Galveston Bay With Captain Harry
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

These guys like to travel in schools and when the tide is low we can often see them tailing on top of the water and target them by sight fishing. Redfish get their name from their coppery bronze color that has a tinge of red color. Normally, redfish have one spot on the base of their tails but often there are several spots. Redfish can be fished all year long, but the prime time for this fish is fall when the water is still warm!

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
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.
Teresa L. with David R. of Baytown, Texas
Captain David was great. The weather and the tide was working hard against us and he worked harder to put us on fish. Great trip with a quality guide, I will be back.
