Red snapper are historically the most sought after fish in the snapper category and on Galveston offshore fishing trips. They can grow over thirty pounds, and, like most reef fish, are determined fighters. Red snapper are plentiful in the waters offshore Galveston but are subjected to strict regulations imposed by fisheries managers so our snapper fishing trips sell out fast.
The major challenge to red snapper fishing in this highly regulated environment in Galveston is finding lightly pressured concentrations of larger fish. They are cooperative biters, and we have hundreds of good snapper spots offshore Galveston which receive relatively light pressure. We also routinely use larger baits & live bait in order to attract the larger fish.
Our boat is spectacularly equipped for catching large red snapper off of Galveston. With top of the line fish finders and navigational equipment, we get to our fishing spots in a hurry and can range further in a day than most other boats. Our captains have decades of experience fishing in these waters which allow us to put our customers on the fish, and usually top off a successful snapper fishing trip with bonus fish such as amberjack, cobia, king mackerel and many more species.
Red snapper are premier table fare. We will make sure your catch is well cared for, cleaned and packaged after your fishing trip.
