Last week fishing in Galveston East Bay was dominated by the wind and dirty water which got worse as the weekend approached. The water temperatures are still in the mid 70’s but the water is just slow clearing up. We were able to catch quite a few larger specks to 6 1/2 lbs when we were able to stay out on the mid bay reefs on an incoming tide. Most of our fish were caught on TTF shad in a chartreuse glitter color worked very slow staying in touch with the shell. Any bright color works to make the lure more visible in water that had less then 6” visibility most of the time. Nothing was hitting live shrimp. Even the big black drum preferred the plastic. When we have to use live bait, I will be using croaker from now on. No reports from the jetties with the winds and the bite for wading anglers also slowed a lot by the end of the week. With a little lighter winds at least below 15 kts, we should be getting some good fish off of most mid bay reefs. I will be back on the water Wednesday and post some on my Crystal Beach Charters Facebook account as I have time. I am pretty much booked up for a while but for some reason, have a few openings the first week of June- 1st through 4th.

I set up a Facebook page this winter and plan to keep up to date postings on East Bay fishing conditions, bait availability, specials offered, etc. Click on the link above to follow the Crystal Beach Charters on Facebook.

With my on-the-water class/seminars, I am offering a new feature which includes real time text fishing updates for my clients. Call me for more detailed information and available dates. I have a limited number of class days which I offer and prices of classes are going up in the spring. Lock in your trip with a gift certificate at current prices. Some weekend dates are available for classes now. Winter is a great time to take a class to be ready for the spring action!

For that hard to shop for angler, a fishing gift certificate is a well deserved
and very much appreciated gift. Call or e-mail me for more information.

Before you book a trip with anyone, make sure that your guide is a full time professional guide and has a USCG captain's license and has commercial marine insurance to protect you and your family while on the water. While on your charter with me, you and your family are covered by Charter Lakes Marine Insurance.

I am a full time fishing guide on Galveston East Bay so I am available for charters 7 days a week. I offer half day, full day, evening, and offshore trips. I plan my charters around your preferences so I offer trips for all skill levels and needs of my clients. I offer hardware (artificial lures) only trips, for the experienced sport fishermen who prefer to use only artificial lures. Also, I offer charters using live bait or a combination so we can take advantage of what they are hitting best for the day we are out. Your success and fun is what taking a fishing charter is about. 409-256-1265 www.FishingHouston.com, www.CrystalBeachCharters.com

For exact fishing locations and techniques, I am conducting one-on-one classes of the Galveston East Bay System. We will spend a half-day trip exploring that bay and the techniques and timing of fishing there. Bring your hand-held GPS and a map and note pad and I will further your knowledge of the bay and patterns for fishing in all of the seasons of the year. These classes include everything from locations to tackle and lure selection; thus have a lot of content. So, I limit them to 2 persons max at a time. Call 409-256-1265 for more information. Classes start at 500.00 and are conducted in my boat on the water at the actual locations. We cover a lot of area and burn a lot of gas.

Call 409-256-1265 for availability of trips and to reserve your fishing adventure. Check my website www.CrystalBeachCharters.com for prices and more information. You can also e-mail me captbryan@swbell.net for updated fishing conditions and trip availability.
