TEXAS CITY – Officials on Monday released the name of a man who drowned Saturday while wade fishing off the Texas City Dike.

The angler’s name is Carl Aunsola, 57, according to the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Fire officials said Aunsola was from the Clear Lake area and had been fishing with a nephew when he went underwater near Mosquito Island off the Texas City Dike about 4 p.m.

He was not wearing a lifejacket, and his body was found by a kayaker about 30 minutes after he went missing, officials said.
