Had a great time fishing with Jay. He did his best to get us on the fish. Caught some good trout. Thanks Jay for the experience.

Had a great 2 days fishing with Mr. Jay! Even though the weather/ fishing was tough, he worked super hard to put us on the fish. We will definitely be back to fish with him again! We had a great time!

Captain Jay tried extremely hard to get my husband and I some fish we got one keeper an 3 undersized Red fish. He is the perfect guide, he wont back down till you get some fish. Some days the fish jus...t aren't biting. But you'll get your moneys worth! Can't wait to go again next year. See More

Jay is one of the best Guides around. He put myself, my wife and my 9yr old son on some HUGE black drum 35", 35 1/2" and 41 1/2" respectively. He then spent the rest of the day trying to get us as ma...ny different species as possible. If you want someone to work their butt off for you and your friends or family this is your guy! See More

My first saltwater, guided trip. I've done lots of freshwater bass fishing (Lake Amistad). Must say Capt. Jay provided an outstanding experience. 1st class all around. Excellent service!!

Capt Jay worked hard to find some awesome reds for me and my daughter on a day with less than desireable weather.

Cap'n Jay is the best!
The Red Dragon heading into Port Aransas. Lots of fun for the family! Interactive show with sword fights, water gun fights, face painting, learning how to be a pirate, mixed in with a dolphin watch and sightseeing. Tons of fun, all kids young and old will have a blast on it. Give her a whirl while your down here fishing with me!
Wading with top waters this morning! Lots of action.
Doing work with Wright & McGill rods, they are tough!

Ok folks, after the big clean up I'm back to fishing a few days a week, and mostly will be in Port O'Connor, but will also be fishing Rockport when needed. Wading is the best, but boat trips can be done. I have a house on the water available In POC to rent if needed. So far all of my weekends are booked in October, but I have several weekdays available. Feel free to text me for the best response (service is still weak on calls). 361-813-4120.

Here's a few pics from the last few weeks. Whackin' and stackin', the fish have been stacking up like chord wood!

My guys asked for drum this morning, so we took a chance and made a run into a shallow hole and it paid off!
