Sportfishing Nassau Paradise Island with Chubasco Fishing Charters
Simply the best of any Nassau fishing charters
Capt. Mike Russell (right) owner and operator of Chubasco Charters. Capt. Mike a seventh generation Bahamian comes from a long line of seafaring captains. His father was a seaman for many years, both of his grandfathers were boat captains and one of his great grandfathers captained a three mast sailing schooner for many years hauling freight between the Islands.
Capt. Mikes first love of the sea was racing sailboats. Before settling down to his charter fishing career, he raced for many years in International Events in Europe, Canada and the U.S. He represented the Bahamas in two Olympic Games. A competitor by nature, Capt. Mike takes pride in his fishing achievements and the many fishing tournaments that he has won.
Capt. Adam Russell (left in photo above) is one of Capt. Mikes sons. Adam has been around boats and the sea all his life. At the age of four months, Adam made the crossing from Florida to Nassau when Capt. Mike purchased his first boat, Chubasco the 34' Trojan. He worked as a mate with Capt. Mike on Chubasco III during his summers and while attending college. Capt. Adam following in his father's footsteps is currently the captain on Chubasco Charter's newest addition Chubasco VI. From the many testimonial e-mails received from clients, he is well on the way to filling his father's shoes.
Capt. Malcolm Ingraham has been with Chubasco Charters for many years. He trained and worked as a mate with Capt. Mike on Chubasco III before acquiring his captains license. He was captain on Chubasco and now captain on Chubasco V and proving himself to be an outstanding captain. Capt. Mike had this to say about Malcolm, "he was an excellent mate, he tended his lines and was always attentive to the guest's needs. It is apparent from the many compliments I have received regarding the service on Chubasco and Chubasco V, that Malcolm as a captain has continued to apply the same fine qualities he had as a mate."
