 So it has been a long time since I have posted on here. Lol I will be posting some Galveston fishing reports and maybe a few articles and videos on this blog from this point forward. I hope you enjoy the info. and continue to check it out from time to time. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and then I will give you a fishing report. My name is Capt. Alan Pereyra and I have been a professional Galveston Fishing Guide for the past 23 years. The name of my service is Topp Dogg Fishing Guides and my brother and I have run it since the year 2000.

 We have worked hard over the years to establish a successful fishing service and have been very blessed. We offer private guided Galveston fishing charters and  Galveston fishing trips  for up to 4 anglers on all the Galveston Bays. We mainly target speckled trout, red fish and flounder, but we also catch some nice drum, sheepshead and seasonal species throughout the year. We fish 7 days a week except for certain holidays. You are welcome to give us a call anytime or check out our website.

 Ok as for fishing, it has been a strange year so far. Spring was very good, but this summer has been a little too inconsistent. The weather hasn't been the best for us and that is the main reason. It got very hot earlier than usual this year and the winds have not really laid. We have had a south west wind for over a month and that isn't good for us. It blows out the water and our water level or tides have been low.

 I have seen it all as a Galveston Bay fishing guide in my 23 years and I am hoping for all this to change soon and get back to our traditional great summer time fishing. Mother nature has a way of working things out and I believe we just need to get some south east wind days so it can clean up the water.

 We have been using live croaker drifting over shell in West Bay for our best results. When the weather has cooperated, we have been catching some nice healthy speckled trout and a few red fish. The bite has been pretty good early in the morning and also here and there throughout the day we will find a good school of trout and wack them.

 Like I said we are having some good to great days on the good weather days and it's been a little slower on the windier days. I want to thank all my customers that have fished with us lately and I hope you enjoyed the report and the ones to follow. Until next time, I will see you on the water.

Thanks Capt. Alan

Your Galveston Bay Fishing Report this week is simple. Good or great weather equals good or great fishing. Sounds simple, but it is so true. This time of the year the weather can determine if you have a good, great or bad day on the water. Spring can be tough at times because of all the fronts, high pressure & especially changes in wind direction. The good news is you can still box some nice fish if you know where to go according to all this issues. That's where your experience & knowledge comes in handy. Fishing isn't rocket science, but there is more skill involved in catching fish. As for our past 2 weeks, fishing was good to excellent. Last week before the big weather change, we were catching limits to near limits on most outings. At the beginning of this week the bite was better in the afternoon. I headed to a different area on Thursday & Matt & Mark caught over 45 trout. We ended up keeping 16. Lots of specks between 14 & 15 inches. The beginning of this week looks bad with high winds & rain in the forecast, but the end of the week & the weekend look good. We are still using live shrimp under a cork. Probably in early May we will start using live croaker. As for locations go, I have been hearing some good reports from all over. West Bay, East Bay & some shorelines are producing good trout. It is going to continue to better as we approach the summer months. I want to thank all our customers over the past 2 weeks. My brother & I have had some great trips & even better clients. Until next time, see you on the water.

 I hope all of you had a happy Easter and great Spring Break. Even though the weather didn't cooperate too well with us as far as fishing is concerned, we still had some great trips & we had lots of fun. Galveston Bay fishing can be a bit inconsistent for bay outings during the Spring time. This is because the wind & rain seem to be a weekly occurrence. Like I always say in my Galveston Bay fishing reports, "Give us good weather & we can give you good fishing!" Now we still had some great trips, especially at the jetties. The north & south jetties have been producing limits of sheephead, redfish & drum. The jetties can be a great alternative this time of the year. As the weather settles down & the water warms up, the speckled trout will be more consistent. I look for a really good trout & redfish year this year. We had a mild winter & the rains we have been getting should school the specks up in certain areas of the bays. We are still using live shrimp under a MidCoast cork for our bay outings & live shrimp with a slip weight at the jetties. The key for fishing the jetties is getting close to the rocks & using the proper size weight according to the current. If you can't get close to the rocks, try a heavier weight & fish straight down to avoid getting hung up. When fishing is tough in the bays searching for specks, try to find the cleanest water & pop those corks. I want to thank all our clients that went out with us over Spring Break & this past week. Fishing only gets better & better as we approach summer, so if you would like to book or reserve a trip give me a call at 832-606-0844. Until next time, see you on the water.

Galveston Fishing Report 3-7-16

Galveston Fishing Report  On Friday my brother Capt. Steven took out a real good customer of ours Mark Marvin and his 2 friends Randy & Isreal. Mark has gone out with me & Steven on multiply occasions over the past couple of years. Needless to say he has had some excellent outings. Steven said they were the 1st boat to head out and at the 1st spot, they started catching some specks. All 3 of them were catching some trout & the action was good. They were catching some good keeper trout along with some throw backs. After a couple of hours of fishing, that spot got a bit crowded and Steven made a move to another area. After trying 2 more spots and trying to catch some redfish, they decided to head in. The redfish weren't cooperating on this day. Again Mark had another great day on the water and Randy & Isreal really enjoyed it too. They ended up boxing 24 nice trout. They were using live shrimp under some MidCoast corks. Drifting open areas worked best.
 This week looks questionably for fishing. Some thunderstorms are forecasted for Tuesday & Wednesday. The wind forecast is not favorable either. Hopefully we can get out by Thursday or Friday. I will keep you informed. Well until next time, see you on the water.

Galveston Bay Fishing Report 2-2-16

Galveston Bay Fishing Report:  On Saturday my brother Steven took Kyle & Doc out. At the 1st spot Kyle & Doc stated catching some trout. They had to throw back some undersized one's but they ended up keeping 15 trout. They also had fun catching some redfish and a huge sheephead. Steven said they had a great time on the water. On Tuesday I took James & David out and they really had one of those days that anglers dream about. For the 1st couple of hours they were catching trout after trout. We had 5 specks that were over 21 inches. We left the trout biting after their 20 fish limit and went searching for some redfish. It took awhile, but James finally hooked into a 26 inch red and then after missing a few fish he caught a 27 inch red. After about 30 minute David got into the action catching a 29 inch red. After a couple more bites, we decided to headed in. On both trips we were using live shrimp under a cork. Seems like the more they would pop that cork, the more bites they would get. We are starting to get busy with calls & bookings, so if you would like to get out on the water please give us a call. The fishing from here on out will just get better as the water starts to warms up. Until next time, see you on the water.

Welcome Back

I everyone! I haven't posted on this blog since Jan 2012. A lot of reasons why, but the bottom line is I will be posting on here on a regular basis. I know there are a lot of other social media sites now days and I post on them too, but if you want up to date fishing reports for the Galveston Bay area then you can follow this blog. I will be posting Galveston Bay fishing reports, pictures & videos on here. I am also in the process of hosting a video & eventually a TV show. I will post some 30-40 minute long shows with some of my clients & sponsors. That is in the works, but as far as fishing I will be posting from now on. I want to thank all of you in advance for following this blog & all the support & good words I get from my readers. I hope you enjoy all the post. As far as a fishing report right now, we are going to begin out Spring time fishing. During March & April we start our Spring Break trips. We offer jetty trips for anglers that want that non stop action. We target redfish, drum & sheephead. We also offer our trout & redfish bay trips too, with the weather changes we just want to give our customers a good chance to catch lots of fish. If the weather cooperates trout fishing can be really good in March & April and the redfish, drum & sheephead can be abundant at the jetties. My brother and I took his sons Joshua & Joseph out this past Saturday for a quick trip before we get really busy. The weather was great and the fishing was even better. They had a great time on the water. At the 1st spot we fished they caught lots of speckled trout. Between the 2 of them they caught over 25 trout. They were catching lots of specks between 14 & 15 inches, which we released. After the trout bite slowed, we went looking for some redfish. We fished a favorite redfish spot and they caught about 8 total reds with 2 of them being keepers. They also caught some sheephead & a few small drum. On the way back to the dock we decided to fish for trout again and they caught another 6-7 trout. It was a great day on the water with family! We were using live shrimp under a cork. The better fish were close to the bottom. If you would like to get out on the water and get in on all this action, please give me a call. Until next time, see you on the water.

Fishing Report and More 1-5-12

It's hard to believe that it is already 2012. My brother and I want to thank everyone that booked a trip with us in 2011. We hard some great trips and caught alot of fish. I keep hearing that the fish population in the Galveston Bays are down, yet year after year we keep catching more and more trout and reds. I'm looking forward towards another great and productive year in 2012. I haven't posted a fishing report lately because I had lower unit issues. It took longer than expected to get it replaced. I did get a few trips in before the new year with mixed results. The morning bite was real slow for us. The afternoon bite was much better, the trout seemed to be feeding when the water warmed up. I have been fishing up north, although West Bay has produced some good trout and reds. Using soft plastics and live shrimp under a cork has worked best. I will be sharing a booth with some other guides at Reliant starting on Friday and ending on next Sunday the 14th. If you get a chance come by and visit with us. I do have some openings for the next couple of weeks and we are running a winter time fishing special so give us a call if you want to get out and catch some fish! Until next time see you on the water.
