Where can I get information on galveston fishing party boats?

You can certainly access the internet through any search engine and find a treasure trove of information on Galveston party boats. There are certainly many to choose from, though most offer similar fishing experiences. A party boat is basically a cheap alternative to chartering a boat. Fees for party boats range from $40 to $75 compared to $400 to $600 for a private charter. The downside of fishing a party boat is that you will be sharing a boat with as many as fifty to sixty other fishermen. Snags are common when fishing party boats and the experience is certainly not as positive as it would be on a charter. Most party boats fish over a reef or sometimes near a shipwreck that holds fish. You can catch just about anything in these areas. I have fished party boats and caught over ten different kinds of fish with a couple hours. You can pull up a small snapper one minute and the next a fifty pound grouper or shark using the same bait. If you have not tried one before you are in for a much different experience than you are used to. I suggest bringing your own rod and reel if you fish a party boat. It is vital that you have a stout rod and a reel with a lot of power. When fishing the reef you need to instantly pull a large fish off the bottom. If you do not the fish will surely use the reef to break your line. Most party boats provide the terminal tackle such as weights, leaders and hooks.
