Rodney McCoy–I took a fishing trip with Jason from Rod Bending Charters and it was the best trout and mackerel trip I’ve ever been on. Jason put us right on the fish and within seconds we were pulling the specs in the boat. Not just any old specs. He put us on some big ole hogs. We caught our limit within an hour or so. It was like Bam!!! Bam!!! Bam!!! Almost every cast produced a keeper Spec, Spanish Mackerel or Black Drum. It was awesome!!! Jason sure knows what fishing is all about and is an awesome guide. I’ve taken lots of fishing charters and Jason has been the best by far. He is on top of his game when it comes to catching the big boys. He will get my business for many more years to come. As a matter of fact, I have already booked another trip with him tomorrow. He won’t let you down. If the fish are there, I guarantee he’ll put you on them for some Rod Bending, drag pulling action. Thanks again Jason!!! You are the MAN!!!!!

Bill Wilson–I fish with Jason several times a month. The trips are always exciting catching lots of fish from sharks to flounder.

Nick Sabula– If your looking for the ultimate FISHING experience…you’ve found it. Jason Woods of Rod Bending Charters has it all! The best boat, tackle & know how to put you on the fish in any season. This was obvious in a recent trip mid-February 2013 when our boat, surrounded by 20 others was the only one catching 60 lb Black Drum on a cold, windy Saturday afternoon. Great fishing, an elite boat & hilarious conversations is what your going to experience with Capt. Jason Woods. I highly recommend for all occasions…Friends, Family or Business. Thanks again Jason & looking forward to our next trip!

Junior Lehmann–We had an awesome time with Capt. Jason. He is so easy to get along with, and was great with us.  Within about 5 min, he put me on my very first bull red! And it wasn’t just any little fish, either!  We WILL be back to fish with Rod Bending Charters again real soon.  Once again, Thank You for the trip!  It made our anniversary awesome!
