Fishing Surfside Beach, Texas

If you are headed to the Freeport area to fish then you're in for a treat. A stone's throw from Houston but significantly less crowded and fish than Galveston, this area has great inshore and offshore options. With such rich and bountiful waters, this is the perfect place for any angler to find success.

Inshore fishing Surfside Beach

If you've fished Texas you know what to expect here: big speckled trout, schooling redfish, and lots of flounder. With some luck, you might even find some tarpon in the surf. Half or full-day trips can both work to take advantage of some awesome inshore action. With inlets, channels, and bays everywhere you look, it's easy to see why the fishing is top-notch. Speckled trout have their peak bite in the spring followed by flounder in the summer. Giant bull redfish come in and bite hard during their fall spawning run and make for some memorable sight casting in skinny water.

Offshore Fishing Surfside Beach

Surfside Beach provides some great access for getting out into the Gulf of Mexico. Easy runs out to rigs and reefs mean you have a ton of options including various species of snappers and grouper near the bottom with kingfish, Spanish mackerel, cobia, mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, and wahoo hitting lures near the surface. Head out for a snapper trip in the summer or wahoo in the winter. You can catch tuna most of the year with extended trips being the best to get you out to prime tuna grounds.
