The waters of Plymouth, MA have long been known for their cultural and historical significance. After all, this is where the Mayflower landed after her first voyage. In the years that have passed, this area has become famous for another reason—its seriously productive fishing grounds! Come aboard Cuz Charters for an angling adventure packed full of excitement, history, and top-notch species.

Captain Ed Kislauskis has been fishing these waters for 40 years, so he really does know them like the back of his own hand. He prides himself on running a charter company that has been built through word-of-mouth recommendations, and has something to offer every kind of fishermen. Capt. Ed can’t wait to take you fishing for multiple delicious saltwater species!

You’ll be heading out on your adventure in a 29’ Shamrock vessel. She can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers, and her walkaround deck means you’ll have plenty of space to reel in your catch. There are also outriggers for maximum fishability! Onboard, you’ll find top-notch navigational equipment, lifejackets, and a full toilet with a shower. You’ll be guaranteed a safe and comfortable ride out to the hottest fishing spots.

As for the species you’ll be reeling in? It all depends on when you decide to join Capt. Ed but, no matter which season it is, you’ll be spoilt for choice! If you’d like to reel in the famous Striped Bass, or some seriously impressive Bluefin Tuna, then visit these plentiful waters between June and the beginning of October. Bluefish season is in September and October. Not sure where to start? Capt. Ed loves customizing his trips for his guests, so just get in touch!

Your trip includes top-notch Shimano rods and reels. Your captain offers a unique gastronomic experience, too—he’ll take you to a local restaurant located on the dock, where your catch will be expertly cooked for you. Come aboard Cuz Charters, and get ready to see just what it is that makes these waters so special!

"40 years fishing Cape Cod Bay and the Plymouth, Kingston, and Duxbury harbors. Recognized for fishing success and hospitality. Ex-med school research faculty (UMass Med), athletic coach and biotech executive enjoying my favorite pastime on the water." Captain Ed Kislaukis has been fishing these waters for 40 years, so it's safe to say he knows them like the back of his hand. He's chartered all over the world, and recently started chartering with as a Masters-certified 50-ton vessel captain. He has some other serious bragging rights under his belt, too - he has a PhD and has set up and funded 6 biotech companies and is able to arrange up to 7 vessels for company retreats. As well as this, he also has some impressive catches to his name. How does a 40+ lb Striped Bass sound? Or maybe 20 lb Bluefish, or Bluefin Tuna? Capt. Ed prides himself on the success of his charter being down to word-of-mouth in this area, and he can't wait to introduced you to these plentiful waters!
