My 7 year old son and I booked a 4 hour morning fishing trip with Capt. Russell.  His son Jamie came along who is also a fishing captain.  They both exceeded our expectations.  The boat was in great condition and was extremely clean.  Both of them were beyond friendly and great with my son.  The only thing that didn’t cooperate was the weather.  It was cold and rainy and we ended up having to come in early because my son was freezing!  Even though we had to cut our trip off after just 2 hours, we had a fantastic experience and caught a dozen big fish!  I would highly recommend booking a trip with Russell Coastal Fishing.
