Our departure times are 6:00AM, 9:00AM, and 12:00 Noon, 3:00PM and 6:00PM. Whether you're a beginner, a family with small kids, or an experienced fisherman these trips are a great time.

We fish for Bluefin Tuna. They range is size from 30lbs to 800lbs. The best time of day to catch Tuna is at sunrise therefore departure times are very early in the morning, sometimes as early as 2:30AM. Tuna and whales feed often feed together so bring a camera, as the mammal show can be quite spectacular. Our success rate on Tuna trips is about 95 percent. Trolling is the preferred method of fishing however if the opportunity presents itself we will cast jigs and lures to the smaller fish.

Monster fishing at its best, these trips are right out of a scene from Jaws. A chum slick is set up to attract sharks. It takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to attract the sharks that’s when the action begins. 50lb tackle is used to fight them. Stand up or sit down, your choice, but hang on these babies can fight. Blue sharks, some weighing over 300lb, are the most common. With any luck a Mako or Thresher will be caught. Sharks are GUARANTEED on these trips. Departure time is 7:00AM.

  • Featured Fish: Shark
  • 1-6 People $2,000.00

I went out on a tuna charter with Bob and his deck mate (Scott) in sept 2018 - he is without question the best captain and fisherman on the island. Not only did we see him in action for 12 hours but every other charter on the island will tell you that the Albacore is at the top of the list and has been for decades. We caught two huge tunas that were, unfortunately, over the size limit to keep. The only thing I would have changed is I wish we had known that the monthly quota had been hit for keeping large tuna (only to be able to sell). Our trip was the last weekend in Sept so we would have pushed it out until early Oct so we could have been able to actually bring one in. Bob and Scott run a first class charter operation and I will never go out with anyone else. They have earned a repeat customer for life.

Bobby Decosta is simply one of the fishiest guys you could ever encounter. he knows the waters around nantucket island as well as anyone and catches fish as consistently as anyone. Stripped bass and tuna fishing? look now further. it doesnt matter the time of year or the weather, trust me. i had a crew out with him in 6 foot seas last september and they came home with a bunch of pigs!
