Jason graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Marketing in 1998. Born and raised in the Texas Hill Country, Jason grew up fishing area rivers and lakes. After some early trips with his grandfather in Port Mansfield, it was clear that saltwater fishing was “in the blood.”
Captain Jason Wagenfehr is a big believer in working for success. As a guide who specializes in artificial lure presentations to trophy speckled trout and bruiser redfish, he knows you can’t just chunk it out there and reel-in a fish every time. It takes someone who understands how to present the lure in the right place, while retrieving it at the correct speed, and all the while maintaining the proper cadence. Add in varying tides, weather and the ever-changing patterns of the fish that swim our bay system, and you have to not only be lucky, as is so often needed in fishing, you have to also be smart. Capt. Jason will take a client and tailor their day according to their skill level. If that client wants to chase big trout with plastics or topwaters, then they will learn from someone who has over 20-years of experience running the San Antonio Bay system. Jason is patient and has a calming demeanor that is important in grinding for big fish on tough days, or just talking the subtilties of how to make a Corky move properly depending on where the fish happen to be staged in the water column. If fooling fish with an imitation of natural bait is your thing, ask for Captain Jason and you’ll be rewarded with a great day on the water and a few new ideas for your artificial lure playbook.
Captain Jason has mastered coastal angling in the waters from Port O’Connor to Corpus Christi and areas of the Lower Laguna Madre, and for the last several years has been working for Bay Flats Lodge, who emphasizes the “Exceptional Customer Experience.” This experience, combined with his keen fishing knowledge, helps to ensure that his customers will have a great day on the water.
