Surfside Expectations for Sat, June 8

Yeah, I know this is quite a ways out. But I don't have a choice in the date...

My brother is bringing my nephew down the weekend of June 8 & 9. We have an offshore trip booked for Sunday (9th), but Saturday we would like to catch some stuff inshore.

Should we try the surf? Has the surf flattened out and turned on yet?


We don't have a boat, but my brother has it in his head he wants to catch crabs and do a crab bake on the beach - is this doable? If so, where should we try to go?

All doable....buuuuuut the surf and winds have been brutal. Hopefully will settle out.

Any popular cleaning table area will be great for crabbing.

Surfside has a nice crab fishing pier area as well. Google it.

There were huge trout caught the last week before the wind settled down think I put a report on. Jetties usually hold pocket of clean water and if tides are strong you can get them. During jeep weekend. I've been not wading the surf this year and hopping rocks. So much nicer not getting beat up and being more mobile and to be able to fish different depths. Go during week to avoid cart crew with the 12' rods an saragosas.

So I take it this is done on the bay side, and not in the open surf, right?

I just hope it's not "combat fishing"... LOL



Ok, another question - my brother has the Ocean Village Motel reserved - but I was late in getting a reservation and they are booked.

Any advice on where to stay (Friday & Saturday)? Where should I NOT stay (ie. Anchor Motel)?

FYI if you plan on getting live shrimp they sell out by 5am at the camps north of 332 bridge.

Where to get bait (both shrimp and croaker) was going to be my next question.

Bait Bridge?



Also - it's been years since I last fished the surf there. Which turn into the beach should I use going from Surfside headed back towards Galveston?
