Jen has been fishing the Texas surf for over 13 years!  She is the first woman to guide on Padre Island National Seashore.  She grew up running limb lines for catfish & frog gigging the lakes and creeks of East Texas.  Once she got a taste of the salt life, she was HOOKED!

Jen is fueled by her desire to catch different species & bigger fish.  She takes pride in promoting catch & release, and keeping the beaches clean for generations to come!  She loves children & every day strives to be a positive influence.

She specializes in catching all species from
Redfish, Trout, Jack Crevalle, Black Drum, Tarpon, Stingray, Sharks, Mackerel & MORE!
