Captain Tyler Macallister
Captain Tyler Macallister has been fishing for giant bluefin tuna since he was 17, when he caught his first giant bluefin, July 1985. His passion is harpooning giant bluefin at the end of the pulpit of his custom built 38’ Holland, F/V Cynthia C. 2. His first boat, the F/V Cynthia C., a 35 Duffy, he built himself with help from a few friends was launched in 2009. He has also caught many giants on rod and reel, including a fish that tipped the scales at 1060#. To date, the largest fish he’s landed measured 126” long and estimated at 1150# or more.
When not bluefin tuna fishing, he also pursues striped bass, bluefish and many of the different ground fish recreationally on charters or out with family and friends. When not fishing, he can be found in the woods deer and turkey hunting. You can see many of the fishing adventures on the F/V Cynthia C. & F/V Cynthia C. 2 on his website https://fvcynthiac.com/, follow Team Cynthia C. on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/fvcynthiac/ or connect with us on Instagram at fvcynthiac.
