Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 4-13-2021

By Captain Bryan Brawner
We are in an optimal weather pattern now for excellent fishing action now that the water has warmed up. As usual for Galveston Bay, the wind has blown out a lot of days but fish are active on some of the mid bay oyster reefs when you can get to them. The south shoreline areas and marsh areas are also good bets on high and incoming tides. Live shrimp under a popping cork will work great but due to limited availability, it would benefit to have a good supply of Gulps and Down South plastics. Down South plastic tails have a good action on the drop and also slow retrieve which make them as productive as live bait most of the time. Just got to be where the fish are! Slicks, birds diving on bait, and observable bait activity are some of the best ways to find actively feeding fish. Being at the right place with tides can put you in the best locations to start looking.

Surf fishing is good now with reds and sharks being caught at the beachfront.

For those that have taken my class, we are in mid spring to late spring patterns with normal to optimum water conditions. Don’t forget to ask for your updates before you go out.

I have a couple days now open in May for reserved private on the water classes. Reserve your time now as we have had to work around the persistent strong winds and fronts to conduct classes in the best conditions.

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.
