Bryan beach

Went out to Bryan Beach this morning. Drove along until I saw a gut I liked. Waded in at around 7:30. Solid action until about 8:15. Most fish undersized or right at 15". Kept 3 that went 16" or 17".

Moved down a little and got one more keeper at about 9:15. Called it at 9:30. Had a few ladyfish, a few little jacks and a bluefish in between the trout. Surf had some pretty good rollers come in, but no chop and minimal upshore current.

Fun, fun, it was.

Size 4 Tan Borski Slider.
Took a look at the fish’s stomachs, but they were pretty empty, one had some remnants of a little unidentifiable baitfish. Lots a three inch mullet around, hugging the bar I was standing on, but I didn’t notice anything getting at them. All the fish were in the first gut, I never even made it to the next bar and the second gut.

Tried a different shrimp looking fly for a little bit, but got nothing on it.

I tie those Borski sliders mainly with a small tungsten dumbbell. The tungsten ones might sink about a foot per second, plus or minus, depending on different things like how close I trim the deer hair.

I didn’t try to go all of the way to the MOB. The little pinch point about a mile from the mouth was passable with room to spare. I did see trucks and cars continue on towards the mouth and it looked like they were getting there. I had been to the mouth area about a month ago and there were several big drift trees that made it tough to get around. A bigger tide over 2 feet might be tough at the place where the clay bank comes close to the water. The water level at dawn Saturday was more like 1.5 feet and dropping a little.

The main entrance coming straight off the Quintana bridge wasn’t too bad. Looked like they had recently scraped it. I always put it in 4 wheel drive before I get off the improved road, but it wasn’t needed. I didn’t drive the road at the 4 way stop that goes to the right. There was a partial barricade there and it’s been a old fashioned wash board lately anyway.

Ok thanks! It's been YEARS since down there, used to hunt that salt pond by the MoB. Thanks for the good info but I still will have to do a recon during the day before heading out there for the first time in years at night. You know there are flounder all over there.
