The Show

Show

The “SHOW” can be witnessed at various times in POC and in various places..

The “Show” can be witnessed at Froggies Marina and The Fishing Center on holiday afternoons, July 4th for example!  The “SHOW” is in reference to the two crowded boat ramps and boats full of people headed in to load their boat back onto the trailer.  Sounds simple right?  For some it is simple and for many it is the impossible quest.  It is some of the best, quality entertainment you will find in POC.  Wind, current, lack of boat driving skills, pressure from a couple of hundred spectators, and many other factors make the “SHOW” very funny and entertaining at times!!  Send your pics of the “SHOW” or any stories you have of the “SHOW” and we will get them up for everyone to enjoy...

Poco Bueno Tournament 2002

Port O'Connor Saltwater Fishing

Port O’Connor, Texas continues to provide some of the finest outdoor fishing opportunities along the Texas coast. Bay and offshore fishing here is world class. Espiritu Santo Bay is a fine example of a very balanced bay system loaded with speckled trout and redfish. The jetties and Pass Cavallo are two quick access points for offshore anglers. Red snapper, amberjack, ling, and kingfish are very easy targets that you can catch inside of 35 miles. The beachfront around the jetties and Pass Cavallo are great tarpon spots from as early as May and as late as October each year. Tarpon pushing the 200 pound mark are common each year. Underwater rocks, offshore platforms, and wrecks starting around 45 miles offshore of P.O.C...
