Fishing reports have been hard to come by since the off-again, on-again freezing weather began more than a week ago. While there is some cold weather in the near-term forecast, there is no freezing weather predicted for the Galveston area for the next 10 days.
Once we get past the first week of February, we normally are in the clear as far as any severe freezes. The thermometer has hit the freezing mark as late as March 21 in Galveston, but such conditions do not last long that late in the year. December and January are our worst months for fish-killing freezes and, apparently, one of our readers refreshed his memory as to how severe some of those freezes were.
