Professional Guide Jess Rotherham – Central Texas Crappie Fishing Master

With more than 35 years of Crappie fishing experience, Guide Jess Rotherham has an arsenal of custom Crappie fishing techniques at his disposal. Targeting Crappie is an art, and during his 21+ years fishing for Crappie in Texas, Captain Jess has perfected a number of methods to catch trophy fish in the Highland Lakes.

Records set on Jess’s charter boats include:

  • January 2019 black crappie record on Lake Austin for his son Brayden Rotherham
  • His son, Nolan, holds the Junior Lake Buchanan Record for largest white Crappie – Feb. 2011
  • Jess holds the Lake Austin Record for largest black Crappie – Nov. 2014

As you can see, Captain Jess is still pursuing records on The Highland Lakes, and it probably won’t be very long before another is set.

Jess takes great pride in sharing his love of Crappie fishing with families from Texas and out-of-state. Fishing is best enjoyed with close friends and children, so he goes out of his way to make sure the kids on his boat have a good time.

Passing along the proud Texas traditions of Crappie fishing is possible throughout the year, and we are willing to go out of our way to make sure your fishing trip is comfortable, fun, and productive.

Contact Captain Jess today and set up your own fishing adventure. We can’t wait to have you on the boat.

Please remember: NO BANANAS allowed on the boat!
