A friend and I went out with Jimmy on 8/14 and killed it. Jimmy put us on fish for the entire time we were out. We limited out on Black drum and proceeded to limit on Red's.. All of the Red.'s were between 23 and 25". There is no telling how many fish we through back. We will definitely be booking with Jimmy on our net trip down. He is a great guy to spend time on the water with. Oh yeah, he knows how to find fish.

My wife and I went out with Jimmy today. We limited out on reds then went after trout. I caught a 22.5" trout and my wife caught a black drum about 24". Jimmy was not only a great guide, but we enjoyed visiting with him. Can't wait for our next trip out with him. Oh yeah, we only took a half day trip. None of the others we saw come in had the number or size that we had.

Disappointing trip, Jimmy, our guide was personable enough, but we spent 4 hours and caught 2 speckled trout. Even more disappointing was the fact that Jimmy didn't even seem to recognize the poor experience and offered nothing as a concession, leaving our cost at $240 a fish! Adding to our disappointment, I noted that the guide who was in the slip next to us went out for the exact same time period and came back with a laundry basket FULL of monstrous reds. Oh well, better luck next time.

This spring was our first trip with Jimmy Simmons and we're looking forward to many more in the future. We spent the first hour of the morning looking for red fish and found that they just weren't happening. Instead of spending the rest of the day motoring from one end of Mustang Island to the other, Jimmy took us to a dock where we anchored and spent the rest of the morning pulling in one sheepshead after another. All of us, including my 6-year-old grandson, had a great time and brought home plenty of filets to put in the freezer. Jimmy is a friendly captain who is great with kids and knows when to go to the backup plan to get some action. We'll definitely be back.

I do not right reviews but had such a great time I felt I needed to!! Had a great time fishing with Capt. Jimmy. We just showed up with a small cooler full of eats, drinks, sun screen and Capt. Jimmy took care of the rest. Just had a really wonderful time. My family and I will be booking Capt. Jimmy next time we visit Port Aransas for sure!!
