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.

I would reccomend to first timer fishers to take a fishing guide trip or go to a fishing pier and ask plenty of questions! Its the ocean, much different than fresh water. Its good to be informed!

We waited and booked when we knew the water and weather were good. Very kid friendly and we learned a lot about the fishing. I would book again. My boy will remember his big catch for the rest of his life.
