Coastal Fishing Charters 5 STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS


 FISHING REPORT: 6/20/24 Striped Bass fishing has been great! Keepers on all trips in the last week or so. Haddock fishing has been heating up again in the last few days. We are continuing our streak for the 5th year in a row with striped bass on every trip! We have also got live mackerel on all trips in the 2023 season and so far in 2024. Live mackerel or pollack increases your chances for catching bass 10 fold in my opinion. Please book as soon as you know the day you want. Weekend 7/13 and 7/14 have come available as of 6/21.  August still has plenty.

About Our Gloucester MA Bluefin Tuna Fishing Charters

Bluefin tuna are one of the largest, fastest, and best eating fish that New England offers. They are prized among sport fishing for their fight and speed, shooting through the water with their powerful tails up to 43 miles per hour, pulling the fishing line away 200 yards from the boat. If fish were like cars, tuna would be the Ferraris of the ocean, sleek, powerful, and made for speed. Captain Nick has a passion for finding the best Ferraris out there. Gloucester is centrally located to some of the highest yielding Bluefin Tuna Fishing grounds that New England offers. With the central locations, we are the best with the shortest rides out of any ports, with Stellwagen bank, Jeffries Ledge, and Tillies nearby. This is why we are known as the Bluefin Capitol of the world.
