Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 7-6-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
I am keeping my fingers crossed now as Galveston East Bay is slowly improving with healthier keeper size specks showing up in more locations. Stay Away Rain! As of the latest reading on Sunday, Lake Livingston spillway is releasing less than 15,000 cuft/sec of water into Trinity. This is a big improvement and will lead to gradual improvement in salinity and fishing conditions. Fishing is good on days when the water clarity is decent where you can at least see your lure a few inches down. Chartruese Down South plastics have been the most productive lure. Either solid or anything with chartreuse tail works. I would not waste time and money on live shrimp unless you are venturing to the jetties as the upper water column is still fresh. The fish are mostly right on the bottom so fish your lure in touch with the shell. Waders fishing early and shallow on high tide mornings are still catching good on topwaters as the fish have been pushed to the south shoreline.

Surf fishing is excellent currently 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 present but definite improvements toward mid bay reefs. Check out the summer areas that we stressed for drifting and birds. 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.

Check my website for prices and more information.
