Background
The outdoors is my passion. Been fishing since a very young age and it has always been a dream of mine to become a professional fishing guide. I specialize in gigging monster Flounder and chasing after those giant Trout and Reds year round! Very kid friendly and I love working with people new to the world of fishing as much as the experienced. GET HOOKED is the name and FISHING is the game!
Techniques
Of all the ways to fish topwater is probably my personal favorite. Nothing like the fast explosive strike of a speckled trout, or the massive wake a redfish puts off hitting that plug! Drift fishing with a popping cork and live shrimp or lures is a must! And the amazing croaker fishing months for BIG trout are the hot summer months! Jigging in deep water and trolling at and around the nearshore oil rigs and platforms is another fun, fast paced technique that is awesome for flat days!

Went fishing on Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The captain had some truck issues and was late, but made up for it woth extended time and good fishing.  My 10 year old landed his best trout to date at 18.5 inches.  We had a great time on the water.  Dont let the captains age fool you, he knows what hes doing.

It started slow but Jason kept trying to get the boys and I on the fish!
His hard work paid of and the boys knocked the dead!
Thanks Captain Jason!

Had a great time. Lots of walking though. We gigged 6 Flounder and learned alot so it was definitely worth it and Captain Jason cleaned our fish afterwards.

What a great day. Captain Jason was a true professional. He put us on the fish from start to finish. We all hit our limit for specs. Next time I’m in Corpus, I’m call Captain Jason.

Today was a little windy and was rough getting to our spot. The trip included 4 of us and the fishing was a little slow in the morning, but actually picked up shortly after. We ended up catching some speckled trout, black drum, whitings and catfish and ended up keeping 8 trout, 5 drum, one catfish and 3 whitings for the morning half day trip. We all had a great time even with it being a little rough. I would definitely recommend captain Jason!

The experience with Capt. Jason was amazing!  He was so good with my 9 and 7 yr. old boys and they had a blast!  They are still talking about the trip! He baited hooks for us and even cast for the boys.  He showed my mom and i how to cast his reels and we got the hang of it quickly. He even switched the reels to right handed for the two of us and he has plenty of equipment! He knew his spots and we caught our limit…20 trout, including a 22 1/2 by my 9 yr. old.  I would re-book with him in a second…we “got hooked!”

A great time was had by all. The fish weren’t really cooperating on that Saturday but we still saw some action and had a good time.

Great fishing trip.  Capt. Vead put us on some good fish and we had a great day.  Some of the largest drum I have ever caught.  If you are looking to charter a fishing trip, this is your guy.  You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks Jeff, really enjoyed it. Hope to do it again soon.

This trip turned out to be the best fishing trip I have ever been on. Not only was Jason professional, His respect for the gulf coast was outstanding. To get a few drum would have been good, maybe a red or two but he did far better than that. We limited on reds, black drum and almost limited on trout. We also caught a couple sheepshead that were keepers.

Capt. Jason led us to some nice fish. Captain and crew were great. We had never been flounder gigging before and they were patient and taught us well. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

This was our first fishing trip, also for my birthday. Captain Jason was awesome and we caught way more fish than we expected. He went out of his way to make sure we had fun, including 2 teenage girls!!!  We WILL be coming back.

Captain Jason was a great guide and was determined to find the fish for us. And he did. He made sure everyone, especially the kids had a great time. I’d definitely recommend Captain Jason with Get Hooked to everyone wanting a chartered fishing trip.

It was a good trip… Kids loved it even though it was hot, they still had a good time. Caught probably 100 or so fish total. 18 speckled trout keepers and 11 black drum keepers. It was a really nice trip..
Thank Jason!

Excellent. Captain Jason is a very relaxed and patient guy. He works hard to put you on the fish and he also educates you about flounder and their habitat. The trip definitely took the stress off of getting married the next morning in Port A. Already booking another trip.
