Hop on board with Scott for an exciting day of fishing on Toledo Bend! On this 6-hour trip on the freshwater reservoir, you'll be targeting Blue Catfish, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Striped Bass and White Bass. Largemouth Bass is the most popular game fish at Toledo Bend Reservoir and an excellent year-round fishery exists. You can also fish for crappie and catfish all year.

You’ll be fishing on Scott’s 25’ Skeeter center console, which is equipped with a GPS, fishfinder and live bait well. It can accommodate 6 anglers.

trip description for Bull Red and Shark Fishing 5 Hours in Galveston

This trip is focusing on catching bull reds, and sharks when they are in close to the beachfront. We will use both live and dead bait to attract and hopefully catch the big boys of the bay. As always, all rods, tackle, bait and fish cleaning is included. Do we fish if it’s raining or windy? Safety is a priority. If there are severe storms in the area or if the wind is out of control, I’ll suggest we delay or try to reschedule the trip. There’s no sense in going out and being uncomfortable, and I will never put us in danger. But if it’s just a little rain, let’s go – the fish are already wet! Read More
