Blue areas indicate high and low tides. The center shows the current moon phase which is a Full Moon. According to the Solunar Theory, today is a good day for fishing, but you need to cross check this with the current weather forecast for a final decision. Currently we have a minor fishing time. The next best fishing time will be tomorrow. The gray time indicator displays the current local time.

Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 01:12 pm. Today we have 12:7 hours of daylight. For shallow water fishing the twilight periods are often the most productive fishing times, especially on days when a major or minor time will coincide with twilight. In low light conditions predators have better cover for their ambush and often hunt in shallow water.

Next New Moon in 16 days on 6th September
Full Moon is generally a productive time for fishing - especially night fishing. Bright nights mean that many predators feed more actively during the night. During full moon the gravitational pull is in line with the gravitational pull of the sun, affecting all wildlife and increasing feeding behaviour.
  • Distance to earth:
    398,050 km
    Proximity:
    18 %
We can compare the current moon distance to it's minimum and maximum distance from earth and express that as proximity. A high proximity means the moon is closer to earth. At 50% it would be at it's mean distance. A high proximity causes big tides, currents and has a direct effect on increased bite times. A proximity greater than 90% indicates a super moon.

Tides for Fishing
The Tideclock displays the tide status and the hours until the next tide. Currently the tide is falling and the next low tide is in 3 hours and 18 minutes.
Tide Times Wed, 22 Sep:
Tide Time Height
high 05:42 am 1.44 ft
low 11:36 am 0.72 ft
high 06:18 pm 1.61 ft

Tide Coefficient at 05:42 is 96
Tide Coefficient at 18:18 is 116

For fishing, stronger tides are often favourable as they cause stronger currents and more motion on the sea bed. The above tidal coefficients give us an indication of how strong the tides are compared to their average. A value over 90 indicates very strong tides, known as spring tides. A low value indicates weak tides, known as neap tides. The tidal coefficient can range from 20 to 120 with a mean value of 70. A higher number usually indicates better fishing.
7 Day Fishing Weather
The weather plays an important role in fishing. Wind strenght and direction often determine where you can fish and where fish might be holding. Although high pressure is usually good for fishing, steep pressure changes often trigger feeding frenzies and are great times for fishing. Of course temperature has also a strong effect on fishing and comfort on the water. So make sure to cross check the weather forecast with the solunar fishing times to determine the best times to go fishing.

Best Fishing Spots in the greater Galveston area

Wharf's or Jetties are good places to wet a line and meet other fishermen. They often produce a fresh feed of fish and are also great to catch bait fish. As they are often well lit, they also provide a good opportunity for night fishing. There are 2 wharf(s) in this area.

South Jetty - 9km , North Jetty - 10km

Beaches and Bays are ideal places for land-based fishing. If the beach is shallow and the water is clear then twilight times are usually the best times, especially when they coincide with a major or minor fishing time. Often the points on either side of a beach are the best spots. Or if the beach is large then look for irregularities in the breaking waves, indicating sandbanks and holes. We found 26 beaches and bays in this area.

East Beach - 5km , Greens Bayou - 5km , Offatts Bayou - 6km , Sydnor Bayou - 8km , Campeche Lake - 9km , Campbell Bayou - 11km , Ganas Bayou - 12km , Gangs Bayou - 12km , Jones Bay - 12km , Beacon Bayou - 13km , Oxen Bayou - 13km , West Beach - 14km , Bermuda Beach - 15km , Mentzel Bayou - 15km , Bolivar Beach - 16km , Eckert Bayou - 16km , Johnson Bayou - 16km , West Bay - 16km , Pirates Beach - 17km , Dollar Bay - 18km , Highland Bayou Diversion Channel - 18km , Palm Beach - 18km , Pirates Beach Marina - 18km , Oak Bayou - 19km , Silo Bayou - 19km , Butterowe Bayou - 20km

Harbours and Marinas can often times be productive fishing spots for land based fishing as their sheltered environment attracts a wide variety of bait fish. Similar to river mouths, harbour entrances are also great places to fish as lots of fish will move in and out with the rising and falling tides. There are 9 main harbours in this area.

Port of Galveston - 1km, Galveston Yacht Basin Marina - 3km, The Landings of Galveston Marina - 6km, Payco Marina - 7km, Texas City Dike Marina - 8km, Teakwood Marina - 10km, Bolivar Yacht Basin Marina - 17km, Moses Lake Marina - 18km, Pirates Beach Marina - 18km
