Prince Edward Island News from Bruce Brothers Charters

During September 14,15,and 16th, 2011,

Bruce Brothers were involved with the International Canada Tuna Cup. The Tuna Cup is held every year around this time at North Lake, the Tuna Capital of the World. Jamie's boat, TunaClipper, had Team Mass Bay Guides from Scituate Mass, U.S.A. on it. Troy's boat, White Water, had team RJR from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on it. The tournament was a huge success and all teams involved right from Germany, Australia to numerous teams all through out United States and Canada participating. Team Mass Bay Guides finished the tournament in second pace missing the Championship by one point. Team RJR placed fourth but the real winners here were all the teams. Every team released three fish. The max allowed under catch and release rules for the tournament. A party tent was set up and there was live local music every evening for all to enjoy. We look forward to participating in the tournament again this year. Team RJR created a Tuna Cup video showing some highlights of their three trips to the fishing grounds off North Lake.. The Tuna Cup was a lot of fun with Mass Bay Guides and RJR. We enjoyed having them with us and look forward to their continued friendship.

In August/September 2011

We had the pleasure of hosting Tim Simpson of BlueWater Boats and Sportsfishing Magazine from Australia. Tim is a world renowned angler who has been travelling the world for many years now in search of the most amazing sportsfishing there is to offer. His extensive experience with angling techniques was a pleasure for us to be involved with. Tim became a great friend during his one week stay with us and we look forward to hosting him and his BlueWater " Readers Trip" this August/September 2012! 
We also had the pleasure of hosting our great friend, the All Tackle World Record Holder at 1,496lbs,...Ken Fraser. Ken accompanied Tim on his trip with us for the first 4 days and it was fantastic to see Tim's childhood dream come true of landing a Giant Bluefin Tuna with Ken by his side offering tips from an Old Pro! This was Ken's first trip back to P.E.I. fishing for tuna in many years. It was amazing to see the sparkle in his eyes of glory days gone by, lived again!

Big Water Adventures

Mark having been an experienced angler who has been to many Top Big Game locations could not believe the power of these fish.Mark came prepared to fish five days to get enough footage needed for the show. We went for two and a half days. Mark is a great personality to host a show and we know you'll be happy when the show airs. Mark is coming back in 2012 primed once again to tackle the Giants of P.E.I. Mark's 2011 season shows promise to provide action packed fishing!!

  This past 2012 season

We hosted the "BlueWater Magazine's- Readers Trip 2012" The Readers Trip was held during the last week of August and featured anglers from all over Australia and United States. The anglers all stayed at " The Inn at St.Peters " There was three teams of four anglers per boat with Captain Troy Bruce~White Water, Captain Craig Veld~Lady Dawn, and Captain Jamie Bruce~TunaClipper being your hosts.  BlueWaters very own Tim Simpson accompanied them as did IGFA Anglers Digest host~ Bill Boyce. Tim and Bill captured each days fishing with some fantastic photography!! In 6 days fishing 14 bluefin had been hooked with 9 of them being successfully released. We are excited to be hosting the "Readers Trip" again in 2014.

    A quote from participant Keith Johnson..." Any trip where one of the team gets to catch-and -release a fish over 1000 pounds has got to be good! As for the charter operation, you couldn't find a nicer and more obliging group of blokes to fish with. Of course, it certainly helps when the skipper keeps you well fed with lobster sandwiches, oysters, and freshly made seafood chowder between bites."
