In his own words

Simple man who loves God, Family, Country, hunting, and fishing.  What you see is what you get. I enjoy the competition that comes along with tournament fishing at every level.  The challenges that Mother Nature puts forth.  No two days are the same, just like life.  Everything depends on the adjustments you make in order to achieve success.  Keep a positive mindset and make things happen when it’s not going your way.  Apex has brought a new look to West coast fishing like we’ve never seen before.  It’s exciting and refreshing!  I’m honored and proud to be a part of it.  I want to do my part to help build the Apex brand for the future generations, so they too will have the ability to fish against the best anglers on the West coast. I look forward to hoisting up one of them beautiful trophies!!

Behind the Angler

Started fishing with my Dad about the time I was big enough to hold a rod. Tournament fishing began in high school and after a few years in the Marines it picked right back up.  I have fished at every level and still to this day, I just love catching fish.

In the Boat

A flippin’stick, football head jig rod and a frog are staples in Jason’s boat. He prefers to tie on Spro frogs and Big Bite Baits or Yamamoto plastics. He always has spools of P-Line on board as well. A peek underneath the compartment lids may also reveal a truck or tractor that his grandsons left behind.
