Live shrimp again are in short supply, with most bait camps lowering their white flag early this week. Shrimpers are having a tough time finding the sought after bait close to Galveston.

There is some good news, however, and that is shrimp are being found farther north in Galveston Bay. Galveston Bait and Tackle was one of the bait camps out of shrimp earlier this week. However, they received a load of jumbo-sized live shrimp Wednesday.
