We fished there last weekend for the first time ever. I had never navigated the Galveston waters before, and had no idea where to fish. Thanks to the TFF forum advising me to download the Navionics app, and using its automatic routing functions, I was able to fish 2 days without running aground.
I also bought the TroutSupport DVD series, and did some pre-fishing by planning my fishing locations based on wind and time of year. Tobin was kind enough to spend about an hour on the phone with me validating my initial thoughts on where and how to fish these areas. Well, the results were spectacular on the first day on the water. We just followed the rules and did relatively well, considering it was the first time ever at Galveston. Although we didn't fare as well on the 2nd day because too many boats were out on Saturday and I couldn't navigate around like I wanted to. I will continue to learn these techniques and will get better with more time on the water. Thanks again to Tobin at TroutSupport.com
