Rainy days will dampen fishing

Anglers planning fishing or other trips on the water Tuesday or Wednesday should give consideration to postponing them, as a very strong frontal system is approaching the Texas coastal waters.

Anglers planning fishing or other trips on the water Tuesday or Wednesday should give consideration to postponing them, as a very strong frontal system is approaching the Texas coastal waters. Monday, wind and gale advisories were being posted for coastal waters through Wednesday. The forecast calls for winds reaching close to 40 knots.

If the forecasts hold, there is one thing we can almost be assured of and that is another period of unusually low water levels around Galveston. Unfortunately that is not what fishermen want to hear. Hopefully by this weekend we will see conditions returning to normal.

Sunday afternoon I made my first fishing trip in more than a month and, while the weather was not pleasant with overcast, damp and cool conditions, the fishing was good. I fished a number of spots from the causeway area to Offatts Bayou and landed a 21-inch red and five trout from 16 to 19 inches in length.

That was just what was needed to get into gear for more late winter fishing.

Other reports from Sunday indicated good action on black drum from the San Luis Pass area and from around Seawolf Park. Lots of good-sized sand trout are showing up along the Galveston Channel, with one of the better spots being the deep holes near the Pelican Island Bridge.

The Rusty Hook Fishing Club will be holding its 29th annual Black Drum Fishing Tournament gets underway Friday, March 11 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday March 13 at 3 p.m.

The event will headquarter at the Rusty Hook Club Trailer next to Boyd’s One Stop Bait Camp near the Texas City Dike.

The entry fee is $25. For more information, call (832) 771-7298 or check www.rhfishing.org.
