MAN AND CHILD ON I-45 HOUSTON HOV SUPERBOWL SUNDAY

Man and kid riding lawnmower on Houston HOV

Nothing says “Welcome to Houston” for the big Super Bowl game like a man and a kid rolling down the I-45 HOV lane on a red lawn mower. Aparently during all the Super Bowl hype the duo took to the street for reasons unknown. Pretty funny, glad knowbody got hurt. Just leaves me scratching my head. Where were they headed?

GALVESTON TEXAS FISHING REPORT 6/29/16

The summer time lay down has begun. Fishing has turned on in the past week. Limits of speckled trout are easily being taken while wading the calm morning and afternoon waters on the beach front. Smacks are moving in so be prepared to lose some tackle. If you plan on targeting smacks try using long shank J hooks to prevent there teeth from severing your line.

Conditions: Light west wind switching to south in the afternoon. Falling barometric pressure. 4 fairly weak tides.

We started drifting a mid bay reef Wednesday morning just before sunrise. The reef produced quite a few small sand trout on live shrimp. We moved out to the North Jetty boat cut and picked up a nice mess of trout. Live shrimp under a popping cork did the trick. We then moved to the beach side of the South Jetty and it was on. Free line shrimp was the ticket. We boated over 30 slot reds, a couple were under. We kept 14 nice trout the largest in the 23″-26″ range. Smacks, Sheep head, drum and Sharks were all in the mix. Phenomenal day on the water and a nice meat haul.

ALLIGATOR SPOTTED AT SYLVAN BEACH LAPORTE TEXAS

Fisherman and beach goers have spotted an alligator lurking around the popular Sylvan Beach Park.  Animal Control is currently searching for the beast.

In light of all the recent rain we have had there have been a number of alligator sightings all around the Galveston Bay complex. Be careful out there y’all, don’t become gator bait.

CONSUMPTION BAN, TOXIC FISH IN LAKE LIVINGSTON TEXAS

Via: KPRC Click2Houston

I must say this is an extensive amount of information as to what toxins were discovered in the fish? Must be some bad stuff for an all out ban request.

From the article:

A fish advisory is in effect for Lake Livingston and parts of the Trinity River.

The advisory comes after health workers found high toxic levels in fish samples.

The advisory is for seven types of fish: blue catfish, flathead catfish, freshwater drum, gar, smallmouth buffalo, striped bas and white bass.

Officials are asking people to not eat the fish.

UPDATE Via: Texas DSHS

The usual suspects. Dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls or PCBs

The Texas Department of State Health Services today issued a fish consumption advisory for Lake Livingston and portions of the Trinity River after laboratory testing of fish samples found elevated levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls or PCBs.

The Lake Livingston advisory is for seven types of fish – blue catfish, flathead catfish, freshwater drum, gar, smallmouth buffalo, striped bass and white bass. The advisory is in effect for the Trinity River Basin which includes Lake Livingston and the Trinity River from U.S. 287 downstream to U.S. 90.

Regular or long-term consumption of fish from these waters may increase the likelihood of long- term health risks. People can still fish in the area, though they should not consume or should limit their consumption of fish from this area and are advised to follow the specific age and species recommendations in this chart:
