About Your Guide

20 Years of Experience
Profile photo of Captain Experiences guide Jesse

Captain Jesse is a full-time Galveston fishing guide who looks forward to having you on board to chase Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder and more. Captain Jesse has fished the waters of the Galveston Bay since he was just ten years old. He enjoys fishing with live and artificial bait for Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder, and offers wade and drift fishing trips through East Galveston Bay, West Galveston Bay, and Trinity Bay.

Captain Jesse runs a 23’ Gulf Coast center console boat powered by a 200 HP Evinrude engine. The boat has plenty of space for up to 4 anglers and is equipped with the latest electronics, safety equipment, a trolling motor, and anchoring system to ensure that you stay on top of the fish. The boat also contains plenty of storage, as well as an icebox and live bait tank.

Captain Jesse primarily fishes with live bait, which he provides at an additional fee of $25. He also enjoys throwing artificial lures depending on anglers' preferences, and adapts his fishing based on the activity of Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder in the moment.

Captain Jesse is sponsored by Waterloo Rods and provides quality reels as well. Once you return to the dock, Captain Jesse will be happy to clean and fillet your catch for fridge (or grill!) back home.

This is a family-friendly charter, and Captain Jesse prides himself on showing kids the ropes. Passionate about growing the sport amongst the next generation, he also organizes youth fishing tournaments for young local anglers through his Future Anglers Associations Fishing Series.

Jesse was a great guide! My brother and I had not been fishing in a while and needed to knock some rust off. Jesse was very patient with us and helped when we needed it. He knew the area well and even cleaned everything we caught! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a fun helpful guide in the area.

Captain Jesse was awesome. We were running late that morning due to some traffic issues and Jesse kept us on the water longer than required to make sure we had a great experience. Definitely went above and beyond. Thanks again Jesse.

Despite fog that did not burn off until after 10am my 13 yo son and I had a great day on the water. Hit appx 10 different spots and hooked over a dozen speckled trout. Including the last one that we caught and ate at a restaurant two hours after boating it. Excellent trip… excellent captain. Very prepared and good with kids. My son refused to bring a jacket and when he started shivering on the boat captain Jesse offered his. A+ Customer service and A+ enthusiasm for his profession.
