We had a great time with Captain Russell. We caught our limit of Redfish and several other species. My wife caught a “quadruple crown” with a Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Drum. We were even treated to a private bar after our trip where we learned a lot of local history. Captain Russell knows where the fish are. Proven not only by us catching them but every time we’d leave a spot other Captains would move from where they were to Captain Russell’s spot.

Captain Russell was great! He went with the flow and adapted the trip according to what the kids most wanted to do. Very informational and fun Captain.

You don’t always catch a lot of fish, but that’s why they call it fishing not catching. Russell still put us on them, just not a lot of keepers with the new size rules on trout. Brought enough to the boat to keep it fun plus got an up-close dolphin watch tour in the process. He certainly knows what he is doing and can find the fish by pure knowledge and 30+ years experience, no fish finder needed on his boat. Boat was open with enough room for the 4 of us to move around and cast easily. Had fun and will come back next year!

I asked around for a guide that would target mangrove snapper, along with any of the normal bay game fish. From the moment we stepped on the boat with Capt. Russell. we immediately clicked. He’s a super cool, but knowledgeable guy and knows the history of S Padre since he grew up there. So, we got a tour guide along with the fishing! He took us to some deep water spots around pilings and structure along the shore. We loved his boat, as we own 3 of our own, and it has a LOT of fishing room…the beauty of it is the simple, yet spacious design. And, it runs great with his fairly new Yamaha 4 Stroke. The water was beautiful and we saw many fish, including schools of mangrove, sheepshead, jack crevalle, etc. My son caught the biggest skipjack I’ve seen in all my years of fishing, we caught reds, a few specks, a sheepshead and we did catch some mangrove snapper. We made fresh ceviche with it and it was awesome! I highly recommend Capt. Russell. This is coming from a highly experienced fisherman, with my son fishing with me since he was 2 and I can honestly say that Capt. Russell is a rare gem in the guide services.

We took our 10 yr old son and grandson on the fun trip with Captain Russell. 5 hours later and they are still talking about how much fun they had! We got right up close to so many dolphins, up and close to a huge freight ship, found some cool shells and the boys each caught some fish. The whole trip was so relaxing, fun and educational too. Captain Russell was awesome as well and an excellent guide! We would highly recommend this trip to any family!!

An experience my family will never forget! A half day full of fun including dolphin and bird watching, sea shell and hermit crab hunting, and fishing. Capt. Russell has vast knowledge of the area and my history loving son soaked up every minute. We will always book with Capt. Russell for our future adventures! 5 stars and worth every penny!

We did the 3 hour play day with Captain Russell and had a blast. He had a little bit of everything scheduled for us. The kids loved seeing the shrimp boat!!! Had a great time catching a few fish and he even had recommendations on an awesome local restaurant that would cook our catch for us. Next time we are in the area we will be reaching out to Captain Russell for another day on his boat.

Captain Russel made sure we caught some fish and boy did we catch fish. He paid special attention to my autistic son and all in all we had a great time. His boat may not look so fancy but when you’re out there with multiple fishing lines in the water you will appreciate the unobstructed roomines his boat provides. I am now planning our next trip with him
