October is bull red season. People catch them at 61st and 91st pier. You can use crab, cut mullet, shrimp. if you catch a croaker, you can put that out live.
A fish a day keeps the doctor away.

if you go to the piers, buy a drop net before going if you want to take a pic with your big catch.

Piers are good at low and high tide. Live shrimp or mullet carolina rigged or under a popping cork. Should be able to catch trout, reds, flounder, or croaker. Use a #2 or #3 hook for live bait. 1/2oz-2oz weight to keep bait down on bottom or under cork depending on the current.
You don't need a net as long as you use at least 40 lb test to pull them up or there are others on the piers with nets to help. Bait can be bought all along hwy 45 going to Galveston.
Good luck.
