Bluefin Tuna Fishing

October 7, 2013

September 19, 2013

Another year has rolled by and we once again headed north for Atlantic bluefin tunas. My dad, my buddy Mike, his dad Rob and I flew up to Antigonish, Nova Scotia to test our arms and backs with these fish. We started fishing on the 20th and 21st of September with Steven’s Bluefin Charters, which you can find on Facebook. We had only one bite fishing in front of the harbor, it was tough, but we were having a good time. On the 22nd Steven put us on the fish. It was a slow start to the trip but for the next five days we caught bluefin tuna up to 1000 lbs.

Toward the end of the trip I brought up my Lady Pamela II captains for some fishing R & R. The bite was still on and captains JJ, Darin and Kirk all got to fight a few big blues. This is some of the best fishing in the world. Some days you can hand feed the tunas on the side of the boat. They are just everywhere; it’s like fishing in a barrel!

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
