Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 5-19-2020

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Fishing had really started the transition into a good consistent late spring pattern this week but then here comes the flooding rains over the weekend. Hopefully it will flush out quickly this week. We did not get as much as they forecasted but the rainfall up north that ends up in the Trinity river is the thing to watch. The bay water salinity has tested very fresh on the surface on most of East Bay areas, 5-7 ppt, but trout have been getting better on deeper areas where there is good bait activity and better water clarity.

Finding a lot of bait activity and slicks has been one of the keys to locating the fish. Live shrimp free lined has worked the best for clients with some larger fish coming on darker colored Down South soft plastics. I look for conditions to just get better as we get into late spring. Surf fishing can really turn on this time of year under the right conditions. It looks like that should be happening very soon. If you have taken a class, don’t forget to reach out for your included support as fish have really been transitioning into different areas with the fresh water slow to leave the bay.

I have some weekdays still open in June and also some opportunities for classes. Classes 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!

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.
