Owner description: 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!

For the 2nd year, Captain James has created priceless memories for me, my father and little brothers. Not only does the Captain deliver Alottafish, he is personable and a good guy to spend the day with (or 3 days). Captain James can not only get you to the fish, he can also recommend the right restaurants in Islamorada to prepare the catch to perfection (after his perfect fillet cuts). Anyone who fishes without Captain James is wasting their time!

I've gone fishing with Captain James at Catchalottafish Charters twice now and each time we did exactly that...catch a lot of fish! Captain James is the hardest working fishing charter captain I've ever gone out with. He's extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and best of all a good guy who makes fishing fun like it's supposed to be! I'm looking forward to going out with him again next year and hopefully many many ore times. If you're looking for a great fishing experience in The Keys that's eventful, fruitful, and fun...get hooked up with Captain James at Catchalottafish Charters. You will not be disappointed.

Captain James worked extremely hard to make sure we had a good time fishing and that we went home with the fish we wanted.

We were in the Keys for My Wifes 40th Birthday bash from montana and booked Capt james for one of the last days of our vacation with four others down for a fishing trip from Montana, As a Charter Captain and guide my self I am extremly selective and critical of the Individuals I pay to take me fishing, I did my home work and chose to go out with Catchalottafish charters. And Boy was that a good decision, I was in contact with the captain and he mentioned that we may have to go a little bit further than normal to get into the fish, which translated in to a bit more gas, but also more time on the water, we spent a small amount more and ended up far away from the fleet, deep in the gulfsteam, in huge schools of Dolphin fightin to get on our hooks. All of this the Capt. James communicated with us proffesionally before the Trip. As for The equipment we fished live bait, caught by the captian before the trip, and rigged ballyhoo trolling. Capt. James uses the high end Shimmano Gear and the boat was clean and well rigged for a day of fishing, It even has a potty for the ladies. I would recommend Capt James to anyone thinking about going offshore in the Keys. Great Job!!

We would like to thank Captain James and Travis for the amazing trip offshore! Between the three of us that went fishing we each limited out on dolphin (mahi)! We are taking home around 40 lbs of Mahi! We were extremely please with our trip. Firstly, we stopped to pick up bait which was a neat experience in itself, then went to fish, which we left that decision up to the captain. He does this daily and we knew Captain James knew best. His decision paid off, we didn't have a dull moment the whole 8 hour trip, we caught fish the entire time! The guys were the upmost professionals and you can tell are very passionate about their fishing and their customers! We would without a doubt recommend Catchalottafish Charters to anyone coming to the Keys! Thanks again guys we really appreciated it!
