Welcome to Captain Jason Thompson's On the Bay Fishing Charters

Are you ready for a fishing trip you'll never forget?

On The Bay Fishing Charters offers a great experience perfect for families, friends, even co-workers and fellow business owners! Tampa, Florida is well known for their beautiful beaches and amazing gulf shores. For many locals, fishing is a natural way of life. If you’re from out of town, or are a local who doesn’t get much time for fishing, come experience a day on the bay, guided by one of Tampa Bays most well-known & experienced local fishing guides, Captain Jason Thompson.

Once aboard, Captain Jason will guide you throughout Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and/or Anna Maria in search of your choice of catching Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Trout, Cobia, Grouper and many other species. Captain Jason will take you into the bay, on top of popular grass flats, and deep into the back-waters of Tampa Bay, Florida where your catch of a life time may be waiting.

No matter your prior fishing knowledge or skill, or whether you’re a local resident or just visiting the Tampa Bay area, no experience is needed to enjoy your self out On the Bay with Captain Jason. We take care of everything from supplies to instruction!

Let’s create some memories On the Bay!
