Summertime fishing is here, and it is a smorgasbord of fish to be caught.  Our Galveston Inshore Fishing Charters has been great along the Galveston Beachfront, jetties, and the back lakes and marshes.  There are many species of fish to be caught right now and throughout the summer.  Speckled trout, Redfish, Flounder, Spanish mackerel, pompano, sheepshead, drum, sharks and more are being caught inshore in Galveston, Texas. 

Our Galveston Fishing Guides are primarily using live natural baits on trips.  Live shrimp freelined along the jetty rocks is tough to beat for the specks and reds right now.  Also, the back lakes and marshes are holding good numbers of flounder, and Captain Ernest has been using soft plastics to targets the summertime flounder on our Galveston Bay Fishing Charters.

Offshore fishing has been great on the days that we are able to get out on the Big Pond.  Galveston Red Snapper Season is underway, and Captain Greg Verm Jr has consistently been giving some Big Snaps ice naps.  After clients get their limits of Red Snapper, Captain Greg Jr has been going after Kings, Cobia, and Mahi with success.  As weed lines make their way to our Texas Gulf Coast – we should see more mahi hitting the deck. 

This year we have more days than I can remember in a long time to catch and retain red snapper in Federal waters for charter for hire boats.  June 1st thru August 17th we can retain red snapper in Federal waters.  Also, this year marks the longest stretch to be able to retain amber-jack and red snapper as AJ season will open on August 1.  The first half of the month of August is going to be great, and we still have availability for our Galveston Deep Sea Fishing Charters.  Give us a call to get in on the action!  409-739-8526
