With over 15 years of fishing experience, over 200k followers across social media platforms, and thousands of days spent on the water, Capt. JC ensures that you will have an exciting day of fishing.

With an 8" draft, his 18’ Sterling skiff allows you to explore untouchable areas of shallow water to catch a variety of species in Pasco County. This charter departs from a small marina just north of Tampa Bay, in a city called New Port Richey. Renowned for its stunning coastline, abundant marine life, and fantastic inshore fishing opportunities, Pasco County is a true angler’s paradise.

Kids are absolutely welcome! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Also, remember to bring snacks – luckily, Capt. Jason will have some on board!

This charter covers your fishing licenses, just show up ready for a good time! Keep in mind that you may release some fish due to regulations and recent red tide which has depleted numbers of certain species in the area.

For example, Redfish, Snook, and Trout will not be kept and there is a 5 Fish Limit for the boat. Luckily, there are plenty of other species to keep, like Sheepshead, Snapper, Flounder, Mackerel, and more! Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish.

He can take up to 3 guests as long as at least one is a child. Please reach out to him if any accommodations are needed. If there’s more you’d like to know about fishing with Capt. JC, you can message him below for more information!

    If fishing from the white sugar sand beach with only a rod and burning desire to land a Snook of lifetime is your goal, you’ve come to the right spot. Knowing the contour of the sand on the beach is key, that’s why I’m here. Snook will not be kept since they are breeding. This is a 2 guest per charter max!

I've been fishing for over 15 years and have created a large following on social media through YouTube videos. However, I decided that I would rather meet and take people fishing, compared to just post fishing content. I definitely made the right decision, as I have enjoyed seeing the excitement and smiles that fishing brings to people's faces.
