Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 2-23-2021

By Captain Bryan Brawner
From preliminary reports at the time of writing, Galveston East Bay looks to have really dodged a bullet with the winter storm. I have had several reports along with the early scouting by Alan Hall and Jim which show no signs of dead fish of any kind on the shorelines. With the fish population finally recovering after seasons of fresh water, this is great news that even the smaller bait fish mostly survived the frigid waters. I am cautiously optimistic on the early reports and just hope there are not a lot of dead fish on the bottom that could float up this week due to our lower salinity. Some dead fish on the bottom have been seen around the Tiki area.

Hopefully after the passage of the next couple of mild fronts, the water levels will return to normal. I think the lower than normal tides this year probably saved some fish because they had already moved to deeper, warmer water. I will post an update on my Facebook page and here as I get reliable reports.

We start running quite a bit in a couple of weeks. There are a few openings at the end of March and into April. I also have some April weekend openings for on the water classes.

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.
