Fish with Bay Fishing Adventures any time of year! Located in Galveston Bay, this charter offers year-round fishing season in one of the most diverse spots on the entire gulf coast. Captain Chris Howard is a local who spent years fishing in the area and studying fishing patterns. Having a reliable guide is one of the crucial things to have a successful day on the water.

Your trip will take place on a 22’ Blue Wave center console. This vessel accommodates up to 4 guests and offers plenty of seating space. Powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine, the boat will give you a safe and smooth ride to your fishing spot. You’ll also find a swim ladder for better wading.

Your main fish targets will be Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder but you can also catch Black Drum, Sheepshead, Tripletail, and Whiting. You’ll explore inshore and nearshore waters of the bay and your catch can depend on the season you’re visiting. You can keep the catch and the captain will clean it and bag it for you free of charge.

The captain will cover your fishing equipment and bait but you can always bring yours if you prefer. Make sure to purchase your fishing license on time and bring some snacks and drinks for the day. There’s a cooler on the boat, so everything will stay cool and fresh.

Bay Fishing Adventures is suitable for anglers of all skill levels, including complete novices. You already have a great guide, so you only need a bit of patience and luck. A trip with Captain Chris is only a few clicks away.
