Better conditions are ahead and with them look for some excellent fall fishing. Flounder will be getting most of the attention, as it appears that we are approaching the possible peak of the annual flounder run.
While very few anglers have been able to fish in recent days, those that have are reporting excellent action on larger flounder around the pathways to the Gulf.
The weather forecasts were on target and the cold, windy and wet weather set in. It appears that it will be several days before conditions settle to the point that we can get back into fishing.
Saturday was another bad day for anglers, as cold, damp and windy weather kept the fishing crowd away from the water. The good news is that when conditions improve we should be in for some excellent fall fishing, especially for anglers fishing the Galveston area.
Thursday looked like it would be a good day to hit the water before the cold fronts hit this week. The overcast conditions appeared to favor fishing and the wind was fairly light. Unfortunately by the time I got loaded up and made it to the causeway bridge, the wind had picked up and had low…
Record and near record high temperatures continued to hamper fishing around Galveston on Wednesday. This will not last much longer, as a major cold front is on its way which will be casting winter-like weather around our area.
Reports from bait camps and marinas around Galveston indicated low numbers of anglers fishing last weekend. Most likely it had to do with the motorcycle rally; however, the rally itself did not affect fishing.
We have been mentioning a lot about flounder and the annual flounder run lately and for good reason: this is prime time for the big event. While flounder have been getting a lot of attention lately there are other fish out there.
Wednesday morning conditions were good for fishing and a few anglers were on the water hoping for more that just two flounder to take home. October 31 was the last day for the normal flounder bag limits, as today the limit drops from five to two per angler.
Another absolutely gorgeous day prevailed around Galveston on Tuesday; however, that is about to change with a strong cold front headed our way.
We are entering that time of year when conditions preceding strong cold fronts activate feeding and movement among fish, especially flounder. It is called the pre-frontal bite, and, with a strong cold front on its way here Wednesday and Thursday, we could see this occurring Tuesday and early…
Finally, nice weather has settled in and around Galveston, and it has given anglers an opportunity to fish areas that were virtually not fishable for days. Still, there is a lot of fresh water passing through the bays, and it likely will be several days before we see any appreciable increase…
Here we are on October 27 and for the most part Fall Fishing is just now getting underway. It seems that each year lately there has been a progressive delay in getting the water temperatures down to the point that fish start getting serious about preparing for winter.
