Hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in. Our guest on this episode of the SeaBros Fishing Podcast is Captain Jamie Bruce of Bruce Brothers Fishing Charters based out of Prince Edward Island (PEI) Canada.
We have been close friends and basically family members with Jamie, Troy, and the rest of the Bruces for more than a decade now. Over the last 11 years we have been fortunate enough to enjoy many great days on and off the water.
We cover A LOT in this conversation. Jamie explains the history of fishing, specifically for giant bluefin tuna, within 4 generations of Bruce family fishermen. He discusses how the charter fishery evolved in PEI back in the 70s, and what it looks like today. We tell many fish stories, but focus primarily on what we have seen, learned, and changed over the last 10 years of fishing together and separately; both in Canada and New England. Some of the topics we cover are:

  • Hooking fish (giant bluefin)
  • Chumming and hand-feeding
  • Fighting fish
  • Landing and releasing fish
  • Drag pressure
  • The resurgence of the bluefin tuna population
  • Tagging fish and studies that we have been a part of
  • Charter client pressure

We think you guys will enjoy this episode. Jamie was the perfect guest to end the 1st season of the SeaBros Fishing Podcast. We always enjoy catching up with him.
Thank you to everyone for listening!
Stay Tight,
Bryan & Taylor
