Navigating West Bay/ San Luis Pass

Howdy All,

Dad and I would like to fish West bay more but have not done so in years. We have a 22ft pathfinder and normally like launching from old fat boys or Galveston Bait and Tackle. We don't mind launching at other marinas closer to West bay but we like ability to cover more water from these Marinas.

Does anyone know of any guides who offer navigational trips to show how to safely navigate through west bay from the causeway in your own boat? We don't want any tips/spots we just would like to know how to cover the water safely. We would want to learn even some Chocolate and Christmas bay if possible.

All information and tips are welcome. For grins we just updated to an HDS 12 live on the boat so we have super new electronics.

You might get with Sgrem here on this board. He is a local guide close to Ellington and fishes West Bay.

Sgrem

It's pretty straight forward to navigate once you get it down. If you don't know where you're going though you'll have a bad day, especially in Chocolate.

might look at getting Reef Recon as well as going with either of those guys... Grem is going to be way more available. Reef recon is going to put all the reefs of west and chocolate right onto your GPS unit so you'll know exactly where you are and in a couple cases it shows you the cut through the reefs.
