GALVESTON FISHING REPORTS

Hi everyone, I hope all is well. Thanks for folowing my galveston fishing reports blog. Right now my brother and I are still fishing at the jetties with great results. Within the next week or two, we will start fishing strictly for trout and reds. Weather is usually an issue during March & April for consistent trout fishing and this year has been pretty ugly so far. As a business, we need to put people on fish and going to the jetties and catching lots of fish is usually a more productive trip than targeting trout right now. The end of April and beginning of May is usually a good time to get on some trout consistently. I think this year is going to be an excellent year in all the bays. All this rain should push the specks out of the bayous, lakes, marshes and down river. These means there should be some nice schools of specks  on the mid bay reefs in all 3 main bays. As we start fishing for them, I will post some reports and pics right here. Some of the guides on the galveston bay fishing team have been catching some nice trout on some recent trips. And it should only be getting better as time goes on. When we start our trout trips, we will most likely be fishing some shorelines with a popping cork and live shrimp. The area will depend on where we find them. The south shoreline in East bay may be a good place to start. Or even up and down the shoreline from the causeway all the way to eagle point may be good. I will post a report once I'm on them. I want to say thanks to Phillip and all his family for their trip on Friday the 3rd, Capt. John and I had fun with all of you. Also thanks to Jessica for your 2 boat party with Capt. Charles and me. Everyone was great and glad we got the trip in before it rained. Until next time, see you on the water.

GALVESTON BAY FISHING REPORT

Hi everyone, I hope you all are catching some fish. I haven't posted any reports on here lately because we had some motor issues. We have a new 2015 Suzuki 250hp on now so no more issues. If you want to get some up to date Galveston Bay fishing reports, just follow this blog & our Facebook page. From here on out I will post up date reports and pics. As for fishing right now, we have been fishing at the jetties. This time of the year we get Spring Breakers and families wanting to fish. These anglers usually want the best action available and the jetties produce great action this time of the year. We have been free shrimping close to the rocks catching limits of sheephead, some nice reds and a few puppy drum. We have been catching legal sized fish along with some over sized ones. We have had some action packed days on the water over the past week. As for speckled trout fishing, I have received a few good reports, but nothing consistent enough yet. There are some trout being caught, but it seems like you have to get a great weather day and move around a lot until you find them. It will get better as the water temp keeps rising and we get away from these fronts. As May approaches, the trout fishing should be outstanding. All the rains recently should push those specks out of the rivers, marshes, back lakes and bayous. This will be excellent for the mid bay reefs and even the shorelines. Using live shrimp under a cork about a foot or two off the bottom will be our tactic. Hope you continue to follow us here and hope you enjoy the Galveston fishing reports. Until next time, see you on the water.

GALVESTON BAY FISHING REPORT

Hi everyone, hope you are not too cold! I guess mother nature wanted to remind us that Winter isn't over. Pretty much the next 3-4 days are suppose to have lows in the 30's & 40's. This will effect the fishing through out the Galveston Bay Complex. It is probably going to be early March until the fishing becomes consistent. The jetties should start producing & the trout fishing in the bays should get right too. Fish of all species will start migrating in from the Gulf once the water warms up a bit. I will be mainly be fishing the jetties with families & kids and target some speckled trout in West Bay when it warms up. Live shrimp for both types of fishing will be my bait of choice. Fishing the shorelines with a popping cork or soft plastics is usually the best method this time of year. The specks & reds will feed in the shallows near the shorelines when the sun warms it up during the morning. Always look for nervous bait or slicks and key on those areas. Wading or drifting will work. When i get back out, I will post Galveston Bay Fishing reports & Galveston Fishing pictures on here on a regular basis. Until next time, see you on the water.

Galveston Fishing and Texas Duck Hunting

Galveston Bay FishingWell it's been a while for one my fishing reports and I apologize it's been a busy summer. As many know it wasn't a typical summer, we had to work for what we caught but I'm seeing a change and it's for the better. I'll be bay fishing thru the end of August, take a short break for opening of Dove Season Sept. 1st and be back on the water till Sept. 10th and then we'll be running Teal Hunts. When October rolls in I'll be back on the bay running bay fishing trips steady till the end of October. For Nov thru Jan 2015 it's Duck Hunting Trips and Bay Fishing Trips depending on what's on the books. I still have some spots open for Teal Hunts and Teal/Dove Hunt Combos but plan ahead Teal Hunts are $175 pp and Teal/Dove Hunts are $250 pp with a 4 person min. I don't mix parties, all hunts are Fully Guided with Trained Retrievers and you don't wade mud on our hunts or put out decoy, relax and enjoy your hunt.  

Galveston Fishing ReportI've included a few photos from the last couple weeks of fishing, the first was before the rains started in and the other two are trips cut short due to rain. We are catching numbers but we're having to sort thru to keep the legals but it's been steady action and makes the trip go by fast, it's almost like a fall bite and yes we've been working some shorelines also which is why I said it's almost like a fall bite. I look for us to have a Great Fall Bite from what I'm seeing as we wind down the summer.

Galveston Duck HutningPlan ahead for your Bay Fishing Trips and Teal or Duck Hunting Trip, It's just Myself and Brian and I believe in rotating blinds to give the ducks a rest, We're not worried about the number of hunts we run, we believe in quality hunts, we can control it better than the weather.

Galveston Fishing TripsI have a little more time and be doing more reports as before for both Bay Fishing and our Duck Hunts and what we're seeing. You can always keep up to date on our Facebook pages for Bay Fishing check out Galveston Bay Fishing and for our hunting Texas Coastal Hunting. I also now have an App you can down load it at Capt. Davids App. I'll have reports and Specials for only those with the app. Discounted Bay Fishing Trips and Duck  and Hog Hunts so Download and Save and check it daily.

Until Next Time, Be Safe

Galveston Fishing, Has Spring Sprung.

Well, has Spring Sprung yet, I doubt it but it's looking better. Winds are still a factor but at least during this week they moved to more of a south or southeast. We did get it to drop a little but as of today, sunday, it went back up. We do have a break Monday and Tuesday before another front is to hit but a quick turn around is predicted so we should be back on the water by Friday or hope to.

I did see some better catches come in Saturday and Sunday just die to the fact you could get off the shoreline. The waders ares still doing it right with some nice catches this last week and should continue thru the end of the month from what I'm seeing. The good part is the reefs are lighting up as I said before so drifting is paying off. 

Areas to check out like Frenchy's, Little Hanna's, Peppers and around Big Hanna's, as for wading it would be the Hog Pens, maybe Fat Rat and around Yates and Big Pasture or around Black's. It's more of a play the wind sometimes than where you want to go.

I've got 1 boat left open starting next Sunday thru Wednesday May 18th -20th and 2 boats open Friday May 23rd and then we're booked thru Memorial Day Weekend. I have May 27th and 28th open a Tuesday and Wednesday and 1 boat left open for the AADE Tournament May 30th.

On another note, Fields are looking good for Duck Season, rice is in or almost in and water is being pumped, As always Teal season kicks it all off in September and we'll be ready, give us a call to reserve a spot for your Guided Teal Hunt, we'll be hunting the Brookshire, Sealy, Eagle Lake, Garwood area. Guided Teal Hunts are $175 and parties of 4 have their own blind.

Keep up to date on our Fishing Facebook page or our Duck Hunting Facebook page for what's going on and when.

As for bait, Stingaree Marina is holding live shrimp and some croaker, they have bagged and bulk ice and gas on the water along with 2 boat ramps and plenty of trailer parking. The cleaning table is covered and once cleaned you can take your catch in and have'm cooked up, doesn't get any fresher than that. They've also added a new deck to relax on with an outdoors Palapa Bar once you get off the water and it all over looks East Galveston Bay. Keep up to date with Stingaree specials and the live music on their Facebook page.

Until Next Week

Galveston Fishing and Spring Time

We'll we finally got the break we needed and certain areas showed improvements Saturday, We have a front hitting midweek but it looks like we should see a turn around for the weekend and be back on the water. With May hitting us soon it's just a matter of getting out to the shell and picking up on them. As always this time of year weather plays a big roll on where we can fish so we just have to wait our turn.

Galveston Bay Fishing ChartersAs for timing I think we're running a little behind due to the winter lingering on but with warmer temperatures we could see a quick catch up. We're starting to see trout show up in areas like Deep Reef, Frenchys and I haven't checked but I would think Little Hannas should start producing soon. I did see live bait in our boat do better than plastics on Saturday working the south shoreline, as you can see from the picture from 4/26/14 it was  good morning trip and back before noon.  Mike and Britney put some nice trout in the box working pop-n-corks and the trout nailed them. Way to go Mike and Britney hope to see you back this summer.

Once the front passes towards the end of the week we'll be back at it again, I do have one boat left for this Friday and the weekend if you want to make it down for some spring fishing, things are warming up.

Stingaree is holding live shrimp and with 2 boats working they shoudl be able to keep up, croaker should be coming soon with us coming into May. It's just when will the trout decide they want them. They still have planty of trailer parking and 2 boat ramps working. Remember they also ahve gas on the water and a covered cleaning table for your catch. Nothing better than cleaning your catch and having Stingaree cook them fresh. Another thing I wanted to let everyone know is parking at Stingaree is free to everyone, no matter if your eating or catching a boat to do a day of fishing. They also have a nice deck know running the whole bulkhead with table to enjoy the bay while you having a cold drink.

Well until next week

Waiting On The Weather For Galveston Bay Fishing

I have to start off with this picture of this Big Ugly or Bull Red, right before this football player hooked up to it he was bragging about the shape he was in, well it didn’t take long for him to realize this Big One was gonna wear him down. He put up a great fight and did get him to the boat where we did the photos and he was released to fight again.

Well as most read this “Spring Break” is over for the kids and college students, traffic on the commute to work and home will pick up and most have Easter to look forward to for the next Big Break from work and schools. In the back of our minds we’re all hoping the weather will be turned around by then and we’ll enjoy our weekends with a more conventional weather pattern we all have come to enjoy….A Warm Weather and a Pattern.

We’ve started hitting the water as weather allows and for those wanting to fish, best thing is pick your date and make plans, if we’re blessed with a front or bad weather which would make a trip unproductive or unsafe we’ve got plenty of time to resch. You’re fishing trip.

For the days we’re able to hit the water it’s been mixed bags, waders are picking up some nice trout and a few Reds and Flounder depending on location of wade, those in the boat working shorelines or marsh drains are picking up a mixed bag of Reds, Flounder and a few Trout. Remember we do have a Spring Flounder Run, a lot of undersized but we’ve had them up to 18” which make for a great dinner.

I look for changes with the little patches of good weather we should be seeing the rest of the month. We are lucky that we can fish the south shoreline, and marsh this time of year when the open bay may be a little rough as long as we have water in the bay. Don’t let the weather dampen your plans for fishing in a week or two we could be seeing a whole new picture when you trip arrives. Weekends are booking up with those planning ahead and rolling the dice, don’t wait till the last minute.

For those that have Facebook keep up to date with what we’re seeing and what’s going on. Check out the GalvestonBayFishing.com Facebook Page give us a like and keep up to date, We’re also working with Stingaree Marina which now has their own Facebook Page, they will be posting info on weather, Live Bait they are holding and anything that will help the fisherman. They have reworked their Bait tanks over the winter and now have 2 shrimp boats working the bay to keep the tanks full for customers. Great dock space, Gas on the water, Live Bait, Snacks, Cold Drinks, a covered cleaning table, and a restaurant that will cook your catch once you clean it, you can’t beat a marina for location or amenities on the Galveston Bay Complex. They are opening at 6am for now and that will change to earlier as time changes.

Since we’re on the water now weekly if not daily check back and we’ll have weekly reports up here and daily reports and info on our Facebook page.

Until Next Week

Galveston Bay Fishing, March and Spring Break in Texas

We’ll we’ve passed the halfway mark on February and we’re heading down the back stretch into March. As of March 1st we won’t have much time as Madi Gras is on March 1st for everyone and Spring Break fallows right behind. Now’s the time to make plans for Galveston Bay Fishing for this Spring. I’ll be picking up the Haynie from Tracker Marine in Beaumont on Tuesday after having them do some maintance work and be heading for the bay as long as the weather hold this week. I look forward to hitting the bay after a long winter. I've posted a new short Fishing Video to view it Click Here.

I mentioned Tracker Marine above, I was looking for a dealer to start doing all the maintance and any repairs I would need this coming year. I went in and talked to Sam the service writer and head of the shop and was impressed. They also didn’t beat around the test tank any also. I had an injector go out and that made the whole motor shut down. Not knowing how it works they got the problem located, ordered the part and had it all done in a minimal amount of time and cost since my warranty had run out. I can say they have my business from here on out when it comes to motor work close by. If you need standard maintance or heavy work I have faith in them and would recommend them to anyone.

Ok as for the fishing waders are picking up some nice stringers from what I’ve seen and reports I’ve got. For those needing to stay in the boat I’d head to the marsh draines and work some of the shorelines towards the back of the bay for Stingaree Cut to the east. Key in on active bait. Work it slow and fallow the guts and bait lines. I’ll have more once I hit the water this week and next weekend.

Stingaree News, The Stingaree Restaurant is open Wednesday-Sunday, opening at 11am. With specials daily, you can’t beat the food or view overlooking the Intercoastal and East Galveston Bay. Stingaree Marina has been open as the weather allows and yes they have Gas on the water along with 2 boat ramps and plenty of parking, both dock space and trailer parking. You can’t beat the “You Hook’m We Cook’m”. Get them fried, Grilled or Pecan Crusted, they’ll all melt in your mouth you can’t beat fresh. Clean them on the deck take them inside and have them cooked, you can’t beat it. As for DownUnder it will be opening up March 1 2014, they also have a new Facebook Page with the live music for this year and it will be updated as the bands are booked.

With the boat back and being on the water with better weather I will be updating the fishing report every Sunday evening for the remainder of the year. If you have any questions or need to spend a day on  the bay give us a call. I have updated the webite for this year and updated the waterfowl section also for the coming season this fall. You can always keep up to date on our fishing Facebook Page.

Time To Get Things Ready For Galveston Bay Fishing

With Duck Season over by the time most read this, a few weekends of “Honey Does” and everyone will be ready to start looking towards the Galveston Bay for fishing. With the artic front and warmer days that fallow, you can still find some primetime fishing. Think mud, guts and afternoons once the sun has been up for a while till we see some warmer weather.

With Duck Season over, it’s all about the bay now, standard boat mant., rods and reels checked, plastics being restocked, hard baits rehooked and a deep breath of the cool morning gets it all going again. With the cooler weather we’ve had I look for a great “Spring Time Bite” things are looking up for Febuary if we get a little warming trend. Bookings are coming in ahead of last year so don’t wait make plans now for the end of February, March, and April. By the first of May you need to have summer fishing dates picked out and get your dates pinned down. Before you know it we’ll be celebrating July 4th.

As for this time of year, I like the back end of East Bay from around the Sun Oil Cut back to Oyster Bayou along the south and north shoreline guts coming out of the marsh can pay off with an out-going tide, it’s worked in years past and should be a good go to from now thru the start of spring. Plastics are the go to or slow sinkers and for those that need live bait we have Gulp which has worked great for us on a pop-n-cork in the spring and fall.

Stingaree News, The Stingaree Restaurant is open Wednesday-Sunday, opening at 11am. With specials daily you can’t beat the food or view overlooking the Intercoastal and East Galveston Bay. They have Oysters Jubalee daily and All You Can Eat on Wednesday and Sunday, if you haven’t tried it and are an Oyster Lover you gotta try it. Stingaree Marina has been open as the weather allows and yes they have Gas on the water along with 2 boat ramps and plenty of parking, both dock space and trailer parking. You can’t beat the “You Hook’m We Cook’m”. Get them fried, Grilled or Pecan Crusted, they’ll all melt in your mouth you can’t beat frsh. Clean them on the deck take them inside and have them cooked, you can’t beat it. As for DownUnder it will be opening up March 1 2014, they also have a new facebook page with the live music for this year and it will be updated as the bands are booked.

Looks like we have another icy cold one to hit Tuesday…. Be save and stay at home if you can…. Hopefully these will end soon.
