Capt. Jesse Francisco has been fishing Galveston Bay since he was 10 years old. Utilizing his 33 years of fishing experience in Galveston Bay Complex allowed his knowledge of theoretical and practical understanding of targeting speckle trout, redfish, flounder, black drum, sheepshead and mangrove snappers. Using live and artificial baits help him expand his knowledge, which he enjoys sharing while guiding the Texas Bays.  The main baits to target these game fish are live shrimp, mullet and croakers.  Captain Jesse loves to wade, drift in the bay using both live and soft plastics baits at different times of the year.  His Galveston Fishing Charter will coordinate multi boat trips where large groups or parties need more than one Captain. His team along with their vast skills won't disappoint. Managing all the ins and outs to make your experience hassle free. So if you would like a great day on the water, and a great learning experience; give the Captain a call and get ready for a good time fishing!
