Strong tropical force winds gusting to well more than 50 mph are taking place in Galveston as today’s Reel Report is being written. The forecasts are calling for much calmer conditions for today. However, the huge question on the minds of anglers is how the fishing will be this weekend.

First, it is going to take time for the high tide levels to recede, and with a west wind in the forecast for today, that should help.
