Port Bay is full of redfish, shark, trout, flounder, gafftops, whiting, croakers, sheepheads and drum. There is no commercial fishing in the Bay so fishing is GOOD! Kayaks/rafts and basic fishing gear provided as well as bright fishing lights on the pier. Don't forget to look for the dolphins!
Bring your boat! There is a boat launch very close by, and you can tie it up to our pier. Also, with your boat, you have easy access to Copano Bay, considered by all to have some of the best fishing on the Texas Coast!
