Welcome to Catchalottafish Charters | Islamorada, Florida
As a Native of the Florida Keys (which is as rare as a blue diamond these days), Capt. James Chappell has been fishing these beautiful waters in search of big fish and good times since he was born. The effort, energy, and drive that Capt. James puts into each and every charter are sure to make your experience one you will never forget! Capt. James is very patient and courteous with all levels of experience, and will do whatever it takes to ensure that all expectations are exceeded while on YOUR fishing vacation! No matter whether you are after trophy caliber fish, or just out for an action packed adventure with the family, he has you covered! It has always been his dream to pursue the most sought after game fish in the world, and feels blessed to be able to share new experiences each and every day with anglers from all over the world!
Our Mission at Catchalottafish Charters is to do just what the name says, Catch a lot of fish! We always strive to give our customers the best day of fishing they have ever had, with a personal touch that cannot be matched! Capt. James is also very conservation minded, and doesn't have to kill every fish he catches. We practice catch and release after our customers have what they need for either the freezer, or a few nice dinners.
Having been a Bud n' Mary's Marina for nearly the last 7 years, we have decided to move just a mile and a half up the road to the World Wide Sportsman's Marina located on US 1 at MM 81.5 (Bass Pro Shops)! Perfectly located to serve the entire Middle and Upper Keys, to make your fishing vacation as enjoyable as it can be! Also, special arrangements can be made to pick you and your party up directly from your resort, or residence, in which you are staying. Leave the details up to us, and we will make sure your fishing experience will be one to remember! View map.

Captain James writes all of the offshore fishing reports for Florida Sportsman Magazine and online reports covering the Florida Keys area.
Hey everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report! The offshore report has been pretty decent, but the news holds a lot of smaller fish where the Mahi’s are concerned. Plenty of Mahi’s around, but they have been a little tricky as they have been staying deep, then popping up to eat.
Captain James Chappell caught this 800-1000 lb Tiger Shark while filming an Episode of "Monster Fish" on the Outdoor Channel. He has also filmed a few other shows with Florida Sportsman and the Discovery Channel! Keep your eyes open, because you never know where he might show up!
