About the Property

Exceptional Waterfront Home-- 4 Bedroom 4 Bath with gameroom

Welcome to the " Mad Dog Fin and Feather" located in picturesque Copano Bay. My home offers some of the best fishing and bird watching on the Texas Gulf Coast. Combine this with the awesome sunsets and smell of the fresh salt air and you will never want to leave. This spacious home has three living quarters. There is an upstairs (third floor) "Captains Quarters" with private En Suite including a Jacuzzi Tub,Shower and extra large closet with its own balcony overlooking the bay. The second floor includes two bedrooms, each with its own En Suite, a large fully furnished kitchen and dining area, a great room and a game room with pool table. The downstairs living area includes a small bedroom with its own En Suite bath area. The remainder of the downstairs includes a washroom and 2 car garage and workshop with ample parking outside..
My home has a lighted fishing pier and two boat docks. Catching the "Texas Grand Slam" a Flounder, a Speckled Trout and a Red Fish from this pier is not uncommon. I have fished all around the Texas Gulf Coast and this is absolutely the best fishing pier that I have ever fished. There is a BBQ pit waterside with a couple of rod holders to fish the channel for Reds while you smell the Brisket and drink some Texas Tea while listening to your favorite beach tunes.
Yes my house has a Satellite TV and I also have WiFi---- however I suggest turning off the TV and Computer. Put away those cell phones and learn to relax and listen to the sounds of nature with each sunrise and sunset.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I am a "Native Texan" I have been fishing the Texas Gulf Coast since I was old enough to walk and my first memory of fishing was on the Rockport Jetty in 1958 at the age of five.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, TX, USA:
I have fished in the Amazon for Peacock Bass, the Mexico Coast for Dolphin, the Alaska streams for Salmon the Argentina rivers for Dorado, Canada for Northern Pike and Walleye and the Texas lakes for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass,White Bass, Crappie and Catfish. However, there is nothing like the Texas Gulf Coast anywhere in the world. And I can honestly say that I have never had more fun fishing anywhere than from my pier on the MD Fin and Feather.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When I was 18 I remember my parents fishing in Copano Bay from a pier located at Rattlesnake Point. My dad said that this was his favorite place to fish and I can remember mom and dad telling stories about all the fish they caught from this pier. This very same pier was on the property adjacent and across the channel from the MD Fin and Feather and was blown away in one of the many hurricanes some 20 plus years earlier. When I saw house for sale and the location--I could not resist.
