Galveston Speckled Trout

Galveston Boy Catches Shark!

Not much scares 9-year-old Hunter Stevens. In fact, coming face-to-face with a shark is one of his obsessions. “I know that they aren’t mean,” Hunter said. “I know that they won’t hurt you unless you do something bad to them.” On his latest fishing trip with his dad, Kevin Stevens, in a kayak off the coast of Galveston Island, Hunter set…

Currents

I had Pete and his 12 year old son Benny for an afternoon trip yesterday.  I knew going into the trip, that the bite would likely be tough because of the slack tide.  The tides were very high, and very, very little current moving.  The incoming tide in the morning was the time to be fishing, but sometimes you just…

Flounder Gigging Report

Last week the Galveston weather couldn’t seem to make up it’s mind.  We had a couple days that seemed like we were in the middle of May with warm conditions, then the next thing I know it is 42 degrees after one of my gigging trips!  The high southerly winds that we had before the northern front came thru pushed all the water…
