Key West, FL is home to some of the world’s most famous fishing grounds – what better way to discover them than alongside a captain who grew up exploring these waters? Captain Joe Mercurio comes from a long line of Floridian fishermen, and can’t wait to pass on the knowledge he’s inherited. Come aboard Jolly Roger II and get ready to discover plenty of local tips and tricks – you’ll be fishing like a native Floridian in no time!

Capt. Joe has been fishing these waters for over 37 years. He bought the “Jolly Roger II” boat from his father, and his grandfather owned one of the first charters boats in Key West in the 40s – it’s safe to say that a passion for angling is a true family tradition for him! He uses his wealth of knowledge to provide a variety of angling adventures that are suitable for guests of all ages and skill levels, all on board a luxurious fishing machine.

The vessel in question is an impressive 39’ Chu Chu sportfishing vessel, able to accommodate up to 6 anglers. She’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for a fun family getaway, or want to tangle lines with some of your best angling buddies. On board, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational and safety gear, as well as a full toilet. There are 5 fishing chairs on the back deck, a fighting chair for battling big game, and outriggers to cover plenty of ground when trolling.

Speaking of trolling, your captain specializes in putting guests on fish by using his “reef to bluewater” trolling method. This means that you’ll be exploring fishing grounds around the local reefs, as well as up to 25 miles offshore. You’ll have the chance to hook Mahi Mahi, a variety of Marlin, Barracuda, Wahoo, Tuna, and more. Don’t worry if you’ve never fished before – your captain and first mate will be on hand to show you the ropes.

Your trip includes rods, reels, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. Your captain will fillet your catch, too. Come aboard Jolly Roger II and learn how to fish like a true Floridian!

Capt. Joe has been fishing for the past 37 years, and has been a licensed captain for 27 of then. He was born and raised in Key West, so it's safe to say he knows these waters like the back of his hand. When it comes to the boat you'll be fishing from, it's pretty much a piece of Key West history – Capt. Joe's father owned the boat before him. This family's tradition of fishing doesn't stop there, though. Capt. Joe's grandfather had one of the first charterboats in Key West in the late 40's. Come aboard and make yourself a part of Floridian fishing history!
