Galveston Bay Fishing is Second to None
If you are a fishing enthusiast, Galveston Bay fishing is a must for your “bucket” list. Sheltered between the upper coast of mainland Texas and the Galveston and Pelican Islands on the Gulf, Galveston Bay’s unique combination of fresh water from inland rivers and saltwater from the Gulf creates an ideal environment for a wide variety of fish. Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout are just a few of the many species that abound in the jetties, surf and shallow flats of Galveston Bay.
No one knows Galveston Bay fishing better than Capt. Darrell Hingle of Hingle’s Guide Service.
Aboard the “CATILLAC”, a 33 foot World Cat Catamaran, Capt. Hingle will take you to some of the best coastal shallow water fishing sites available along the Texas coast. In addition to the Galveston and Freeport inshore bays, your Galveston Bay fishing trip will include fishing the surf, structure and wrecks, and some offshore blue water. As Capt. Hingle says, “We fish where the fish are.” Hingle’s Guide Service fishes with artificial lures, soft plastics and various live baits, including croaker and shrimp. You are also welcome to bring your own fly fishing tackle. Whether you wade fish or fish from the boat, you are guaranteed an outstanding Galveston Bay fishing experience.
Hingle’s Guide Service also offers scenic tours and corporate packages. The beautiful coastal community of Galveston, Texas encompasses approximately 208 square miles on Galveston and Pelican Islands. In addition to awesome saltwater fishing in some of the largest bays on the Texas coast, Galveston is a beautiful place to spend the day along the seemingly endless shoreline. Enjoy watching bottlenose dolphins, brown pelicans and the many other species of wildlife and waterfowl so abundant in this unique environment.
Expand your Galveston Bay fishing experience by setting aside time to visit some of the city’s famous sites. Galveston is home to many historical sites like the Strand National Historic District, a five block cluster of Victorian era buildings housing shops, museums and restaurants, and the Hotel Galvez, serving Galveston since 1911. Other tourist attractions include the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, a boardwalk-style amusement park built 1,130 feet over the Gulf, the Moody Gardens botanical park, the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, the Lone Star Flight Museum, and the Galveston Railroad Museum. Don’t forget the evening hours. Galveston nightlife provides you a little bit of everything from the quaint beachside bars of the Seawall to performances by national and international stars at the Grand 1894 Opera House.
