How is the fishing in Surfside Beach?
Headed to the Freeport area to fish? You're in for a treat. A stone's throw from Houston but significantly less crowded than Galveston (and less fished), this area has great inshore and offshore options.
Inshore fishing in Surfside Beach
If you've fished Texas you know what to expect here: big speckled trout, schooling redfish, and lots of flounder. You might even find some tarpon in the surf if you're lucky. Half and full-day trips are great to take advantage of some awesome inshore action.
Surfside Beach provides some great access for getting out into the Gulf. Easy runs out to rigs and reefs mean you have a ton of options: red snappers, kingfish, spanish mackerel, cobia, mahi mahi, black and yellowfin tuna, wahoo. Head for a snapper trip in the summer or catch tuna most of the rest of the year - an extended trip is best to get you all the way out to prime tuna grounds.
