Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 5-5-2020

By Captain Bryan Brawner
Weather disturbances were the driving force of fishing conditions again last week with the passage of a front and 70+ mph winds clocked at the jetty. The water was pretty messed up but some specks were caught later in the week with the strong incoming tides. I ran classes when the wind permitted this week and found most of the active

Captain Bryan's Fishing ReportThe Bay conditions the last few weeks have been dominated by fronts every few days with strong winds and cooler temps in the aftermath of each disturbance. This is great for yard work but really keeps the fish on the move with changing water conditions and small windows of opportunity. Water temps went from 79.5 to 69 in just a couple of days and as of Saturday it was back to the low 80’s.

Captain Bryan's Fishing Report

From Easter weekend through this week we are going to have elevated winds which will turn from the north and really slow down fishing for a few days. I have some classes scheduled for the weekend and will be anxious to get back out. I really don’t think it will impact the fishing much as it will warm back up quickly. It will just extend successful days for those who have been producing good

Captain Bryan's Fishing ReportEverything remains about the same in the Bay
I haven’t been out this week and everything remains about the same in the Bay this week on reports and conditions. We have had a lot of wind and are looking for more this week. Good time to service your fishing equipment! Fishing near areas of tide movement on the protected shorelines has produced some solid trout for waders during

Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 3-31-2020

Not many changes since my last report except there is more bait in the bay.
Fish are in transition now and the bite has been very weather dependent. The winds have more impacts on the bay conditions than anything else with gusts from the west or southwest being the worse and shutting everything down quickly, even under favorable tide

Weekday Specials Available!
Galveston East Bay and its fishing patterns are in early full transition now with the early warm up. The water is in excellent condition. Fish are on the move and are on most of the mid bay oyster reefs. However, the winds have limited being able to fish the reefs much for the last

It’s great to be back on the water and posting Galveston East Bay fishing reports again! This week we had successful spring break fun trips with lots of action for everyone. Whiting, speckled trout, and some black drum were all biting. Since we had a mild winter and early spring, the spring fishing patterns seem to be running a few weeks early with the

By Captain Bryan Brawner
I have been asked a lot about what I think will happen after Rollover Pass is filled in so, with the beginning of the new year and decade, I am going to share a short experience I had a few years back before Ike while fishing with clients in East Bay. It was a brisk fall weekday morning with the marina nearly deserted like I like it. My clients pulled up
