In the water at the end of the Sea Wall near the rocks by 6:15 am. Threw top water for about an hour. Nothing. Friend had live shrimp managed the biggest gaftop I have ever seen, 7-8 pounds. Fished infront of the rocks and managed some small sand trout. Water was brown.

Moved to the pass on the Galveston side gulf side way around back towards Galveston. Water looked nice, greenish, ok visibility. Again used arties and live shrimp. Nothing other than a few small hardheads and some small sharks. I put a shrimp on the bottom and caught one small crocker.

Put the crocker on the bottom and it got hammered by a 23.5 inche spec. Friend caught a 20 inch Pompano on live shrimp. I caught another big Gaftop, 6 pounds, on finger mullett. Ended the day using finger mullet. We caught several sharks on the mullett.

At both locations, bait was all over.

Nope. I did not even tell him there was a Galftop division. It was a pretty big one. I am guesing on the wieght, but it was really big.

I asked him at the start of the day if he was entered and he said is that that thing where you can win a boat. I said yeap. He said no.
