Fishing Update - Captain Bryan Brawner, www.crystalbeachcharters.com, 409-256-1265
April 27, 2016
The wind has had everything to do with it the last couple of weeks. We ended last week with light winds and good tide movements and with that the bite was outstanding. It became windy and a little rough on Sunday through Tuesday. The water clarity in the middle deteriorated and the bite was a little tougher. However with some grinding and hard fishing, we still managed a good mess of specks on both Monday and Tuesday. We have been catching most of our trout on Down South soft plastics in a darker red shad color. Live shrimp do work though on days where the winds are lighter. When the water is dirty and a little rough, the soft plastic just works better as you are covering more territory. Some birds are working around but there are too many smaller fish under them. The water temps are still on the cool side in the low 70's still. East Bay salinity is still good and the flooding hasn't hurt it. I still have a few openings after the middle of May for weekdays.
Thanks, Captain Bryan Brawner
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

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 www.CrystalBeachCharters.com for prices and more information. You can also e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org for updated fishing conditions and trip availability.
