If you’re looking for an angling adventure that’ll leave you with a great story to tell, come try your hand at hooking the King Mackerel Galveston’s waters have to offer! Known locally as “Kingfish,” it may not be the biggest fish around, but thanks to its tenacity at the end of a line, it’s definitely one of the most fun to catch. Galveston provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, where Kingfish love to lurk. Where better to start your adventure?
 

What to Expect

King Mackerel is a great target for brand new anglers, families, and experienced fishermen alike. If you’re just discovering your sea legs, captains recommend joining them on board a half day charter, where you’ll be able to target the waters just a few miles from shore. This makes Mackerel fishing a great choice for families looking for an adventure that their little ones can enjoy – you’ll spend less time traveling, and more time casting off!
 
For more experienced fishermen, the nearshore reefs and wrecks are beckoning. You’ll find bigger variations of Kingfish here, which means a harder fight! Charter captains will generally have you trolling for your catch, and you’ll travel around 20–30 miles from shore to reach the most productive fishing grounds. Opt for a full day trip to make the most of these waters, and hit your limit of Kingfish.
 

How to Prepare

Galveston charter captains understand that visitors expect quality fishing gear to be included in their trips. Water and ice are also usually provided. Your fishing license won’t be covered, however, so make sure you purchase this beforehand. King Mackerel fishing in Galveston will give you plenty to write home about, so come and discover it for yourself!

Dress appropriately. In the morning, it's a bit chilly so bring a sweatshirt or sweater.

Familiars yourself with your fishing location and make sure you tip them. Jerry and Brian the Deck Hand work their butts off and I tipped them more than my budget allowed. When you get good work pay them accordingly.

This was our first time fishing in Galveston. We caught the biggest fish I've ever caught. I would highly recommend it. You'll have a great time and priceless memories. My only regret this trip is that we didn't catch anything we could keep and eat, but I'll make a meal of those pictures and bragging rights for atleast a year.?

September can be spotty in this area depending on Temps, currents, wind and moon phase. Be sure you book with the right charter to ensure a good time. Fishing addiction definitely took care of us.

Let your Captain know exactly what you want when you board. If you want inshore for an hour or two and then shark for the rest, he’ll accommodate. Great trip!

Watch the weather. It was really windy and the wind had the water all churned up and muddy. Fish were not biting as well as they maybe would have otherwise.

I would reccomend to first timer fishers to take a fishing guide trip or go to a fishing pier and ask plenty of questions! Its the ocean, much different than fresh water. Its good to be informed!
