Black’s Guide Service welcomes you to Montgomery, TX, for a lovely day on Lake Conroe. For Captain Jason Black, it’s beyond important that he gives his all, and he hopes to exceed the expectations of everyone aboard! He takes pride in having excellent-quality gear, the latest navigation and fishfinder technology, as well as a clean boat. With almost 20 years of experience as a teacher, Capt. Jason loves to educate everyone about fishing, especially children. Join him aboard and have a memorable fishing adventure in the Lone Star state!

The boat you’ll be using is a restored 27’ Regency pontoon that can sit up to 8 guests. The vessel provides plenty of room for everybody to fish and not feel cramped. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury Verado four-stroke engine, it will quickly take you to the fishing grounds.

Capt. Jason guides primarily for Catfish and uses many different techniques to attract them. You’re welcome to catch and release or keep the full legal limit. If you choose to keep your fish, the captain will be happy to clean it for you so you can take some delicious fish fillets home to cook up!

The captain also guides for Carp and Buffalo (European-style). Most of these trips are done from the bank, but he will often boat to an area suitable to fish from the bank. This kind of fishing guarantees action and a different kind of experience. It even made the captain’s wife change her mind and fall in love with fishing! Feel free to ask more about this style – the captain is happy to tell you.

You’re covered for all the fishing tackle and bait. But before you come aboard, you’ll need to make sure to have your TX fishing licenses and some snacks and drinks.

Join Capt. Jason and have a great time catching fish with Black’s Guide Service!

Captain Jason runs fun and exciting lake fishing trips out of Montgomery. The captain was a teacher for almost 20 years, so inquisitive children are welcome aboard! He likes to teach kids and adults alike about all things fishing. Ask him anything about the boat, gear, electronics, or details of fishing itself – seasonal patterns, the challenge of anticipating what the fish is doing, the effect of the weather, perfecting the baiting process, and much more.
