Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 2-9-2021

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Fronts are hitting every few days now dragging out the winter low tide conditions. The windows of opportunity are the day or two right before the fronts with southerly winds and higher tides. It’s time for wading south shoreline shell with Corky’s and top waters.

Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 1-26-2021
We have really been enjoying spring early the last several days with no cold temps on the long range forecast. Despite some fog, for most days water conditions have been improving on East Bay. Water temperatures are still cool but specks will be biting in a spring pattern around the south shoreline and marsh drain areas. One just has to stay on the move and cover some water to find where they are biting. We still have nasty low tides with weekly cold fronts so some of the best bites have been with the afternoon incoming tides with a southerly wind. Waders have the advantage.

This is the time of year we start looking forward to a lot of trips with kids, and when the speck bite is slow, we target some sheepshead or drum to keep their rods bent. It is important to keep them interested and have a good experience so they will grow to love fishing.

Soon, whiting will be easy to catch in the surf and are some of the best eating fish out there.

Other areas of the bay system report a few fish starting to show up on the Kemah and Seabrook shoreline and also still some fish north in the Fred Hartman Bridge area around Atkins Island.

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

For those that have taken my class; even with improving weather, the winter weather patterns with weekly fronts are here to stay for a while and conditions now will be dependent on water temperature wind direction 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 March the weather and water conditions are favorable again to conduct the on the water classes and available days fill up quickly. 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.
