Hey guys,

My girlfriend has been bugging me to take her surf fishing for the past couple weeks. I am wanting to just throw some lines out there with some cut bait and sit on the beach and have a few beers. Question is this.....where is the best place to go to get some steady action in or around Galveston/Crystal beach?? I don't really care what we catch, she just wants to fish. (pretty cool huh?) I have some pretty heavy gear so the size of whatever we catch won't really be an issue. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance

if i take the ferry from G to CB how long do i drive before i see the pylons?
Coming from Galveston you can take the last road to the right before you get to the new school (on the right and on piles) the road is Boyt road (about five to ten minutes from the ferry), when you hit the beach turn right and you have a good stretch of beach before you get to the posts.

Sounds like it is going to be a lot of trouble for you. Tell you what, since I am a nice guy, I am willing to help you out by taking her fishing for you. I'll pick her up at your place at say, 6:15 am Saturday morning. Let me know.

Report-

Went out to the jetties in surfside to meet a buddy of mine. Nites were on every cast but the fish were way to small to keep. The majority of the catch was pinfish and whiting. Not too bad for the action but I wanted more.

We then left there to go to the surf off of access rd 4. Again, plenty of action from the sand trout and whiting but no real keepers. I did hook into a fairly large chark that cut my line after a 10 second run. All fish were caught on dead shrimp (I know, I know) Plastic lures weren't working well at all in the afternoon.

She went with me. A buddy of mine was at the jetties fishing and we met him there for a couple of hours.
