Had the priviledge of fishing with Capt. Jared twice last week. Took my buddy and his son out all day on a Monday with Jared. Great weather throughout Tampa Bay. Caught a big Black Drum to start along with a few trout and jacks by the big bridge, caught some Sardines for bait on a grass flat, saw a few Bonnethead Sharks, went up thru Tampa Bay City and caught a few Tarpon and a big Jack up river. Had a bumpy ride back to the Safety Harbor area. Overall a great day on the water.
My second opportunity was alone with Jared out of Dunedin Harbor. He put us on the Reds right off the bat using cut bait under some docks. Broke off a good fish then hooked up on a big Red. This guys jumps out of the boat with the pole and chases fish down under the dock so as not to get cut off again. It was a riot and very impressive. I've never had a guide go in after a fish. Made my day. We collected some pin fish for bait out of a few traps we set earlier and headed out towards the gulf after Snook. We finished off the afternoon with 2 Snook, 2 Jacks a nice Trout. Capt. J lost a big Snook which would have topped off the evening. Had a ball.
This kid knows the area, has the knowledge to catch almost anything and best of all, the drive, determination and ability to get it done. I fish a lot and have been with a lot of captains and I can tell you, this Capt. loves what he does and it is very evident the moment you set foot in his boat. I am already making plans to return in the Spring just to fish for big Tarpon with Capt. Jared.
If you want to fish, give him a shout. He returns your calls or texts in a very timely manner and will set you up for a fantastic day. Tight lines everyone.....
