Captain's Corner: Galveston Fishing Report with Capt. L.G.

Galveston Spring break action is in full swing- bull Black Drum, Sheepshead, and slot Redfish are here and they're hungry!

At the jetties, bull Black Drum are red hot on tide fluctuations. Heavy morning fog can complicate hitting the tidal outflows/inflows on time but they're biting if you can get there!

Capt. LG and his groups caught 10+ drum yesterday (3/12/20), a few Redfish, and a few Sheepshead. The bull Black Drum are chomping best on cracked crab.

Bay fishing has been spotty with Capt. LG catching fish every day but not a lot of keepers. Capt. LG says the Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder are still way up north (Baytown area) following winter patterns.

Capt. LG's finding strong pods of Redfish following winter patterns.

As the weather warms up, the bait will mature and start migrating towards the Gulf. That’ll bring the fish with them and will bring them south into East Bay and West Bay.

For now, Redfish and Speckled Trout are mostly hitting live shrimp. Moving around, spots have been largely inconsistent, but the best bet is drifting oyster shell bottom in 3-6’ of water.
