The Jolly Roger II is captained by Joe Mercurio III. He is a third generation Key West fishing charter boat captain whose Grandfather had one of the first charterboats in Key West in the late 40's. Joe III's Father was his teacher and still fishes his own boat here in Key West, In fact, there is always competition going on between Father and Son...all in fun, of course. Many of his customers have won awards in the Lower Keys Fishing Tournament. The Captain himself has won several awards, including most marlin and sailfish. This year (2001), he won the Guide Achievement Award.
