About Your Trip

Let new fishing adventures begin with Captain Russell! No matter if it’s your first time on the water or if you’re a seasoned professional, Captain Russell will lead the way!

Test your casting accuracy as you target the Black Seabass, Cobia, Gag Grouper, King Mackerel / Kingfish, Mahi Mahi / Dorado, Mangrove Snapper, Red Grouper, Red Snapper, Redfish, and Tiger Shark that inhabit these waters. Hook on some live bait (provided by Captain Russell free
of charge) and have yourself a day!

You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Russell’s 29-foot center console equipped with a fishfinder, snorkeling equipment, live bait well, multimedia system, a wireless trolling motor (which is great for sneaking up on those easily spooked fish), and an ice box.

Captain Russell will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Don’t forget to bring food and drinks for the day, sunscreen, a hat, and a cooler with ice to take home your day’s catch.

Come on down to Panama City Beach and make some lifelong memories with Captain Russell!

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!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
