About Our Captain
Captain Jason Thompson, (Also know as Capt. JT ) is a fourth generation Floridian who has grown up around and on the water his entire life. Fishing all over Florida’s diverse waters, Capt. Jason has always believed in respecting the water along with the aquatic life that lives in it so future generations can enjoy it to. Over the years the Capt. JT himself has fished in numerous tournaments, including placing in the yearly Flat Masters Series Redfish tournament. Captain Jason has also taken part in several fishing charity events throughout the years to support the community.
Driven by his pure love for the water, Jason Thompson founded “On The Bay Charters” in order to share his passion of fishing with new and experienced anglers from all over the world. Captain Jason earned his Captains license in 2007 and decided to chase his dreams and began full-time guiding.
Captain Jason’s passion for being on the water is so intense that he even rebuilt and restored two classic 1972 Aquasport 222 himself from the ground up. His most recent restoration of a Aquasport 222 is his current guiding machine that can take you into the deep waters for grouper or inshore and into the back-country waters for big snook and strong redfish. Combined with the Aquasport hull, It is powered by a Mercury Verado and some of the best electronics on the market.
