Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 6-22-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Most of last week was very tough in East Bay with water remaining fresh and the water clarity terrible throughout the bay. Some fish were being caught on live shrimp at the jetties and the surf was on fire for specks. When the winds finally turned favorable from the southeast toward the weekend, fishing did pick up some on the bay but most of the fish were small having to catch several to get a keeper. At least, not all of the specks haven migrated out but I think most of the larger fish are gone until fall. Filing the barb off the hook can reduce the damage and improve the survival of the smaller fish. Schools of reds will move in and out depending on bait availability.

Surf fishing is excellent now with speckled trout and sharks being caught at the beachfront. Miss Nancy’s Bait camp and Sea Pony in Winnie will have you covered for surf fishing bait and tackle.

For those that have taken my class, we are in mid summer patterns with tough fresh water conditions continuing to persist. Don’t forget to ask for your updates before you go out. Fish are concentrated in smaller areas and are on the move some now and you will waste time hitting every main reef.

I have some days now open July and August for reserved private on the water classes. Reserve your time now as we have had to work around the persistent strong winds and storms 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.
