Galveston has long been one of the best inshore fishing locations in Texas. Year round, the Galveston Bay complex boasts sought after game fish including speckled trout, redfish and flounder. Trinity Bay, West Bay, East Bay and what some call Galveston Bay proper near the Texas City Dike, Galveston causeway and Pelican Island are home to some of the best fishing on the Texas gulf coast. The great fishing along with great scenery along 30 miles of beautiful beaches and coastal marshes make it a must do trip for fishing enthusiasts.
Galveston,Texas has some of the best saltwater wade fishing
and drift fishing available on the Gulf Coast.
Wade fishermen are drawn to the many Galveston Bay oyster reefs and grass and sand flats while boat fisherman focus on structure found at the Galveston Jetties, deep reefs and man made piers. Fishing the many reefs and flats in more remote locations can typically be less crowded, especially during holidays and weekend fishing excursions.
