Captain Mauro DiBacco - Tuna Fishing out of Gloucester MA
 Your Captain Mauro DiBacco

Capt. Mauro DiBacco has been fishing the local waters from Maine to Cape Cod for the past twenty years. Targeting all offshore 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.

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.
