Bluefin Tuna FishingCaptains Andy and Rich meet up with Lou Grazioso of Stripermania fishing charters at the Glory Hole 50 miles south of Long Island. They score a bunch of big bluefin to well over 100lbs on relatively light tackle. The techniques in this show can be used by anyone who targets bluefin on either bait or jigs. If you have questions about any of the equipment used during the show, please contact us.

“The seas were lousy and Capt Lou G and his crew took a long time to complete our rendezvous.  Unfortunately, it started raining and we had to put the cameras away.  While we are waiting for the rain to stop I hook this fish and then precede to hold it 150ft down until the cameras are ready which is at least 20 minutes.  During this time I realize we forgot to put the correct fighting belts aboard and now I only have an lightweight inshore belt to wrangle this fish which is now completely revived.  Needless to stay it almost killed me.  I have wrestled much bigger yellowfin on the same outfit with the correct belt and crushed them.  The lesson here is simple; bring the correct gear and put as much pressure as possible on all tunas at all times!!!” Capt Andy LoCascio
