Anglers on the water early Tuesday dodged the brunt of a southwest wind that started creeping up in velocity by 9 a.m. Gusts to over 20 knots were felt most of the day and as experienced anglers know, that is not good for fishing.

Action around the Texas City Dike early Tuesday and along the North Jetty near the boat cut was worthwhile for the early birds.
