Our Galveston Fishing Guides have been on a roll lately with some awesome catches when others are showing up to the docks empty handed. Our Fishing Charters in Galveston are seeing 'Speck -Tackler' success for Speckled Trout and Redfish. This past week, our Kid Friendly Galveston Fishing Charters put smiles on Kids faces with many, many fish bowing up their fishing poles!
With water temperatures fluctuating between 71° and 80° we are entering the peak spawning cycles for Speckled Trout. The magic number of 68° trigger the the spawn, and continues as water temperatures increase throughout the summer. Females may spawn every 7 to 14 days from April thru September. Moon cycles do affect spawning, and near full or full moons are peak times.
With the amount of rainfall the Galveston Coast experienced in April and into May, the freshwater runoff affected many of our Galveston estuaries. The salitnity levels in the back lakes and Bays of Galveston are returning and redfish and speckled trout are making their way back to these estuaries. Not all of our areas are back to normal, but each day without rain we are seeing salinity levels rise. The high southerly flow of winds we had the last week, also pushes the salty waters of the Gulf of Mexico into our bays and help the salinity levels return.
The Galveston Fishing Forecast is looking extremely good for Summer 2015. As we are approaching the middle of May, we have seen some incredible fishing already in the back lakes, bays and passes. With water temperatures rising along the surf - Sharks have already made their way here, and we will have an excellent summer for Shark Fishing in Galveston.
