Over half way thru November already, and fishing here in Galveston Bay has been great. We are running most of our trips in the Galveston West Bay areas, and having real good success with speckled trout, redfish and flounder. On our half day trips, lately the action has been very fast paced and boating well over 40 to 50 fish! Not all of the fish are making the minimum length requirements, but it sure is still fun to reel all of the fish in! As the water cools down the size of fish will increase. The 18 to 19 inch redfish we are catching will be keeper size by end of December and into January.
There are still plenty of flounder in the marsh and back lakes. I am anticipating a very good December for flounder gigging as well as fishing. Our tides have still not dropped like a typical November usually has. This, in my opinion is very good at this point. As the water temps cool, the fishing will only get better.
We have been making some duck hunts out in Galveston bay, and are gearing up for offering this for our customers. There are still allot of teal around and the larger ducks are showing up - shovelers, gadwalls, widgeons, and pintails. We were even able to call a set of geese in to our duck decoys last week and took a couple speckled bellys.
We have some opening for the week of Thanksgiving, and the fishing will be great if you want to get those kids out on the water for day of catching redfish, speckled trout and flounder.
