Didn't have a lot of luck but we caught a few fish and had a huge tarpon on that broke off, 7 foot 200 lb. We did get to see him when he jumped out of the water. Capt. Chris was friendly and knowledgeable of that area and techniques. Will definitely book again in future trips.

I booked two trips with Chris Rush during Thanksgiving week. We cancelled the first due to his warning that it was too windy, although we know other charters were operating that day. The day we went was marginal fishing, but I don't hold that against him. What I do hold against him is that we paid him $1000 for the... More

After booking a 6 hour Offshore trip with Captain Chris from Rush Charters for my 14 year old son and some of his friends, I attempted to call several times to confirm the reservation. With no return call for 6 days I might have recognized where this was headed from the get-go. The night before Captain Chris calls to let... More

Well, let's just get it out there, we didn't catch any big one's, but it wasn't for a lack of trying. Captain Patrick tried, and tried, spot after spot, to find some big ones, but they just were not hungry. We didn't care - we were on a boat in the ocean and in the bay areas on a beautiful... More

After having the misfortune of scheduling a fishing trip with Captain Chris the same week Tropical Storm Debby came to Sanibel, I was worried we wouldn't get a chance to fish. Instead of canceling Capt. Chris rescheduled after the poor weather had passed. We had a wonderful time on the trip. Even though fishing can be miserable after a storm... More

I booked with Rush Charters based on the glowing reviews they received here on TripAdvisor. Since that was what drove my decision, I wanted to be sure to add my feedback to the pool and perhaps save someone else from a poor experience. Everything at first was great. I booked online with Capt. Lacey, she called the day before as... More

We took a tarpon trip w/ Rush Charters on 4/13/12. Had the pleasure of having both Capt Lacy and Capt Josh on board. We hooked up w/ a monster just off Sanibel that our buddy fought for 2 1/2 hours (he was spent). Josh estimated that was about 150 lbs. The whole time we were hooked up, there were tarpon... More

I have been fishing with Chris for 10+ years (and Lacey since they were married a few years ago). We have brought clients down each year during the tarpon run in May off Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We have always caught fish but more importantly, we've always had a great time. A great team ... especially when one of them... More

Been fishing with Rush Charters and Captain Chris for a few years now on our annual vacation to Sanibel. Always gets us on fish and we always have fun. Highly recommend Rush Charters.

My family and I have fished with Chris for ten years. There is no finer, harder working, and more fun guide in SW Florida. I am a serious flyfisherman and Chris' knowledge and determination to put me on fish is second to none. Chris and I fish hard during tarpon season and this has given me the opportunity to observe...
