Offshore-Team Buck Rogers Charters
Voted Northeast Florida's BEST Fishing Charter by Jax Best 2019,2020, 2021
I always get asked, “Where did the business name come from?” Well “Buck” is my late grandfather, and “Roger” is my daddy. Both of these men taught me the love of fishing so they will be with me always! From the name, this business is built on family. I was born and raised in North Florida and have fished the Jacksonville waters since I was a child. A little about me: I’ve spent over 24 years as a local law enforcement officer. I recently retired as a Lieutenant with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office; I know first hand the demand on our First Responders and Military members which is why I offer a First Responder/Military Discount for my brothers and sisters in uniform!! We also offer discounts for teachers and medical staff. I have owned and operated Team Buck Rogers Fishing Charters since 2006. Thanks to the huge TBR customer base, I added another boat to the fleet in 2017 (DROP PLAN), and another boat in June 2019 (BILL COLLECTOR), and yet another boat in April 2021 (BLOOD LINE) to meet customer demand (Thank You!). I have several great Captain’s, a few of which are also first responders, who are professional and very child friendly. We will take great care of you and do our best to show you a memorable day on the water. We are very family friendly, and welcome anglers of all skill levels, to include children of all ages, to enjoy a day on the water. Give me a call and let’s get you in one of our boats. 904-362-0609 Come as a client and leave as a friend!
