Captain
Jason Hayes

Member since April 2016 Orleans, United States
Background
With over 30 yrs of experience sport fishing, from private sportfish yachts to charter operations all over the country. From Inshore fisheries to offshore blue water fisheries, I’ve learned to offer the best possible charter I can. I enjoy the smiles and memories catching fish gives people. I have a passion for teaching the generations to come how to be a skilled angler and take pride in my ability to work with people on all levels. A coast guard licensed captain, I operate the Roxy in the summer months and tug boats in the colder months.
Techniques
My approach to fishing is unmatched by your average charter Captain, from jigging for mackerel, to live baiting for giant Bluefin tuna I won’t stop my hunt till we can’t reel anymore. How we fish depends on the day and targeted species, therefore most of the bass fishing we do takes place on a shoal area so we usually use wire line and jigs. This is a very productive method but a little work, that reaps great rewards! When the opportunity comes to use light tackle we take full advantage of it. Casting poppers or live bait it’s always a thrill to hookup on a lightweight spinning rod. When it comes to the intense fight a giant bluefin tuna gives, we use penn international 130’s on custom rods. Nothing beats the heart pounding fight they give. Truly a chance of a lifetime that you’ll never forget!
