I'm new to this forum and am looking for some advice. I am an avid freshwater fishermen and do my fair share of saltwater fishing in Matagorda to. I want to start wade fishing Galveston with some buddies. We have made 2 trips and have come back empty handed both times. I do not have access to a boat so I am wondering if anyone could tell me where some walk in wade spots are and what kind of lures/bait we should use. Any tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Look up Brian McPherson on YouTube! He fishes all over Galveston and catches!

The surf would be my suggestion. When you catch it on a calm day with green water to the beach it can be fantastic. The flats behind rollover Pass is good, San Luis Pass is good, but the current can be treacherous, people drown there every year. The Bolivar Pocket is a great walk in spot.

What kind of bait would you recommend. Live or artificial. If artificial what kind, sand ell jrs, Texas trout killers?

I don't like fooling with live bait. Either of those will work, Mirrodines and softdines work well also.
