Offshore fishing out of Galveston is a chance at some world class angling. Kingfish, dorado, ling, red snapper, shark, and triple tail are our most common catches.

Through bass fishing, tournament bass fishing, and saltwater fishing along the Texas Gulf Coast I have reached extreme levels of awareness. Tournament fishing seems to elevate my awareness more than any other type of fishing. Once a person can stay “in the flow” or in “the zone” anything is possible. There are many definitions and perceptions of the term awareness. For the purpose of this article awareness is your ability to get comfortable enough with your surroundings that your mind takes over and has absolutely zero distractions and you fish in “the zone”...Read More
