With school bluefin within the 20-mile mark, yellows and eyeballs in the canyons, and giants off of the Cape, there has been no better time to fuel up and head off for some tuna. No boat? No problem. Call a local charter and let the pros help you cash in on the action. However you choose to get there, now is definitely the time to go!

Although the pelagic species you’ll encounter and how you target them will vary throughout New England, one theme remains consistent in this week’s report; the fishing is vastly better than this time last year. For those fishing for giant bluefin east of Chatham, it is better than it has been in a very long time. No matter how you choose to fish, the tuna seem to be cooperating. Whether you prefer to fish live baits, drag a trolling spread, or cast artificials to breaking fish, you stand a great chance of hooking a bluefin of a lifetime. Make sure your gear is of appropriate size and in top shape to do battle with these behemoths. While the excitement of such a bite may be overwhelming, remain courteous to the other boats in the fleet, as cooperation in a hot bite will lead to a better experience and more fish landed for everyone.
