Shark fishing off Galveston, Texas is a sport in a class by itself!

There are very few fish that can rip line off a reel any faster than a big Texas Shark.

Shark fishing at times can be outstanding just off the Galveston Island. Large numbers of Blacktip sharks are by far the most targeted. However, encounters with big Bull shark, Tiger shark, and Hammerhead occur each summer.
