Jason grew up in Brandon,Florida playing multiple sports in which included fishing. This gave Jason a competitive drive that he now carries into his   Tampa fishing charter business of 15 years. As a young kid Jason used to fish Cockroach Bay out of a  Jon boat putting countless hours in figuring out the patterns and learning spots to be a great fisherman. When Jason was not playing baseball,football, or soccer he was spending time on the water fishing. Little did he know that time on the water would enable him to be one of the premier fishing guides of Tampa Bay.
