About Your Guide

Captain Jason was born on the intercoastal waterways of Clearwater, FL. As a true Florida native, he discovered his love for fishing in his adolescence, fishing often with his father on Caladesi Island, Phillipe Park, and the Sunshine Skyway bridge. At 18 years old he started his fishing career as a deckhand on one of the head bolts in the Clearwater Beach Municipal Marina. Since then he has clocked thousands of hours offshore and inshore. Jason is also known for much more than just his fishing skills. He is a master fishing rod builder, reel repair specialist, BBQ king, and makes an award-winning fish spread!

Neptune Fishing Charters Trips

This trip is for experienced anglers who want to master inshore fishing techniques and have a shot at the famous "inshore slam" (snook, redfish, trout) or to fill the cooler with fish to eat. Target Redfish, Snook, Trout, Grunts, Mackerel, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Grouper. Captain Jason spends all his free time on the water learning fish habits and movements so you can go straight to the fish on the day of your trip. If you have a goal in mind for the day, Captain Jason is more than happy to try and chase down your next trophy, but he is also privy to which species are bitting best, and can help set expectations for you at the dock by providing expert advice on what tactics and species will be best to target that day. You'll be fishing from Captain Jason's 22' Pathfinder powered by a 200HP Yamaha ProV. With the ability to glide through 12 inches of shallow water or head 9 miles offshore, the world is your oyster when you head out, as Captain Jason is able to target fish far off the beaten path. It comfortably fits 4 passengers plus the captain. Its most notable feature is the 10 foot custom scouting tower, which gives Captain Jason the advantage to scout fish from over 40 feet away! This fishing machine comes rigged with a 9" Garmin navigation system, 24V Minnkota iPilot trolling motor, and 2 live wells. And there is dry space to store your personal belongings and a cooler on board to keep your food and drinks cold for the day! All of Captain Jason's trips depart from Wet Lines Bait & Tackle on Seminole Street in Clearwater. You will meet him there where he'll have the boat in the water, loaded with all necessary bait, tackle, and fishing licenses for an epic day of fishing. He will have a cooler filled with ice to keep all of your food and drinks cold. If you plan on keeping your catch, the captain will fillet and bag it for you as well. Captain Jason recommends you bring any food and drink (especially water!) you would like to enjoy on your fishing adventure. Bring what you need to be comfortable outdoors for the length of your trip. Basic items to consider bringing based upon season and weather are sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, rain jacket, windbreaker, sweatshirt, etc. Captain Jason will also be in touch with you the day before your charter to make sure you are properly prepared for your saltwater adventure!

Captain Kat was awesome! She knew where all the hot spots were for the target species we were after and we caught a pile of keepers! She was excellent with my teenage boys and earned our highest recommendation! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My daughter and I had a great trip with Captain Jason. He worked hard to keep us in the fish for our entire trip. Once we hit a hot spot and he stayed out later for us to put a few more in the cooler. I would definitely recommend him and will be back on our next trip to Florida.

Jason was great! Super knowledgeable and helpful. He was very patient with me as a new fisher and made the effort to make sure we were able to catch fish! He took the time to clean our fish and even made recommendations on where to take fish to get it cooked! 1000/10 recommend a trip with Jason! Will definitely be back

Was a great experience! Captain Jason was attentive to making sure I’d fish weren’t biting he would move around. He was always making sure our casts were in an ideal for catching fish and he made sure we always had bait on. It was a bit of a windy day and a small craft advisory so he kept us safe an more inland. Appreciated his mindfulness and safety. Would definitely book with Jason again and book a longer trip!!!

Jason was very informative with where to meet and what to expect with parking. He was on time and ready with gear and bait. Jason asked and listened to what we wanted so he could prioritize fishing spots! I would recommend a 4 hour trip. It took about 30 min to drive to a good spot and we got a good hour in. We fished for a good hour and caught 10 fish. When we returned to the dock, we took a bathroom break and by the time we were done, Jason was already halfway through cleaning our fish. He even provided a ziploc bag and ice for us when we departed. Jason recommended some lunch spots and he was 100% spot on with his recommendation. We loved it and will be booking with him again.

Couldn’t have imagined a better fishing trip with the family! Captain Jason had up on the fish within seconds of starting. Non stop action for 4 hours catching a wide variety of fish. Dolphins even kept us company boat side. Definitely a trip family will always remember. Captain Jason is very knowledgeable and helpful. After he cleaned everything we took them over to Salt Cracker Fish Camp for some fish tacos. Blackened and fried - amazing. Great job Captain, can’t wait to visit again!

Three of us from Minnesota finally took the chance to spend a few hours fishing the ocean for salt water fish. I’ve never been out that far or long on the water but Jason made me feel so safe and comfortable. From the beginning he asked what we were looking to catch, and what kind of trip we wanted. He told us after he baited our hooks that we shouldn’t be waiting more than a minute for a bite, and he was right. We started catching some pretty awesome fish. And after taking each of them off the hook, he would tell us about the fish. We caught grunt fish, Spanish Mackerel, grouper, mangrove snapper, seabass, spot tail….it was absolutely awesome. Then he fileted all of the fish we could keep, and recommended the best place to have them cook them up. We had a blast, so cool. Such an experience, and would send everyone his way. We will definitely go back out with him the next time we are back down here.
