We booked a last minute trip with Jared. He responded quickly by email and setting up the booking was a breeze. We met him at the dock and he had the cooler loaded up and ready to go. My kids (10 and 7), my husband, my Dad and I were looking forward to a day on the water and we weren't disappointed! Jared has an excellent way with the kids - he didn't just cast for them, he taught them, step by step, how to do it themselves. He was right there to help when they needed him, without being in the way. They were so proud because they knew they were the ones fishing.

Jared knows the area and well and each kid caught in excess of 15 fish. We saw dolphins, manatees and rays.

He spent a lot of time talking with the kids about life choices and following their passion. Great lessons from a young entrepreneur.

Everyone of us were delighted and if you are looking for a very experienced, friendly, engaging guide, Jared is your guy!

What a fantastic evening!!! We boarded the boat at 4:45 and returned a little after 7:00. Jared was a wonderful captain and the experience could not have been better. He knew everything about the area and was quick to answer any questions that we had. We are looking forward to joining him in the near future for a possible fishing trip. While out in Hurricane Pass we saw a pod of dolphins which made the trip extra special. Thank you Capt Jared for such a memorable evening, and we look forward to seeing you again real soon.

If you want a top notch fishing experience, this is the guy that you need to go with. Captain Jared is a local born and raised and knows the area like the back of his hand. We went on a 8 hours excursion with my son and dad and it was an experience of a lifetime. Capt Jared talked us through what kind of fishing we would be doing and where we would go. He had a loose plan for the day, based on the tides, weather, etc.

We were not disappointed. We were on fish within 10 minutes of leaving the dock, and it really didn't stop all day. We fished docks early, then some oyster beds, small islands, then out to some reefs, the sand key jetty, then back to docks to finish up. We caught some of everything (black drum, sheepshead, a flounder!, red fish, mangrove snapper, a shark, snook, and trout). Many were not keepers, but we did pretty well. I think we took home 11 keepers, after catching about 50 fish (we kind of lost count). If we didn't have any luck in a spot, we moved on pretty quickly. He seemed to know the patterns intimately.

He was such a good guide. He truly wants people of have a great fishing experience. He was disappointed that he couldn't have gotten us more fish (he highly recommends the spring season). We were happy with our experience.

NOTE: If you are staying local, there is a place in Ozona (Molly Goodheads) that will prepare your fish. Be sure to check ahead of time because they do not do it year round.

3 little girls and 1 Captain Jared!!! No problem for this pro. My husband and I sat back and took lots of pictures while the kids reeled in fish after fish non stop for about 3 hours. Jared is professional and great with kids. He knows all the fishing spots. I have done sport fishing before but this was far more relaxing as the water was calm and no one got sick. Would definitely go back to Captain Jared.

My two sons and I (ages 20 and 15) fished with Jared just after Christmas. We met Jared at the dock the morning of the trip. He is a friendly and knowlegable captain who makes you feel comfortable on his boat AND knows how to get you on the fish. I have chartered a fair share of boats across the country and Jared is among the best I've been on. Caught about 30 snook along with a few trout, jack crevalle and lady fish. Great fun!
