Capt. Jason Sullivan fishes out of Flamingo, the southernmost boat ramp on Florida’s mainland located in Everglades National Park. From there Florida Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, and the backcountry bays of the Everglades await.
It’d be safe to call Capt. Jason a “glades poon specialist”. He’s obsessed with the tarpon that inhabit and move through the Everglades. Dialed in is an understatement, if there’s tarpon around of any size Jason’s on them. He enjoys putting a beginner on their first tarpon just as much as he enjoys lining up an experienced tarpon junkie.
Aside from tarpon, Capt. Jason loves hunting down snook and redfish along the beaches and flats. And with the truly adventurous angler’s request, or if conditions dictate, Capt. Jason will leave the Hell’s Bay skiff at home and break out the jonboat to push you back into remote creeks and bays of the Everglades that are rarely visited by other humans in search of tarpon, snook and redfish.
