We booked a PM trip since the morning temperatures were so cool.  The fishing was slow in the beginning.  Towards the end of our 4 hours, the fish started biting better.  Capt Ritchie stayed past our booked time to allow us to catch more fish. Capt Ritchie told us up front he would try to give us the best experience he could, and he delivered.  We had a great experience and would definitely use Capt Ritchie for future trips.

Richie was awesome! Very kind and good with young kids. He was interactive and kept it entertaining even on a slow and cold day. Would highly recommend.

Thanks Conner , Logan, , Emma , Luke and my other two crew members for going fishing with me as well! You guys were very enjoyable to have even if the fishing was slower than expected and the weather was very chilly! I appreciate you all and hope to see you again on a warmer day and we will catch even more fish than before

We did a 4-hour AM trip to start off the weekend. We rode out to where the fish were and immediately began loading the cooler with Sheephead and Reds! Also hooked a few rays, one of which was huge. Thanks to Captain Russell for a great time. We took a loaded cooler home and hosted a fish fry for dinner. He even took a lot of pics along the way for us to remember the trip by. Fish with Russell and you’ll have a good time!
