The 61st Street Fishing Pier reported that this weekend’s catches consisted of black drum, golden croaker and gafftop. A few sharks also hit the deck of the pier. Catches of speckled trout at night are slow, mainly because of the wind direction keeping the surf off-colored.

Phillip Thompson and his son James hopped on Galveston Party Boats for a 12-hour snapper trip recently. Again, the captain, crew and galley hands took exceptional care of all the anglers, according to the elder Thompson.
