As a Native of the Florida Keys, Capt. James Chappell has been fishing these beautiful waters in search of big fish and good times for over 20 years. Capt. James Knows what you want to do and that is CATCH A LOT OF FISH! Just like the name says, that's what we will do! A lifetime of experience, the absolute nicest boat and nicest tackle found on any charter boat in Islamorada!

Captain James is as knowledgeable as any captain in the keys. After catching a well full of live bait, he put us on the fish right away. We had our limit of yellowtail by 11am. On to the next spot at 30kts in 2-4+' seas....More

James showed us a great time out at the Islamorada sandbar. The boat was beautiful and more than accommodating for the 5 of us. We will definitely be calling him again!
