Fishing on the Texas Gulf Coast
The Gulf Coast at Surfside Beach is known for its excellent bay and offshore fishing. Offshore, the depth of the water changes dramatically. This deep water habitat attracts many varieties of fish such as red snapper, ling, bonita, and kingfish.

Natural bottom structure, coral reefs, and offshore oil platforms provide a perfect underwater world for fish to thrive. Surfside Beach is the headquarters for many charter and party boats of all sizes. Experienced captains make a day's fishing where catching the big ones is an exciting and enjoyable activity. Inshore wade fishing, bank fishing, or fishing off the long jetty allow anglers without a boat the chance to tie into flounder, redfish, or speckled trout. Just north lies Christmas Bay and San Luis Pass, offering bay boaters miles of prime shoreline and deeper channels to explore. Launch from Surfside Beach and head to the jetties or venture offshore. Numerous bait and tackle stores can supply live bait, lures, and fishing equipment and offer advice on where to catch fish.
