Spent the morning with Russell on his 25’ Parker fishing and watching the dolphins. He was very accommodating and gave us everything we asked for. Plenty of fish, dolphins everywhere and had great knowledge of the area! We’ll see Russell next year when we return on vacation. So fun!

Captain Russell did a great job taking my three boys and I out for a half day fishing charter. We caught seven different species and had fish to take home and grill that night. I would book with him again next time I'm on vacation in the area!
