Bluefin Tuna Fishing Charter-maine
Maine Public Land
DescriptionThe Gulf of Maine hosts a variety of large game fish in the summer months. The largest being the bluefin tuna. Bluefin Tuna Bluefin Tuna range in size from 100 to 1000+ pounds. The bluefin tuna is one of the fastest, strongest and most resilient of all salt water species. These magnificent fish are capable of swimming 50 mph. When you hook up with a bluefin, hold on! The season opens in early June. In the early season, we begin trolling with squid spreader bars, daisy chains or other 'secret' techniques. Later in the season we begin live lining at anchor or adrift as the tuna make there way to the ledges to begin their feeding routine. Bluefin tuna that fail to meet the commercial size limits may be kept by the party or tagged and released to be caught another day. Tuna Fishing Policy All Tuna greater than the 73' curved fork length will be sold by the Kristin K under general category rules during the open season. All proceeds from the sale of the fish will go to the Kristin K and not the chartered crew. The tails and head of sellable fish may be kept by the crew for mounting purposes. All fish under 73' will be either kept by the crew or released. The decision is up to the fishing party.
