Sunday was another gorgeous day around the Galveston Bay Complex and, while the weather was nice, fishing appeared to be on the slow side. That is unless you were fishing for flounder around the barge cut on Pelican Island.

Sunday, Homer Estes and Danny Busch fished the north shoreline of Pelican Island near the barge cut and found flounder stacked up. The anglers were wade fishing using Chicken Boys and Gulps for bait. In a time span of 20 minutes, both anglers had their limits of flounder with the largest being taped at 22 inches.
