When you want to enjoy an area of fishing that offers some of the most extreme differences in fishing the coastal area of Texas is the perfect place to be. At Port O’Connor you can find the coastal fishing experience you want with the deep waters of Galveston Bay and the shallows of the Lower Laguna Madre. This Gulf of Mexico coastline has fishermen flocking from all around to enjoy the amazing experience and try their hand at a variety of fishing that has brought luck and enjoyment to many of the saltwater anglers of the world.
The Port O’Connor area is steeped in rich history and heritage. This area which is located between the border of Texas and Louisiana and the border that runs from Texas and Mexico offers a small but thriving fishing area for all anglers to enjoy. The Port O’Connor area dates back as far as the 1500s and the tribes of the Karankawa Indians who were originally from the area who survived on much of the fish and natural resources this coastal region of Texas has to offer. With an area between Galveston Island and Corpus Christi Bay these Indians had the perfect setting for life near the water.
What you’ll find when you visit this coastline is an area thick with marsh grasses which make for some of the best hiding places for fish and the perfect place for you to try your hand catching a wide variety of gorgeous fish. These marshes are made up of submerged shoalgrass, widgeongrass and turtlegrass which all have a different purpose in this unique ecosystem along the Texas coastline. With the presence of these grasses you’ll find some of the greenest trout fishing waters along the Texas coast, especially after stormy conditions have been present.
Not only can you enjoy the open water fishing and some beautiful green trout waters, but you’ll be able to duck back into some secluded areas to gather some baitfish and crustaceans that make their way along the shallows. If you’re looking for a great place to capture speckled trout, redfish, flounder and some bait for the next day’s fishing this is a wonderful area to capture what you’re looking for. With the team from Bay Flats Lodge guiding you along the way you can have the fishing experience that you’ll certainly talk about for the rest of your life in the Port O’Connor area.
