Fishing in February can be extremely rewarding, and action packed with a big variety of fish species when weather windows allow. Action packed Fishing Reports are very common in Galveston and Freeport during this month. February 2018 has been no different. During this time of year, there are a variety of weather conditions that our Freeport Fishing Guides deal with. The usual – wind, thunderstorms and rain… February also has many foggy days we deal with. We have had our share of rescheduled trips this month, but the days that are good… Freeport and Galveston Fishing is GREAT! Clear skies, temperatures in the mid 70’s, increasing water temperatures and hungry fish are some typical days here on the Texas Gulf Coast. Speckled Trout, Red Fish, Bay Snapper, Bull Reds, Black Drum, and flounder are bowing our rods and filling our boxes.
This past weekend we had Anthony and his crew on board, and they added some great catches to our Freeport Fishing Report. Weather cooperated, and many fish hit the deck. Anthony and crew started the day out targeting some great eating fish in 8 – 12 foot of water. Live shrimp was the bait of choice, and exactly what the fish were hungry for. Speckled Trout, Red Fish and Bay Snapper were the primary targets, and made their way to taking ‘Ice Naps’! After some great tasting fish filled the cooler, it was time to try to find the Big Black Drum for some fierce battles. This they did and caught numerous huge drum to over 28 pounds. This is a great time of year to catch a variety of fish in Freeport and Galveston. The Bay Snapper have begun their annual migration to our passes for the spawn. This is a great time to target the great tasting fish and enjoy some lite tackle fun. The spawn will last throughout the month of March and make our Spring Break Freeport Fishing action packed.
Luis and his buds had a great day also this past week. Their main focus was speckled trout, redfish, flounder, and Baysnapper. Some very good tide movement, nice water clarity, and good bait activity were key elements to the awesome bag of fish they iced down. Fishing in 7 to 14 foot of water using live shrimp under popping corks was exactly what the doctor ordered! These guys did a great job, and had some excellent table fare to show for their efforts.
We are very excited about our Spring Time Freeport Fishing. This is an extremely fun time of year to get kids and families out on the water with our Galveston and Freeport Fishing Guides.
