trip description for Clear Lake Flounder Special in Clear Lake Shores

Catching a Flounder is always a treat because they are one of the tastiest you can pull out of the ocean anywhere in the world. This fish is always a target of any angler, but especially in the winter months with the larger fish moving inshore. Flounder like to travel in loose schools so if you catch one you might just be able to hook 5 or 10 more in the same pass. This bottom-hugging flatfish likes to burrow itself in the sand of moving waters around inlets and passes waiting for the tide to bring food past them. So head out with Captain Kerry and crew for an epic day as they truly do know these waters like the back of their hand. All his boats can accommodate 4 anglers and are equipped with live bait wells and trolling motors. Captain Kerry and crew usually like to meet up at Schaefer's Coastal Bar, but are they more than happy to pick you up from any restaurant or Hotel on Clearlake/Kemah area. These trips are for anglers of all skill levels and ages. No matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, Captain Kerry will lead the way and take care of everything! They will provide all the bait, tackle, rods, and gear. You only need to bring food and drinks and Texas saltwater fishing license. Read More

The most common fishing techniques in Baytown are light tackle fishing, artificial lure fishing, and live bait fishing but drift fishing and bottom fishing are popular as well.

How much do Baytown fishing charters cost?

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What month is best for fishing in Baytown?

Baytown Fishing Overview

Located where Buffalo Bayou and San Jacinto River feed into the Galveston Bay Complex, Baytown is an ideal spot for inshore species to flourish. This provides an awesome jumping-off point for bay fishing. Having plenty of bays and backwaters means there are limitless places to target inshore species including redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and sheepshead. With excellent fishing upriver from Baytown and down into the rest of the Galveston Bay Area, you can catch fish almost anywhere. With numerous nearby bays, plentiful fish, and multiple ways to hit the water you are sure to have a fishing experience like no other.

Fishing the Bay Complex Around Baytown

With nearby bays like Galveston Bay, Trinity Bay, and Burnet Bay finding fish will not be a problem. The bite kicks off every year with speckled trout in the spring while flounder come on strong from summer into fall. Bull redfish take things up a notch during their migration in the fall and provide your best shot at landing a giant. When things cool off going into winter sheepshead stack up near structure and can provide all the action you can handle.

Despite these seasons, Specks and reds can be caught here throughout the year but the odds of catching a monster are slightly lower. No matter what season it is, there is always at least one species biting in Baytown. If you are looking for a less conventional approach to bay fishing, a kayak fishing trip will let you sneak around skinny water and experience getting pulled around while fighting a bull red!

Offshore Fishing Near Baytown

Although Baytown has all the inshore action you can handle, Galveston is more well equipped for offshore fishing. A quick drive down to Galveston will get you on a charter that can take you to the vast and productive bluewaters off the Texas coast. This area is home to incredible billfish and tuna fishing that will excite anglers of all experience levels.

    We had the best time with Captain David! He was so nice and fun to fish with. I had never saltwater fished and he was very patient with me. She showed me how to bait the hook and did it for me until I was comfortable doing it myself. No judgement. He was an all around good guy! Took us to several spots and put us in fish every spot. We caught black drum, croakers and red drum. He took me to his Hail Mary spot ( shhh it’s a secret). And I caught a 15 pound Red Drum. He helped me step by step land it into the boat. It was so much fun and he was as excited as I was. We saw a mama and her baby dolphin and he took me as close as he could to them so I could get some pictures because he knew I was excited to see them. On the way back to the pier he told us some history and info about the things we were seeing. I will definitely book with Captain David next time we go down there.

    For sure was not the trip of a lifetime nor worth all the money and extra expenses, didn’t end up shooting any hogs or seeing anything the first night nor did we get to even get to hunt hogs for the second night like planned due to weather however did have very friendly, accommodating and respectable guides all around.

    Leah A. with Mark M. of Houston, Texas

    We had a great trip with Captain Leb! We had all experience levels on our trip and he was able to help each of us in turn allowing us to go home with fish for dinner and some amazing pictures of fishes we had to throw back.

    Brant is an amazing guide. He genuinely cares about you having a safe and memorable trip. It was a bit warm and crowded but we did catch a lot of fish many small trouts a couple of black drum and ultimately ended with 5 trouts that were legal a one black drum. We caught more cats than we could count but quickly threw those back. Brant enjoys fishing and will spend as much time as you want teaching you all he knows about fishing and the area. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great trip Brant.
