About the Captain

Jason Semeyn
Placida, Florida, United States
Member since May 2015
Captain Jason was raised on the water in South Tampa and has fished the inshore waters of Southwest Florida for over 30 years. He became so obsessed with fish and their habits and feeding patterns, that it led to him working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as a Law Enforcement Officer who regulates the fishing resource for the state of Florida.

We had a great time Captain Jason is very knowledgeable of the area and where the fish are. Unfortunately the week leading up to the trip was very windy and the sea bottom was cloudy and a little murky. Thats not his fault as he has no control of the weather. He tried very hard to put us on the fish. I did catch one small flounder under the size limit.  He gave us some great tips and instruction when needed. I will definitely book another charter with Capt. Jason and shallow water escape in future, and I highly recommend him to anyone that wants a fun day out on the water.
