Fishing Update - Captain Bryan Brawner,, 409-256-1265

June 29, 2015

There are still few changes in the fishing conditions in Galveston East Bay. Fresh water dominates the fishing pattern and will for several more weeks as the Trinity river will be flooding out of its banks for a while. Last week started out good but the bite really tapered off by Friday through the weekend as the west winds really picked up and really turned everything into a mudhole. Despite dirty and rough waters we were able to still get some good trout up to 24-1/2” mainly keying on slicks on oyster reefs in 5-7’ of water. The best color of lure is the TTF Killer minnow pictured above but most anything in chartreuse or limetruse is also working. Still it is important to keep your lure in touch with the shell. You will lose a few jig heads if you are fishing it correctly. We have not seen these conditions in a long time but we have adapted and are catching good on most days. Live bait has been a waste of time in East Bay but everyone has really enjoyed working a little harder and actually learning the skill of fishing and catching. I will be on the water through Friday and will post some updates on my Crystal Beach Charters Facebook page. I still have some days left in August and September but they are filling up. Book now to get your best fishing times.

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 and full day fishing trips on Galveston East Bay and also offer a no holds barred, on the water fishing class/seminar for Galveston East Bay. 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.

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 for prices and more information. You can also e-mail me for updated fishing conditions and trip availability.
