Captain Jason Stock has been fishing his entire life, with over 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.
