Captain Vincent Russo

 Vincent was born and raised in the coastal town of Savannah, Georgia.  His father along with his mother started Charles J. Russo Seafood, Inc., in Savannah in 1946.  By the age of twelve Vincent was already filleting fish and had learned many of his dad’s techniques.  Vincent is considered an expert at cleaning seafood and is known as one of the few who can de-bone an American Shad.  Vincent followed a family tradition of graduating from Benedictine Military School in

Savannah.  He then later graduated from the University of Georgia.  He is also a past president of the Savannah Bulldog Club.


 Vincent continued to work in the family seafood business for 18 years before operating his own catering business for over 30 years.  He has since retired.  He is an avid outdoorsman who loves both the Low Country and the panhandle of the Gulf coast.  He gets out frequently on his Bay boat from his home in Savannah and at his cabin in Keaton Beach, Florida.  Vincent also enjoys fishing from his airboat during the winter months in Florida to pursue fishing for large speckled trout and redfish using artificial lures.


 During the summer months in the warm clear Gulf Coast waters, he and his wife Monika enjoy scalloping with their  children and grandchildren.



 Captain Vince fishes with light tackle; it is a real test of skill, and he loves the feel of the tug.


 That is how he got the nickname: “Tug Addict.”
