2014 Hyannis Tuna Fest - June 19-21

2013 Results!!

Castafari will be presenting the Fourth Annual 2014 Hyannis Tuna Fest hosted by Hyannis Marina and Trader Ed's Restaurant June 19 - 21. Tuna Fest 2013 brought Cape Cod another world-class bluefin tuna sportfishing competition, celebrating one of the best and most thriving bluefin tuna fisheries in the world. We're looking forward to doing even bigger and better in 2014! We're very excited to announce that there will be two separate weigh stations in 2014. One will be in Hyannis on tournament grounds and the other will be at the town landing in Green Harbor or Scituate. This will allow boats to weigh in fish at either stations. The Southshore weigh station will be streaming live info and footage to the main station in Hyannis. We're also excited to welcome back Contender Boats as our title sponsor, as well as all of our other supporting sponsors who help make this event happen.

All three events so far have been a lot of fun. Check out who did what! (see results) The FOURTH ANNUAL 2013 HYANNIS TUNA FEST is open to the public, catering to all boat owners and offshore fishing enthusiasts. Everyone is welcome, and the weigh station, sponsor tent, live music, and entertainment are available for all to enjoy. There were 62 participating vessels for the 2013 event.

The 2014 Hyannis Tuna Fest will also be working in conjunction with ONE MISSION which is a public charity dedicated to enhancing the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. So far Tuna Fest has raised $18,000 for One Mission. This year we will also be hosting a silent auction for the foundation.

The 2014 Tuna Fest will offer $20,000 in cash prizes, Simrad Electronics award, premium tackle prizes, big money calcuttas, reggae band, steel drum band, Miss 2014 Tuna Fest bikini contest, lobster and steak dinners, marine industry vendor displays, and some of the best big game bluefin tuna fishing in the world! The early season was strategically chosen for this event as it is a highly productive time for Cape Cod bluefin tuna fishing. Whatís also nice about this early season bluefin fishery is that itís very close to shore...sometimes within a mile off the beach! Tuna Fest offers an exciting format of rules which allows for many different fishing strategies. Please check the Schedule, Prizes, and Rules pages for more information.

Castafari will be working around the clock to align Tuna Fest with reputable industry sponsors who will be setting up booths, donating prizes, and contributing to the premium tournament captainís bags provided to each registered vessel. Participants can expect:
