Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 12-15-2020

By Captain Bryan Brawner
We are now in the winter weather patterns when everything is very hit and miss in Galveston East Bay. Daily changes in wind directions, fast temperature drops and low winter tide levels leave fishing windows of opportunity at a minimum. It’s a good time to catch up with projects so I will be doing some maintenance for a few days and hopefully get all back ordered parts shipped in correctly.

Specks and Reds for the most part can be caught in deeper channels of bayous with low tides and adjacent flats with a warm up. For wading flats this time of year a mullet imitation like a MirrOlure with slowed down presentation works. The main bait activity to key on now is active mullet. Some of the deeper areas around the ship channel and northern protected areas of Trinity Bay/Baytown have been good in recent reports with the winter patterns in December. Some whiting and drum are also being caught on some of the deeper oyster reefs off of the ship channel.

For that special hard to buy for angler in your family, I will offer a limited amount of gift certificates for Galveston East Bay Class/ Seminars. Email for more information and how to buy these.

For those that have taken my class, the late fall pattern was working with water temps lower in the 60’s. However, conditions now will be dependent on water temperature and tide levels. 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/ 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 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.

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.
