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!
