Trip Summary

Fishing Galveston bay at spring Break is a great way to spend a day outdoors. These trips are family friendly and really laid back. This time of year we really target fish that are readily available, eager to eat, pull hard and taste great. Often called bay snapper, the sheephead is a great fighter, always hungry and the expression when kids see their ugly mug is great. A bonus to these fish is that you can take them to several restaurants on the island or on Bolivar peninsula and have it cooked for you! The other fish that get the nod this time of year is the black drum. 49-50 lb fish are common. It’s a great way for kids and adults get to experience pulling a Volkswagen off the bottom without going offshore. Most of these are over the 30” max legal length so a quick pic and back in the water. As a bonus we usually catch bull reds too. If the drum is the Volkswagen of the sea, the bullred is the Ferrari with reel screaming runs, they will test your skills. Book now before the best days are gone!
