Fernando Perez and his nephew Fabian Galavez Jr. with a nice bass caught in a fresh water lake near Texas City.

Saturday turned out to be overall a disappointment on the fishing scene. However, we did receive one report of action in Moses Lake where Corey Hester and Morris McCullough hit the water late Saturday morning and fished with live shrimp. By noon, they had three black drums up to 17 inches and a slot red.

Hester said he did not think the drum were any indication of the annual run beginning because he almost always catches a puppy drum or two when fishing Moses Lake.
