What a wonderful fall weekend we had to enjoy. This is what autumn is meant to be.
Anglers should get a break in the weather, as nice conditions are in the forecast for the next several days. This comes on top of a rough first half of the month when one cold front after another kept the waters around Galveston in poor condition.
We are entering the second half of November, and it should be a fantastic time to hit the water and enjoy some nice catches. The recent series of strong cold fronts has helped to pave the way.
Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous day, as predicted by the weather forecasters and there was a lot of activity on the water. Overall, fishing was on the slow side, except flounder anglers did find limits of their favorite fish but not as quickly as earlier in the weekend.
Anglers have a couple of days to enjoy some nice fishing conditions before the next blast of Arctic winds hit Monday night.
Our fall fishing is definitely underway. Flounder continue their annual migration to the Gulf, as the smaller males are now making their way through the passes and other pathways to their winter spawning grounds.
I do not think we will see any anglers out “trick-or-trouting” today or in the next couple of days. If the forecasts hold, we will experience some of the coldest weather in October that I have seen in all of my years of fishing the Galveston area.
