    ...fished a ton over the years here on Galveston Bay, and have been doing my best to convince my fishing friends that this time of year what they are smelling is "Gafftop". FINALLY!! They went out on their own and all they were catching were slimers....case closed! However, you can also see slicks...small ones...pop up on Flounder right on the shoreline as well as over by the Red Crab Trap in the Galveston Channel and know it's time to get busy.

    If it was that big it was probably downwind of where the fish were located.

    I've read about the infamous "red crab tap". From what I've read, only one had located it?

    The Trout Support videos have very detailed information on fishing slicks.
