Captain Jessie started out the day be meeting at the dock. When we left the dock I was surprised to see how smooth the boat ride was and how well he handle it in the water. He also had music playing for the ride. When we got to our first fishing spot he showed me and my spouse how to fish the style that we would be that day. With in 10 minute he had us both catching fish. He kept our hooks baited and helped watch our rods. Later in the day when we had multiple species of fish in the boat we decided to get in the water and wad fish for bigger fish. He is a very good guide and he hospitality was out of this world he had us feeling like we had been friends for ever. If we ever visit gavelston again we will definitely book with him again.

Capt. Jesse Fransisco is a real professional. The day we went fishing the fish were not biting well. All other boats were staying in one place and had no luck. So Capt. Jesse Fransisco tried about 10 different spots and we found fish! We even caught Jack Crevalle! It was the best fishing I had in my life!

My fiancé and I booked a trip with Gulf Coast King. Captain Jesse made us feel very welcome. He is very knowledgeable about where the fish are. He also instructed us on proper technique on hooking and landing the fish. He is very friendly and we consider him to be a friend now. I will use him every time I am in the Galveston area. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Great Experience, with inclement weather all around us I thought for sure the trip was going to be a flop. However Capt Jesse’s knowledge and persistence saved the day.  As we began the day the weather forced us to seek shelter which I appreciated our Captains concern for our safety. What was unexpected was the fact that he gave us extra time later in the day and bought us each a snack while we waited out the storm. As it turned out that extra time netted us 5 nice trout and a huge Red fish which ended up making the trip for my son. I cannot tell you how much Jesse’s customer service and commitment to put fish on the boat meant. It was my last fishing trip with my son before he leaves for college. He went the extra mile and made our day fantastic. The boat was smooth, the equipment was excellent and his knowledge of the area was huge. I look forward to a future trip with Capt Jesse but I look even more forward to the going away to college fish fry.

The wind was not in our favor last Thursday,  but Captain Jessie was determined to give us an experience we would never forget! He is very skilled and knows where to find the fish! I really enjoyed our trip and will return!  We had a great time,  and left the dock with dinner in hand! Thank you for such a great time!

Great day of fishing last weekend with Cpt Jesse and my family.  Hit multiple reefs where we pulled in fish after fish on plastics while the croaker soakers looked on in envy, before we headed to back in the marsh to hunt reds!  Every time I go I learn something new about reading the water and the fish. Jesse is great with everyone from novices (like my wife) to self-proclaimed pro’s (like my uncle) and I am glad to be a repeat customer.

Captain Jesse is very knowledgeable and was early and well prepared. For my first time Bay fishing I was very comfortable and we had a great time and great catch. I look forward to next time.

I’ve been out with Captain Francisco a few times and he always has put me on fish. This past Saturday he introduced me to dredging croakers across shell bottom. It proved to be an effective technique because the trout were holding close to the bottom. We ended up with 16 trout the largest going 24” and the smallest about 18”. It was a great trip and I would recommend Jesse to anyone, from beginners to old salts, who wanted to learn more about fishing.
