Grab your gear and get ready to reel ’em in at the Galveston Fishing Rodeo in October or the Fall Flounder Classic this November & December!
Hosted and coordinated by the Galveston Professional Boatmen’s Association, these two inaugural tournaments cast light on the amazing surf & off-shore fishing we get to experience here on Galveston Island!
The Galveston Fishing Rodeo runs from September 28 at 6:30 p.m. to October 28 at 5:00 p.m in the Galveston Yacht Basin. With inshore & offshore divisions and over $10,000 in winnings and prizes, there’s something for everyone in this inaugural tournament that’s open to private boats as well as guided anglers.
Inshore: Bull redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel & Gaftop Catfish.
Offshore: Kingfish, Ling (Cobia), Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), Greater Amberjack, & Mangrove Snapper
The entry fee for the Galveston Fishing Rodeo open angler (boat or shore fishing) is $30, while the guided division fee is $100. Weigh-ins happen at the Galveston Yacht Basin Bait & Tackle on North Holiday Drive.
The 2018 Fall Flounder Classic kicks off November 2 at 6:30 a.m. and runs through December 30, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. – that’s 8 weeks to find the most fabulous flounder out there, or just enjoy frying, roasting, or grilling all of your runner-ups! 😉 All anglers are welcome! Spend the day shore fishing along our 32 miles of beaches, hanging out on the pier or jetties along Seawall Blvd., or bring your boat and enjoy the open water! Giveaways & drawings in addition to the top prize are really just a bonus to the delicious reward of catching & cooking up this coastal favorite! (After weigh-ins, of course!)
Entry fees for the Fall Flounder Classic are $30 for open anglers & $100 for the guides division. Prizes for each category are different!
