Redfish Season is Here!

Redfish in Galveston Texas

Redfish on the prowl.

Fall is the best time of year to go out and fish for Red Drum or Redfish, and this year’s run for the “Bull Reds” has just begun. This season will be a great opportunity for fishing over the coming week through mid to late October here in Texas.

These fish put up a fantastic fight and travel in huge schools! Each year in the Fall, Redfish migrate offshore and reproduce in massive schools by the hundreds and thousands. It is not uncommon to catch 20, 30, or even more in a few hours on a half day Galveston fishing charter.

The reason for the Bull Red Run is because it’s part of a mating ritual. When the mature Redfish move in close to rivers and passes, they go to lay their eggs, which are washed into the inshore bays by the tide. It is in the bays that the eggs hatch and the young fish live the first few years of their lives before moving offshore as mature fish.

Fall is exactly when you want to harvest bull redfish, especially on a Galveston fishing charters. Prepare yourself for huge fish in great numbers, that average anywhere between 30 and 50 pounds aboard our Galveston fishing charter boats.
