    We had an amazing time out on Lake Travis with our guide Captain Aaron. Aaron reached out to us before our trip to check in and answer any questions we had. He provided great directions to the floating dock to meet him. We had a super fun morning out on the lake fishing for Bass. We got to try several different Rod & Reel combos, and various spots on Lake Travis. At the end of our trip he gave us a tour of Lake Travis! We will definitely book with Captain Aaron again.

    Jake brought my brothers and me out onto Lake Travis for Guadalupe Bass. Jake put all of us onto Guads and multiple other species as well. Jake was great with explaining everything he did and how to best use different techniques for catching fish. He was also incredibly friendly and personable and was hands down the best guide I’ve ever been on. This was honestly one of the funnest days of fishing I’ve ever had, and it definitely was for my brothers as well! I will probably make another trip with my brothers in the future with Jake for another great day! I highly recommend Jake to anglers of any experience who want to get on some nice fish and just have a great time! Thanks again for a great time, Jake! Hopefully we’ll get back out there with you again!

    My son and I recently went on a guided trip with Derek and we could not be happier! Originally we were scheduled for Lake Austin, but Derek had gotten some news that we should hit Lake Travis instead, and it definitely paid off! His knowledge of the lake and guidance with us novice fishermen (and just a good guy all around) led to some fun results!

    Jake was patient, positive and extremely accommodating to three beginners, including a teenager. I’m looking forward to booking him again when I get another hankering to go fishing.

    Wyatt is a great guide, was willing to work with our busy schedule and get us on the fish fast. In ten mins my friend caught the Texas state bass, what a welcome to Texas that was! Highly recommend him next time we’re back in Texas we’ll definitely be giving him a call.

    Derek did a great job. Even though the weather was a little cold and the fish weren’t too hungry, we hit multiple different spots and everyone on the trip landed something! We also nearly landed a 25 pound mega catfish that would’ve been a personal best! All in all, awesome day, awesome guide.

    Can’t say enough about Jake. 4hour trip and almost 20 fish. The boat, gear everything was top notch. I’ve got a lot of experience but Never fished in Texas. Jake was more than willing to share his knowledge and expertise of the local waters. Great trip!! Thanks Jake and captain experiences

    Jake is great! We booked a 4hr bass fishing trip on Lake Travis after reading his Captain Experiences page. As someone who has never done bass fishing, I needed to learn the basics. Jake was super patient showing us the ropes. We learned how to reel in, set hooks, cast and dislodge stuck lures. We also caught nearly 10 bass including a couple of Guadeloupe bass. I would certainly book again.

    I highly recommend Captain Experiences and Jake. The customer service was great from booking to confirming the trip. We had a wonderful experience with Jake. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and made sure we had a great time. His boat and set provided for a comfortable trip. Jake provided great instruction and encouragement for my 11 year old son. We got to fish in a lot of different spots ensuring that we caught fish. Jake also helped us take great photos.

    We really enjoyed our trip with Jake. It was only supposed to be a half day (4 hours) but it ended up being a 5.5 hour trip! Jake really has a passion for fishing and that is obvious and makes the experience so great. It was just what we needed! We will definitely go with Jake again!

    Ive hired Jake seven times over the last year and a half. Every trip he is amazing. His boat is super nice and his gear is top notch. I always catch fish and have the best time ever. Jake is super friendly and charismatic. His knowledge of largemouth bass fishing and willingness to share is what keeps me hiring him again and again. You won't be sorry hiring Jake.
