The long-awaited Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and for at least the early part, conditions look good for fishing.

This has been my favorite holiday weekend for years. It is a time when summer weather has usually arrived, and the temperatures are not as high as in July and August. For many years, conditions allowed an easy and safe offshore trip for smaller boats, commonly called the Mosquito Fleet, around Galveston.
