Fishing Update - Captain Bryan Brawner, www.crystalbeachcharters.com, 409-256-1265
December 6, 2014
There have not been many changes since my last report. Fishing has been good between fronts on the warmer days and should continue through the month. I took my boat in for maintenance last Monday and am finally getting it back after a week due to unforeseen Yamaha defect problems. If I did not have a regular maintenance schedule which I stick to, the Yamaha engine defect would not have been caught in time and would have really cost a lot. I will be back on the water in a couple of days to take advantage of the good bite going on now. Late fall pattern for those who have taken my class!

With the stronger than normal cold fronts hitting every few days now, there have only been a couple of days each week which we can get a window to get out and fish around the winds and extra low tides. When we get a couple of warmer days between fronts, fishing can be outstanding. The main key to finding fish this time of year is to find active bait, whether it be pods of nervous mullet or shrimp jumping out of the water. As the water warms toward the middle of the day, drifting shoreline areas where there is mud and scattered shell pay off as the fish get active when the shallower water warms up. As I stated before, I'm always looking for bait activity. Berkley Gulp 3" shrimp or curly tail mullet is always a good go to bait this time of year for most species of the fish we are targeting. I have had to reschedule several trips this month due to weather conditions but it looks like the long term forecast is looking good for the end of the month into December. We always have big catches of large specks, reds, and flounder during the days in December when we have a little warm up and decent tide movement. I have several days still open the first couple weeks of December. Also, I have a few gift certificates still available. It is time to buy and reserve your certificate now. I only sell a limited number of these certificates to give the recipient the most days to choose from to take their fishing charter or Galveston East Bay class.
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. Some weekend dates are available for classes now.
Fishing is just getting better as we move into the Fall. I have a few weekdays open in November and December but they are starting to book up. I also have some open weekend days left in November but they are going quickly. I also have some openings still for Thanksgiving week. Book now to get the best days for your fishing adventure or your East Bay class/seminar. The holidays are approaching quickly!
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 475.00 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 email@example.com for updated fishing conditions and trip availability.
