THE HISTORY, GUIDE AND FLEET BEHIND
HIGH STAKES BASSIN'
FULL-TIME FISHING GUIDE
Hello and welcome to highstakesbassin.com. My name is Martin (Jay) Greishaw and I am a full-time Zapata resident Falcon Lake guide. I specialize in offshore deep water tactics for big largemouth bass.
I run a family orientated business. I have two kids, Sierra and Madison. We all love to fish and when I am not guiding we are out finding new areas to fish on a daily basis.
Drop me an email and let’s get after ’em.

MEET THE FLEET
DONZI 35ZF (35' CENTER CONSOLE)
Controlled Chaos is a 35′ Donzi Center Console with a cuddy cabin to help keep all of your personal belongings safe and dry while on the water. Powered by twin 250hp Suzuki outboards, this boat is a blast on the ride out and back. Equipped for serious offshore and tournament fishing, Controlled Chaos is rigged with the latest suite of electronics, including networked GPS, sonar, and radar. A spacious back deck gives our anglers plenty of room to fight any fish in season. A huge in-deck fish box will keep all but the largest catches stowed away (for the really big ones we break out the “body bags”!). With a 350 gal main fuel tank, she is capable of taking us anywhere your imagination can dream up! She is equipped to do everything from catching a monster bull red on the jetties, to landing the swordfish or marlin of a lifetime 100 miles offshore.
Carolina Classic 28CC Express
The “Head Turner” is a 28′ Express. She boasts a very spacious cockpit for the crew to move around and dance with the storied monsters of the sea. She is powered by twin Yanmar diesel engines and offers a very comfortable ride, in even the more “nautical” conditions. We mainly reserve this boat for statewater fishing trips, Booze Cruises, Dolphin cruises, or Sunset cruising. We can book this boat for your crew on offshore adventures, just contact us for pricing!

RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
Two casts later I landed the 10.12, which was just shy of my PB. Needless to say this amount of action in that short amount of time got the adrenaline pumping faster than a fist full of ones in an establishment of questionable character…
"10 pounds or bust” it surely was. My brother landed his PB at 10 lbs 7 oz. Mine came it at 8 lbs 14 oz and Lisa weighed in at 8 lbs 4 oz, each of us hitting a new record. I can’t recommend Jay highly enough. Not only was he an awesome guy to spend the day with, but his knowledge of the lake and commitment to keeping us on the fish was the best I’ve seen.
After adding up the days weights my brother also has his first individual forty pound bag at 44 lbs…
A dream trip to say the least. At least for us Ohio boys. Yes, Jay fished with us at our request. He wanted to tie my break off back on for me and I refused. Thats the type of guide he is. He is no longer a guide to us,he’s a friend.
Definitely our best day of bass fishing ever!
Great two days on Lake Falcon with Jay. Now I have been bass fishing since I was six and I had one of my best times fishing with Mike and Jay. When you think your a good fisherman go on a trip with Jay and you will learn so much and have a fantastic time. One thing that I have learned over the years from full time guides is that you really need to follow their lead and use the lures , rods and reel and line that is suggested. Im a Lake Fork die hard and this trip made me a better fisherperson and learned to be be persistant and stick to what works and dont experiment with stuff that is not producing on a particular lake.
My friends and I flew down from Michigan to fulfill the dream of fishing for trophy bass on the famed Falcon Lake. Lots of time and energy went into planning this trip, and, in the process, we decided to book 4 days with local guide, Jay Greishaw. Of all the decisions we made, that turned out to be our best. From the beginning, Jay was personable, professional, and (most importantly) knowledgeable... All three of us caught personal bests. We caught 119 bass and boated lots of big fish, including our best five of 10.10lbs, 9.0lbs, 8.8lbs, 8.4lbs, and 8.4lbs. Jay made this the bass fishing trip of a lifetime for us (which is saying a lot for guys who have Lake St. Clair in their backyard). Whoever thought I’d see the day when we were actually saying, “Oh, it’s just another five-pounder…”?
