Redfish
  • Size 3 to 12lbs
  • Food Value Good
  • Game Qualities Good
  • Habitats Inshore, Nearshore, Flats, Backcountry

(Sciaenops ocellatus)

Redfish can be caught year-round in the Galveston Bay, but the best time will be from September until the end of fall months. They can be caught in waters as shallow as 6'' and schools are regularly comprised of fish from 20 up to 34''.

Sight casting is a good method to try, as the shallow waters will provide additional hints that the fish are there, such as skittish bait fish, popping shrimp, water boils etc. Great big bulls are not uncommon here either.

Let your Captain know exactly what you want when you board. If you want inshore for an hour or two and then shark for the rest, he’ll accommodate. Great trip!
