Tortugas fishing with Andy Griffiths Charters - Marquesas overnight fishing
excursions in the Florida Keys
Captain James Rogers hails from Pompano Beach Florida. His very first job was fishing on a boat. He got his captain's license immediately after turning the legal age of 18 and at that point had more experience than most fishermen three times his age. His hobbies include fishing, fishing and fishing. He even fishes on his days off! Customers willI tell you it makes a difference having a captain who loves to fish and doesn't just see it as a job. In addition to charming all the single ladies in Key West Florida Captain James likes to run his crab traps for personal consumption. He moved to Key West to run overnight charters and catch more fish. In his last position he ran a party boat out of Pompano Beach. He loves running private charters with six anglers where he gets to know his customers and he likes the more fertile fishing grounds where it takes more than one day to fish. James is 25 years old and has a very loyal following.
Wanted to let you know of the great time we had on our trip with Capt. James!!! Although due to cold and flu season keeping two of our intended five anglers from making the trip we decided to make the trip with just three anglers.....it made the trip a little pricey...but I was taking my father as an early Christmas gift so we went forward with our plans to fish Monday December 3rd thru Wednesday December 5th! I can't say enough about Capt. James he was AWESOME!!!! We caught plenty of fish and had a few once in lifetime experiences!!! Including catching and releasing a 350-400lb Goliath Grouper on 25lb test.....hooking a Manta Ray with a 5-6ft wing span in the middle of the night that almost flew into the boat on it's first jump....and catching a 7-8lb Schoolmaster Snapper(I have since learned the World Record in less than 5lbs!!). We are already looking for dates to make our next trip with Capt. James! Thanks again to you and your staff and many thanks to Capt. James for a tremendous experience!!!! Sincerely, Joe Fulner III
We had a great time last weekend in spite of the nasty rough crossing at the end. James was great. I'm writing to ask you to remind him to email the pictures he took.

Everything was great ! The only negative was how quickly the time flew by.
Thanks and kindest Regards,
Captain James is great. He's a hard worker who constantly searched to put us on fish. He is not just a captain, he is a fisherman who is willing to share his wealth of knowledge to insure us a bountiful trip.
Thanks Capt. James!

Captain Eddie Griffiths
Capt Eddie Griffiths has taken over the family business of 50 years and has taken it to a whole new level with his state-of-the-art first class charter boat with all the comforts of home. Along with only the best Garmin products, such as his dual 7212 chart plotters, radar, auto pilot and chip technology fathometer, to find the fish fast. The Capt.
