Lone Star Shootout

By all accounts this year’s Lone Star Shootout was a tremendous success…lots of blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish and tuna were caught in this legendary offshore tournament, headquartered here in POC. Everyone enjoyed the “parade” of boats as they set out on that first day as well as the public weigh in on the last day. Of course there was a fair amount of chatter in between as news of “catches” came in and speculation of “boat leaders” circulated around town…all in good fun!

POCO Bueno is Here!!

Poco Bueno is a family-run fishing tournament held every summer in Port O’Connor, Texas. It was founded in 1969 by Walter W. Fondren III and some of his close friends who all fished out of Port O’Connor. Walter believed that Blue Marlin fishing would be a fun way to draw attention to the incredible resources that Port O’Connor had to offer the recreational fisherman.

The name Poco Bueno came about when Walter remembered a slang term in Spanish (poco bueno) that roughly translates to “it’s ok.”

Thirteen boats registered for that first year. In 1985, an Inshore Division was added in order to accommodate the overwhelming desire of Redfish and Trout anglers to participate. With the growing popularity of fly fishing on the Texas coast, a Fly Fishing Division was added in 2009.

In the years since, Poco Bueno has included as many as 115 offshore boats and 120 inshore teams. Through the years, it has kept its original spirit – a group of friends gathering to promote the sport fishing of Port O’Connor, Texas.
