Member since February 2021
Captain Jason was born and raised in a military family. When they moved to the Florida Panhandle in 1993, he met some friends who were into fishing and from then he was hooked! The captain's been an avid fisherman since and he purchased his first boat in 2015. From there he has mainly fished the Gulf to this day. Captain Jason loves taking people out to fish and enjoys friends and family catching more than himself. At that point, he decided to go to Sea School and get his captain's license. Now, he's here doing what he's always wanted to do and that's fish for a living.
