Wind shift changes anglers' luck
Posted: August 23, 2016

What a difference wind direction makes on fishing! Tuesday morning was a good example, as reported by Don Peebles. Early Tuesday, Peebles was fishing the jetties with Lamar Welch and Bucky Sanders. The anglers from Friendswood were not having much luck until just after 10 a.m. when the wind shifted to the southeast.

Few anglers on the water
Posted: August 17, 2016

There were no fishing reports Wednesday and few if any anglers on the water. Hopefully we will start seeing the rain slacking off this weekend. It will remain to be seen as to the effects of the fresh water runoffs into the Galveston Bay System; however, there is little doubt that salinity levels will be reduced, just how much is the question.

Mondays tend to have the fewest reports of the week, as the weekend anglers have returned home. Monday of this week however was a bit of a surprise as two good reports were received in spite of the threatening weather.
