Spring tuna fishing - charter and area

I hope you guys can help with this. 4-5 of my friends and I are looking to take a spring charter for tuna in MA. Im moving in mid-June so we're looking to go before then.
What are my options at that time, are their fish around? CC bay? Stellwagen?
Can you reccomend a charter?
I'd prefer to be casting for them, but trolling may be better given my friends are novices.
I want to make plans soon so please let me know! PMs are welcome.

Domenic at Coastal Charters. He trailers so wherever the fish are, he'll take you.

Coastal Charters Sportfishing : Newport, RI : FISH ON !!

That can be a bit early, depending on the bite.
tell him I sent you.

That tine of year best bet may be just to the southwest of Block Island, there is a pretty dependable early run of bluefins there.

Definitely book a trip with Dom of Coastal charters.
He's the best hands down at the spinning rod game.
Spring has plenty of fish on or near Stellwagen.

Thanks guys, looks like I am working on a date with Dom, seems like a great guy. This will be my last weekend as a MA resident and should be a good time with some friends.

You'll have a good trip. By all accounts, Dom works his ass off. Maybe we can do some fluking in May before you leave.... I'll have a net....
