The summertime heat is on, and again, we are encouraging caution to the high midday heat indexes. Fortunately, this weekend thunderstorms again become part of the forecasts, and that usually takes the temperatures down.

The hot spot (no pun intended) for catches Wednesday was offshore. Two reports came in, one from a group that spent Tuesday night in the blue waters of the Gulf about 100 miles out of Galveston and the other from a day trip to wells and platforms 30 to 40 miles east/southeast of the jetties.
