Captain Jason was born and raised in a military family. When they moved to the Florida Panhandle in 1993, he met some friends who were into fishing and from then he was hooked! The captain's been an avid fisherman since and he purchased his first boat in 2010. From there he has mainly fished the Gulf to this day. Captain Jason loves taking people out to fish and enjoys friends and family catching more than himself. At that point, he decided to go to Sea School and get his captain's license. Now, he's here doing what he's always wanted to do and that's fish for a living.

Captain Jason was such a pleasure to be around and very knowledgeable about the fish we were looking for. He made sure we had the best experience possible!

We went out with my family of 5 and had a great time! Jason and his deckhand were very kind and put us on fish. My kids had a blast and we will definitely be booking with him again!

Slow but fun. Fish wasn’t very active but trip was fun! Talking electronics and fishing and running the waves! Good time!

Joe C.


Had a great day with captain Jason. We were on the fish the entire trip. We had the opportunity to limit out, but we wanted to target other species and we were able to hook up on those as well. Finished the day with 8’ shark.

What a great guy, he was on point and his boat got us on the fish. 7 years going out of Cape Hatteras and we will be back here

First time as family for offshore fishing. Highly recommend Captain “J” Jason . His #1 priority was to make sure we enjoy our experience. He definitely makes every effort to get to know our comfort level. Everything was perfect!

Highly recommend Captain Jason !!! My family and I went on a half day trip and had a blast. Captain Jason was awesome and did his best to get us on the fish. We caught several different kinds of fish, big and small, which made the trip well worth it. Not all were target fish so we released them, but that is why it is called fishing. We will definitely be planning another fishing trip with Captain Jason on our next visit!!!

Trip was well worth it. Captain Jason and his son were great. We started off trolling and the three kids got to haul in a tuna then we went and started everyone fishing with poles. He got us right on them and we were nailing them like crazy. Captain Jason and his son were working like crazy for us. Overall experience was great. The kids loved it! We caught a couple red snapper we had to put back because not in season. Also caught some trigger fish but not big enough to keep. Captain knew everything about all the fish. The 5 hour trip was perfect for us. Weather was awesome. Definitely recommend him if you are thinking of going on a charter. Everything was included. They cleaned the fish very quick too!!

Had a great time with Captain Jay. The weather didn’t cooperate with us to go offshore so we decided to stay in the bay. Captain Jay knew right where to go and put us on the Spanish Mackerel! If your looking for someone that is knowledgeable and will put you on fish, then I highly recommend Captain Jay!

It was an absolute blast being on board with capt. Jason and his first mate. We caught a ton of fish and they knew where to find them. The first spot we went to was loaded and we caught our limit of mingos, some triggerfish, and some monster snapper but they are out of season so we let them back, and some big grouper were hanging around too. The wind picked up at the very end of the trip so we trolled back into the bay with a couple big hits but no luck (that’s just fishing). I would highly recommend for beginners and veteran anglers because these guys knew it all! Cant thank them enough for an amazing day on the water truly doesn’t get any better!
