Lucky Charmers Strike Again – 830lb Gloucester Bluefin Tuna on Tuna Hunter

July 23rd, 2014

Martha’s Lucky Charmers proved lucky indeed, as they landed this amazing 117 inch giant bluefin aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters last weekend.

Kudos to all anglers – Martha, Patty, Al and Charlie, who expertly handled this long bluefin tuna throughout the 4 hour battle.  Al and Charlie had particularly long circling session with our girl, as she was having nothing to do with either of them, nor with mate “Lars-ceny” standing ready with the harpoon.  So close … yet so far, she’d come close and eyeball us, then flick her tail and be off. (That’s the 2nd harpoon in the foreground – the first was ready in hand.)

And oh what a good feeling it is when she’s tail-wrapped!

The best news is, Martha brings us another lucky crew for the Gloucester Bluefin Blowout Tournament coming up August 1st – August 3rd.  Odds are with Martha on board we’ll break the shutout.  Good luck to all.

More Gloucester bluefin tuna are being landed every day – call Tuna Hunter for our latest August and September opening. This is shaping up to be an old-fashioned giant bluefin tuna season with more bigger fatter tuna as the season wears on.  

Join Captain Gary Cannell on Tuna Hunter for the best boat, captain and experience.  978-407-1351 or captain@tunahunter.com
