Jimmy's Gone Fishing Guide Service

With Jimmy’s Gone Fishing Guide Service, the beautiful waters of Lake Conroe will be all yours. If you are looking for a fun and productive adventure to hone your angling skills or introduce your kids to fishing, you have found the right place.

Join Capt. James aboard his spacious 20’ Avalon Salt Water Series Tri-Toon boat. Its 90 HP Yamaha motor will power you to the hottest bite around and the top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics will build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding.

The boat has plenty of seating and fishing space for up to 4 anglers. As well as that, it features a livewell loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible and an excellent sound system. The only thing that’s missing is you!

Jimmy’s Gone Fishing Guide Service specializes in catching Catfish and Hybrid Striped Bass. These delicious fish species will be cleaned at the end of your trip – a service that not many of the guides on the lake offer. Capt. James will also gladly season your fish fillets; the current seasoning options include Bayou Cajun or Lemon Pepper.

Everything will be provided for the trip but licenses, food, and drinks. A 10% discount is available for active duty military, law enforcement, and first responders.
