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.

Had the best time with Captain Carson. It was our first time bass fishing outside the Midwest and he was an excellent guide and great at teaching us some new techniques. He was very knowledgable about the area, and has experience with all sorts of fishing from river and lake to offshore. Shared some great stories, had an awesome experience, and plan to be going out again! Thanks again Carson!

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!
