Capt. T.J. Christensen

Capt. T.J. Christensen has spent the majority of his adult life pursuing a passion that many others dream of, but that few seldom get to experience. With the protected Gulf Coast inland fisheries and Matagorda Island marsh as his office space, Capt. T.J. spent more than twenty years as a licensed U.S. Coast Guard captain and hunting and fishing guide for Bay Flats Lodge. In 2013, however, the owners of Bay Flats Lodge, Capt. Chris Martin, and his wife Deb, presented Capt. T.J. with an opportunity of a lifetime – the role as Operations Manager for the lodge. It was that same year that Capt. T.J. retired the keys to his boat and accepted a new path to personal and professional growth with the lodge. His first major challenge in his new role was to oversee the entire building process of the The Flats facility, which would allow Bay Flats Lodge to practically double their occupancy at the time. Since those initial days, Capt. T.J. has learned what it takes to be an accomplished Operations Manager for the largest, most successful hunting and fishing lodge and resort on the Texas coast. From hiring local talent for lodge staffing, or recruiting the best in the business for the Bay Flats team of professional guides, to managing all the general day-to-day lodge procedures, Capt. T.J. Christensen does it all. He takes great pride in providing only the best the industry has to offer to our family of guests – a true dedication to your comfort that will be obvious during your stay at Bay Flats Lodge.
