Meet Captain Jason – Tampa Bay Fishing Guide

Captain Jason Prieto is a Tampa Bay native and still resides in the area. He has spent his entire life
in Tampa fishing the surrounding areas. In 2004 he decided to take his love for Tampa
fishing and make it a job and share his passion with others and become a Tampa fishing guide.
This was the beginning of Steady Action Fishing Charters INC where he runs his Tampa fishing

In addition to being a being a full time Tampa Bay fishing guide for 15 years, he also wrote
monthly reports for Gaff Magazine, the Tampa Tribune, Tampa Times, Parrish News, and
Saltwater Angler. Captain Jason has also had the pleasure of guiding guys like Frank Sageant, Bill Miller
and the Reel Animals on featured TV shows and newspaper articles.

In 2006, he enjoyed Tampa fishing and teaching so much he took his knowledge to the airwaves as he was Co Host
to Outdoor fishing Adventures that aired weekly on 1040 ESPN. As times changed Captain
Jason and his partners decided to take the radio program to social media. He continued the
show on Facebook and YouTube to give the audience a better platform to learn. This show still
runs weekly today every Monday evening on Facebook and YouTube at 7 to 8pm.

Tournament fishing was something Captain Jason also wanted to do as he got older. Being a full time
Tampa fishing guide enabled him to pursue his dream to fish amongst the best anglers in the
nation. Captain Jason has been on top of the fishing tournament circuit with some of the best names in
the industry. Some of his top finishes have been 1st place IFA Redfish Clearwater and 2016
Team of The Year IFA followed by a bunch of top 10 and top 20 finishes. He and his partner
Brian Visnovec have also been ranked #16 out of the top 48 teams in the nation and qualified to
fish the Redfish World Series 2019. Captain Jason says one of the keys to his success in tournaments is
a longtime friend and tournament partner Brian Visovec. Brian works very hard to find fish and
puts in long hours and extra days pre-fishing. Brian and Jason’s dedication and commitment
over the past 5 years has put them on top of the leader boards and they seem to get better
every year. Captain Jason also feels strong about the long-standing friendship and says this is a critical
part of their success. Good partners for tournament fishing a key component to being
competitive in any tournament circuits.

for companies that sponsor him to chase his dream. He would like to thank the following:
Rhodan Marine, Bluewater Gear, Power Poles Shallow Water Anchor, Pathfinder Boats,
