Tuna Fishing Gloucester MA
are one of the largest, fastest, and most gorgeously colored of all the worlds fishes. Their torpedo-shaped, streamlined bodies are built for speed and endurance. Their coloring metallic blue on top and shimmering silver-white on the bottom helps camouflage them from above and below. And their voracious appetite and varied diet pushes their average size to a whopping 6.5 feet (2 meters) in length and 550 pounds (250 kilograms), although much larger specimens are not uncommon. Most of the fish that we have been catching are around 50-68 inches or 100 to 170lbs.

  BLUEFISH enter our coastal waters late June through September. During that time you will enjoy some of the fastest fishing available in northern waters. When fishing for blues on light tackle, you can easily strip 50 yards of line. Pound for pound there is no other fish that match the fighting power of bluefish.
