Redfish Fishing in Galveston

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.

Had a great day doing Cobia jigging on some offshore buoys. Caught and released 4 then tried for Redfish at the jetties but caught none. Overall friendly crew and good day on the water! Captain Mike and deckhand Travis were helpful and professional throughout the trip.

"Half day trip "

Jeffery Jones fished with Galveston Trophy Charters on July 16, 2019

Capt Mike made the trip very enjoyable. Caught 14 trout. Capt Mike worked hard to get us a Redfish but unfortunately they weren’t biting today. Will definitely give Galveston Trophy Charters another try

"Half Day Trip with Capt Mike"

Cathy Gooch fished with Line Check Charters on September 7, 2018

Out of all my fishing charters I have been on, this was by far, my favorite! He put us on the fish, first try. Oit of six people, four got a Redfish large enough to have to tag. And we kept getting hits the whole time. Will definitely call him again for another day out in the bay.

"Half day wading trip"

Jerry Cardwell fished with Texas Premier Guide Services - Galveston on July 26, 2018

Had a great time, our Capt (Tyler) put us on Redfish on the first stop of the day. I had a son in law and 11 year old grandson that had never fished much and Capt Tyler was so great helping them. Caught redfish and trout. I would recommend this charter to everyone, so a great and wonderful trip. Thank y’all so much and I will be using you again.
