About the Captain

Member since March 2015
I was born and raised in South Florida, and believe that local knowledge is the key to successful fishing. I love taking anglers out to target the fish they want to catch, and showing them a great day out on the water! I'm not about hours. I fish by the tides, weather, migration and what's biting. I will work passionately to put you on the fish. Do your homework, always choose a licensed, experienced guide.

Captain Jason took us to a ship wreck where we spent 2 hours fishing. We caught mangove (snapper) fishes every few minutes measured them and then put them back if they were small. We also caught three groupers but all of them were too small to keep so we put them back in ocean. Overall we had a lot of fun and we brought home 11 fishes. Captain Jason made filet at the end after we returned to the harbor. We recommend him greatly and wholeheartedly to any one who likes to do fishing in lower keys.

Dear Dr. Naeem & family,

It was such a pleasure to fish you and your beautiful family. Sorry we had to release the gag groupers that were a 1/2 inch short, but we lost a lot of good ones that were keepers. Next time we will slay them. I am glad you got 11 keepers in the 2hour trip and had the experience of seeing them on the boat. Thank you for fishing with us.

We had an amazing trip with Jason. Lots of fish and we even saw Dolphins! We are not experienced at fishing but he made sure we were comfortable and caught fish! Looking forward to making this an annual outing. Thank you for the awesome memories of our honeymoon.
