    I booked a last minute trip with captain Jim Garrison from the captains experience site while visiting my parents in San Antonio. I’m glad I picked him, within five minutes of anchoring I caught my first red fish and kept catching fish all morning. He is very knowledgeable and made it a fun trip for me. We shared stories and had some laughs too. For a fun day of fishing in Rockport, I recommend booking with captain Jim.
