Meet our GuidesCapt. Jako Lucasfrom Austin, TX

Raised in South Africa, Jako Lucas began fishing South Africa’s fresh and saltwater destinations at the age of four. He represented his country in various competitions throughout his youth before starting his career as a full-time guide in 2006. Along the way he expanded his horizons to include photography and film work, establishing his own action film production company, Capt Jack Productions. Jako’s guide resume includes years of working in Mongolia, Norway, Russia and all throughout the Indian Ocean; including time spent on Astove, Cosmoledo, Farquhar, Providence, and Alphonse. He’s fished all across the globe and has won numerous awards for his film work. In between his travels, he is guiding on the Texas Coast for Redfish, Jack’s, Black Drum and the odd Texas Tarpon with his new Beavertail Mosquito.

‘Having spent almost 2 decades on boats and skiffs all over the world I can honestly not say enough great things about my new Beavertail Mosquito. It runs like a dream and I can take it super skinny. This gives me the upper hand guiding for those super skinny tailing Redfish here on the Texas Coast. It is built to perfection and I am honored to be part of the Beavertail family. Amazing skiffs build by amazing people.’
