Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 6-8-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
There are no major changes in East Bay fishing conditions. Fresh water patterns are here to stay for a few weeks now. Now that storms and holiday crowds are behind us for a little while, I will be back on the water more the coming week.

Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 6-1-21
With all of the storms behind us at least for a while, fishing has really been picking up in Galveston East Bay. Enjoy it while it lasts. There is a flooding influx of fresh water coming down the Trinity River from the Lake Livingston spillway release. With Trinity Bay trashed, there will be a movement of fish south through the bay system which will temporarily benefit East Bay.

With higher water levels, those that wade fish south shoreline areas early still have the advantage. Some of the oyster reefs will hold lots of smaller specks with reds schooling throughout the deeper parts of the bay and lots of fish will eventually be pushed out to the jetties like last year. As the water gets fresher, specks will hold closer to the bottom where salinity content is higher. Heavier jig heads and plastics in chartreuse colors will be the best ticket in the bay.

Reds don’t mind the fresh water.

Surf fishing is good now with reds and sharks being caught at the beachfront. Miss Nancy’s Bait camp will have you covered for surf fishing bait and tackle.

For those that have taken my class, we are in early summer patterns with fresh water conditions here to deal with now. 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 in June and July 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.
