Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 1-5-2021

By Captain Bryan Brawner
I usually don’t post a report this early in January due to adverse weather and most are still catching up on projects and hunting . However, I am starting this year by working on some changes to improve my service for my clients and for my enjoyment also. I am constantly making additions to the content of my “On the Water class seminars“ and plan to make improvements with technology and content this year. I am going to allocate a lot more time and resources to classes and support for clients.

Some may ask …. “ why do you want to help and encourage more people to fish with the already crushing crowds on the water?”

Well , the current boat owners and anglers new to the area are going to be out there on the bay with everyone else anyway, regardless of any class or being educated on the water. I would much rather have everyone be successful, safe , and respectful of others on the water. I stress proper etiquette on the water when fishing around others on fishing locations and crowded days.

If fishing for specks is a little slow on some days the next few weeks, black drum are active and can provide lots of hard pulling fun for family and kids. They will be hanging around drop offs to deeper channels and rougher oyster concentrations on deeper reefs on tide movements with wind permitting.

Also in a few weeks, whiting will be easy to catch in the surf and are some of the best eating fish out there. Reds are being caught in the surf now. Other areas in the north end of the bay are coming in with reports of reds and some scattered specks on shrimp are Upper bay Bayport and Atkinson Island.

It’s not too early to lock in your reservation now for February through Spring Breaks as only a few days are available each week now.

For those that have taken my class, the winter weather patterns are here to stay for a while and conditions now will be dependent on water temperature and tide levels. Don’t forget to contact me for your included support before your next trip especially as it looks like we have post frontal conditions and low tides to work around every week for awhile in the extended forecast.

On the Water Classes/Private Seminars are the Best time you will ever invest in to improve your fishing success for the long haul! I have added some special features this year that included ongoing support and updates.

Into February, the weather and water conditions become favorable again to conduct the on the water classes and available days fill up quickly. In February, winds and water levels return to reasonable levels for classes since we run all parts of the bay including mid bay unmarked oyster reefs on the 55+ miles we cover on a basic class.

This time of year we can run trips where the whole family can be successful with a large variety of fish. Email for questions and availability. Now is the time to book an East Bay Class with the prime fishing just around the corner.

For exact fishing locations and techniques, I am conducting one-on-one classes of the Galveston East Bay System. We will spend a half-day trip exploring that bay and the techniques and timing of fishing there. Bring your hand-held GPS and a map and note pad and I will further your knowledge of the bay and patterns for fishing in all of the seasons of the year. These classes include everything from locations to tackle and lure selection; thus have a lot of content. So, I limit them to 2 persons max at a time. Call 409-256-1265 for more information. We cover a lot of area and burn a lot of gas.

Text or call 409-256-1265 for availability of trips and to reserve your fishing adventure.You can also e-mail me [email protected] for updated fishing conditions and trip availability.
