Fishing Report from Captain Jeff Brandon, 5-23-23

By Captain Jeff Brandon
Surface water temps 80 degrees, water clarity decent in most places for East Galveston Bay. As you progress further east the water clarity decreases. The large amount of freshwater the entered the bay system due to all the rains up above us did not seem to hamper the overall bite, so we were able to fish our regular spots in East Bay. Winds have been Westerly over the past few days limiting the areas we have been able to target effectively. We have been able to find a good number of baitfish, and shrimp and the predators have been close by. Grass lines up in the marsh and in and around drains have produced Redfish, Flounder, and Black Drum for us, utilizing live shrimp, under a popping cork, as well as paddle tails and ¼ oz jig heads. Purple with Chartreuse worked well for us this week. We did have one day where we were able to get out on an open water reef and it did produce some trout action for us, so that bite should get better as we progress into more of a summertime pattern.

Now is the perfect time to hit the water with Family, Friends, and Clients, and as always, we will design a trip around your expectations, and guarantee you will have a great time fishing Galveston Bay.
