Pine Gulley Park
Just curious, what is the closest place to Pine Gulley Park to get live bait? I have never fished there but my neighbor tells me it is easy an easy trip from Sugar land.

The park is off of Toddville rd in Seabrook. For bait you might try 3 amigos fuel dock in the Seabrook ship yard, Anton on this board works there he can tell you the hours. There is also a bait shop on the Seabrook side of the bridge down past Pappadeauxs.

Linda's at Sylvan Beach in Laporte has live shrimp and dead bait. Call first to make sure they have live if that is what you are after.

That pier gets crazy crowded with imigrants on the weekend. You should see all the people suddley pack up to go when a game warden walks the planks and they do
come there.
The inside corners of the t-head are very good for flounder.

going to galveston or texas city is faster ,and better, get on fery without a car and fish the other side 24/7 lighted and nice

Terry G. 08-09-2007 06:07 AM

I go to pine gully quite a bit, (do not go during the week ends, just too crowded) and getting bait from Linda's at Sylvan Beach in Laporte is more expensive than most other places, but if there pier is open its "much" longer than pine gully but I like pine gully better for during the week.

almost any place any more is crowded on the weekends, believe me.
another place I like to go is "18th pier" in San Leon/Baycliff.

Linda's is high, but it is also convenient (go figure). Pretty easy in and out. I have lived in LaPorte all my life and would not fish Sylvan Beach Pier, a lot of hours and minimal fish. But any of the other pier between Sylvan Beach and Seabrook I have had luck on. The one good thing about Sylvan beach is that it has rails, good for kids to fish.

Terry G. 08-09-2007 07:55 AM

i agree but in my opinion the pier was not made for a active fisher-person and have seen lots of people hang up bad on the walk way supports that stick out so far.

i am medically retird and so i ride a scooter but some times i can walk a bit, one week end wife and i were just out driving around and we stoped there and was just going to walk out a bit and look at the water.

we had two guys hussle us off and was told under no conditions could we "even walk out on the pier" unless we payed the 4 or so bucks "each", being a crusty old fart i told em to kiss that little brown spot on me.........

Bigdaddy101 08-09-2007 08:19 AM

Terry, If you are a resedent of LaPorte, there is another park right down the road from Sylvan Beach that is a lot more private and has a pier also. It is next to Happy Harbor. Once again though, not much for fishing, but a good place to enjoy the view of the bay. Every once and a while a red or black drum will be caught out there, and maybe a few sheep head, but that's about it.

Terry G. 08-09-2007 09:39 AM

been there (not a resedent thought), but what i saw ( we snuck in) was people catchin specks out the butt, and some cownose rays, drum and sheephead, i was using dead shrimp and getting specks, ok not a lot but still.

thanks for the info( you know if you are a resedent you can take people who are not resedents) to fish there..

chickenlips'n'snailhips 08-09-2007 10:54 AM
