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
Be Safe and Watch The Sky
