San Luis Pass Fishing Pier
One of the most popular and record-breaking fishing spots on the Gulf Coast, this pier stretches out 1200 feet into San Luis Pass, the point where several bays and lakes empty into the Gulf of Mexico. The well-kept bait house at the lighted pier also features air-conditioning, restrooms and a snack bar. Whether you are a serious angler or just fishing for fun, this pier is the place to drop your line.
First started going to the pass in 1968. Same year four brother drowned at the pass. One brother tried to save one another and all four perished. Fished the pier many,many nights st0arting in 68. Fishing was great, water was beautiful, all types of folks with whatever gear they could get to their favorite spot. At that time there was no cost just to go out on the pier if you weren't fishing. Waded the pass on the Galveston side. Flounder under the bridge in the fall, spanish mackerel in summertime, and specs in the morning. Giged flounder at nite on the bay side. Got bait at Rooster's Those were the days !!!. The Flagship . The Flagship also had its moments. Anybody remember Burger Chef on the seawall and all the bait camps on the south jetty . Boats and shrimpers were thier because there was plenty of water to launch there too.
It was a great location to catch fish and other salt water creatures! I think everybody needs to sign a petition to force them to rebuild it........... not everybody can afford to go deep water fishing, and this pier was the closest thing to it... the galveston bay draines right past it and the currents flow right through it too....
I liked the spaciousness of the pier, the parking and the price. I was always able to catch fish there when I went. I traveled to San Luis Pass Pier very often and caught speckled trout, whiting, red fish, blue fish, and sting rays as well as hammerheads. It was always fun and you never knew what was going to bite your line. What I disliked was after they rebuilt the pier after a hurricane and before IKE was that they were restricted to water/restroom facilities on the pier by the county/city regulations. My biggest dislike is that the pier hasn't been rebuilt. I miss it!!!
The Pass was the best place to fish in the fall period...And one of the best things about the pier was their hot freshly made burgers when ever you wanted one! Dam I miss this place..I have been to a lot of fishing piers and nothing compares to the pass, The staff was awesome and i always caught fish there...I will never forget the 5'6" black tip i caught there and the numerous times i got spooled in the morning....We should get a petition going to get a new pier built ! For Real PEEPS !!!!!!
I loved the San Luis fishing pier. It was perfect and the staff was fantastic. Of course politics always ruins everything. The affluent never used the pier, so they don't care. Perry only cares about himself and his mansions (like Saddam); Same with those two republican U.S. Senators, and a republican run state congress. I'd blame it on democrats, but they're not running Texas. It is all politics. First it was no more food because of a previous storm, and now they are not allowed to rebuild because of idiots.
Best place close to Houston to fish. spent many a night there, will miss the pier. Need to replace with rock paved groins with lights for night fishing, each side of pass. great tourist attraction from surronding states.
I was the only female to ever hook a TARPON ! Got it beached and the Tarpon released its own self before getting a pic My twins caught their first fish there. I like watching the hugh angle fish under the peir ! Summer 98
Like the last guy said, the pier will be missed. It was previously destroyed by tropical storms Francis and Allison and rebuilt each time. The last pier was asuper pier, much higher off the ground, but unfortunately Hurricane Ike hit it almost dead on and wiped it off the face of the earth. Thanks to Governor Hair, there will not be another.
