Thankfully, you'll have Captain Jennifer's steady hand and expertise to help you catch a trophy! You'll be fishing aboard a sleek 26' Mako center console, powered by twin Yamaha engines. She has plenty of space for up to six guests, so bring friends and folks! Captain Jennifer will provide everything you need for a blue-ribbon trip, including rods, reels, and tackle.

What is bonnethead shark fishing in Texas City all about?

Bonnethead sharks, often referred to as "bonnies," are a fascinating species found in the waters around Texas City, Texas. These sharks are the smallest members of the hammerhead family, distinguished by their unique shovel-shaped heads, which resemble a bonnet or shovel. Bonnethead sharks are primarily found in shallow coastal waters, including bays, estuaries, and nearshore reefs, where they feed on a variety of prey such as small fish, crustaceans, and mollusks. Despite their relatively small size compared to other sharks, bonnetheads are strong and agile predators, making them a prized catch among anglers.

Fishing for bonnethead sharks in Texas City offers anglers the chance to experience the thrill of battling these feisty predators. Bonnetheads are known for their willingness to take a variety of baits, including cut fish, squid, and shrimp, presented on heavy tackle. Anglers commonly target bonnethead sharks using bottom fishing techniques, such as anchoring near channels, flats, or drop-offs where these sharks are known to feed. Additionally, casting from shore or drifting with live bait can also be productive methods for targeting bonnetheads in Texas City's waters.

The peak season for catching bonnethead sharks in Texas City typically occurs during the warmer months of spring and summer when water temperatures rise, and these sharks become more active inshore. However, bonnetheads can be caught year-round, with anglers adapting their tactics to the changing seasons and conditions. Whether fishing from a boat, pier, or shoreline, anglers in Texas City have ample opportunities to target bonnethead sharks while enjoying the scenic beauty and rich marine biodiversity of the area.

What are the most popular months to fish for bonnethead shark fishing in Texas City?

Understanding the seasonal patterns of bonnethead sharks in Texas City's waters is crucial for anglers aiming to target these fascinating predators successfully. The prime season for bonnethead shark fishing in Texas City typically occurs during the warmer months of spring and summer. As water temperatures rise during this time, bonnethead sharks become more active and move closer to the shorelines, bays, and estuaries in search of prey. Anglers can capitalize on this increased activity by targeting bonnetheads using various fishing techniques, such as bottom fishing with cut bait or casting with artificial lures.

During the spring months, from March to May, bonnethead shark fishing in Texas City starts to pick up as water temperatures begin to rise and baitfish become more abundant. Anglers can find bonnetheads patrolling shallow flats, channels, and nearshore reefs, making them accessible targets for both boat-based and shore-based anglers. As summer progresses, from June to August, bonnethead shark activity reaches its peak in Texas City's waters. Anglers can expect increased numbers of bonnetheads prowling the shallows, providing ample opportunities for exciting and rewarding fishing experiences.

While bonnethead sharks can be caught year-round in Texas City, their activity may decrease during the cooler months of fall and winter. However, with milder winters in the region, anglers can still encounter bonnetheads inshore, particularly in areas with warmer water temperatures and abundant food sources. By adjusting their tactics and targeting areas with suitable conditions, anglers can continue to pursue bonnethead sharks throughout the year in Texas City, enjoying the thrill of hooking into these agile and spirited predators while immersing themselves in the vibrant coastal environment of the area.

What techniques are popular for catching bonnethead shark in Texas City?

Fishing for bonnethead sharks in Texas City requires employing specific techniques tailored to these agile predators' behavior and habitat. One effective technique is bottom fishing using heavy tackle and natural baits. Anglers commonly use cut fish, squid, or shrimp presented on strong hooks and leaders to entice strikes from bonnethead sharks. Fishing near channels, flats, or drop-offs where bonnetheads are known to feed can increase the likelihood of success. Anchoring the boat or fishing from a stationary position onshore allows anglers to present their baits effectively and wait for the bonnetheads to take the bait.

Another productive technique for targeting bonnethead sharks in Texas City is casting with artificial lures. Anglers can use a variety of lures such as swimbaits, spoons, or soft plastics that mimic the movement of injured or distressed prey. Casting into areas where bonnethead sharks are known to frequent, such as shallow flats, sandbars, or nearshore reefs, can yield exciting strikes from these predators. Retrieving the lure with a slow and erratic motion can attract the attention of nearby bonnetheads and entice them to strike.

Drifting with live bait is another effective method for targeting bonnethead sharks in Texas City's waters. Anglers can use live bait such as mullet, pinfish, or croaker presented on a sliding sinker or Carolina rig while drifting along channels, flats, or drop-offs. This technique allows anglers to cover more ground and locate actively feeding bonnetheads. By adjusting their presentation and bait selection based on the conditions and the behavior of the bonnetheads, anglers in Texas City can enjoy consistent success while targeting these agile and spirited predators.

What other species are popular in Texas City

In addition to bonnethead sharks, anglers in Texas City have a diverse range of fish species to target, offering varied and exciting fishing opportunities. One popular species among anglers is the red drum, also known as redfish, which inhabits the bays, estuaries, and nearshore waters around Texas City. Red drum are prized for their powerful runs and hard-fighting nature, making them a sought-after target for both recreational and sport anglers. Anglers can target red drum using a variety of techniques such as bait fishing with live or cut bait, casting with artificial lures, or fly fishing along the shallow flats.

Another prized species in Texas City's waters is the speckled trout, known for its aggressive strikes and delicious table fare. Speckled trout can be found in the bays, channels, and grassy flats around Texas City, where they feed on small baitfish, shrimp, and crabs. Anglers targeting speckled trout often use live bait such as shrimp or mullet, as well as artificial lures such as soft plastics, spoons, or topwater plugs. Speckled trout fishing in Texas City can provide thrilling action and memorable catches for anglers of all skill levels.

Furthermore, Texas City offers opportunities to target a variety of other species, including flounder, black drum, sheepshead, and snapper, among others. These diverse fishing opportunities cater to anglers of all preferences and experience levels, ensuring there's always something new to discover on the water. Whether fishing from a boat, pier, or shoreline, anglers in Texas City can enjoy the thrill of hooking into a variety of game fish while immersing themselves in the rich coastal environment of the area.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    We had an amazing time with Captain Steve and Chris. They were very knowledgeable about the areas and where good spots to fish were. We visited several different spots inshore and caught tons of fish! They were absolutely incredible when it came to showing us how to use the fishing poles, bait the hooks and helping us once we caught the fish. If we had any questions/issues with the poles, they helped us out. My family and I had an incredible time with them and were surprised at how much we caught! Captain Steve even cleaned the fish for us and bagged up the fillets so we did not need to worry about that. All around great time and my family is already talking about taking another trip out with them later this year.

    Captain Steve is the best. Knows so much about fishing in general and the area in specific. We didn’t catch many today but we had an excellent experience anyway. Can’t wait to head out with him again.

    Bobby & Jonathan were PHENOMENAL. We took the 6 hour shark hunt and they both went above and beyond to catch everything we could. We had a group of 7 from age 5 to 30. They made sure we ALL had a blast. 1000/10. Absolutely recommend and must do again.

    My son and I wanted to go fishing over spring break. He had his heart set on going deep sea fishing. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans. However, after speaking to Brandon we identified the best day possible to fish the bay. Captain Steve and first mate Jimmy took us out and made sure we had an outstanding time. While the boats around us were struggling to catch anything, my son was busy all morning catching fish. The weather window was perfect and we had a great time. These guys are great!!! We will definitely be back. Thanks again to Brandon, Steve and Jimmy.

    Son and I had a awesome trip with Capt Danny. Wind was blowing but found birds and found lots of fish. Main goal was to put my son on some nice redfish and last stop paid off with four redfish in less than 20 minutes. Would have liked one slot but that is why they call it fishing and I’ll take 4 rats over nothing any day. We did get some specs and sand trout to take home. Best part was back at the dock when we rigged up a sand trout and son Hooked into a huge alligator gar that he fought for almost ten minutes. Thanks again for a enjoyable trip.

    Rob R. with Mike S. of Hitchcock, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Fantastic trip! Captain was awesome and very knowledgeable. Would want our same Captain Danny again. Worth every penny I paid!!!!

    Had a great time. We fished for Sheepshead and caught so many that we got tired. We then went out into the by and each of us was able to bring up a large drum. We will be back for other trips. Excellent guides were very patient with us novices
