Full-Day Tuna Fishing with Captain Mario

1-16 Guests


Because the tuna are found 30-70 miles from the Montauk coast, this fishing trip is a full day in ocean waters off Long Island. With the tuna fish found spread over larger areas in Long Island fishing waters, the “trolling” method of fishing is used to bring many tuna together during a Montauk charter trip with Lady Grace V.

When trolling for tuna, a boat usually travels 4.5 to 7.5 knots. Slower speeds are good for heavy lures that run deeper in the water. Faster speeds are used to cover more area to find tuna. Water conditions in Long Island tuna fishing charter waters will also determine speed. If the sea is rough, the slower you will have to troll to keep your lures moving smoothly.

A tuna fishing charter experience is an amazing sport fishing experience. When a bluefin tuna hits your line – Hold On!. 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. Hooking a tuna is something you will never forget.

Water Temperature for Tuna

When the waters off of Montauk hit 60 degrees the Tuna fishing comes to life. But water temperature alone is not the only element necessary to land this big fish. Captain Mario has been fishing Tuna for decades and knows that reading a thermometer is the easy part. Reading the water itself takes a bit more expertise. Believe it or not, the color and the clarity of the water plays a critical part of where the Tuna will strike most. The bottom line is Captain Mario will bring you to the water conditions that will give you the best opportunity to land your prized tuna.

Tuna fishing charters run from June to November.
