Fishing reports and the small number received indicated that catches were slow over the weekend. Extreme heat, a strong southwest wind and concerns over the spread of COVID-19 worked to keep anglers off the water.

Monday was virtually a carbon copy of the weekend’s weather. So, not much was taking place on the fishing scene. Live shrimp were scarce Monday. However, the few bait camps I visited with were optimistic about having limited supplies Tuesday.
