Welcome to Galveston Bay, one of the most popular fishing destinations in Texas! This is where the Gulf of Mexico meets the bays and estuaries that are home to some of the best game fish in the region. Galveston Bay is known for its incredible flounder, redfish, and speckled trout fishing, and one of the best ways to experience it is by wade fishing. Wade fishing is a unique and exciting way to catch fish, and it's especially popular in Galveston Bay. This type of fishing involves standing in the shallow water and casting your line, using a lure or bait to entice the fish to bite. The thrill of feeling the tug on your line and the satisfaction of reeling in a big catch is hard to beat! The best time to go wade fishing in Galveston Bay is during the fall and winter months, when the water is cooler and the fish are more active. Flounder, redfish, and speckled trout are all plentiful during this time of year, and you're sure to have an amazing time. Flounder are a popular catch in Galveston Bay, and they're known for their delicious, delicate meat. These flatfish are often found hiding in the sandy bottoms of the bay, and you can use a variety of lures and baits to entice them to bite. As you cast your line and wait for a bite, keep an eye out for any movement or ripples in the water. When a flounder bites, you'll feel a distinct tug on your line, and you'll need to reel it in quickly to avoid losing it. Redfish, also known as red drum, are another popular game fish in Galveston Bay. These powerful fish can grow up to 50 pounds, and they put up a fierce fight when you hook them. You can use a variety of lures and baits to catch redfish, including live shrimp, mullet, and crab. As you reel in your line, you'll feel the redfish tugging and pulling, trying to get away. But with some skill and patience, you'll be able to land a big one. Finally, there's speckled trout, which are perhaps the most sought-after game fish in Galveston Bay. These beautiful fish are known for their distinctive spots and their tasty, flaky meat. You can use a variety of lures and baits to catch speckled trout, including topwater lures, soft plastics, and live shrimp. As you cast your line, keep an eye out for any signs of trout activity, such as jumping or splashing in the water. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a beginner, a wade fishing trip in Galveston Bay is an experience you won't soon forget. With some patience, skill, and a bit of luck, you'll be able to catch some amazing flounder, redfish, and speckled trout, and enjoy some of the best fishing in Texas! Read More

Steve was a great guide easy going and easy to work with. His great attitude and demeanor while working to keep my teenage daughters first saltwater fishing experience great was above and beyond. Thank you Steve you made it a great day.
We had a wonderful time all around. I went with my brothers and we all have fishing experience but not from a boat. It has been raining a lot so we didn't have our hopes up for a large haul. Captain Steve took us around a couple places until we were able to get on some fish. According to the local posting we did quite well given the circumstances. We used his gear and had no issues. He knows his stuff and was very easy to be comfortable around for the entire time, which only added to our experience. He was very professional and helpful. We learned a thing or two and would certainly use him again. - Cheers and tight lines! …
