Capt. Jay Garcia Fishing Charter

Join Capt. Jay Garcia Fishing Charter and experience some of the best fishing in Texas. The state is famous for its inshore fishing and this is exactly what you’ll be doing with Capt. Jay. Starting in San Leon, you’ll sail the waters of Galveston Bay Complex in search of some rod-bending action. You can start your adventure any time between March and the end of October.

Capt. Jay will take you on a trip on his 22’ Seahunt Triton vessel. This bay boat is perfect for the shallow waters you’ll visit. On top of great design add the power of 150 HP Mercury engine and Lowrance GPS, and you’ll find yourself on a rich fishing spot in no time.

Your main targets are Texan Big Three – Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder. You can occasionally land Sheepshead and Black Drum by using light tackle and spinning. As a reward after the trip, you get to keep your catch and Capt. Jay will clean it for you.

You’ll be provided with Penn fishing equipment and you’ll catch live bait on your way to the fishing spot. There’s fresh water on the boat but feel free to bring your favorite beverages and food. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license for the day. Kids are welcome to join if they are at least 5 years old. Life vests for them are provided, just contact the captain in advance.

Capt. Jay Garcia Fishing Charter is ready to take you out on the water and show you what Texas inshore is all about. Just choose how long you want to stay on the boat and book your spot.

Captain Jay Garcia has been fishing since he was 4 years old. He grew up on the Galveston coast. A few years back, he used to do a lot of tournaments, such as Blackjack tournament in West Bay, Texas boys fishing tournament, Texas boys slam tournament (won), Trout tournament, AGC tournament back. After a lot of success on some of those competitions, his friends suggested to start guiding fishing trips. He soon realized that's the best thing he could do and the rest is history.
