This type of fishery has exploded here in New England
and Cape Cod over the past five years. Each tuna fishing
season gets better and better, especially here on Cape
Cod. It is common in one day of tuna fishing to catch
tuna from 20 lb class all the way to 200+ lb class fish
and all sizes in between. It is absolutely incredible!
There is nothing like trying to set your spread out in the morning and not being able to get all your rods out because you keep hooking up on these tenacious little Blue Fin Tuna. We fish 20, 30, and 50 Class
reels on custom fishing rods. These rods are custom
built for us according to our specifications for stand
up fishing and we always have our 70 and 80 Class reels on our custom made rods waiting in case we run into bigger fish.
We fish primarily with our own custom spreader bars and
squid rigs as shown below.

Trolling is the method that we commonly use while
fishing for school Blue Fin Tuna. We employ a lot of
different baits; squid rigs, green machines, and other
hard plastic and rubber lures. Trolled behind birds,
these work very well also. We also have two spinning
rods set up for short casting at breaking fish around
the boat. I cannot recall how many times we have been
fighting fish and have had Blue Fins breaking and
chasing bait all around us. So grab some friends,
family, or business associates and come on a Cape Cod
charter fishing trip for this great fishery.
with the wizard and catch the magic!
