September Signals the Start of the Running of the Bulls—Bull Redfish That Is!

From about mid-September through November is the best time of year when it comes to catching bull redfish. This is when they are on the move, heading from the bay to the offshore waters to spawn. It is absolutely one of the most fun times of the year to fish the waters of the Gulf of Mexico out of Galveston, TX, and catch these incredible fish.

Don’t know a lot about bull redfish and/or booking a fun fishing trip? Check out the information below to learn more about bull redfish, other fish you can catch in Galveston, TX, what other fun things there are to do in the area, and why you’ll want to book Wave Dancer Charters for your upcoming fishing trip…

What is a Bull Redfish?

If you haven’t heard of a bull redfish before you may be wondering just what it is and why you’ll want to catch one. Essentially, a bull redfish is an adult redfish that is larger than 27 inches. So, a bull redfish is a mature redfish that is larger, harder to catch, and a lot more fun to reel in!

What Other Fish Can I Catch?

Some other fish you can catch the same season as bull redfish include:

  • Mackerel 
  • Younger redfish
  • Mahi-mahi
  • Trout 
  • Southern Flounder 
  • Sheepshead 

At Wave Dancer Charters, we know all of the best places to catch the most delicious and fun fish. We ensure you catch the most fish possible, while also providing a fishing trip your family, friends, and you will cherish for a lifetime. 

Visiting Galveston

There are a ton of fun activities to enjoy in Galveston, and it is the perfect place to visit for a family vacation, some time with a spouse, or a friendly outing. September through November are quite beautiful months in Galveston, with the weather still being hot in September and cooling off a bit in November. Don’t worry, though! You won’t need snowshoes or anything; it’ll still be nice out! 

When you visit Galveston, make sure you check out the wonderful seafood restaurants! Some 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. 

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! 

As part of your vacation, check out Moody Gardens. It 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, which is a great way to cool off from the September heat.
