I started fishing the Gulf as a kid, and turned my passion into a job that I love. I have now been in this business for fifteen years, and take great pride in providing once-in-a-lifetime fishing experiences for all of my customers. I really enjoy teaching young anglers and watching kids have a great time catching fish.

Jason was a great captain showing us were the fish were and being sure we knew how to land the fish. We filled up the fridge with filets for the week.

The captin and crew were not prepared for the morning trip out, no bait no ice…  The trip was to leave the dock by 6:00am. We departed 6:30. Drove around over an hour looking for bait. Rip off!! short trip to the north jetties. Arriving around 8:30 and leaving at 11:00 am. $550 dollars trip 100.dollar tip. Five small trout. Never again.

We can’t control bait shops running out of shrimp with 5ft seas the shrimpers don’t go out. We try our hardest to be prepared customers have no idea what goes on behind the scene we were at doc at 5 am looking for bait making calls and searching our only choice was to hunt down a dragging shrimp boat as did 5 other charter captains. We also can’t control weather and high seas which make fishing very tough. I’m sorry you had a bad trip due to no bait on the whole island and high seas.

This seriously was the best family vacation. Captain Jason is a wonderful captain and great guy! We caught fish and sharks. Saw the beautiful sunrise and dolphins playing. My family was blessed to have such a great captain that helped us make many memories for our time together. We will be coming back!
