Top Fishing Charters in Bolivar Peninsula


Bolivar Peninsula, a 20-mile-long stretch of Texan land, is an inshore angler’s paradise. Nestled on the banks of Galveston Bay, looking out onto the Gulf of Mexico, it offers some of the best fishing opportunities in the area. A Bolivar Peninsula fishing trip will leave you wanting more, and luckily, there’s always more fish to catch in these rich waters.

The shallow waters of the bay are a sanctuary for prized inshore game fish. You can expect to reel in Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder, as well as Sheepshead and Black Drum. A half day trip is normally enough time to find some nice specimens, and it will allow you to take your whole family on a fun adventure.

Are you looking for a bigger adrenaline rush? The deep waters of the Gulf are calling your name. Head out to the reefs for some big Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack, or go further offshore to cast a line for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, and many more. A full day trip, or an extended full day, would be your best option if your interests lie in the Gulf.

When it comes to finding a charter, that’s a piece of cake. You’ll find them dotted all along the Bolivar Peninsula, so just head out to the nearest dock and choose. Galveston and Texas City are nearby alternatives with an even wider array of options.

Rules & Regulations

Everyone age 17 and above looking to do some fishing in the area is required to buy a Texas fishing license. You’ll need to buy one regardless of whether you’re heading out on your own or on a fishing charter.

January
You can usually expect lots of wind and rain at the beginning of the year. But if the rain doesn’t mess with your plans, you’ll have a great time targeting Redfish and Trout.
February
Go near the jetties and target Sheepshead and Black Drum. Redfish and Speckled Trout are targets at this time of the year.
March
In March, Black Drum reach their peak season. If you’re more interested in the Gulf species, Mackerel start to show in higher numbers.
April
As the water becomes warmer, Speckled Trout start their spawning season. If you’re up for an offshore trip to the Gulf, Mahi Mahi is a great fish to target!
May
Head out to the jetties and target Sharks! They increase in number even more in June and you can catch Hammerhead, Blacktip, or Tiger Shark.
June
With summer comes Red Snapper season! Nearshore trips are great and you can catch Cobia, Kingfish, and Sharks.
July
As there’s less Flounder than usual, the best action is in deeper waters. Move closer to Galveston or head out straight to the Gulf.
August
In August, the peak season for Speckled Trout starts. On top of that, Redfish begin to spawn at the end of the month. Fishing in the bay is amazing!
September
Flounder gigging gets much better in fall, so try out a night adventure with a guide. The fish migrate toward the back of the bay.
October
The bay is full of Redfish and Speckled Trout. Flounder peak season is starting, so this is the best time to go after the Big Three.
November
Redfish and Flounder are the best choice for your trip. There’s not a lot of action in the Gulf, so staying in the bay is your best option.
December
While this is a slow month for most fish species, the Big Three still hold their numbers and make the trip worth the effort. Dress in layers, as it’s cold and windy.
