Background
Capt. Jeff is located on Stingaree Canal on East Galveston Bay (Crystal Beach) where you will fish aboard a Texas Made Gulf Coast vessel. These waters are known for Redfish and Trout and he will show you how and where to catch them, whether you're popping or spinning. With 35 years of saltwater experience on Galveston Bay, he has a trick or two up his sleeve. Family, Friendly, and Fun describe the reviews from Capt Jeff's ecstatic clients and he promises to make your day on the water a memory that lasts forever.
Techniques
Captain Jeff specializes in teaching trips with artificial lures & presentations, as that is his specialty, as well as the option to utilize live bait (at bait store prices), so the choice is yours as to how you want to approach the day. Either way it will be a Great Day admiring and enjoying Gods beauty on the waters of Galveston Bay.

Fishing Reports

East Galveston Bay 4/30/2024
East Galveston Bay 4/30/2024
Apr 30, 2024 Bolivar Peninsula
Surface water temperature 76 degrees. Water clarity is normal for East Galveston Bay, with the further East you travel the more stirred up the water is. With the high tides and strong South/Southeast winds we battled this week we were limited to fishing close to the shoreline over scattered shell and back in the back lakes to hide from the wind the best we could. As in previous weeks, if you see active bait the fish are close by. Anchor or PowerPole down and fan cast the entire area, as this week we were able to catch multiple limits of trout from just a couple of small areas. If you get into an area and do not see bait activity, make a few casts, and move on, as our experience has been, if you find good amounts of bait the fish are close by. This week we have thrown ¼ oz jig heads with Wac Attack straight tails in Monkey Milk, Top Waters, as well as marker 54 Glide Shrimp, under a 1’ – 2’ leader and a Fish Smack Popping Cork. The popping cork/shrimp setup was the top performer for our fishing clients this week resulting in some of the most aggressive bites of the year. We also managed to catch several over the slot Redfish this week in the same areas, as well as some nice flounder. Spring is finally here, and fishing is continuing to heat up as the water warms and the fronts blowing thru become less disruptive. If you are looking to get out on the water and beat the crowds, now is the perfect time to make it happen, and as always, we will design a trip around your expectations, and guarantee you will have a great time fishing East Galveston Bay.
