ABOUT

Captain Jason Stock has been fishing his entire life, with 15 years full-time professional experience. His greatest accomplishments are placing in the FLW Red Fish tour, winning local kayak tournaments, and bill fishing tournaments throughout Florida. His photo has also been on the cover of many fishing magazines including 2 Florida Sportsman’s, Saltwater Sportsman, Kayak Angler Saltwater Angler, Louisiana Sportsman and Waterline Magazine.

The last few years he has done a variety of different types of fishing including bottom fishing and offshore blue-water trolling from Maine to Key West, then up the west coast of Florida to Louisiana. Jason started working within the family owned local kayak shop (Canoe Country Outfitters) at a young age and found his passion was fishing from a kayak. Over the years he has learned, fished, and traveled with some of the best fisherman and captains around.

For many years, Captain Jason Stock specialized in teaching people to target Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon while using artificial lures fishing out of a kayak. The kayak enables the ability to sneak up on the fish and get into areas where most boats cannot. The kayak also allows you to slow down and appreciate your surroundings, and get away from the stresses of daily life.

Since, due to demand, Captain Jason Stock has focused on charters run from his new 26′ Yellowfin. He offers primarily offshore trips targeting a wide variety of species, including Permit, Snapper, Grouper, Tuna, Redfish, and Kingfish. Captain Jason Stock also offers Bucketlist Charters for those who want to target a species that they have never had the opportunity to catch, such as Tarpon, Goliath Grouper, Hogfish, Tuna, Amberjack, and African Pompano.

Captain Jason Stock’s positive approach and calm demeanor makes him a great guide with a talent for making you comfortable. With a trophy fish on your hook it’s never a dull moment. Whether you’re an experienced angler or new to fishing, Captain Jason Stock can accommodate all skill levels.

“To me there is no greater satisfaction then seeing someone’s reaction after catching a prized fish.” – Captain Jason Stock

I am on the water most days, and often times preparing for charters on the days I am not; because of this I apologize if I do not respond immediately to a call or text, but I will get back with you in a timely manner. If you are interested in booking a charter, please give a call or send a text to my wife Heather at 1 (941) 253-6512, and we will start the process of booking your ideal fishing charter experience.

Great shot of the 26' Yellowfin in action as well pull up some blackfin tunas on an offshore fishing charter.

My primary charter boat is a custom-built 26′ Yellowfin (The Full Send), which is an offshore federally-permitted vessel! This is a great hybrid hull that can handle offshore runs with ease and comfort, or the occasional inshore charter when the weather is too rough to head offshore. With an adaptable layout, the 26′ Yellowfin is ideal for fishing the reefs and trolling for Tuna offshore. And with its dual Yamaha Outboards setup, we can get to the spots quickly and get on the bite.

Much of the year we will be heading offshore from Anna Maria Island, reef fishing for Hogfish, Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Kingfish, Goliath Grouper, Permit, Tuna, and much more! During the summer we often have focused charters, beach fishing and pass fishing around Bradenton for Tarpon and big sharks. On the occasional inshore charter, we will fish the Bay and Flats for skinny water Snook, Redfish and Trout.

Be sure to contact Captain Jason Stock for a variety of different trip options. In Anna Maria Island, we can catch fish every day of the year depending on where and what the weather conditions are!

My secondary charter boat is a 24′ Carolina (The Partial Send). This is a great hull for exploring the bay and inshore flats on days the weather isn’t cooperating for going offshore. It’s wide, open platform gives plenty of room and stability, while being able to get in some fairly skinny water.

Launching from Anna Maria Island, we can fish for a variety of species, including: Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Bonita, Permit, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. We can even offer night time Flounder gigging trips.

Lastly, the 24′ Carolina offers the ability to do kayak Mothershiping trips. This is where we load kayaks into the boat, allowing us to access fishing spots that either vessel on their own couldn’t reach.

Be sure to contact Captain Jason Stock for a variety of different trip options. In Anna Maria Island, we can catch fish every day of the year depending on where and what the weather conditions are!

MARINA

Captain Jason Stock launches from a quiet marina based in Bradenton, conveniently located with easy access to a variety of waterways, such as the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, including the Skyway Bridge. It offers a consistent location for clients to meet and park, plus tables for filleting for trips where catch is brought back, and a great way to wind down after a trip.

If you are visiting the area, the marina is right down the street from Desoto National Memorial Park, and a short drive from Anna Maria Island, with Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach.

26′ Yellowfin Bay Boat Trips :

My primary charter boat is a custom-built 26′ Yellowfin, which is an offshore federally-permitted vessel! This is a great hybrid hull that can handle offshore runs with ease and comfort, or the occasional inshore charter when the weather is too rough to head offshore. With an adaptable layout, the 26′ Yellowfin is ideal for fishing the reefs and trolling for Tuna offshore. And with its dual Yamaha Outboards setup, we can get to the spots quickly and get on the bite.

When booking a charter, be sure to let us know if there are any species in particular you would like to catch. We will help determine the best times of year and type of charter would be appropriate for pursuing that target species. This will also help Captain Jason Stock to better prepare on the day of the charter.

Booking a charter with Captain Jason Stock is booking an adventure, a hunt on the water guided by his 15-years full-time professional experience of getting you on the hottest bite of that season, using first-class gear such as St. Croix rods with Shimano reels. While not every charter may be a complete success, Captain Jason Stock will be sure to provide a memorable day on the water, and do his best to get you on the bite. Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more on how to prepare/what to expect from a charter.

Let me know what species you would like to target, and we’ll plan the day.*

This type of charter can be a memorable, unique team-building experience for company trips out of the office, and business retreats.

24′ Carolina Inshore Boat Trips :

My secondary charter boat is a 24′ Carolina (The Partial Send). This is a great hull for exploring the bay and inshore flats on days the weather isn’t cooperating for going offshore, or acting as a utility vessel for any number of types of charters, including those not focused on fishing. It’s wide, open platform gives plenty of room and stability, while being able to get in some fairly skinny water.

Launching from Anna Maria Island, we can fish for a variety of species, including: Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Bonita, Permit, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. We can even offer night time Flounder gigging trips and bow fishing trips. Lastly, the 24′ Carolina offers the ability to do kayak Mothershiping trips. This is where we load kayaks into the boat, allowing us to access fishing spots that either vessel on their own couldn’t reach.

When booking a charter, be sure to let us know if there are any species in particular you would like to catch. We will help determine the best times of year and type of charter would be appropriate for pursuing that target species.

The Partial Send can also be chartered for a variety of non-fishing trips. Some of these include: Egmont Key tours, snorkeling around the submerged fort at Egmont, aquarium fishing hunting excursions, shelling tours, dolphin tours, sunset tours, or driving to local sandbars and restaurants. Let us know how you would like to spend a half or full day on the water.

Captain Jason Stock will often be running the Partial Send on days that the weather isn’t cooperating to go offshore in the Full Send, or when on trips that play to the skiff’s strengths.

Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more on how to prepare/what to expect from a charter.

 

**Note that for the fairness of all parties involved, we require a deposit of one third down when booking any charter. The latest a client can cancel a trip is 7 days in advance.  Any cancellations within 72 hours of a booked trip are at the sole discretion of Captain Jason Stock.

It can be a tour of Egmont Key, snorkeling around the submerged fort there, an excursion searching for aquarium fish, dolphin tours, sunset tours, shelling, driving out to a sandbar or restaurant, night time fishing or gigging, and even bow fishing trips. Learn more about these types of trips on the Partial Send’s Vessel page.

Essentially a custom for hire boat, let us know how you would like to spend either a half or full day, and we’ll let you know if the Partial Send can accomodate it.

Depending on the time of year, we can target some popular species such as: Snook, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Bonitas, and much more!

Kayak and Kayak ‘Mothership’ Trips :

Back by popular demand…kayaks! We will now be offering standard kayak trips and “mothership” trips. You can use your own kayak if you own one, but I also have a small fleet of Bonafide RS117s for use on charters. These kayaks offer generous stability, comfortable seating, and the ability to stand on the water, perfect for site-casting on the flats.

Kayaking strictly from a kayak can offer the ability to reach secluded spots, particularly on days the wind is really blowing. Kayak ‘Mothershiping’ allows us to load those kayaks on a boat to cover significantly more ground than we could strictly paddling.

When booking a charter, be sure to let us know if there are any species in particular you would like to catch. We will help determine the best times of year and type of charter would be appropriate for pursuing that target species.

While Captain Jason’s first priority will always be offshore, he can now offer kayak trips on days when the weather doesn’t allow for running offshore.

Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more on how to prepare/what to expect from a charter.

 

**Note that for the fairness of all parties involved, we require a deposit of one third down when booking any charter. The latest a client can cancel a trip is 7 days in advance.  Any cancellations within 72 hours of a booked trip are at the sole discretion of Captain Jason Stock.

Kayak Fishing Trip :

These trips are for anglers who wish to fish strictly from the kayak. Offering the ability to get to spots that no motor propelled boat can reach, targeting such often sought after species as Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Snook.

Kayak Pricing :
1 Person : $400
2 People : $500
3 People : $600

Kayak “Mothership” Trip :

By loading the kayaks onto a boat, we can access more spots, and spots that we wouldn’t be able to paddling a kayak. These trips can lead to landing some great Redfish, Snook, Trout, and Flounder, among other species.

1 Person : $600
2 People : $700
3 People : $800

With Captain Jason Stock, you can book Offshore, Nearshore, Inshore, and, back by popular demand, Kayak fishing trips.

Some of many species caught on charters include: Permit, Tarpon, Hogfish, Goliaths, Redfish, Grouper, Amberjack, Kingfish, Snapper, Snook, Tripletail, Sharks, Cobia, and Tuna. For the most immersive trips, or for days you want to target a multitude of species, we suggest booking a full day.

Some additional points which make Captain Jason Stock a great option for your guide needs:

– Trips are a hassle-free experience. With the booking of your charter, all fishing licenses, gear, tackle, ice, and filleting will be covered through the course of the trip. The only thing you need worry about is bringing food/drinks of your choice for the day.

– Captain Jason Stock has a Federal Reef Permit, allowing for trips past 9 miles, expanding options and allowing for some great fishing spots.

– Fishing can be a sustainable activity with the right attentions. Much of the fishing done on trips is catch and release, in line with the limits for the time of year. In addition, Captain Jason Stock participates in a few programs helping to collect data and research Florida’s fisheries, such as tagging every Grouper and Permit released, and collecting DNA on every Goliath before release.

– Captain Jason Stock specializes in something called a “Bucket List Trip.” This is for anglers who want to catch a particular species which has alluded them, or they have not had the vessel to access yet.
