size bluefin tuna for the grill, and some sushi along the way.

All family members took a turn on the reel, battling the bluefin to the boat where it was measured at 58 inches, just under the keeper limit.  Current (as of this trip)  bluefin tuna regulations allows for one fish 27-47, one 47-59, and tuna 59 to 73 must be released. Tuna Hunter practices tag and release, using tags from the Large Pelagic Research Center,  to support bluefin tuna research. We were ready to tag, but this tuna was a keeper.

Bluefin tuna of all sizes are in our waters off of Gloucester, MA, along Stellwagen Bank and northward into Ipswich Bay. Tuna Hunter fishes all over, according to the best reports and our recent experience. Tuna Hunter is fishing every day between now and November. We have some opening for your party, so give us a call 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com.  Good fishing to you! and congratulations to the Evans family
