Chubasco V - 36’ Tiara Yacht

Harbour View Marina, East Bay …
Nassau, Bahamas

Chubasco Charters is a family-owned and operated fishing charter service, run by Captain Mike Rusell along with his two fisherman sons, Captains Adam and John-Michael, 7th and 8th generation Bahamians, respectively. For the Chubasco family team that’s been in the fishing business for 28 plus years, fishing is much more than something they do for a living - it’s a lifelong obsession. Whether it’s a real big game adventure that you seek, a relaxing light tackle fishing trip on the reef or a snorkeling and beaching excursion, the goal of Chubasco charters is that you don’t leave Nassau disappointed.

Chubasco V is a 36 foot long Tiara Yacht, which can comfortably accommodate parties of up to 5 people for either fishing, snorkeling or sightseeing trips. Featuring a Marlin tower, a toilet as well as a spacious cockpit, Chubasco V is operated by Captain Charlton Strachan, that has over 20 years of experience in the charter fishing industry. It dons a standard range of marine electronics such as radio, fish finder and gps, and has a fighting chair ready if any larger fish appears on the other side of the line.

Chubasco Charters offer private half day and full day charters, with half day trips usually departing at 8 AM (morning trip) and 1PM (afternoon trip), while the departure times for full day trips are more flexible. A 5-hour morning charter which departs at 7:30 in the morning can also be arranged, as well as a 5 or 6-hour afternoon charter which departs at 1 in the afternoon.

We offer box lunches that include a ham and cheese or turkey and cheese sandwich on a 6” hoagie roll, an apple, a bag of chips, cookies and a candy bar at a cost of $20.00.  Soft drinks are $6.00 per 6 pack,  local Beer Kalik or Sands is $55.00 per case (24 cans), U.S. Beer is $65.00 per case (24 cans), 6 packs are 1/4 the case price.

Captain Mike Russell comes from a long line of fishermen from the Bahamas and it shows. He developed his love for the iridescent blue sea when he was a child while watching racing sailboats. He wasn't idle about it, and he became an avid sportsman, racing for the Bahamas in two Olympic games. 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.

Overall our experience with Chubasco V was definitely not the best. We caught some small snapper and a couple barracuda. Reef fishing was not what we expected it to be. I would recommend going for the big fish only. We enjoyed the crew they seemed to be knowledgeable, but it was not quite the experience we expected. Also, we didn’t get to fish with captain Mike, which was also a disappointment.

Sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your charter, particularly the fact that Capt. Mike was not at the helm. Each of our boats has a designated crew.  Capt. Mike, the owner, has always been the Captain of our 48 ft. Hatteras’s.  There were no requests for him in your reservation.  The other boats in our fleet are skippered by experienced captains, all of whom trained under Capt. Mike and have been with our company for many years. According to Capt. Charlton there were quite a few snappers caught on your trip and I hope you enjoyed the delicious fresh fish.
