If you've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to hook that huge Bluefin Tuna, then this trip with Captain Jason is the trip for you! With years of experience hitting these truly majestic fish, Captain Jason has all the necessary skill and know-how to put you on the fish and help you bring one home. Depending on the time, season, weather, and water temperature, Bluefin can exhibit a variety of feeding behaviors that only an experienced captain can predict and understand.

Whatever you do, you can be confident that Captain Jason is doing all he can to get you a prizewinner! In addition to Tuna, there's also Atlantic Halibut, Mahi-Mahi, White Marlin, and more! These fish are all a blast to catch and great on the dinner table as well. Captain Jason's 26' SeaVee centerl console is powered by a 300-HP Suzuki engine, so you can be out in deep water fast.
