Captain JAYCE is the bomb. From the early communications all the way to the end of our trip he was all you could ask for in a captain. This young man has so much going for him. We were a group of seniors, some not so proficient and some newbies. He helped us from start to finish and even helped us arrange to have our fresh catch fried at the food truck located at the marina. It was delicious. Quite a memory. Thank you Captain JAYCE.Donna H.
We went on half day charter and it was such a great trip mainly because of captain Jayce. He is professional and very knowledgeable about the area. We will be rebooking in the futureBob S.
If I had to rate Captain Jayce Massaro from 1 to 10, I’d make him an 11!!!!! He has an excellent knowledge of the waters and always put us on fish. I’ve fished with him several times and always get fish. Lots of fun. I’d recommend him to anyone!Gary V.

All Aboard the Vessel: About the Boat
Captain Jayce welcomes you aboard his trusted vessel as you set off on your fishing expedition. Serving as the ultimate guide boat in Crystal River, the Young 24 is an ideal charter boat for inshore waterways as well as offshore rough seas. It’s all smooth sailing aboard the Young 24. Coming in at over 24′ in length, its design ensures a smooth ride no matter the depth of water.
Our purpose built 20ft Go-Devil is made for one thing, to simply get where others can’t. This boat is utilized in the Fall/Winter time when we get our extremely low tides as the fish will get trapped in the deeper pockets of water “holes” back in the creeks. Often times all around the deep holes there is 2-3” of water making it a challenge for any other style of boat to make it to the fish. This is where our boat is set apart as we can safely run in merely inches of water to get to the fish.
While you’re aboard Captain Jayce’s boat, you can look forward to:
- Storage compartments that allow you to bring items onboard while keeping them dry
- Plenty of room to bring the whole family
- Cushioned seats which promote a comfortable ride, whether it’s through choppy waters or gentle rolling waves
- Memories and stories to tell for years to come
