Summer 2021 Fishing is in its final weeks, and it has been a great summer fishing in both Galveston and Freeport, Texas.  Our Galveston Bay Fishing Charters are catching good numbers of speckled trout, redfish, mackerel, sheepshead, sharks and more.  Water temperatures are in the upper 80’s and fishing along the Galveston Jetties and Beachfront has been very good. 

Most of the time we are using live shrimp freelined along the rocks or live shrimp under a popping cork in the bays.  After the harsh freeze we experienced this past February, we are extremely excited to see the great catches this summer.  Galveston Bay is in great shape and our fishery is doing very, very well.

As we enter mid-August, I get excited thinking about the upcoming Fall Fishing and am anxiously waiting for that first cool front that will get things moving in another direction.  September is a great month for redfish both in the back lakes for the slot reds and along the jetties, passes and beachfront for the Giant Bull Reds that will be moving in for their annual spawning activities. 

We will be fishing for these Red Dragons in both Galveston and Freeport, Texas.  Also, if you need a place to stay while fishing out of Freeport – check out Bay’s Landing for a great night’s rest and wake up and walk downstairs to catch the boat!

Our Deep-Sea Fishing Charters are still running and will be finishing up by September 1.  We had a great Texas Red Snapper Season and lots of nice fish hit the deck. 

Also, we caught good numbers of kings and some wahoo!  Earlier in the season we were able to catch great size snaps within 30 miles, but as the season moved along – we had to venture further to get the Big Ones!   

Give us a call at 409-739-8526 to book your Fall Fishing Adventure in Galveston or Freeport, Texas.  With affordable waterfront lodging – make it a weekend mini vacation and get hooked up on some amazing Texas Size Fish!
