Galveston, Texas fishing questions?

always try to fishing at Galveston. anyone knows good spot to fishing? do I need a fishing license? and I dun have any fishing equipments, can I rent it or i must buy them? if I can rent where are the spots at Galveston? whats the best time for fishing? day or night? if at night, is it there any houses for us to rent overnight or airbnb will do? I was staying in a house right on the beach it was really nice, but those happened when I was little and during a summer camp.

I assume you're fishing off the bank.

Seawolf Park would be a good start for you, and Texas City Dike. And yes, you gotta buy your gear... Get an Ugly Stick with a Zebco 202.. Hook, weight, and shrimp. Go to Seawolf Park and have fun!

You can fish 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Ideally though, you want to fish early morning or late evening.

If you got to Seawolf I'm sure there are some half way decent people there that would be more than willing to help you out!

And yes you have to buy a fishing license.. Just a get a one year saltwater license, or might as well get the one year all water license if you plan on fishing more

And when you catch one of these (you're pretty much guranteed too) don't just grab it like any fish or you'll be having a hell of day. Look up videos on how to hold hardhead catfish.

I've been fishing 20 years and no matter what people say or think, I refuse to touch them things. And that goes for freshwater cats too

You could try the Galveston piers, pretty easy to fish and you will probably catch something.

61st street pier used to have rod and reel rental. I haven't been there in a long time though You will still need a license though.

You could also try Gulf Coast Pier

Theres tons of walk in fishing options.. but I think for you right now SeaWolf or the Jetties or one of the piers would be a good option for you to try for Bull Reds. Cut mullet or cracked crab on no 5-6 circle. Gear wise you can use some freshwater stuff.. a 6500 Abu Garcia with 20lb mono and a 30 lb leader and a med heavy bass rod. There's really no need to get a bunch of new gear for a once a year trip.

Man card revoked!!!!

I did Big Brothers & Sisters back in the 80s. One of the group activities was to take about 20 of the kids in the program and their big brothers out on a party boat to fish. They anchored off the edge of Feanor Flats and caught nothing but hardheads on dead shrimp. I was only guy other than the two deck hands who knew what they were doing and pulled at least a hundred hardheads off of hooks that day. Trick is coming from the underside. Got poked once that day. Rubbed some hardhead slime on it and then cleaned it well for a couple of days. Some dull pain but nothing to wuss out about.

Again, man card or not, I ain't doing it. I've been hit 3 times and no more! I know it's all operator error, but me grabbing one and getting hit again doesn't constitue for me to try!
