Russ Glenn at the Helm, offers full & half day Florida inshore fishing Trips from 2550 N Banana River Dr, Merritt Island, FL 32952
With 20+ years of inshore fishing experience in the area, Captain Russ will take you to some of the finest fishing spots around. Giving you the best odds to reel in that monster fish.
The FX17 Flicker measures 17’ 1″ and is truly a wisp on the water. Just like our 19-footer, it’s built from hand-laid, bi-axial glass with high-density foam, which means it’s strong but still lightweight. Adding to the value we’ve included a limited 10-year hull warranty so regardless if you are poling skinny waters from the platform or simply seeking a casting skiff, the FX17 delivers big for years and years to come.
We welcome guests of all ages and skill levels, including novices that are new to fishing. Our captains will even help you bait hooks, catch big fish, and clean your catch. Group and private fishing charters are available for booking throughout the day.

We got a lot of fish! Captain Russ was very helpful and showed us great fishing spots I had no idea about. Definitely a better experience than to fish from a pier, where I had no luck!
I took my husband fishing for his birthday and he was happy to finally catch a fish! Captain was friendly and helpful, great experience!
I took my boyfriend on this fishing trip back in March, and we had a BLAST! I wish I had written this review the same day when the captains name was fresh on my mind, because him and his wife were AMAZING! So personable, we laughed the whole trip. They did a great job including everyone in the group and even gave my partner a few beverages, on the house, to celebrate his special day! We didn’t catch too many fish, a few sand trout, but the experience was worth it! Thanks again!
Lots of fun fishing today. The Captain took it as a personal goal to keep us on the bite. Nothing big but we caught a lot of fish. So much fun just wish we had more time.
