trip description for Wade Fishing Frenzy in Galveston

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

    Want to give a big, "Thanks!" to Jonathan at Captain Experiences for hooking me and my family up with Captain Mike and Daisy out of Surfside Beach, TX. Captain Mike took us right where the fish were right off the bat on our first stop where we caught our limit of red snapper including a 32", 22 pounder! We were also able to "rescue" some king fish out of the water as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time deep sea fishing and look forward to our next outing.
