Testimonials

Cap’n Jeff was an amazing host!! He was extremely patient with my 9 year old son for the whole trip, casting for him and listening to/answering all 10 million of his questions. He made sure to get us on the fish even with having unfavorable weather. Jeff’s passion and determination to create unforgettable experiences makes him the best Fishing guide around – bar none. Susan (Jeff’s wife) was very welcoming when we got back to the dock. She ensured we had a great time and kept the comradery going for little man. Thank you for the memories!!.

Captain Jeff took us fishing twice in the Galveston Bay and it was such a memorable experience! We hit the honey hole! We caught trout almost every cast and my dad even caught a sheepshead, which was super awesome to see their human-like teeth! If you want to wack’em and sack’em then you need to let Jeff take you fishing!

Kenzie S. – Decatur Texas

Outstanding guide service! Professional, extremely knowledgable and courteous. Jeff made the experience so enjoyable it was like fishing with an old fishing buddy. I highly recommend him whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fisherman.

Gil A. – Beaumont, Texas

Captain Jeff Brandon was great! We had an awesome day and he worked hard putting us on fish. Fished with artificial and live bait. At the end of the day Jeff filleted all the fish and we had a delicious dinner of ceviche, grilled redfish on the half shell, and trout. Clean fast boat and great guide and host. I would not hesitate to recommend Captain Jeff Brandon and will be fishing with him again.

Mike G. – Houston, Texas

We had a great day on the water with Captain Jeff and caught a ton of fish! We caught catfish, trout, flounder, redfish, and even a stingray. I’d booked two other trips with two different guides on previous trips to Crystal Beach and both of those guides canceled the morning of. One because they were out of Galveston and said they couldn’t find the dock they told us to meet at, and the other just never showed up. I’m glad to finally know a trustworthy guide for future trips!

Stephanie R – Granbury, Texas

Good find on Bolivar. I’d expect this guy to have his own fishing show with how great he was. i’ll go back if I’m ever in the area again. Also near a fun restaurant for relaxing after the fact.

Shane K  – Huntsville, Texas

Captain Jeff is a great Fishing Guide and Boat Captain. Even though the weather threw us a curve ball and it wasn’t perfect conditions Jeff went above and beyond to put us on the fish. He is local to Bolivar Peninsula and has the knowledge and experience to find the bite. We spent a full day on the water and he made sure we had a great time and went home with fish. Next time I’m down in the area ill be calling him to do it again!

Posting for my technology challenged husband….my dad, my son, and I had a fantastic trip with Captain Jeff! He is a wonderful person, a godly man, a family man, just a really nice guy to spend time on the water with. We had really tough weather one day but Jeff was so patient and worked very hard and we still caught several fish. The next day the conditions were much better and we crushed the trout! We can certainly see ourselves down in Galveston again and Get the Net is the first call we’ll make! You can book Captain Jeff with complete confidence in his skill and integrity!

JR Black – Lake Charles, LA

What a great day! First time fishing with Jeff and couldn’t be more pleased with the experience! Jeff is a very knowledgeable guide and takes good care of his boat and fishing gear. We had out share of hardheads, black drum, trout, flounder and more. Looking forward to another trip with Jeff and have already recommended him to several friends.

Kevin H – Cypress, Texas

I highly recommend Get the Net Guide Services LLC. I’m a part-time resident here on the peninsula and fish Galveston East Bay regularly. This summer, the fishing has been tough for me. I saw that Capt Jeff Brandon had a last-minute cancellation, and decided to take the opportunity to see if he could put me on the fish. HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! We fished the early AM to almost noon. I prefer to fish artificial lures, and we were constantly getting hooked up throughout the day. We ended up with 6 nice speckled trout and 9 good size sand trout. Caught probably 3 times that (missed a lot more) of barely undersized fish which made the morning go by too fast.

Capt Jeff Brandon is an efficient, deliberate, and professional guide. He has the best set-up I’ve had the pleasure to launch from in East Bay. He brought me up to speed on summer fishing tactics, gear, and boatmanship that I look forward to utilizing when I fish on my own.

Liberty D, Houston Texas

I just cannot say enough good things about Jeff with Get the Net Guide Services LLC. Jeff was such a great instructor with the patience of a saint with my three boys 10,8, &6 yrs old. From untangling lines to casting and helping them land their catch the experience was just phenomenal. Thank yall so much!

Kyle S, Beaumont Texas 

“Captain Jeff is able to cater to advanced anglers as well as newbies! He really knows the area and is an expert navigating the water. Our family has used guides in Alaska, Costa Rica, and some lakes in Texas. Captain Jeff is our absolute favorite! You won’t find anyone more determined to find fish and make your experience memorable.

Jeff kept us on the fish all day around the bay.
Great fisherman as well as knowledgeable about all the best spots to fish in the Galveston bay.
Thanks for a great time Jeff I’m looking forward to it again!

If you are looking for someone to take you fishing on Galveston Bay….Jeff is your man. His knowledge of the bay paid off big…he put us on the fish and it was a very productive Father’s Day outing.

Captain Jeff is the absolute best!! He has been fishing in the area for ages and definitely knows all of the best spots to yield a successful fishing trip! We caught tons of trout and black drum! It was an absolute blast and I highly recommend! Book a trip for the whole family, you won’t regret it!

Megan B – Kountze, Texas

Jeff was an awesome guide. He worked hard putting us on the fish. He was really good with having my crazy kid on the boat. He worked with her a lot and made it a lot of fun for her. We had a great time on the trip will definitely be coming back.

Jake K – Rowlett, Texas

We booked an early morning trip with Captain Jeff for last Saturday. We arrived at the dock before sunrise, loaded onto the boat, picked up the live bait and we were fishing as the sun rose over the horizon. Beautiful Morning. The boat was spotless, fast and built to fish. The rods and reels were top quality and in great working condition. Captain Jeff took us to multiple spots all around the East Bay area. We fished with artificial lures and live baits on the top water and on the bottom. We covered many methods to get us opportunities at hook ups. We eventually ended up in a beautiful spot where I hooked up and landed a 40” Red Drum. Netted by Captain Jeff. I wasn’t going to keep that “once in a lifetime fish” so Capt. Jeff revived it and we released it back to live another day. I recommend booking a trip with Captain Jeff Brandon if you want a reel fishing experience and some great comradery with a really good person. Besides, I know for a fact that there is at least one 40” Red Drum waiting to crash a bait…Good luck on being that angler.

Robert W, Houston Texas 

Best experience I’ve had with a guide!! From setting me up and making sure I was always ready cast out to making sure we were always on top of the fish!!! I will always be booking with Jeff at Get the Net!

Demetrio M, Houston Texas 

Knows the area very well. Kept us on this fish. Knows his way around. Great man. Would definitely go out with him again. Thank you, Captain Jeff, for a great time.

Robert A – Mansfield, Texas 

I always try to support local businesses before corporate, so when I was recommended by a friend to try Get the Net Guide Services in Crystal Beach I decided to give it a shot.

What first impressed me was the professionalism I encountered when I made the reservation and when I arrived at the facilities. I was expecting something along the lines of Robert Shaw’s Quint from Jaws but when I arrived I was greeted by a well spoken and affable individual named Jeff.

Jeff, the proprietor and Captain, quickly made my wife and I feel at home and showed us to his boat which instead of being some ramshackle old beater was instead a very clean modern affair. Everything was well taken care of and inviting.
Any misgivings I had were gone and instead I was able to relax.

In no time at all, the fish were biting and if they weren’t taking the bait, Captain Jeff always knew of another spot. The one thing Quint and Captain Jeff had in common was the tenacity to find the fish. Along the way we had great conversation and a few laughs in between. The Captain knows the area and knows his fish!

Since then, anytime I’m in the Galveston area and have some spare time, I don’t hesitate to visit Get the Net Guide Services. I’d recommend this to anyone from a novice fisherman to an expert. Not only will you have a great experience, the view of Galveston Bay is to die for and you won’t regret coming home with a pile of fish.

Jack F – Wichita Falls, Texas

Jeff was amazing! He was wonderful with kids and fun to be around (unlike most grumpy guides) caught plenty of fish also!

Jimmy T – Belton, Texas

 

I had a great time fishing on Captain Jeff’s boat. Very professional and definitely put us on the fish! I’m definitely going to use his services again!

Hank G.  – Haslet, Texas

“Captain Jeff took us fishing in the Galveston bay for the day. He was able to keep us on the fish to make it a memorable day! Every location we fished that day didn’t disappoint, he knows the area very well. Definitely will have Jeff take me out fishing again!! ??.”

Zak J – Moore, Oklahoma

My husband, dad and to teenage sons loved this! Guide was very friendly, worked hard to make sure they were on fish and was all around very sociable! We will definitely be booking again on our next visit!

Jeff was an amazing guide and knowledgeable of every “honey hole” to make our experience excellent! Thanks for a great day.

Danny B –  Angleton Texas

 

Captain Jeff did a fantastic job getting my family on fish. Even though some in the group had no experience fishing for red fish, speckled trout, and black drum, Captain Jeff was able to get everybody hooked up and ensured everyone had a great time.

Joshua S – Rockwall, Texas

My family enjoyed the fishing trip so very Much! Thank you for being a Wonderful Guide! 

Mary B – Beaumont, Texas 

We had a great time out with Jeff this week on the boat. He was calm and encouraging with both of our boys and they were casting and catching like crazy by the end of our trip! We’ve been fishing Galveston Bay for many years and Jeff’s knowledge of the area and expertise at his craft was beyond evident. Highly recommend his guide services!

Angela S, Greeley, CO 

Great guy ! One of the best fishing trips I’ve ever been on if y’all are down at crystal beach this is the spot !!!

Jagger B,  Houston Texas 

Jeff was a great guide to fish with. I have fished with multiple guides and can say not only is he easy to be around, but he put us on the fish. He took us to several places within the first few hours and we hooked up, once it got slow we would move somewhere else and hook up there again. Once the time was up we got back to the dock, he cleaned the fish for us. Great trip with my dad, thanks Jeff!
