Top Notch Tuna Charters deep sea fishing in North Lake for Bluefin Tuna.

Giant Bluefin Tuna Fishing Charter

Top Notch Tuna Charters is located out of beautiful North Lake, Prince Edward Island. North Lake is considered the Tuna Capital of the world. Fishing the waters of North Lake, you will be happy to catch some GIANT Bluefin Tuna!

Top Notch Tuna Charters crew has 20 years of experience landing these monster fish. Since the water in Prince Edward Island is colder, the bigger fish migrate towards North Lake to feed on baitfish. With that, Captain Jenkins has been hand feeding the Giant Bluefin Tuna right off the boat. This is why it's normal to land an 800-1100 pounder on any given day.  

When on board one of the tuna charters, you will have the chance to literally get up close and personal with Giant Bluefin tuna, one of the true giants of big game saltwater fishing. If you are looking to knock a Bluefin tuna off of your bucket list then take a tuna charter with Top Notch Tuna Charters, as the elusive Bluefin tuna can be found within minutes, only 5 miles off shore.

Catch and Release Policy

Tuna charters here on Prince Edward Island are on a catch and release basis. We use barbless circle hooks and gear that has a minimum breaking strength of 180lbs, as per government regulations. This allows us to catch and release Giant Bluefin tuna as healthy as possible. We take pride in our catch and release format during our tuna charters on P.E.I. as we want to preserve the magnificent Giant Bluefin tuna for further generations.

About the Crew

Mark Jenkins has been fishing commercially for lobster and tuna for 20 years. He attended college and received papers for Electronic Engineering Technician. Two weeks after graduating he bought his fishing gear and has never looked back. 

Cody Jenkins, who is Mark’s brother, bought his fishing gear in 2009. Cody also went to school and studied electrical mechanical. These brothers are fourth generation fishermen, so it is pretty hard to keep them off the water. You will have a lot of fun with these guys on your tuna charter as you experience a thrill of a lifetime.
