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.

"8 HR Off ShoreTrip"

Michael Hodina fished with 3G Fishing Charters on July 22, 2019

Great Trip, got right on the fish. Weather put us in early but we had limited out on Snapper and had two nice Kings!. Captain Kyle was pleasant, worked hard and knows his stuff!

"Offshore trip with Captain Shannon "

Justin Stephens fished with Galveston Offshore on July 17, 2017

By far the best, offshore fishing experience I've ever had. We limited out on Red Snapper 12+ lbs in no time at all. We trolled for some king and caught are fair share of kingfish, Jack Crevalle. We finished off our trip with catching a monster 55" 44 lb Ling. Was an amazing fishing experience. Thanks again Captain Shannon.
