Captain Jason and his boat were great. He was professional and patient, always making sure we had what we needed. The fish were not biting that day but Capt. Jason was a great guy and we really enjoyed the experience.

If you are ever in Galveston and want to to go fishing call Captain Jason Wood with Rod Bending Charters. We caught our limit for black tip sharks in 40 minutes caught Mackerel Sheephead Trout and a StingRay that weighed 150 lbs. This trp was the best we ever had. We will definitely comeback next year. We had a very similar experience with him last year.

Captain Jason did a great job of getting our girls on fish!  It was a slow day for all the Guided trips and I think our guide put us on the most fish!  It wasn’t a day for the “Big Catch” so Jason took us where the water wasn’t so rough and our girls could just catch fish, which is what we did!  As soon as we get home we will be cooking a fish taco feast for friends and family!!  If you have children he will make sure they are happy and catching fish!!  We were very pleased with our trip!

Captain Jason was able to put us on fish (and shark) while the majority of other charters were not catching. He was very professional and was great with my Grandson Kaden. We were able to catch Sheepshead, Spinner Shark, Lady Fish, Spanish Mackerel, Gaftopsail, and Black Tip Shark. This was not easy as the wind was out of the east and the weather has not been cooperating. We are going to book with them again earlier in the year next year. My Grandson had a great time and says that “Jason was very nice and helpful”.

GREAT trip for families with kids. Wanted my 7 yo to catch shark and capt. Jason put us on them. Got seasick at the first spot and he was completely cool and compassionate and moved more inshore and found us some shark! After searching to book a charter, I definitely picked the right one for our needs. Highly recommend this trip,FUN, laid back and worth the money. He even cut the jaw out for my son which he normally doesn’t do

Day before trip I sent an email through fishingbooker.com to the captain. I was concerned about the weather. Fishingbooker said they would contact the captain. I never heard back from captain or Fishingbooker so we went on our trip. We get out on the water and there’s 25 mile per hour wind. Captain proceeds to tell us fishing is not that good in winds above 14. Well that’s great would have been nice for him to contact us and see about rescheduling. We go out past the jetties and there is 5 foot seas. Waves where pretty cool but then again we paid $600 to fish not to ride the waves. Then the captain took us back in shore by cruise ship dock and the fishing was terrible around there. Then his buddy said they are catching sharks out by the jetties so we went back out there. Captain told us he would like to reschedule a three hour trip when the fishing is good and I would only have to pay $80 for gas. Captain said he would contact me when the fishing is good. I will post a follow up to this review after we go out on our reschedule date or in couple months if there is no rescheduled fishing trip.

My boyfriend and I went out on the fishing charter with Captain Little Jason. He was absolutely amazing and really made our experience one for the books. We went out on the charter 2 days ago and are already discussing when we can go back and fish with him again.
We caught around 20 trout, a bunch of shark, and a couple other fish I don’t recall the names of….Let’s just say we brought back the family dinner and still had left overs. Highly recommend.

Jason was a great Captain. It was a really foggy morning, and there were not a lot of fish moving. (December) We caught a few, and had a great time. If you want an easy going captain that is great with kids and whatever you as the customer are looking for, then I highly reccomend Jason. Great trip!

The captin and crew were not prepared for the morning trip out, no bait no ice…  The trip was to leave the dock by 6:00am. We departed 6:30. Drove around over an hour looking for bait. Rip off!! short trip to the north jetties. Arriving around 8:30 and leaving at 11:00 am. $550 dollars trip 100.dollar tip. Five small trout. Never again.

We can’t control bait shops running out of shrimp with 5ft seas the shrimpers don’t go out. We try our hardest to be prepared customers have no idea what goes on behind the scene we were at doc at 5 am looking for bait making calls and searching our only choice was to hunt down a dragging shrimp boat as did 5 other charter captains. We also can’t control weather and high seas which make fishing very tough. I’m sorry you had a bad trip due to no bait on the whole island and high seas.

This seriously was the best family vacation. Captain Jason is a wonderful captain and great guy! We caught fish and sharks. Saw the beautiful sunrise and dolphins playing. My family was blessed to have such a great captain that helped us make many memories for our time together. We will be coming back!

Good boat and gear. Knowledgeable and friendly guide.  Just bad luck I guess.  I didn’t find out we were going to fish for shark until we got there. It was a TOTAL surprise. I thought we were going after the usual gulf/bay catches. I was a little taken aback by that but I went with the flow. I seldom get time with my sons and we were so looking forward to this trip. I couldn’t really afford to spend the money but did it anyway just to show my boys a good time. Coming up empty was very disappointing. I guess find out what you’re going after and find out if it’s biting.

Please give me a call to discuss trip I would like to know details on what went wrong I was under impression yall caught several Sharks and your headline says zero catch. I was on a deep sea trip so really didn’t have time to talk with my other captain. If the trip was not up to par I will make it right!
Thanks

The fish were not cooperating very well on the day of our trip, but our captain worked very hard to get us on the fish.  We ended up catching 4 keeper sized fish, that was satisfactory I thought for a day when fish didnt seem to want to bite.  I took my wife and 9 and 15 yr old daughters.  My daughters had never fished out of a boat before. We tangled lines a few times, but Jason was very patient and helped them out.  This was a good charter to pick for taking my girls fishing.
