Hot, dry and windy weather continued to prevail over the Galveston area, with the conditions taking its toll on fishing and fishermen.

Earlier this week, before the wind picked up, Bob Currie of Crystal Beach and Terry Weir of Gilchrist dodged thunderstorms to fish marshes from the west end of East Bay northward to the Bolivar Ferry Landing. They caught 12 flounder, too many trout to count, but retained only two along with five flounder. Live shrimp and plastics were the baits.
