Spring break is such a fun time of the year! The sun, the beach, the ocean…and phenomenal fishing! I love fishing in the spring, as does everyone we bring out on our charter boats. There are so many fun fish to catch!
Let’s take a look at some great fish you can catch in Galveston, Texas in the spring, along with some fun ways to enjoy your time on our island when you aren’t on the water watching amazing fish.
What Fish to Look Out for During Spring Break
Sheepshead is a wonderful-tasting fish that can be a fun challenge to catch. They like to hang out around structure like rocks and pilings. These fish fight hard, so you’ll want to make sure you have the right equipment and a good guide along with you to give you tips for catching a beautiful sheepshead.
Black drum fish are huge inshore fish that are often upwards of 60-70 pounds. This makes them a ton of fun to catch and extremely rewarding to reel in. Like with sheepshead, black drum fish like to hang out around pilings and other structure. If you haven’t caught a black drum fish before and you need any help, we can provide you with lots of pointers. Don’t be afraid to ask!
Plan Your Vacation
Before heading to Galveston, make sure you plan out your vacation ahead of time. There are some really fun things to do in the area.
One place we highly recommend visiting (while you aren’t out fishing!) is Moody Garden. There is an aquarium, museum, rainforest zoo, and more! It’s the perfect place to spend some time with the kids, while also having wonderful dining options for a fun date night.
Book Your Trip on a Fishing Charter!
If you are looking for a fun day out on the water during your spring vacation catching some of the best fish in the world, a fishing charter in Galveston, Texas is the right choice for you! At Wave Dancer Charters, we offer an all-inclusive experience. We provide you with not only a boat with a fantastic captain, but also rods and reels, tackle, baits/lures, ice for the fish, and water for when you get thirsty. Once we get back to the dock, we’ll help to clean the outstanding fish you caught and prep them for your trip home.
Our captains know all the top spots and what to look for when catching sheepshead, black drum, and other great fish. All you have to worry about is showing up on time, and bringing your family, Texas Saltwater Fish License (day pass is okay), and all of your essentials for the day (sunscreen, food, camera, seasickness medication, etc.). If you would like a full list of what you should bring, let us know. If you want to bring beer that’s fine. Just make sure it is of the canned variety.
We look forward to taking you out on the water, where you can catch some big fish and create memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
