Captain Russ Lawrence has been fishing the Vineyard and Elizabeth Islands for nearly 60 years. His experience in fishing methods include fly fishing, surf casting, trolling and drifting bait. While fishing from his well equipped 23' Sailfish Center Console charter boat, "Mooncusser" you can be assured that he will do his best to get you on the fish. The equipment supplied is time tested for its reliability for he builds his own rods and ties his own flies. If you prefer, bring your own favorites.
