Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 7-13-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
We have been very fortunate here to avoid the major flooding which has plagued the middle Texas coast. The weather has been unsettled with strong southwest winds ending the weekend but our salinity level is recovering and the fishing will get better on days where the water clarity is acceptable. Some healthy specks are spreading out on the mid bay reefs and there is action under some birds and active bait. When the bay is dirty, the jetty area and Galveston beachfront will continue to provide great fishing opportunities when the winds are at reasonable levels.

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

For those that have taken my class, we are in July/Aug summer patterns with fresh water conditions still present but definite improvements toward mid bay reefs. Redfish summer patterns we discussed. Also, check out the summer areas that we stressed for drifting and birds. Don’t forget to ask for your included updates for bay and surf fishing before you go out.

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.

Check my website for prices and more information.
