Like most professional captains, Capt. Josh Ruskey grew up around boats. His father worked as a charter-boat mate out of Ocean City, Maryland, so as a teenager, Ruskey would go to sea with his dad, rigging baits, washing the boat and doing the typical grunt work. By age 20, he was a full-time traveling mate, working out of Stuart, Florida, during the winter and splitting time between Oregon Inlet in North Carolina and Ocean City in the summer. The 32-year-old ran a 48-foot Ocean called Crush Em in Los Suenos, Costa Rica, and he took the helm of a Viking 58 called Warrior in Ocean City this past summer.
