“Bob and I just wanted to thank you again for our amazing fishing day!! You took us out last minute and you put us on TWO GIANT TUNAS!!! Your experience really shows up, especially when we have tight lines. The way you guided your mates and worked the boat to stay out of trouble was just amazing! Also you have a very comfortable vessel. The Subdivider is the perfect fishing machine!!! We couldn’t have had a better experience!!  You are now our Captain for life!!” See you next year!

“Our trip with Capt. Johnny on the “Subdivider” was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had. It’s truly impossible to explain the feeling you get when the line rips and the reel starts singing. We caught a huge fish and it’s only because of the guidance and expertise of the Captain and his first mate. If you want real people and a real experience fishing for Giant Bluefin Tuna, and an incredible first hand story, Capt. Johnny and his crew can provide it. It was the experience of a lifetime.”

“Hello to everyone from Gloucester Charter Connection! I am writing just to thank Captain Johnny and first mate Joe for a really great fishing experience!  My brother, his friends and I have been avid fisherman all our lives and have high expectations for a fishing trip and our experience was really great. We all really enjoyed being able to reel in herring, mackerel, cod, haddock, pollock, scup, and even a 12 ft shark! We’re booking our Bluefin Tuna hunt next. Thanks again and we will pass on the good word.”
Ray R. - Upstate New York

“Amazing World Class fishing and experience! A group of 3 of us took part in a fishing charter with Captain Johnny Johnson in October 2016 and again for the “Bluefin Blowout” in July 2017.  The experience of reeling in a giant bluefin tuna is unimaginable and hard to describe! The fishing was world class, the hospitality was beyond expectation, the boat was comfortable and the scenery beautiful. If you are looking for the experience of a lifetime and honestly one that will change your life then I highly highly recommend a charter with Captain Johnny Johnson though the Gloucester Charter Connection GCC.”
Sean - Upstate New York

“This is THE place to charter with if you want to catch fish. We had the time of our lives and I’d recommend Gloucester Charter Connection to anyone who wants to spend a day on the Atlantic Ocean and catch fish. We landed a giant Bluefin Tuna by noon and spent the rest of the day catching Bluefish and Cod.”

J.S. - Providence, Rhode Island

“Me and some friends wanted to go shark fishing and we looked at a couple other charter outfits. Gloucester Charter Connection looked like the best and they didn’t let us down. Great choice. We left the docks before sunrise and were hooked up by 7:30am! What a great time. We’ll be back! Next time we want to hunt for Bluefin Tuna.”

A Message From Captain Johnny Johnson

My Dad caught his first world record blue catfish when I was five years old. He broke another world record when I was nine. I’ve been chasing giant fish ever since.

Today my true passion is hunting the giant Bluefin Tuna. My fishing boat, the SubDivider, is recognized as one of the best charter fishing boats in the Gloucester charter fishing fleet.

I can honestly say at 3:30 in the morning, as the boat turns past the breakwater in Gloucester Harbor, I still get butterflies in my stomach knowing that I have the chance to catch a thousand pound Bluefin Tuna that day!

Although I can’t guarantee you a giant tuna on every trip, I can promise that myself and my crew will hunt as hard as we know how and put our expertise and experience to work for you to find and put you on a school of giant Bluefin Tuna.

So if you’re interested in the hunt of a lifetime, drop me a line using the ONLINE INQUIRY FORM BELOW or call me at 978-515-7739 and I’ll customize a Bluefin Tuna fishing charter or ground fishing charter for you!

Tight lines,
Captain Johnny Johnson

Bluefin Tuna Charters

Last season Gloucester Charter Connection bluefin charter boats combined landed more than 200 Giant Bluefin Tuna. It was probably the best fishing season in recorded history and all of our clients had an ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME. If landing a fish that might be bigger than YOU is on your bucket list, a Giant Bluefin Tuna, Gloucester Charter Connection can help you make your dream come true. Our Captains have years of experience and know HOW TO FIND TUNA and know HOW TO LAND THEM!


“AMAZING. We were hooked up by 7AM and landed a monster bluefin tuna 42 minutes later. We hooked up again later in the day twice! Our Captain and the crew made our charter more amazing than we ever imagined. We’ll be back this year and plan on doing the overnight charter!” T.J. – Boston, Massachusetts

Ground Fishing Charters

Full and half-day fishing charters are available to catch your fill of Haddock, Giant Pollock or Striped Bass (Stripers). What a great way to spend a day on the water with family and friends and fill your freezer with fish YOU’VE CAUGHT at the same time. We filet and bag your catch for you before you leave the boat. These are not head boats, you are chartering a private commercial fishing vessel for a one-of-a-kind trip.


“My 3 kids had a great time and all they do is talk about coming back to Gloucester to go fishing. Your office team and the boat crew made everything easy. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I’d recommend Gloucester Charter Connection to anyone. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll have a great time!” G.J. – Worcester, Massachusetts
