Come discover it for yourself!
 

What to Expect

Galveston’s most famous Speckled Trout fishery is Galveston Bay, the perfect starting point for newbies and experienced fishermen alike. 
 
If you’re new to angling, opt for a half day trip exploring the bay’s shoreline waters and grassy flats. You won’t have to travel for long before you start fishing, making this the perfect option for families with little ones. More experienced anglers should head to the West Bay, connected to the Gulf of Mexico by the San Luis Pass. These waters are fast-moving and offer trophy-Trout fishing action. Give yourself a real battle and use light tackle!
 
If you’re more of an open water fisherman, Galveston also provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Charter captains will have you cruising inshore waters for Speckled Trout, with spots around the jetties and piers being especially plentiful. Experienced anglers heading out on a full day trip can begin this way before heading offshore, whereas newbies can stay along the shore and fill the boat with Specks.
 

How to Prepare

You’ll be provided with rods, reels, and tackle, but will need to bring your own fishing license along with you. Galveston offers the best of both worlds when it comes to Speckled Trout fishing. All you need to do is pick where you want to go and get ready for an incredible adventure!

September can be spotty in this area depending on Temps, currents, wind and moon phase. Be sure you book with the right charter to ensure a good time. Fishing addiction definitely took care of us.

Let your Captain know exactly what you want when you board. If you want inshore for an hour or two and then shark for the rest, he’ll accommodate. Great trip!
