As I drove down the seawall this morning, I gazed out over the Gulf, and I said to myself, “Those that know, know.”

Yes, the surf was flat and green to the beach. Catches of speckled trout came from the surf. Even a few pompano were caught. In the morning, the surf should be primed for those “dawn patrol anglers.” I’ll throw out a hint: The stretch of sand about 150 yards west of the Galveston Fishing Pier is a great place to try your luck.
