My two teenage sons and I were looking for a near/off-shore charter and found Capttain Weston Russell and the Reel Intense out of Newport Cove Marina in Riviera Beach. Booked a private 6 hour charter 2 weeks ahead. After talking with Captain Wes about what we wanted to do, decided on some off-shore kite fishing and near-shore fishing for Spinner Shark. Talked the night before about weather/sea conditions and expectations and headed out about 8:30am. After picking up some live bait (cost extra) we were on the water with kites out & rigged & first fish on (a nice 15lb Mahi) within 30 minutes. We spent the rest of the day on fish (3 Sailfish, 2 Mahi, a Bonito, and 5 Spinner Sharks - with several other almosts!) Captain Wes and his mate Chessy were great with the boys ad made it a really fun day. He knew exactly where we wanted to be, got us there quickly and spent our day with bent rods!! The Spinner Shark fishing was a blast and we had plenty of fresh Mahi for dinner that night! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a good day with a lot of action - doesn't always work out that way, but this was a great trip. Will book again next time down!
