Fog raised its ugly head again Sunday and shut things down for the first part of the day.

With the majority of the anglers having to head home for work Monday, we might as well say fishing was shut down all day.

Saturday, however, was a different story. Trout, reds, black drum and sheepshead were taken by a number of fishermen.

Dean Silvers along with friends Bill Zimmer and Patrick Arteaga broke in Silvers’ new 21-foot Mako and did so in class.

The anglers fished Offatts Bayou where they landed a slot red, a keeper-sized black drum and a large sheepshead.

Jetty Joe, Galveston Bait and Tackle, reported three nice catches appearing at his cleaning table.

John and Mike Jones of Houston brought in five trout to more than 4 pounds, and four reds to 24 inches from West Bay. Soft plastics were the baits.

A customer known only as Pop of Clear Lake caught four trout at the causeway, and a party of four returned from the South Jetty with four bull reds to 30 inches and two black drum. Cut mullet and squid were the baits of choice.

Samuel Austin and his son Chad fished Moses Lake on Saturday afternoon and landed three slot reds, seven sheepshead and four black drum, three keepers and an undersized throwback.

Saturday, Capt. Johnny Williams took 80 anglers on his flagship, Capt. John, to the old sunken ship V.A. Fogg.

The 12-hour trip resulted in a catch of a boat limit of red snapper to 20 pounds, 85 sand trout, 10 whiting, six vermilions, four mangroves, a rockhind and a sheepshead.

The V.A. Fogg is located about 40 miles south of the South Jetty.
