When vacationing on the southern coast, you’d be crazy not to try your hand at fishing. There are several different terrains to explore, ranging from lagoons to wetlands and tidal basins to back bays. Each area boasts its own assortment of picturesque creatures, but Galveston Bay, in particular, is home to over 150 species of fish. Some days you’ll see a Saw Fish and other days you’ll luck out and see a Spotted Eagle Ray. However, if viewing these creatures is a topic of interest, consider planning a trip to the Galveston Aquarium at our Moody Gardens Hotel. The Aquarium Pyramid is one of the best Galveston, TX, attractions, aside from Galveston fishing. So, it looks like you’ll have to experience both activities and let us know your favorite!
