A sustained south wind at 15 knots made conditions Monday choppy for fishing, especially in the open bays and surf.

While the wind was blowing, the fish were biting. Polly and I were planning to head offshore Monday. However, wind at 15 knots is two knots higher than our cut off point of 13 knots.

Can you tell me where the sunken shrimp boat is in the Galveston ship channel?
