Captain Jay offers action-packed Rockport fishing charters year-round.

Born into a family of avid anglers, Captain Jay's fished the inshore Texas water since a very young age. Raised in Galveston before the family moved South when he was 14. Taking after his father, Captain Jay began his fishing career competing in several Bass tournaments, and even guided clients in competition.

With a lifetime's experience under his belt, Captain Jay knows what it takes to provide a fantastic end-to-end fishing experience.

The only thing you'll need to worry about is spotting the first Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Triple Tail, or whatever other inshore species cross your path. Captain Jay will have you ready to cast as he provides quality Waterloo and Shimano rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and artificial lures.

You'll be fishing aboard Captain Jay's 23’ Shoalwater Catamaran, which offers one of the smoothest-rides around. With a shallow base, she’s suitable for all kinds of shallow water and all types of fishing. Powered by a 200 HP Mercury Pro XP motor, you'll be gliding across the bay system at up to 50 knots.

This fishing vessel features everything you need for a safe and productive day on the water, including all necessary safety gear, a fishfinder, GPS, and a live well to keep your bait fresh.

Captain Jay is passionate about spreading the sport of fishing among young anglers, and he invites you to bring the whole family along!
