Badly needed rainfall hit the Galveston area early Tuesday; however, the near-gale-force winds accompanying the cold front were not welcomed. Fishing was wiped out for the most part, and anglers are sitting on the sidelines waiting for conditions to improve.
Capt. Lloyd Pepper, also known as the Mayor of West Bay, called in to say the west end of the island, especially close to San Luis Pass, received heavy rain, about 4 to 5 inches. This is exactly what the marshes and back bays in that area needed.
