Many anglers are growing weary of the poor fishing conditions and related catches that have been with us recently. One of them, Thomas Matthews, sent a note asking when Galveston area fishing should start getting better?

All I can say is that as the water warms, the odds increase for better fishing.

Poor fishing conditions?? I went surf fishing Sunday morning, West Beach, and nearly filled up a 48 qt. cooler with whiting and Florida Pompano. Just because the weather's ugly doesn't mean fish aren't biting.
