Gulf Coast King

9301 Broadway Street
Galveston TX, United States

Join Captain Jesse Francisco for a fun and family friendly fishing trip with Gulf Coast King. Fishing with a captain who has over 15 years experience fishing the local waters, you are sure to have a great time catching fish on your own personalized fishing trip!

You will be fishing aboard a roomy 23 ft Gulf Coast VS center console boat that is powered by a fast 200 HP Evinrude engine. The boat has plenty of space for up to four anglers and is equipped with the latest electronics and safety equipment to ensure that your day on the water is safe and successful. The boat’s trolling motor and anchoring system will allow you to approach fish stealthily, and with plenty of storage on board as well as an ice box and live bait tank, it will be sure to fulfill your inshore fishing needs.

Captain Jesse primarily fishes with live bait, which he provides at a charge of $20 per person. He also enjoys throwing artificial lures, and adapts his fishing styles to what he considers to be the most effective way of targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder on the day of the trip. Quality rods and reels are provided for you to use throughout your trip, and once you return to the dock Captain Jesse will clean and fillet your catch.

This is a family friendly charter, and Captain Jesse has a reputation for being great with kids who are learning to fish. Passionate about getting the next generation interested in the local waterways, he also organizes youth fishing tournaments for young local anglers through his Future Anglers Associations Fishing Series.

Had a great time while out on the water with Jesse! He was amazing to accommodate my girlfriend and I. All our acommodations were met and he taught us so much. Though we didn’t land many fish (due to us being first timers). I would highly recommend him to fellow friends and future clients. We will definitely be seeking out the pond for practice and call on Jesse for our next trip.

Capt Jesse and I were in contact several times prior to our trip. He was a pleasant man to speak with. Capt Jesse was set up to go much earlier than our agreed upon meeting time and had already taken care of our parking. He was very friendly and open to conversation. Capt Jesse was very patient with us as this was our first chartered trip and my boss’s first time fishing in salt water. He did “yell” at us a few times, but we probably deserved it. In all honesty, we all had fun diggin at each other, which made the trip that much more enjoyable. Capt Jesse was able to put us on the fish, but we would have had twice as many fish if we had been better fishermen. We did end up with a nice box at the end of the day, but this trip was more about the experience. By the end of the day, Jesse was more than our captain. He was our friend.
