Overnight 24- Hour Tuna Trips
24 hour trip
Long Range Fishing
When you book a 24 hour Overnight private charter, you can expect to go about 60-90 miles offshore, or quite a ways North or South, depending on where the Tuna are. Some of our favorite targets for this trip include the Outer Banks, San Clemente, Butterfly Bank, and depending on where the fish are, even up north.
The overnight charter departs on any given night at around 9pm. After getting bait at the bait barge, your party will head to see. You will enjoy several hours with the boys drinking beer on the back deck under the moon, until its time to get some shut eye.
We wake you up about 4am, and feed you a hearty breakfast, then its time to go to work. Before you are even awake, we have been searching for sonar marks on the side scan sonar. Hopefully by now we have located a good sized school. Even though its dark, we can still find them. Drop down a heavy glow-in-the-dark flat fall jig and hope for a tuna!
Once the sun comes up we go on the move, and begin trolling, looking for patties, birds, foaming fish, anything that shows signs of life. Even dolphin pods can indicate the location of fish.
Depending on the species that we spot, we can throw iron at them, or fly a kite at bluefin, or fish live bait. What ever seems to be working on that day.
As always, your fish will be cleaned and put on ice until the end of the trip. Be sure to bring a large ice chest to store your catch!
Coffee, Water, Soda, and Snacks all being included. This trip includes morning donuts and coffee and lunch! 3 hot meals included for each passenger. Sleeping accommodations provided.
All of our private charters have your group being taken care of by a Captain, and two crew. Price includes Fuel, Bait, Boat, Tackle, and Rod & Reel rentals.
The only thing NOT included is a fishing license and any alcoholic beverages you wish to bring with you. (Coolers are OK!)

PRIMARY TARGET SPECIES:
Although smaller than the Bluefin, this ferocious fish puts up a fight you will not soon forget.
Not technically a tuna, but in the same weight class, it is known for the best tasting sashimi on earth.
