Conditions started settling Tuesday, and it looks like we will have at least a couple of days of decent fishing weather before the next cold front hits.
I am now convinced that we are in the midst of a flounder run, albeit mostly males. We have often mentioned that the smaller males are the first to make their way through the pathways to the Gulf, and the Galveston Ship Channel is probably the prime route.
There definitely is a flounder run taking place along the Galveston Ship Channel. While easy limits of the flatfish are reportedly being taken, this is the only area where we have had any reports of significant flounder activity.
Anglers likely will deal with cooler and rainy conditions for a few days. However, my prediction is that once the weather settles after this next cold front, flounder action will begin heating up.
While all of the inclement weather Monday morning discouraged most anglers from hitting the water, that was not the case with one of our more frequent contributors, Mark McDavid.
Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous day and a nice time to be on the water. The few reports received indicated catches of mostly pan fish; however with the conditions prevailing Sunday afternoon, it appeared ripe for some action. Unfortunately anglers start exiting the water early on Sundays …
It was another gorgeous day around Galveston. However, a moderate to at times strong southeast wind hampered anglers from fishing open bodies of water.
Ideal conditions prevailed over the Galveston area Wednesday. However, that is about to change. Another cold front is on the way, and this one likely will lower the water temperatures a bit.
Finally, some cooler temperatures for the Galveston area. While not enough to get the fish to moving, there are indications that flounder are thinking about it.
A cold front, actually more of a cool front, is moving across the upper Texas Coast and bringing more pleasant temperatures to the Galveston area for a while.
Summertime weather continues to prevail over the Galveston area and fishing, except for the marshes and back bays has been on the slow side.
