January

This is a great time to go after Sheepshead, but Speckled Trout and Redfish are still biting. As temperatures get low, other species tend to quiet down.

February

If you’re looking for a winter fishing adventure in San Antonio Bay, prepare for a fight. Sheepshead are biting, along with Redfish and Speckled Trout.

March

With spring slowly coming to the bay, March is a great time to head out in search of big Redfish and Speckled Trout. The Flounder bite is good too.

April

In April, the best species to go after are Black Drum. Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, and Flounder are also biting hot.

May

This is when you’ll get the chance to go after prized Tarpon. Spanish Mackerel is still biting as well, along with Redfish and Trout.

June

With summer on the doorstep, you’ll find the fishing tends to heat up! Go after the Texas Trio – catch the biggest Redfish, Flounder, and Trout.

July

The fishing season is in full swing, and San Antonio Bay is brimming with fish. Flounder, Redfish, Trout, and Black Drum are all in the cards.

August

August is the warmest month in the bay, and it’s an excellent time to go after species like Tarpon, Redfish, and Speckled Trout.

I am not knowledgeable enough to offer any meaningful advice. But I suppose everybody knows that it is just too hot to fish during the middle of the day in August. A morning or late afternoon trip would be more pleasant.

Was pretty good, the captain knew what he was doing. Was a good overall experience. I got sick near the middle unfortunately and we had to cut it short, but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience being on a boat for a few hours. Just make sure to bring your sea sickness meds just in case.

Excellent gear, phenomenal crew, great boat, fantastic service. I have fished offshore on the Texas coast a lot, especially during snapper season, and I will say hands down Trace and Jason put us on the best limit of big snapper we have ever caught. Great trip all around. PB snapper for everyone on the boat! I highly recommend these guys to anyone. We will be back. Thanks again Trace and Jason, if y’all are ever in Montana look us up!

Captain Alex made an audible on the trip the day before to make sure we had the best experience and caught tons of fish. He took us to Baffin Bay even though we had originally signed up for a Port A trip. It was a great call and we caught the limit in no time. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and a great guide!
