Whether you prefer pier fishing or angling from a boat, Galveston Bay offers something for everyone. That’s part of the reason why the waterfront lots at Laguna Harbor on Galveston Bay are popular with fisherman and those who appreciate the seafaring way of life. Not only do these waterfront canal lots offer immediate access to some of the best fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, but the entire community was designed to maximize the residents’ enjoyment of Galveston Bay and the surrounding waters. To help you have a successful haul, here’s a look at some of the best fishing spots around Galveston and Bolivar Peninsula.

Galveston Bay


Although not as large or well-stocked as the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston Bay is often much calmer, which means a more relaxing and enjoyable fishing trip. The Bay’s calm waters also means you can fish from smaller boats that you might not feel comfortable taking out into the Gulf or further. There are also dozens of beaches and sandy bottom sites around the Bay that can make your fishing trip enjoyable for the entire family. You can expect to catch redfish, flounder and speckled trout in Galveston Bay, among many other species that call it home.


Piers and Jetties

There are many jetties and fishing piers around Galveston Bay that provide ample room for shore angling. Seawolf Park is home to one of the most popular fishing piers on Galveston Bay, offering up some of the best flounder fishing on the Upper Texas Gulf Coast.


The Gulf Of Mexico

Fishing Yacht

Of course any avid fisherman who moves into a seaside home in Galveston won’t want to miss the excitement and adventure to be had in the Gulf of Mexico. Kingfish, snapper, and even shark are abundant within 30 miles of shore. A helpful tip: spend a little time around the oil rings and you might come across schools of tuna.


Blue Water

If your boat can handle it, go about 100 miles out for some of the most challenging sport fishing anywhere in the world. Serious anglers can try their luck (and test their will) battling white and blue marlin weighing hundreds of pounds.
