Went Monday 05/28/2012 to Galveston East Bay and did a little fishing on the boat.  The wind was still cranking and the water color was off.  But my husband did catch a REALLY nice speckled trout!  We were fishing with live shrimp under a popping cork. The rest of us didn’t catch a thing!

Galveston Fishing Report 09/24/2011 Stopped by Smitty’s on our way by to pick up some bait.  We should have just drove right on by!  They gave us some really old, frozen bait.  That was to be the down fall of our trip. We left out of the Galveston Yacht Basin and headed for the South […]
