Team Buck Rogers Fishing Charters offer a variety of trips suited for fishermen of any experience level. Captain Chad specializes in offshore fishing, from bottom fishing to trolling. With more than 12 years of experience behind him, he knows exactly where to take you for a good time fishing. Fishing in these parts is great during the entire year, so the best time for a trip is whenever you want it to be.

Waters near Jacksonville offer a variety of places to go fishing, from caves and ledges to artificial reefs such as concrete rubble, culverts, reef balls, and so on. Following from that, the fish species you will encounter are numerous and include Red snapper, Gag Grouper, Black Sea Bass, Vermilion Snapper, Cobia, Tarpon, King Mackerel, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and a variety of sharks as well. Even the Great White is known to be spotted every now and then.

Captain Chad has two center console boats, which as very similar as you will no doubt notice from some of the photos available. You will find they have all the necessary safety and navigation equipment included, as well as a toilet for those longer trips out. The spacious T-Tops will provide plenty of shade for a comfortable journey. A cooler can be provided for any drinks or snacks you might decide to bring in as well.

All the necessary fishing equipment including rods, reels, and tackle is included, as well as the required fishing licenses. Some of the things you might to bring along are sunblock and polarised sunglasses, especially for long trips. Captain Chad will take care of the rest. Come aboard as a client, and leave as a friend!
