If you’re looking for an action-packed experience, a San Luis Pass fishing adventure is right up your alley! This area, where the rich waters of Galveston Bay meet the mighty Gulf of Mexico, is a unique fishery that’s bound to leave you breathless. Water flows in and out of this skinny passage, bringing with it a variety of fish species you'll be able to target.

When it comes to the fish, there’s hardly a more unique spot in the area. You’ll find all the inshore stars, including the famous Texas trifecta of Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Black Drum, Sheepshead, Tarpon, Mackerel, Sharks… whatever side of the pass you’re on, these fish are all in the cards!

Depending on where you’re heading out of, you can book either a half day or a full day trip. If you’re looking for a family trip you can take your kids on, consider booking a half day. The more experienced anglers might enjoy a bit more time on the water, and heading out on a full day trip is the best way to fill the bags.

You’ll find fishing charters in a variety of places around San Luis Pass. This includes Galveston Island, as well as Oyster Creek and Surfside. These spots have easy access to both the Gulf's waters and Galveston Bay, so you can easily cast a line on either side of the pass.

Rules & Regulations

When it comes to regulations, San Luis Pass follows Texas state laws. This means that everyone age 17 or older is required to have a Texas fishing license, regardless of whether they’re heading out on a fishing charter or on their own.

January

Despite cooler water temperatures, you can still start your year off with a bang by heading to San Luis Pass, where you’ll find Bull Redfish and Speckled Trout making an appearance.

February

Visit the pass in late February, and you’ll be greeted by huge Black Drum! Redfish and Speck fishing remains strong, and you may encounter tasty Sheepshead, too.

March

The Black Drum run continues through the beginning of March, and huge swarms of Spanish Mackerel enter the pass from the Gulf. Head under the bridge to target the spring Specks that gather here. 

April

Spring has truly sprung, and with it come some world-famous Shark species! The waters of the Gulf push Bull, Tiger, Blacktip, Hammerhead Sharks, and more into the pass.

May

In the waters under the bridge, you’ll find Jack Crevalle, trophy-sized Trout, and huge Shark species lurking. The bay and Gulf sides of the pass are both plentiful, with Bull Redfish being a popular catch.

June

This month sees anglers from far and wide flocking to the pass to take advantage of the incredible Redfish population! The warm weather brings Tarpon, Shark species, trophy Specks, and plenty of other species, too.

July

The pass is brimming with world-famous fish from both the bay and the Gulf: Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, and more are all on offer. Bull Reds and trophy Trout are especially plentiful in the bay.

August

If you’re looking to fish the pass now, make sure you book well in advance – the warm weather and abundance of species on offer mean that charters are in high demand! Speckled Trout, Sharks, and more are on offer.

September

Temperatures start to drop, but the fishing stays hot! Redfish flock in high numbers to every part of Galveston’s bay system, which means you’ll find plenty of them caught in and around the pass.

October
It’s spawning season for Bull Redfish and Speckled Trout, so if you want to hook yourself some tasty table fare, this is the time to visit! These fish make homes between the sandbars of the pass in huge numbers.
November

If you want the waters to yourself, November is a great time to test your skills at San Luis Pass. Many of the Gulf’s species have moved on, but you’ll find huge Redfish and Speckled Trout in abundance.

December
There’s still time to end the year in the best way! Head to the pass and get ready to hook yourself some of the biggest Bull Redfish and trophy-sized Trout that this part of Texas has to offer.

It’s spring when I went, weather is never predictable and neither is fishing! Water was a little choppy on the way out. Fishing with the dolphins playing was a neat experience.

Talk to the captains and update yourself on what’s hot before going so you can get your target fish. If there’s not a target just come ready to fight huge sharks. It’s a major arm workout!!!

We had an excellent trip. Captain James put us right on top of the redfish first thing in the morning. We caught our limit within an hour. Went out further to try and get some snapper. No luck on snapper but we caught some catfish and sharks. Finished off the day catching and releasing more redfish. Overall we caught about 30 redfish between 20 and 30 lbs. Captain James was very personable, had great music and put us on some great fishing.

Overall great price and experience even though we didn't catch any fish to come home with (apparently it's not great fishing season in April). Comfortable boat with all the amenities we needed like a restroom and couch. Will come back again in the summer time when it's apparently peak season. Thanks again!

Captain Terry was excellent! The two of us were able to catch so many fish during our time. The keepers pictured were the best catch of the day brought in to the marina be cleaned 😊. We caught fish when other captains were surprised because their day wasn’t as good. Captain Terry took us to a few of his spots and we caught fish at every spot! He also contacted us to change our fishing date due to poor fishing after storms - which we were very thankful for. Thanks again for a great day fishing!

We did an afternoon trip with Captain Billy. The day started off slow and we didn’t really catch anything until 2 1/2 hours in. But, once we caught the first red fish, it was one after the other. We ended up with 4 red fish, 2 sand sharks, and almost one TIGER shark. Yes, you read that right. We reeled in a HUGE tiger shark, but the line broke close to the boat because we didn’t have shark rigging. It was insane! We had a super fun time! I definitely recommend this company.
