Booking a charter can be tough because of the number of choices. I went with Captain Ritchie because of the reviews across several sources. We were not disappointed at all, our first fish was an approximately 10ft Hammerhead that took over an hour to get to the boat. We turned him lose so someone else can catch him again. We also got an opportunity at a couple of Black Tips. It was a great trip and we made memories that will last a lifetime. We'll certainly fish with Captain Ritchie again!

Captain Richie gets good reviews for a reason. He works his tail off to make your charter enjoyable.
We booked an evening charter and he had already been up since 3 AM for a morning charter. Unfortunately a cold front had moved in which made it difficult to fish for shark, but because of many years of experience (35yr+), He was able to hook us up. We had two nice black tips on the line but could not pull them in. It was amazing experience to watch them leap and twist out of the water. We moved inshore and and caught Pompano, Red Drum, and Bluefish. We arrived back at the dock and Captain Richie filleted all of our fish even though it was getting late and I know he was exhausted. It’s not easy handling four fisherman by yourself. Thanks again Captain Ritchie for an amazing Charter, your diligence and hardwork are much appreciated.

Boat Captain Ritchie and Theresa were warm and accommodating . He promised fish and boy did we catch them! Captain Ritchie is truly the shark whisperer. We not only caught plenty of fish; including a thirty pound black tipped shark,but he was willing to clean and filet the entire catch. Thanks for a memorable day! We will see you again.

Captain Ritchie was ready to go when we arrived, bait & tackle were waiting on us. Very nice boat. He put us on fish fast. Captain Ritchie was very patient & attentive. Bring a large cooler , you will need it to put all your fish in to take home. Nothing beats experience , and he has it. Certainly will book again with Russell’s the next time.

We were on our honeymoon and wanted so badly to go deep sea fishing. I called around another captain called Captain Ritchie and gave him my number. This was the most amazing experience we have ever had. He goes out of his way just to make sure you have the time of your life!! We will never go anywhere but here!! His girlfriend Teresa was so helpful. Them as a team make for the best trip!! They keep you entertained and informed!! Love this place!!

Captain Ritchie went above and beyond to make our fishing trip a success for everyone on board. The kids didn't get bored. They learned about jellyfish and caught many fish. My husband almost landed a black tip shark the first day. After the first day we booked two more trips for that week just because everyone had so much fun!! I highly recommend this charter to anyone!!

Captain Ritchie was a great guide. He started by taking us early to the spot where the big ones are caught. Sure enough my wife got a nice one. She won the day with a 33" Redfish and then she caught a really nice Blue. We eventually wondered over to the Jetty and caught many smaller fish while the Dolphins feasted on what we threw back. We had 3 big ones get away, but overall it was a great time. Captain Ritchie was very attentive and even cleaned all the fish for us when we got through. Would highly recommend and plan to use Ritchie when we return.
