Snapper (Red) Fishing in Galveston

Galveston is emerging as the runner up in Gulf Red Snapper fishing hotspots, with large fish available to target during summer in nearshore state waters (up to 10.35 miles out) at depths of around 120ft and more. Federal waters can be fished recreationally in June, but only for a short time frame (about 10 days, depending on the annual regulations).
 
During colder months, Snappers move farther out, at least 20 miles offshore, effectively disabling recreational angling from taking place. However, during this time, a number of catch share programs are available to sportfishers. These are offered by commercial fishermen as alternatives that allow going on trips and catching Red Snapper for free, with the option of purchasing fish from the landings afterwards.

The captain is a really great guy. He put us on the fish and gave my son a quick lesson on how to catch flounder which was his first time flounder fishing. I would recommend him anytime.
