Prepare for One of the Biggest Fighters This August—The Greater Amberjack!

If you are a seasoned fisherman or fisherwoman and you are looking for an exciting challenge, look no further than the greater amberjack! This fish is a ton of fun to catch, and Galveston, Texas is the place to head to if you want to take on the challenge.

But what is the greater amberjack? Are there other fish that can be caught during a charter fishing trip? What else is there to do in Galveston? And how is Wave Dancer Charters the best charter company in Galveston?

Below is some excellent information about the greater amberjack, fishing in Galveston, and scheduling the perfect fishing trip to our amazing city! 

What is the Greater Amberjack?

The greater amberjack (also known as the allied kingfish and greater yellowtail) is a popular fish among sport fishing enthusiasts due to its famous fighting abilities. It’s fast, strong, and will give you a heck of a challenge once you hook it. These fish not only taste amazing, but they can also grow up to 100 pounds!

It’s important to note that the greater amberjack is most active in the summer—especially August 1-24st. If you don’t have a visit booked to Galveston and a charter boat to take you out, give Wave Dancer Charters a call today! 

Are There Other Fish I Can Catch?

If you aren’t as experienced of a fisherman or woman and/or you have a family that would like to fish more casually, don’t worry! There are a lot of other fun fish to catch during the summer in Galveston. These include:

  • Redfish
  • Mahi-mahi
  • Kingfish
  • Cobia
  • Sea trout
  • Mangrove snapper
  • Bull sharks
  • Blacktip sharks

The crew at Wave Dancer Charters know all the best spots to catch these fish and will make sure your entire family has fun fishing in the waters of Galveston.

Your Full Vacation Plans

Along with fishing, there are some great things to do in Galveston during the summer months.

Make sure you visit Moody Gardens, which is fun for the whole family. They have a rainforest pyramid, rope courses, a museum, an aquarium, an 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. 

As Galveston is right on the water there are some fantastic seafood restaurants you can check out while in the area! Wave Dancer Charters can also provide a “Catch and Cook,” experience, where we clean the fillets for you after you catch them, and you then take your fish to a nearby restaurant for them to prepare it for you! 

Some other great restaurants in the area you’ll want to check out include Katie’s Seafood House, Vargas Cut and Catch, Black Pearl Oyster Bar, and Miller’s Seawall Grill.
