Catch a Beast of a Fish During Shark Season!

The Gulf of Mexico is home to a large variety of different sharks that are challenging to catch and a ton of fun to fish for! If you are looking to try something new and you want to catch a fish that will give you a run for your money, shark fishing is for you…

Haven’t been shark fishing? No problem. We’ll go over what you need to know to catch some amazing sharks while you are shark fishing in Galveston, Texas. 

If you are looking for a charter that knows everything there is to know about catching sharks in the Gulf, make sure you contact Wave Dancer Charters. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to have a great time out on the water fishing for the beast of a fish that is a shark! 

When Should I Go?

Shark fishing happens during the warmer Gulf months, which are generally from May to September. It’s also a great time to enjoy some time out on the water in general! What better time for a vacation in Galveston, Texas than later spring and summer?

What Sharks Can I Fish for in Galveston?

There are actually quite a few different types of sharks you can fish for in Galveston. These include:

  • Blacktip
  • Atlantic Sharpnose
  • Bonnethead
  • Hammerhead
  • Bull
  • Blacknose
  • And more!

Is Shark Fishing Family Friendly?

Yes and no. You can definitely take your family out with you on the charter boat and enjoy a nice day out on the water fishing. If you catch a shark, though, it’s important to ensure your children are far back when you pull the shark in. You also don’t want them getting anywhere near the shark, as it can still bite. 

So, yes, you can bring your whole family, but you need to be very cautious when pulling in a shark. 

Can I Eat Them?

Some sharks are actually delicious, such as the blacktip shark. Others, not so much. If you choose to book a trip with Wave Dancer Charters, we’ll let you know if you catch a tasty shark and help you prep it when we get back to the dock. 

Enjoy a Full Vacation

There are a lot of fun things to do in Galveston during the summer. While you are here shark fishing, make sure you hit the beach, check out Moody Gardens, and grab meals at our outstanding fresh seafood restaurants. 

Moody Gardens is a fun place for the whole family. They have a rainforest, museum, aquarium, rope courses, IMAX theater, and more. Galveston also has a massive waterpark next door to Moody Gardens called Shclitterbahn Galveston. It is a fun place for all ages. 

With Galveston being right on the water and being such a big fishing hub, make sure you enjoy some amazing seafood while you are visiting! Some great restaurants in the area include Katie’s Seafood House, Vargas Cut and Catch, Black Pearl Oyster Bar, and Miller’s Seawall Grill.
