Well where do we start..... 3 giant tuna and a 15 foot thresher shark leaping 15 feet in the air. Endless amounts of humpback & fin whales putting on a surface show everywhere you looked. We were so close, you could smell their fishy breath they surfaced for air. Let's get to the fishing... EPIC! We were a seasoned bunch of older fisherman from Florida that came up to get lucky for a bucket list check off!! Well....300lb, 350lb and a 650lb tuna filled our bucket overflowing. Gray haired middle aged men holding onto a giant rod, drag ripping out, yelling fish on! A WOW kinda day. Stan, our large bearded mate was with out a doubt.. a Pro. The captain, ....well what can I say..... Capt Jr. Was on his game this special day. We were honestly just hoping to hook 1 ..... ...instead 3 giant tunas gobbled our baits up like candy. Again.... thank you crew for an epic day in Gloucester. We got lucky on this blind date of a 1st time charter in Gloucester!!! We fished with the pros!!!

I’ve been on a few charters , this by far has been the best day of my life! Captain mauro and his mate know these waters and their fish. We hooked THREE Blue Fin Tuna that Day!! Youre gonna have a fun day of fishing and an experience of a lifetime. His prices are comparable and reasonable. He just wants everyone to be able to enjoy the thrill of fishing . You may have to book months in advance but I highly suggest you going with Kelly and charters if you want to have the best experience of fishing .

First let me start with the Captain and his first mate! There are none better than Captain Mauro and first mate Stan. I have been on several charters over the years and this one was by far the best if only for their enthusiasm and courtesy. They took the time to fully explain every they were doing and make sure that we put it into practice!! We were part of the entire fishing process from catching bait to monitoring the sets and then ultimately pulling our catch on board! It doesn’t stop there! After the crew caught a giant bluefin, they included us on the process of “dressing” the fish and preparations for market. The entire day was one of my all time best experiences! We are already planning our trip for next year and will positively not book with anyone else but the Kelly Ann!!

Thanks to Kelly Ann charters, I had the thrill of fighting 110 inch Giant Bluefin Tuna. It is an experience like no other. Captain Mauro and first mate Stan are the perfect team they definitely know how to catch fish. I recommend this family run boat to everyone. There are trips for all ages to enjoy. Next year cannot come soon enough for me.. cannot wait to go again.
