Captain Russell was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. He was great with my boys 18 & 21, we caught many fish although not all were in season but we still had an awesome time.

We went on our trip Friday Oct. 6th with rough water, a full moon and Hurricane Nate coming up on our door step.  Captain Russell was a proffessional, very knowledgeable and worked his tail off to get us on fish.  We had to stay close to shore due to the rough waters which Capt. Russell called us the day before to see if we still wanted to go and warned us of the tough conditions. 
He got us on fish after a tough fight and made a great memory for my son and I.  I would defiantly recommend Captain Russell and Northwest Florida Dolphin and Fishing Tours.  We will be back!

Thanks Jason, glad you all made it home safely! Hope to see you all again with better conditions. You’re a great dad, your son’s politeness and patience shows he was raised well!

We had an awesome trip with Russell fishing. We limited out on King fish and caught a big bull shark. Can’t wait to see the videos! Russell also took us to see some dolphins by shell island. He took his time and made sure everyone was catching. Russell is a very intelligent individual and knows his stuff. He was quick with rebaiting our hooks and when a line popped he jumped right to it. We are definitely going to be making another trip back.

We had a great trip with Russell as our captain. You could tell he truly enjoys his job and went out of his way to make sure our group was having a great trip. We will most definitely book with him again.

Our family of 6 had an awesome time today!  We could not have asked for a better captain!  He knows where the fish are , is very personable and taught us a lot about deep sea fishing. We recommend Captain Russell highly!!!  We will definitely do this again and again!

The captain was very informative and helpful in catching the fish we could keep. January was not the best season as many of the better species were catch and release. Non the less we stayed active and the captain did find fish. We will do this again.

Our family had a great day with Russell.  We went on a little sight seeing tour.  My two young children are begging to go back.  We saw several dolphins and even a sea turtle. We spent some time on shell island and were the only ones there.  We will definitely be booking Tussle again next time we are in town.

Ok we booked the trip to Florida and then booked the fishing trip.  We arrived in Florida on Saturday and we had the fishing trip planned for Tuesday.  Captain Russ already called us and texted directions to his boat.  Monday night he also texted us to make sure we dress warm.  We showed up Tuesday fro our adventure and it was a blast.  We have 4 children under 13 years old.  We caught red snapper, Grouper, and other fish forgetting the names.  Total of 15+ fish in a couple of hours.  We also went to see the dolphins my kids got a kick out of that.
