Episode 335: Canada’s Giant Bluefin Tuna

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us to North Lake on the far end of Prince Edward Island.

A run East in the RAM takes us to one of the top Bluefin Tuna destinations in the world.  Charlie and Terri absolutely love this trip and look forward to it every year and they simply can’t get enough of these hard-pulling giants.  Once again, they join up with Captain Tony MacDonald of Tony’s Tuna Fishing for this incredibly fun fishery.  Everything about this trip is enjoyable, first you catch some bait, then set up the kite for an exciting strike, and before long it’s time to hang on tight for a lengthy battle.
