It’s been some years since my childhood friend, Ryan Huffman and I fished together. As kids, whenever we had a chance to get out on Galveston Bay to catch some keepers, we were there! So, when he came into town this week, and reports started flooding in of trout bites and catches, I knew we had to get back on Galveston Bay to catch some keepers.
Ryan, his son, Blake, Captain Juan, and I left the dock before 6am on Tuesday, and we headed to the wells, and let’s just say it was a busy morning on the boat! We caught a variety of fish and about 50 speckled trout at eight different wells! Most of them, though, were under 15 inches and had to be thrown back. We ended up with 12 keepers. The moral of the story, though? The trout are here, and it’s a great time to get out there and catch some!
Here are a few tips for you:
Take advantage of the good fishing this week. You can catch our sought after Speckled Trout, but you can also fill your boat with drum, sheepshead, and redfish, which have all been caught in a decent abundance this summer. That’s what we did when we fished with my friend, Ryan, and he and his son went home with enough fish for a huge fish fry for his entire family.
