It seems like we keep playing the same song over and over lately regarding fishing conditions. We are in a spell, and a long spell I might add, of a siege of extremely hot weather generated by a moderate southwest wind.

This wind comes across South Texas and is a cross wind on upper Texas coastal waters. My experience is it usually takes an event such as a frontal system or disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico to quickly change it. I hope we will see a norther or change in pressures come along soon and improve conditions in a positive way. We definitely do not want a disturbance in the Gulf though.
