Fishing the Texas Coast

Texas has hundreds of miles of coastline and needless to say, the Texas Gulf Coast offers plenty of opportunities for saltwater anglers to fish year round. Fishermen can fish free of charge off rock groins, breakwaters and many other locations along the coast for Flounder, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Sand Trout, Croaker, Whiting, Bull Reds and Gafftop. There are also numerous public piers which charge a small fee. Inshore bay fishing is great year-round for Trout and Redfish. Anglers fishing a few miles offshore can look forward to Shark and Tarpon. Fishing 15 to 40 miles offshore, anglers can catch Kingfish, Snapper, Dorado, Shark and Cobia. From 30 to 80 miles out, prepare to battle Amber Jack, Grouper, Kingfish, Red Snapper, Cobia, Dorado, Sailfish, Tuna and Wahoo as well as Bull, Sand, Hammerhead and Tiger sharks. Traveling 70 to 100 miles, anglers will find Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado and Sailfish.

What's New

We have created a forum community at Texas Gulf Coast Fishing known as the Bait Camp. It will be a family oriented, kid safe community dedicated to saltwater fishing and conservation in the great state of Texas.

Users will be able to post fishing reports, share fishing techniques, talk shop about their equipment, share conservation information, etc. If there is a fishing related category that you'd like to see added to the forum, let us know about it and we'll see what we can do. The Bait Camp can be reached by clicking on the tab on the Navigation Bar above.

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.
