sometimesfisher MOB and Bryan Beach past the shrimper used to get epic for big reds, shark, etc. My PB flounder came out of the mouth. PB red, too. Best shark was on the beach just around the corner from it. But I agree, the stretch hasn't been productive for those species in probably 5 years. Even so, it's still reliable for trout if clarity, wind, temp, etc are reasonable.

When saying the Galvston to Freeport surf is I realll poor for surf fishing I dont know if you mean with the big rods for drum/redfish/sharks or wading fishing for trout or both?



From my experience the surf from Galvestont to Freeport is probably the best area along this part of the Texas coast for wading fishing for trout.



And having San Luis Pass in the middle of stretch helps also.
I was referring to surf fishing with the big rods. That stretch is probably the best in Texas for catching trout.

Garzas23 Tons of great info on here! A cast net for bait is handy. Mullet, croaker and whiting work well, Cut bait will get you a little bit of every species in the surf lol. The common fish finder rig works well in the surf.

TBMatt Best thing to do is spend some time on this board as people like sharkchum and others have several detailed posts to help you out. They share lots of great info.

First time surf fishing

Im heading to Galveston for the weekend, we will be staying just west of Jamaica Beach, so I would like to try fishing on the beach for shark or anything else that will bite. Any recommendations?
