About Julie Fuechec
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.
Julie Fuechec purchased this House in 2005
Why Julie Fuechec chose Palacios
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Perfect for fishing and crabbing! The house was neat, comfortable and had everything we needed.
We had a great time! If the wind and rain had cooperated it would have been perfect. We still caught a few fish and a few crabs and totally relaxed. We will be staying here again! Thank you!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a great time. Next time maybe the weather will be better.
A great place to stay in Palacios!
This is a wonderful house with plenty of room for two families to share. It was wonderfully decorated and had that family feeling. It is on the water with a great dock, expansive porches and beautiful sunsets. There is even a boat ramp at the end of the street. It is a real bay house fish camp. And although we did not have time to fish, we really enjoyed the overall experience. The owners were very friendly and informative as well.
House has an awesome pier and boat lift. Neighborhood is very friendly. Great place to just sit on the patio enjoy a cold beverage even if the fish aren't biting. Would for sure go back
Rest and Relaxation is the Key
This is a really nice house and location. If you're looking for a very peaceful, restful stay, this could be your place. Turtle Bay is a secluded bay just outside of Palacios. There are a few restaurants and stores in town or you can always run just up the road to Bay City or Port Lavaca for more choices. We had a very restful and enjoyable stay.
Ideal getaway from the city!
My family had a great time staying at your home! We all had a turn enjoying a nap on the hammock on the balcony. We were able to leave our boat tied to the dock the whole weekend, by the way is any fisherman or womans ideal boat storage/fish cleaning setup. Although the conditions and time of year for catching fish under the lights at night weren't ideal, my brother and I slept on the pier not wanting to miss a bite. it was a short boat ride to some great fishing spots where we were able to catch a few fish and buy fresh shrimp right off the boats. The house was incredible and had more than enough room for our family, although we didn't spend much time inside because the outside was setup perfectly to spend quality time with each other. Just started getting the hang of the ring game right before we left... Very nice place! Thanks a lot!
Family fun for all!
Plenty of room for our whole family. The boys enjoyed fishing and us girls enjoyed sitting in the shade watching the baby play in the sprinkler. It was great having a kitchen to cook for all of us instead of trying to figure out where to eat or spending too much money. The owners are great and when we did have some trouble they were quick to make it right. We look forward to staying again.
Due to Hurricane Harvey my home will not be rentable until mid October. But while home will be available there will be no pier!
