Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
I’d give him a 100 stars if I could! He was fabulous! My husband and I are retired charter captains and we know the business well. Jason was great. We fished hard, he knew the area well and provided assistance when needed. We will definitely be chartering with him again. We highly recommend him to experienced and novice fishermen. He knew the right baits, had several rods rigged for different fish and different presentations for fishing. Could not ask for more!
