We are approaching the time of year when fresh water fishing in Galveston and surrounding counties starts peaking. Late winter and early spring are prime times for fishing the many small lakes, creeks and stock tanks in our area.

It is spawning time for most of the freshwater fish like black bass, crappie, white bass and others. The weather tends to be more pleasant than in the summer and it also comes at a time when saltwater fishing is in its worst period of the year.
