Galveston happens to have many beautiful fishing spots to chose from. The two we will discuss today are Galveston Fishing Pier and 61st St. Fishing Pier. All these locations will provide you and your family a variety of fun and entertainment.
Galveston Fishing Pier
9001 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77554
Galveston Fishing Pier is one of the more popular fishing destinations on the island. Here, anglers can catch a variety of fish such as the red snapper, redfish, blacktip shark, etc. Keep in mind it is $10 to fish, but with the ecstatic views and variety of fish to catch, the price is well worth it. What makes this site even better is that it is connected to a restaurant: Jimmy’s on the Pier. So, after a grueling day or railing in fish, you could settle down with some of the amazing seafood that the restaurant provides. If its your first time here, I would recommend trying their Crayfish Caso & a bowl of Clam chowder. Not to mention, their remoulade sauce goes great with just about everything! So, if you’re looking for a place to fish and have a marvelous meal after, the Galveston Fishing Pier is the place to be.
61st St. Fishing Pier

61st St. Fishing Pier is another hotspot for all you fishermen out there. Say you forgot all your equipment.
