    My husband and i used to fish in Galveston Bay. It was very nasty. We caught slimy goo on our fishing lines and hooks. I would not go in that polluted bay water. Made you feel like you had to sterilize yourself after wade fishing.

    Flesh eating bacteria, smelly stinking rotting seaweed, colder than normal water temps well in to summer, paid seawall parking with no new amenities, Galveston just can not catch a break.

    Man from Orange Texas (local constable ) got flesh eating bacteria last week wading in gulf around
    Crystal beach. Keep your children out of the water.
