Warrior’s Weekend XII

We’ve just experienced another wonderful Warrior’s Weekend in Port O ‘Connor. This event touches the hearts of many in our community, including the staff and friends of Tigrett Real Estate.

Warrior’s Weekend started more than 12 years ago by a group of local fishing enthusiasts. The annual event now provides fishing, camaraderie, bonding and healing for our combat veterans and their families.

Our task at Tigrett Real Estate has evolved from providing rental units to providing donated accommodations for the veterans and families who drive in to Port O’Connor. Our ultimate goal is to provide the best quality housing available. This is accomplished by the generosity of numerous residential owners in our area who offer a guest room, apartment or even their entire vacation home to these heroes. This year we were able to make over 183 placements which accommodated over 300 people.

We are honored to be a part of this amazing organization. Each year our team at Tigrett Real Estate is overwhelmed by the generosity of our community. We appreciate all who donated housing and welcomed our veterans. It is truly a labor of love for us all.

Sunday Beach/Pass

Sunday Beach has been a popular spot for Port O’Connor residents and visitors to the area for many years. It’s one of the many gems that make our small town unique.

After Hurricane Harvey, in August of 2017, most of the dunes were leveled and a new pass was created. Below are a few recent aerial photos of the beach access.

POC is Seeing Red “Fish”

If you haven’t been to Port O’ Connor lately you are going to be pleasantly surprised how this community has banded together to bounce back after Hurricane Harvey.  All of our Tigrett Vacation Rental properties are back up to par, and storm debris in the bay is virtually nonexistent.  Our shrimping fleet is back at work and there’s plenty of bait at all of the boat ramps which are 100% in operation.

I personally have had a hand full of guided trips over the past 2 weeks due to the fact that people cannot get down here due to destruction in their areas.  I will tell you that we are ready and recovered to help you put your friends or customers on some fish of a lifetime.  The bay seems rejuvenated and the fish are hungry.  The trips I have had have enjoyed full limits of red fish and near limits of speckled trout along with a handful of black drum.

We hope that you are able to recover quickly and get back down to the end of the road to make those memories of a lifetime.  We are enjoying lighter crowds on the bay and its like we are back to being the best kept secret on the coast.
