Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 3-16-2021

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Barring any major flooding this spring, Galveston East Bay is in better shape than I have seen in a long time for this time of year. Salinity levels are normal for here and there is plentiful bait activity throughout the bay. We were very fortunate that the freeze damage was minimal for us, albeit there were fish kills in some areas. We still need to be conservation minded on the big fish of all species.

Water temperature is already in the mid to high 60’s and fish are being caught on some of the mid bay reefs. Just need the wind to quit blowing to fish them. During this time of year it is ideal for waders throwing topwaters around the usual south shoreline areas as we have the spring bull tides soon. Also, Reds and whiting have been good in the surf.

If you have taken my class, don’t forget to text me for updates before you go out for best tide times and other vital info we have discussed. This year is finally shaping up to the “normal” seasonal conditions we discussed in the class.

We are still getting a couple of cold fronts a week but at this point I don’t think that they will adversely impact fishing more than just a day or 2 when the northwest wind is blowing.

As the weather stabilizes, there will be a lot more days that we will be able to run classes as we cover all areas on the bay and don’t need wind pumping out of any one direction. I have a few days still available for classes between the last week of March and mid May now and some weekdays available for fishing charters.

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.
