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.

What People Are Saying About Snapper (Red) Fishing in Galveston

"10 hour deep sea trip"

Stormy Soupart fished with Kapt. Keepers Charters on June 15, 2019

We had an amazing time with captain Bob and Cory, we went on trip for our anniversary..we caught our limit on red snapper and king mackeral, I also caught a little bull shark and a 7 foot long hammerhead shark. We had a blast and I would highly recommend this fishing charter, I know we will use them again, maybe every anniversary :)

"June fishing trip"

Ronald Pizzi fished with Galveston Sea Ventures on June 10, 2019

The captain and first mate were outstanding! Pit us on the fish right away, Tanner worked his butt off keeping us baited up and bringing the fish we cought on board, we limited on red snapper got some gulf trout! The best was trolling and landing some nice kings! Thank you captain Shane and 1st mate Tanner for a great experience! We will be back for another trip!

"20m near shore"

Miguel Guerrero fished with Circle H Outfitters - Catch Share on June 11, 2019

Captian Scott has the science down. Very knowledgeable. We were hoping for snapper but he was able to explain they were about 50 miles out due to all the fresh water in the gulf. He put us on some nice fish and we all enjoyed this trip. PS his contender is top of the line!! See ya next time captain!
