Captain Jason Burton takes great pride in his charters being family-oriented and providing his customers with fun fishing trips for all ages and skill levels.

His boat is a 25’ Sea Hunt center console that can cater to up to 6 anglers. Fully overhauled in 2018, it features the latest and the best in marine electronics and safety gear, a 300 HP Yamaha engine, a restroom, a live bait tank, an ice-box, and even a sound system.

When fishing inshore, your weapon of choice will be light tackle, while heavier gear is reserved for offshore fishing.
