Nick "the Real Estate Guy" Annual Gloucester Fishing Charter

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

This year’s annual “Nick the Real Estate Guy” Tuna Hunter fishing charter was not productive as a Gloucester tuna fishing charter, but did turn out to be a productive cod & haddock fishing charter .

Always a good time, always good fishing and great to see good friends keep in touch through the years.  As for this year’s fishing, cod was strong, but the bluefin eluded us, though conditions looked good in the morning with jumping bluefin in several areas. We had live bait, the baits looked great sitting beneath the kite, all systems were go – just no hungry stupid tuna took the bait.  That’s fishing!

To wrap up the day, we switched gears to do some bottom fishing, and quickly were into sizeable cod, haddock and pollock and cusk. 

Bluefin tuna are here in force, in all sizes.  Tuna Hunter will be fishing through October for bluefin tuna , stripers and cod & haddock.  As the tuna action heats up, dates are filling in.  You should be then next one hooked up! 

Call Captain Gary at 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for the latest openings.  We look forward to fishing with you!

Atlantic Bluefin Tuna for West Coast Team Salty

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Team Salty had an awesome tuna charter aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters.  Justin and Stu, from the west coast in California, wanted to see some east coast bluefin tuna action.

Bluefin Tuna Fishing Charter on Tuna Hunter - Team Salty

Tuna Hunter put Team Salty right on the meat, traveling to Stellwagon Bank to schools of jumping bluefin tuna.  A combination of bait, jigs and lures, and the kite, of course, the Tuna Hunter crew tempted this bluefin to the hook on a light rod (as opposed to the giant rods).  Justin and Stu battled the bluefin standup using our favorite OHO and Smitty fighting belts.  fine angling!  and some fine well-earned sushi.

Bluefin Tuna Fishing like this makes one want to fish the Atlantic over the Pacific!

The fishing grounds are healthy with bluefin tuna of all sizes, jumpers and big marks, plus plenty of cod & haddock for some bottom fishing action.

Call Captain Gary at 978-407-1351 or email captain@tunahunter.com for the latest opening for striped bass fishing, more cod fishing and line up that bluefin tuna kite fishing charter soon

Friday, August 7th, 2009

The Airasian family annual fishing charter was a beauty this year.   Large stripers  prevailed, hitting chunks and live bait. These guys are seasoned anglers, which paid off angling fish up  48 inches to the boat on light tackle.  Fine catch!

More TUNA – Nardone Fishing Charter on Tuna Hunter

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Bluefin tuna fishing on the banks is great! as the Nardone charter on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters can attest.

Tuna were jumping as Tuna Hunter approached the banks.  The captain stopped, sent out some bait, raised the kite, and wham, the fight was on. Everyone got to fight the fish, finally getting him to the boat. An awesome battle for all.  Kite fishing is a Tuna Hunter specialty. The hit is incredible – you’ll be hooked once you do.

Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters are catching bluefin tuna small – 200 lbs and large .. all are a great angling challenge for everyone on your charter.  Bring strong arms, and a taste for sushi or grilled tuna steaks.

Let Tuna Hunter put you onto a some great bluefin tuna.  Fishing charters for bluefin are ON now and will be through October.  We have a few openings .. call for the latest dates, 978-407-1351.  See http://www.tunahunter.com  and email captain@tunahunter.com.   That next bluefin can be yours!
