Some of you may know the story about how Offatts Bayou got its name. For those that don't ... back in the days when the rail ran straight up/down Broadway... people would say " I want off at the bayou"... thus it became known as "Offatts Bayou". Good stuff eh?

The reason Offatt's bayou is there is because that is one of the places they dredged for fill to raise Galveston as they built the new seawall, after the 1900 storm. The crash basin too.

Right...The deep hole in Moses Lake is there for the same reason. This is where they dredged to build the levi from Dickinson Bayou to the flood gate. :work:

Is the water clearer in Offats than the rest of the bay? A buddy of mine use to go gigging for stone crabs in offats at night. When I asked how he could see he said the water was very clear. He would snorkel with a gig and dive light and dive down 10 to 15 feet or so to gig them.
