Captain Jeff Brandon Fishing Report, 5-14-24

Captain Jeff Brandon Fishing ReportBy Captain Jeff Brandon
Surface water temperature 76 degrees. Water clarity stirred up more than usual after the front we had this past week, in conjunction with the freshwater entering the bay system from the heavy rains. We fished in the typical Spring Time winds again this week, so it continues to limit where we are able to fish effectively. We found good numbers of solid trout on the Shorelines over shell pockets and within close proximity to drains where we had good tide movement, as well as Redfish along the grass lines with the higher tides. If you see bait flipping on the surface the fish are close by, if not, you are best to move on to another spot, after making a few casts. The lighter the jig head the better (1/16 to 1/4), determined by the wind and current, and tails without paddles, are still performing the best, as we were utilizing Anahuac based, Wac Assassin’s in Pearly White & Chartreuse, depending upon water clarity and light conditions. This week Fish Smack Popping corks with a 1 to 2 foot leader above a Marker 54 Glide Shrimp has been the top performer for our fishing friends. with a hard pop and a 5 to 8 second pause gathering the most strikes. The new 1/8 oz Shrimplets are coming on strong as well, enticing the largest catches this week. The Topwater bite has also been good when utilized on our early morning and late afternoon trips, so if you like throwing walking baits, now is the perfect time. Spring is here and fishing will continue to heat up as the water warms up, so grab your family and friends and beat the crowds on East Galveston Bay.
