Here Fishy Fishy Fishy

The rain has finally cleared off and the old familiar heat and humidity has returned here in Galveston, Texas.  Just in time for our Red Snapper season to come to an end for the year, we have tight lines and good times here with the Captains of Fishin Addiction Charters.  Over the next few weeks our offshore trips will be focusing on King Mackerel, Cobia, Dorados, among other delicious fish.  I'll be sharing a few great recipes in the coming days for these great fighting fish hitting the dock.  For Galveston deep sea fishing, Amberjack season opens up on August 1st, adding them to the box of blackfin tunas, and a grouper would make a great trip and tons of memories to take back home.

From the jetties, we continue to catch nice redfish, speckled trout, spanish mackerel, and some sharks.  Here is the perfect example from a recent jetty trip we had.  This little girl caught some great fish including a some tournament class slot redfish and a 6 lb speckled trout.

The most recent development for both inshore and deep sea fishing charters is the opening of Federal Shrimp season here in Texas.  With it comes a great new fishing opportunity for pelagic fishes offshore, and BIG Sharks inshore.  This is the perfect time to go chase that big shark along the beachfront of Galveston, Texas.  This is a very unique type of Galveston fishing charter, and is a challenge for anglers of any level of experience.

Thanks for keeping up with the happenings here in Galveston, Texas with Fishin Addiction Charters and share us with your friends.  To book your Galveston fishing charter, visit thefishinaddiction.com or gulfoffshorefishing.com

The July Report

As far as the fishing report, it's been almost two different world as far as inshore and offshore lately.  There has not been a day thus far in the Red Snapper season that Capt. Dan has left the dock on the fountain without returning with a limit of BIG Red Snappers just like this from offshore!  Meanwhile, at the jetties and in the bay, the fishing has seen its ups and downs day to day.  Since my last update we were catching great speckled trout every day and redfish mixed in.  With the latest shift into the full moon came ripping tides and rainy days.  This has made it tough to find the trout and reds, but we are still hitting the dock with a few, but made up for it with sheepsheads in good numbers.  As the lightning and thunderstorms danced around us yesterday on the water, we nailed those nice trout again.  Gettting back just in time for the heavy downpour with a box of trout, with 2 over 23 inches and I have faith that when the weather gets better I'll be right back on the fish.
With a great bay trip behind me for the morning, I met Dan at the dock to see another solid day of Galveston deep sea fishing... Little did I know, my day was pretty good, but their day offshore was just spectacular.  The deckhand, Roy started unloading with the usual big Red Snappers,  nice kings, and a couple big cobias.  Then they pulled out the surprises, 2 nice wahoos, and 12 awesome dorado!  Great trips guys, and a big thanks to all of our happy clients over the past few weeks.  Happy fishermen leaving our boats is why we are in this business, and why we are up early every day working for y'all.  
Also, a special thank you to our guests, and newest members of the Charter Fishermans' Association.  We are proud to have your voice in improving sustainability and access to our nations' fishery resources.
