The effects of the tropical wave crossing the Gulf of Mexico pretty well shut things down on the fishing scene Saturday. There were a few boats out dodging rain early Saturday and one group of anglers found the endurance worthwhile.

Shep Morgan and his brother Billy headed out in light rain and fished the area along the Ship Channel just out from the end of the seawall. Using live shrimp and croaker, they landed 13 trout, two bull reds and two black drum, a large throwback and a 20-inch puppy drum.
