Be sure to get your license before the store closes. Walmart and academy close early. Walmart stops selling license at 10. I would recommend going to the marina bait shop. It opens at 6:00 am and is right there.

The conditions were not ideal but Mike an Travis found the fish and we had a great time. They were very tentative to my wife with it being her first time on a fishing boat. They supplied everything else needed.

Went fishing with SeaPlay Sportfishing – SeaPlay VI on April 27, 2019
It definitely was advantageous and fun filling! We had so much fun. Boyfriend took his pole, but the captain provides everything including filleting the fishes. We caught 2 reds and sheep head. The weather was beautiful. I'll recommend this charter

Don’t expect to catch lots of fish, regardless of anyplace you go. But go with the mind set, of just being happy you got the chance to get out and fish!!!

The largest Guide service is not always the best. July weather is unpredictable be patient and let the Captain take you to the action.

Talk to the locals before you buy any equipment, you don't need as much as you think. Bring enough water.

The summer months are better weather, but we had good conditions in May. Plus we used live shrimp under a cork. which made the fishing easy for us.

May fishing was great. We only did the 4 hr trip but caught fish right away. Weather was perfect. Warm but not hot, nice breeze. We would definitely do this again!!

Find a service that has an experienced captain or crew. Ask questions about your outing. Do some research before booking. Summer months are really the best time to go in Galveston.

Be prepared for cool conditions. We were a little cold because we didn't prepare well. Bring layers, and you will be fine.

Wear sun screen and a hat. The reflection off of the water will burn you just as easy as the sunlight will. Relax and enjoy the trip and let your guide do their job in finding the fish.

Fish during the good season. Fishing in March can be difficult. The season in March can be good and can be bad, just depends on several things.

Spring months offer different fish than in the summer months. Talk to your guide to see what fish you’ll target before you book.

Yes, but with fluctuating temperatures from the 40's,50's and 60's the fish move around quite a bit. It helps to know those patterns.

Be sure to book a guide if you haven't fished these waters. A good guide is also a good teacher.
