Captain Jarrod knows the waters like the back of his hand. He had his first mate Jack (his dog) on board as well. I was the first one to catch a fish! A 28 inch Snook! Was a great and fun trip! Will definitely be booking again!

Hands down best charter service in Tampa Bay! The Captain was on it and I have been on his boat for both Fishing and beach day charters, both were an amazing time!

I've been out with Jarrod several times. The most memorable was when we took our dad out for Father's day. Seeing the joy on my dad's face catching fish with his sons was priceless. Thanks Jarrod for being the greatest captain ever.
