Chubasco - 48’ Hatteras Sportfish

Harbour View Marina, East Bay …
Nassau, Bahamas

With more than 28 years in the fishing charter business, Chubasco Charters are determined to serve you and your party to the very best of their abilities. Family-owned and operated by Captain Mike Rusell and his two sons, Captains Adam and John-Michael - 7th and 8th generation Bahamians - fishing for the Chubasco team is more than just an occupation - it’s their passion.

Climb aboard the impressive 48’ Hatteras, capable of holding up to 8 anglers at the same time - bring all of your friends for a fishing trip! She’s an impressive vessel, powered by twin Detroit engines, each delivering 485 HP. The amenities don’t stop there, as outriggers are available to widen your grasp when trolling. A flybridge and a fighting chair are present as well. Comforts aren’t lagging behind either, with A/C and a multimedia on board to keep you entertained at all times.

Adam Rusell, the Captain of Chubasco, started fishing as a mate with his father at a young age. Some of the species he’ll commonly target on his trips include Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Barracuda, Snapper and a variety of other game fish frequenting the area. Each trip includes bottled water and ice, as well as all the appropriate equipment for both fishing and snorkeling. Food and other beverages are not included but can be made available on board for a surcharge with advance notice.

The crew provides all gear that may be needed on these trips. Catch cleaning and filleting is available free of charge. Children are welcome aboard as Captain Mike loves teaching young anglers the tricks of the trade. The vessel is disabled accessible and Capt. Mike invites anglers from all walks of life to come aboard and enjoy a fantastic fishing adventure!

Now he brings the same drive and passion to his fishing charter, putting his back into making sure his customers have the best experience possible. Capt. Mike is the Captain on Chubasco, the 48 ft.
