Vermont Mate’s Break the Tuna Drought – 450lber on Tuna Hunter

Jeff and Paul from Vermont brought the lucky piece they swear made the difference – Tuna Hunter boated the 450lb bluefin, breaking the tuna drought for the fleet. Since then things improved, but this was the first to break the spell. What a corker!

 

Nippon TV Stars Singing for their Bluefin Tuna
Gloucester Bluefin Tuna Charters on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

The stars of the Nippon TV comedy show that came to film giant bluefin tuna fishing shared a song while waiting for their bluefin. The guys were rewarded with a giant bluefin later in the day. Despite the language barrier, all went smoothly as the Nippon TV Team Tuna and Tuna Hunter crew fought and landed their giant.

Two 800lb Giant Bluefin Tuna, One Charter – Too Big for the Fish Door
Gloucester Tuna Charters on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

This is still the first 800lber of the day. This guy came in relatively easy – an hour battle – but does not fit through the fish door, so we use block and tackle strung up to the tuna tower to haul this beauty aboard. When doing so, the crew needs to take care to not bruise the fish – the Japanese like perfect fish for their sushi.
The second fish of the day was just a bit smaller – skinnier? He made it through the fish door. Good thing, because we were hauling him aboard at 9pm at night.
Tuna Hunter did a wheelie all the way home, with two 800lbers in the cockpit. Trim tabs can only do so much!

Two 800lb Giant Bluefin Tuna One Charter – End of Fight #1-
Gloucester Tuna Charters on Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters

This clip shows the end of the battle with the first giant bluefin tuna of the day. This guy came in easy, a one hour battle for an 800 lb bluefin tuna. Some are big, ft and lazy … Good thing, because the second 800lb bluefin this day was mean and lean, taking three hours to battle to the boat.

Cajun Tide Beach Boats 700lb Bluefin -
Gloucester Tuna Charters

True giant bluefin have returned to the Gloucester waters with a vengance. Some real big guys are mixed in with our 50 – 80 inch, making for some great battles.  Angler Mark from Cajun Tide Beach Resort in Grand Isle, LA manned the rod for a six hour battle that went well into the dark. This video shows the Tuna Hunter crew assisted by Fred pulling the bluefin onto the boat. That first look when he’s at your feet is impressive.

Gloucester MA Shark Fishing - Big Sharks, Big Teeth, Big Angling Fight

Sharks are big this year – big in the news, big in size and a big angling fight. Since pound for pound sharks are not as strong as bluefin tuna, we can set you up to fight a big blue or mako shark stand-up, on a Penn reel using a Smitty fighting belt.  This is an awesome way to fight a fish, and to see your shark up close when he gets near the boat.

Polish Bluefin Tuna Fishing – Gaff, Measure, Celebrate!

Boating a green bluefin tuna is tricky all the time, but even more so when one needs to safely gaff the fish and take a clean measurement.

Care needs to be taken for a clean gaff in key spots in the jaw. Then the crew must secure and measure avoiding harm to the fish, crew and boat.

On this 76 inch bluefin, the final measurement was confirmed after bringing the fish onboard, still unharmed, through the fish door. A towel calms the fish while captain and crew measured again – then celebrated. That makes a perfect score for Chris and friends – all Polish.  Must be those Polish snacks, candy and luck that does the trick!

Large Medium Bluefin Tuna Charter - Jess and Litto’s Sushi Bluefin

Patience and a bit of luck brought Jess and Litto this 58 inch bluefin on a recent Tuna Hunter bluefin tuna chater. While not a giant, this bluefin has the benefit of being in the proper size slot for taking home.

Congratulations, and Enjoy that sushi, Jess and Litto!

Gloucester Tuna Fishing – Ted Cannon and Friends Birthday Battle

The birthday boy gets a can of tunafish for his birthaday, and that’s it. Unless he can land a tuna, preferably a giant tuna.   The birthday guy gets to battle the fish himself, with lots of moral support of course.

Tuna Hunter on WFN Reel Road Trip on Bluefin Tuna Tagging and the Bluefin Tuna Industry

Fishing for bluefin tuna for over 25 years, fishing Gloucester, Montauk, Point Judith, Chatham, Brielle NJ and more, his decades of experience and passion for the fishery are unparelleled.
