Sunday was another great day to be on the water; however, the fishing, overall, was a bit disappointing. The big news on the fishing scene was the first reported catches of king mackerel off of Galveston this season.

Along the beachfront, conditions were excellent early; however, about the only fish biting were whiting and gafftop. The wind began picking up during the afternoon, and it likely will maintain a moderate to strong velocity for the next several days.
