March is here in Galveston

Capt. Greg Verm
March 4, 2013
Galveston Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Had a couple of trips this weekend with some very challenging conditions. Saturday afternoon we were greeted with extremely low, low, low water - did I mention it was low? Was not sure I could even launch the boat, but I did. The winds were very strong, and therefore did not let the tide come in as it should. Despite the conditions, my customers Adam, his wife Bernice and son CJ did put some nice specks to 23" in the boat along with a couple reds and a lone sheepshead. We were in the back bayous trying to find protected water. Fish came off of live shrimp under popping cork and reds on live mullet. One thing about our marsh trips - we can usually find some protected water to fish, and make the best of windy conditions.

Sunday, I had a two person trip, Charles and Daisy - and was hoping to get into the trout again - but not a single speck... it was a redfish kind of morning. The winds let up, and we were able to catch and release 15 reds on the incoming tide.... yes the bay started to fill back up. Customers only wanted to keep a few fish, and we caught and released the rest including a 33" redfish right at the end of the trip... I love it when the day ends like that. The reds and flounder came off of live shrimp and the 33" red was caught on mullet on the bottom.

These back bayou/marsh trips save the day many times this time of year when conditions make it tough to get out on the open bay or jetties.

We have not been able to get out for gigging trips because of these winds, but when the winds let up - I know there are some very, very nice flounder back in the bay! Maybe that 30" Flatfish will be seen this spring!

Galveston Bay Fishing Forecast:

We will be spending our time during the month of March either fishing the jetties or back in the back lakes and bayous hiding fromt the wind!
