Captain Mike's Chubasco Charters

Member since August 2014 Paradise Island, Bahamas
Background
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. Hatteras. At the helm of Chubasco VI is Capt. Charlton, who has been with the company for over 15 years with many additional years of fishing experience.
