  • Galveston Bay TEXAS

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to inform all of you that we will be back on the water on a regular basis in 2-3 weeks. We are still running a few trips with mixed success, but for the most part we are doing some work with our sponsors and some minor boat repairs. We do have some shows & seminars coming up in Feb. & Mar. You can check http://www.galveston-fishing.com/gal...g-reports.html for those dates. With the number of keeper & oversized redfish and the ABUNDANCE of 14-16 in. speckled trout we caught in 2009, I really think 2010 will be an excellent year for fishing. Our fish in the Galveston Bay system are very healthy & all those undersized trout will be perfect keepers this Spring & Summer! Well hopefully the next time you read my post it will be a good fishing report from Galveston Bay. Until next time, see you on the water.

    Galveston Bay Fishing Report 2-10-10

    Well it is already Feb. and Spring is coming up. Spring is consistently a great time to fish, getting the kids out for a spring break trip is always a good idea. Nothing is better than seeing a huge smile on a kids face after a great day of fishing. March is also a great time for catching speckled trout and from what I have experienced and have been told by my peers, fishing in Spring and Summer has been outstanding after a very cold winter. So I look forward to some awesome fishing in the next couple of months! Don't worry about a fish kill, most of the fish that has been killed is bait fish and trash fish. Now I'm sure some quality fish have also been effected, but not to a point that it should have any negative effect on future fishing. I haven't been on the water too much lately, due to minor boat repairs, sponsor events and some really cold and windy weather. I have been talking to some guides that have been having some great days on the water and catching some big trout (6-8 pound trout). When the weather has been decent, the fish are being caught. Now as far as location protected areas far north and some areas in West bay have been the best. Most of the same hot spots that people fish every winter. Soft plastics and live shrimp under a cork (if you can find it) has produced the best results. Waders are using top water baits to catch most of those big trout. When I get on the water on a regular basis in about 2 weeks, I will post a more informational report. Well until next time, see you on the water.

      Galveston Bay TX Fishing Report 3-20-10

      OK it is Spring and we have been on the water for about 2 weeks doing our Spring Break Trips or Family Fun Trips. Every year during March and April we offer discounted trips for families or spring breakers because March and April are consistently windy months and the trout bite is not as good as the summer and fall months. We can still fish for trout, but traditionally these spring break trips are great for the kids or individuals that just want to get their line pulled. Usually on these trips you can also fill up an ice chest with whiting, bull croaker, sand trout and puppy drum. You can also catch redfish, sheephead, and oversized drum on these trips. So you can see how these trips are so popular and more and more people every year are booking these fishing trips. Now as for fishing it has been slow to ok all over our bay system. The guides that are strictly fishing for speckled trout have not had a consistent bite. I'm sure some guides are catching tout here and there, but the trout bite has been very though from all the reports I have gotten. Fishing for trout late in the afternoon has produced the best results. The problem this past week is we have had a strong outgoing tide and the north and northwest winds have made it even worse. Of course when you have very low tides and no good water the fishing suffers. Good news is that the tide has changed and we had a very strong incoming tide yesterday and fishing should improved. As the water continues to get warmer and we get quality water into our bays, fishing for trout and all other species should be excellent. I will be posting a report every 2 weeks so check back for the updates. We will continue to offer our discounted trips until the end of April and we will also be fishing for speckled trout. Until next time, see you on the water.

        Galveston TX Fishing Report 4-08-10

        To everyone that has read my reports in the past, you know my favorite line is "With good weather conditions brings good fishing." Well we have had our consistent WINDY March and April! I usually complain about the wind in my reports every Spring, but I have gotten so use to it that there is no need. ! My brother Capt. Steven and I have started running our Spring Break and Family Fun Trips during these months to avoid having to cancel so many trout trips. It has been good for our customers and for us. These trips can be really fun for the kids or for anglers that want to catch bigger fish. We will start running some trout only trips in the next few weeks, so check back for those reports. Overall fishing the Jetties has been really productive for us over the past two weeks. (excluding the windy days) We are still catching redfish, sheep head, puppy drum and oversized drum on these trips. We are using live crab for bait for the drum, but they are hard to come by because of the high demand right now. You can also use white squid or live crawfish to catch these oversized drum. As for trout fishing I have been hearing that the trout are starting to show up more and more as the water continually warms. The trout should start to school up soon and that will produce better and more consistent numbers. From what I have heard, the bays are also full of healthy redfish. I have been catching a lot of 17-19 inch redfish on my trips with a few keepers mixed in. The lower Galveston Bay System including West Bay is holding a lot of these same redfish. (just undersized) When the wind starts to subside in the next few weeks, (hopefully) I look for the trout reports to be better. We will be fishing some different areas this next week and fishing for speckled trout, so check back in two weeks! For Houston and the surrounding area residents, I am going to start giving some fishing seminars at Bass Pro Shops Pearland location and possible some Academy locations on Saturdays in the next month and through Summer. I will be there to answer any questions you have about saltwater fishing and I will also be giving away some CastAway Products. I will give you some dates and more information on my next report. Until next time, see you on the water.
