Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Julie & I grew up within 45 minutes of the bay house. We have spent many days fishing the bay waters of West Matagorda Bay. We have also introduced our 3 kids to saltwater fishing and they cannot imagine life without it. There is something to said about being on the open bay with your family.....many memories made as documented by the pictures of our successful fishing trips throughout the house.

Why the Owner Chose Palacios, TX, USA:
We purchased Fish Tales because of its unique location on Turtle Bay and its proximity to good fish throughout the West Matagorda Bay System. Also the small Jensen Point Community is a very seasoned coastal community with most homes owned by 2nd & 3rd generation families. The fishing is very good year around and incredible in the fall. The City of Palacios is only 5 miles away which has a nice grocery store and several restaurants plus 3 bait stands.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to Palacios (5 miles) for runs to town for groceries, restaurants and bait. Good fishing year around, incredible fishing in the fall. The house is situated to take maximum advantage of the prevailing Southeast sea breeze which allows relaxing below the deck even if the temperature is over 95 degrees. Upstairs hammock allows afternoon nap as well. Outside shower is very refreshing. The 300 foot pier crosses the Czech Point Reef which will hold fish year around usually black drum and redfish. The kitchen is designed open to allow entertaining, the house seats 15 (table inside seats 5, table on upper deck seats 8, picnic table under house seats 8). The house comes with a Weber charcoal grill (you have to provide the charcoal and lighter fluid). The home does have a washer & dryer for your convenience.
