GALVESTON FISHING REPORTS

 Welcome to our Galveston Fishing Reports or Galveston Bay Fishing Reports page. I will post updated fishing reports, pictures and even some videos. I will try to post at least one to two fishing reports per month on this page for those of you that enjoy an honest report. I will post some pictures from some recent trips with some of our customers. I will also post some video of some trips and mix in a how to or instructional video from time to time.

 If you want reports from a variety of Captains that I network with, you can check out our Facebook Page. Our Facebook page consist of many fishing guides that post fishing reports & pictures from trips throughout the Galveston Bay Complex. We will give up to date fishing reports on the speckled trout, redfish, flounder and other seasonal action. Hope you enjoy all the fishing reports, pictures & discussions and return soon. "Thanks Capt. Alan."

GALVESTON BAY FISHING REPORTS


GALVESTON BAY FISHING REPORT: 5-18-19

 I know I sound like a broken record, but what is going on with our crazy weather? It has been so windy this month and on top of that we have had some crazy rain and flooding events. The spring months are traditionally a bit windier than most, but we have really had it bad over the past couple of years during spring. Now on the hand full of days each week that the wind has been down, my customers have done well. I had some repeat customers Bill White and his daughter Michelle go out with me and like always we had a blast. I also had Lee Harmon and his friend Mike go out with me 2 days in a row and they limited out on specks both days. They got 2 beautiful days with light winds and that made the difference. I am still using live shrimp under a cork right now. I will probably give croaker a try soon, within the next couple of weeks. I have been trying some different areas including East & West Bay depending on the wind. On the good weather days it has been pretty easy to box some nice healthy trout. Fishing will only get more consistent as we approach the summer months. I want to say thanks to the great staff at Waterloo Rods, they are my rod sponsor now and my customers absolutely love the new rods. I am looking forward to a long business relationship with them. Until next time, see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan

GALVESTON FISHING REPORT: 4-15-19

 For the past 4-5 years April has been real windy. The spring months are traditionally a bit windier than most seasons, but we have really had it bad over the past couple of years. Add in all the rain and it can be tough at times to stay on fish. I go out one day and catch some nice trout, then go out the next day and it's slow. It's not that the fish just moved over night, the wind switched direction and started to blow over 20 mph. Speckled trout highly prefer cleaner water and feed a lot better in calmer conditions. With some consistent wind, we can stay on the trout and find them much easier. Once that wind blows over 20 mph, it makes it tough for us to move around from spot to spot. So this time of the year I have to reschedule a hand full of trips. All that being said, we have still managed to have some successful outings. I am still using live shrimp under a cork right now. I will probably give croaker a try in the middle of May. I have been trying some different areas including East & West Bay with mixed results. On the good weather days it has been pretty easy to box some nice healthy trout. Fishing will only get better from here until the summer. I hope you enjoy my fishing reports and hopefully my next one will be me talking about limits of trout being caught. Until next time, see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan

 March has arrived and spring break is here. Fishing was really excellent for a few days this week, but now of all things we are dealing with fog. Fog is not something that we have to deal with much this time of the year. It makes it hard to move around and it keeps the water from warming up. We are still catching some fish, but not nearly as many as a couple of days ago. I can remember when spring break was warm & sunny, now each year seems to be different. I know that the trout were starting to show up better in West bay and in lower Galveston, but with all the changes in weather they are probably moving around now. Trout are a very seasonal moving species and they rely on the weather to dictate where they are moving to next. So once the weather patterns get to be a little more consistent, we should be able to stay on those schools of specks more & more consistently. You just have to use your experience and knowledge to find the fish and stay on them. Live shrimp is still my bait of choice. I will be trying some new area on some upcoming trips, so I will keep you informed. Until next time, see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan

 Well it has been another interesting winter. Fishing is always a little tougher this time of the year. Again the weather is the main culprit. A lot of people think that the cold has a negative affect on the fishing and actually the cooler temps usually help the trout to get moving and feeding again. As long as we don't have a freeze, the cold weather is a positive for fishing. Now that being said cold and high winds are not good for fishing. I have been a guide full time guide for 18 years and the one thing that is the hardest element to overcome is a strong wind. Sure we can fish protected areas, but are the fish going to be in those areas. You just have to adjust the best you can and use your experience and knowledge to put yourself in the best position to catch fish. Speckled trout are very finicky, they are a species that you really have to understand to consistently catch them. All this being said, we have had some good to great trips lately, with some slow days mixed in. We are still using live shrimp under a cork, drifting and anchoring in some areas. Looking for nervous bait and clear water has been key to our success. Seems like they are feeding best with a moving tide. if you want to get out on a good day, please give me a call Until next time, see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan

  So fishing has been in a typical fall pattern. With all the fronts starting to come in and the weather being cold for a couple of days, then warming up and then windy, it can be challenging at times. It can be frustrating to go out 2 days in a row and they seem to be jumping in the boat then you go out the next 2-3 days and the weather has changed and you have to grind it out to catch a nice box of fish. It is all part of being a fishing guide and trying to explain to anglers that it is fishing. As most of you that follow me know that my favorite saying is "Give me good weather and I will give you a good fishing trip." And that is especially true during the fall. On the better weather days we have been catching some nice speckled trout, some red fish and a few drum and sheep head. Even on the not so good weather days we are catching some nice fish, it's just a bit harder. Moving around and trying to catch these fish feeding has been the key. Once you get on a good school that is feeding, stay on them and get serious. My customers are using live shrimp under a cork for best results. Some days you really have to pop that cork to attract the bites. fishing about 12-18 inches off the bottom has been the best method for us. Well until next time, I will see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan
