Memorial Day Weekend is finally here! It’s the unofficial (official) start to summer for Eagle Point Fishing Camp and Waterman’s Harbor, along with everyone who owns a boat and wants to be on Galveston Bay. That being said, we expect lots of traffic on the bay this weekend, and we asked Captain Juan and Captain David to share a few tips to keep you and your loved ones safe.
Memorial Day Weekend is just a week away, and at Eagle Point Fishing Camp, we’re ready to help you prepare your boat for a fun summer season on Galveston Bay. After all, we’re all about fishing made simple, and a part of that is not running into problems! We can’t say enough how important boat maintenance and preparation are to not only have a safe experience on the water but also an enjoyable one.
Here are our four tips to getting your boat ready for Galveston Bay this summer.

We’re excited for you to get your boat ready and head down to Eagle Point Fishing Camp this summer.
May 10th is National Shrimp Day! There is nothing more delicious that cooking up some Galveston Bay shrimp right off the boat, and that's what you can purchase for you and your family at Eagle Point Fishing Camp.

We buy pre-shredded cabbage for garnish, and when I'm in a rush, I purchase the bottled dressing to drizzle on top of our tacos. Our favorites are H-E-B Sriracha Ranch or Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado Dressing, and while the latter is healthier, the first is the real winner!
