Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 6-29-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Fishing in East Bay will remain challenging for a while with fresh dirty water conditions persisting for the foreseeable future. We have a repeat or worse of last year’s conditions. Specks can still be caught on the south shorelines early where bait is present and on southerly oyster reefs when there is any water clarity. If you can’t see a chartreuse bait 4” down, move on. All trout being caught are undersize or barely keepers. If it’s not too windy, the jetties and areas out of East Bay are offering better opportunities for catching. With live shrimp being hard to get, expensive, and hard to keep alive, I have found that the Vudu Shrimp have performed reasonably good free lined and under a deeper rigged popping cork.

Fishing the surf is where you want to be now. Surf fishing is excellent 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.

Now is the best opportunity to invest your time in a private on the water class/seminar to be ready when fishing finally turns around later summer into the fall. There are 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.
