Fishing Update - Captain Bryan Brawner, www.crystalbeachcharters.com, 409-256-1265
June 29, 2016
As I hinted in my last report, there has been a definite change in east bay and the fishing has gotten a little tougher. Fresh dirty water has persisted and will for the next few weeks. Live bait is scarce on the peninsula most days and with the water conditions it usually dies anyway. We have been catching all of our trout on soft plastic tails in mainly chartreuse variations on 1/8 oz jig head. A slow presentation on the bottom is still the most productive. The specks are finally spreading out and there have been catches reported from the ship channel area by those soaking croaker. Hopefully that will eventually relieve some of the pressure on east bay.
For the long holiday weekend, the best bet will probably be surf fishing or late evening fishing with the crowd situation on the bay lately. Just be careful out there and be courteous of other anglers if you plan to get on the bay.
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
and very much appreciated gift. Call or e-mail me for more information.

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.
