Captain Jeff Brandon Fishing ReportBy Captain Jeff Brandon
Surface water temperature 68 degrees. Water clarity decent for East Galveston Bay. We are still catching Tout, Reds, and a few flounder in the marsh/bayou areas, but the fish have started their transition out into the main bay system. We found good numbers of solid trout on the Shorelines over shell pockets and within close proximity to drains. Our experience has been if you see bait flipping on the surface you will find some fish, if not, you are best to move on to another spot. The lighter the jig head the better (1/16 to 1/4), determined by the wind and current, and tails without paddles, performing the best, as we were utilizing Wac Assassin’s in Chartreuse & Monkey Milk, depending upon clarity and light conditions. This week Fish Smack Popping corks with a 2′ leader above a Marker 54 Glide Shrimp has done equally well on our trips, with a hard pop and about a 5 second pause gathering the most strikes. Spring is here and fishing will continue to heat up as the water warms into the 70’s and the days continue to get longer.
