Baytown Fishing

Loaded with both natural shell reefs as well as a variety of manmade fish-holding features, the Baytown area is praised as one of the best all-round inshore fisheries this side of Texas. The opulent marshes and bayous of the Trinity Bay complex serve as an ideal backdrop for a wide range of seasonal quarry to flourish, ensuring both novice and veteran anglers alike have something to look forward to. Although each month brings something new and distinct to the sportfishing table, the area is primarily known for its prolific fall and winter seasons, dominated by everyone's favorite bruisers such as Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout. There's a myriad of ways one can go about exploiting the local waterways: wading the flats, working the game-laden pipe stands, wrecks and production wells, or just 'fishing the birds', as they often have a tendency of acting as personal fish finders to the patient Baytown angler. And while the winter Reds may certainly top the local fishing calendars, it would be unwise to make light of the summer bite either, when limiting on the likes of Flounder, Sand Trout, Croakers and many others is considered anything but uncommon!
