Fishing in the channel and Gulf of Mexico is excellent year round. The ship channel offers migrating fish a highway in and out of the bay and estaury system to the Gulf of Mexico. Spring and Fall often have large schools of redfish, flounder, black drum, croaker and other species moving through the channel.

Summer time fishing offers catches of tarpon, king mackeral, shark, redfish, trout, species of snapper, flounder, sheephead, gaftop, an occasional snook and other species. In the winter months generally redfish, black drum, trout, flounder and shark are caught. If you like to catch your own bait, throwing a cast net can be productive here also. The University of Texas Marine Science is located next to the jetty. The visitor center is free of charge and offers aquarium exhibits of sea life from the surrounding area.
