I haven't had luck in years. I was wondering if anybody could give me any info on some great fishing spots. I do most of my fishing on piers and don't have a boat. Freeport, Galveston, Kemah, Surfside, anything???

I usually go to that huge pier in Galveston on the seawall and to San Luis Pass.

Any help and advice greatly appreciated, thanks!!!

Also, I live in Houston. How do I get to Roll Over Pass from here?

I m kinda new to the fishing thing myself, but the idea that galveston is "dirty" is more of an urban legend than fact.

The waters in galveston are easily muddied(is that a word?) up during windy days because of the loose dirt and junk off the bottom of the gulf.
The seaweed that washes up doesn't help either, but i think that's more seasonal than a constant.

That's why people go bonkers when in the surf is calm and there is little-to-no wind, it settles the dirt and brings in that nice green color, resulting in more fish!

Of course, you can't ignore the fact that it may be polluted because of all the refineries in our area, but I think it's chemically-based (no-color) as opposed to just oil floating in the gulf.

Maybe others more educated in that area can contribute, but I don't think there's been an oil spill in our gulf in the last 20-30 years, if not longer.

This is all, of course, my humble opinon and observation.
