The water temperature around the Galveston area has been quite cold for several days now. That combined with low water levels following the passage of the latest cold front has anglers guessing as to where the fish are.

Fortunately a moderate east wind started Wednesday afternoon and while it is definitely not my favorite, there are times when it does some good. This is one of them as a strong flow of wind from an easterly direction will bring warmer Gulf waters back into the bays.
