Capt. Jason Hayes grew up fishing the waters around the New Smyrna, Ormond/Daytona Area and fishing has been a way of life his entire life. Whether fishing the many opportunities that this area of Florida has to offer or traveling around the rest of Florida and the Bahamas to sample other prospects, Capt. Jay has obtained a vast knowledge of numerous fish species and various fishing applications. His grandfather was a major influence on him. Growing up, there was seldom a free weekend that didn't get booked up with a fishing trip. Likewise, all vacations centered around fishing. Through countless hours on the water, Jason has developed the natural instincts that are necessary to be a successful fishing charter captain. Captain Jay knew his true calling was always to be captain of a fishing charter vessel. He received his charter captains license and began taking charters.
