He loves to meet new people and he will eagerly answer any questions you may have on all your trips with him. 

 

Our fishing charters set sail out of Gulf Breeze, Florida. Captain Jason will work very hard to put you where the bite is hot. We may end up exploring the nearby fishing grounds of Pensacola, Perdido Key, Oriole Beach, Navarre, Pensacola Beach, and many other wonderful locations along Florida’s Emerald Coast.

One of our most popular trips. Just long enough to get out there and chase the big fish but short enough to be back by lunch! Great trip for larger crews or families with that young but eager angler!

      It was a very good trip and we would recommend him to our friends. We have all agreed that we would go on another trip with him. However, there were two issues. 1. Communications. I was not able to talk with him until late the day before the trip. It made me nervous about the trip. 2. The trip he had the day before caused him to be behind and he wasn't as prepared as he should have been for our trip. Rigs weren't setup so there was a delay in several of us getting started. Backup rigs were not ready to go in the event something happened.

    • Highly Recommend

      Created Erica Barney

      Jason was very clever with his techniques on how to catch snapper and other fish as well! He knew exactly where to take us for us to catch fish. We actually got a fish within the first 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

    • Had an Awesome Trip

      Created Mackenzie Simons

      Had an awesome trip with Jason!! He knew right where to go to catch the fish! Even 2 sharks! Will definitely be back and know he will take care of us!

    • Definitely Recommend

      Created Wesley Spivey

      I had the pleasure with fishing with Capt.Jason he put us on the fish within minutes. Very knowledgeable Capt. Definitely recommend booking a trip with him to catch the fish of a lifetime!

    • Great Fishing Knowledge

      Created Steven Humphreys

      We went out today for some snapper, and Jason got us on the reds immediately. Within literally 15 minutes, we had 4 nice (10 pound plus) fish in the cooler before heading further out. He put us on a great spot with some HUGE reds and mangrove snapper, largest red was almost 19 pounds and 3 of the mangroves were in between 8 and 9 pounds! And we got a Mahi-Mahi while out there to top it all off. If im ever in need of another charter trip, bet your ass its gonna be with captain Jason. Overall, just a phenomenal trip on a comfortable boat. Cant beat it. Thank you.

    • Great Charter!

      Created Donny Miley

      I've fished all over the country with some of the best guides in the business. I'm getting ready to book my third trip this year with captain Jason Downs. He has consistently produced fish while other guides have struggled. He's great with beginners and can definitely show the experienced angler a thing or two. I can't say enough good things about him and Bite Back Charters! He truly is the best of the best!

    • Friendly Guide

      Created John Miller

      Tough day and rough seas today but Jason made sure my kids had a great time. You can tell he truely loves fishing. Great boat, comfortable ride. Would not hesitate to book another trip. And the 7.5 lb trigger was a nice kicker.

    • Loved my trip

      Created Matt Wegener

      I've never been on a smoother - riding boat or fished with a captain that has more knowledge on how to catch a wide variety of species. It's a no-brainer, book him today for your next trip!

    • Had a blast!

      Created Matt Fant

      Jason put my friends and I on the fish. We all had a blast and put some fish on ice. My only regret is not going twice during my vacation. Thanks again Jason.
