Palacios Texas

When looking for a great spot to fish along the gulf coast one great place to Stop and and Visit is Palacios, Texas.  Palacios fishing is the place to go for year round speckled trout and redfish.

Palacios is located right on I-35 between Port Lavaca and Bay City and is on Tres Palacios Bay which is fed by the Tres Palacios River. Turtle Bay is located on its shallower West Side and Coon Bay on its East Side.  The Palacios Ship Channel runs from Palacios across Matagorda to the Intercoastal Waterway.  The Tres Palacios shoreline is rich in fish.

Palacios Fishing

There is a members only marina on the South Bay shoreline which offers slips for larger vessels and covered slips for trailered boats.  There is also a marina on South Bay at Serendipity RV park and a municipal shrimp boat harbor that has some recreational boat slips and a protected boat ramp.  We stayed at Serendipity for over a month and reds were caught almost daily off the nearby pier and rock outings.

Along the bay front there is a paved walkway which connects a number of smooth rock groins and several long wooden piers which offers free public access and that are lighted at night. There are several boat ramps on the South and East Bays with the best of those being at South Point Marina on the South Bay.

The Community Pier on South Bay extends  well over the bay which has a T head at the end where speckled trout can be found.

Anglers launching outside Tres Palacios Bay can follow the ship channel from Matagorda Bay but the bay runs 12 – 14 feet so one can just a easily stay there and fish.

Port O’Connor is more popular spot for many but it is also more expensive and crowded.  Offshore of Port O’Connor  the water depth quickly drops than to the North and such area as East  Breaks, 50 miles offshore, are prime billfish spots. King mackerel and other offshore species can be  caught just off the jetties and red snapper fishing at rigs can be good spots.

Next stop you are fishing along the Texas Gulf Coast why not Stop and Visit Palacios and see just how great the fishing can be.

When fishing Palacios other nearby spots include Port Lavaca and Matagorda Bay.
