The Texas Coast
With over 300 miles of coastline the Texas Coast is as diverse as it is long. From novice to expert the Texas Coast has something to offer every level of fisherman.
With the entire Texas Coast to choose from, KT chose Port O’Connor as his base of operation. Port O’ Connor was chosen for the incredible variety of it’s fishery. The backcountry lakes and endless miles of clear water flats make it a top destination for sight-fishing to the most popular of all Texas game fish, the redfish.
While KT spends the majority of his time poling the backcountry for redfish and sea-trout, he lives for those days when the conditions allow him to chase The Silver King, the giant Tarpon. Port O’Connor’s close proximity to the open Gulf through Pass Cavallo makes it an ideal destination for those seeking to battle with giant migratory tarpon.
The gulf is a short boat ride through Pass Cavallo. If the conditions are right you can chase tarpon in the Gulf at daybreak and in a matter of minutes find yourself sight-fishing to reds on a clear grass flat. Mackerel, ladyfish, jack crevalle, and little tunny can be found along the beach and inside the bay.
Larger boats access the Gulf through the Matagorda Bay Jetty and only have to travel a few miles to find snapper, grouper, cobia, tuna, amberjack, Dorado, and billfish.
Many well-known billfish tournaments call Port O’Connor home. The Poco Bueno gets top billing and is held every July. All of this and more make Port O’Connor a must see destination on your next trip to the Texas Coast!!!
