Captain Mauro DiBacco

Capt. Mauro DiBacco has been fishing the local waters from Maine to Cape Cod for the past twenty years. Targeting all Captain Mauro DiBaccooffshore and inshore species such as Striped Bass, Bluefish, Cod, Haddock, Pollock, Shark species including Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks and Thresher Sharks and Tuna including Giant Bluefin Tuna and also School Bluefin Tuna which I target many different ways from trolling squid rigs, jigging while adrift, casting top water lures or live lining, to me it’s all about the sport.

Being a member of The Northeast Charterboat Captain’s Association and, NACO as well as the Newburyport Chamber of Commerce helps to obtain the local knowledge of where to fish my next day out. It’s not only about what you do on the water but also the intel you gather on land the day or days before your fishing trip that makes the difference.

It’s the love of being out on the water that does it for me. Whether its taking children Mackeral Fishing or Striped Bass Fishing, fishing in tournaments or fishing commercially, there is no better place to be.

First Mate Kenny Csaplar





FIRST MATE: Captain Kenny grew up fishing the waters of Buzzards Bay, Nantucket Sound, and Boston Harbor crewing for charter captains and fishing on a few different small center consoles. Kenny became proficient with inshore species from a young age, targeting Striped Bass from Rhode Island to Maine. After graduating from St. Sebastian's in 2007, he saw his first giant Bluefin while crewing on a friends father's boat in a tournament; a beautiful 94" fish. While pursuing a liberal arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Kenny spent summers working at West Marine and fishing whenever he could with friends or alone on his family's 23' Pursuit "Don't Tell Mom". Upon graduation, Kenny started commercial tuna fishing full time out of Cape Cod, but after one season made a switch to a corporate job. Two years later the pull of the ocean, his love of Bluefin fishing, and the unique opportunity to mate on the Kelly Ann made him make an abrupt lifestyle change, quit his job, and go fishing. He looks forward to many successful years to come with captain Mauro. When not fishing, Kenny lives in South Boston and enjoys reading, surfing, playing slow pitch softball, and spending time with his friends.
