There are several fishing tournaments hosted in Port O’Connor, many are invitation only, but it’s a fun time to be in POC. Watching the boats arrive for the offshore competition is a great spectator sport.
Below is a list of some of the bigger events held here in POC.
Tigrett Real Estate has been a strong supporter of Warrior’s Weekend and is honored to be an active part of the 2017 event. Last year, the Tigrett Team accommodated over 600 people. Participation continues to grow each year and no one is ever turned away.
This year’s event will take place the weekend of May 19 – 21, 2017. Port O’Connor is proud that our community is chosen to host the fishing expeditions for these service men and women. The troops arrive Saturday morning, by chartered buses from Brooke Army Medical Center, joining other wounded soldiers who arrive earlier from other military installations across the country.
Professional sand sculptors worked with 180 tons of sand to create a beautiful memorial for the visiting soldiers. The sculpture is on display at the Port O’Connor Community Center, you can’t miss it as you drive into town!
The entire community comes together to volunteer their talents in support of this amazing event. Please join us as we give a hero’s welcome to these men and women and show them the unique spirit of our fishing town.
Duck season is over and with the unusually warm weather it feels like Spring!
Fishing was phenomenal this past Fall and Winter, and we expect Spring to be excellent. Now is the time to plan your next fishing trip to Port O’Connor. If you would like to book a fishing guide, please check out these Guides and Outfitters.

Right now we’re in the middle of July and that means the annual POCO Bueno Fishing Tournament is here! This year the POCO Bueno tournament, in affiliation with POCO Fest and the POC Offshore Association, includes a 3-day Music Festival, featuring 10 bands and headlining local talent Kevin Fowler, Kyle Park, and William Clark Green.
The POCO Boat Parade and fishing tournament weigh-ins will still be featured along with local vendors and activities for the kids. A portion of the proceeds will be allocated to the POCO Bueno Charitable Foundation, which supports local groups such as the POC Fire Department, the POC Library, Fisherman’s Chapel, and Calhoun County EMS.
We asked Captain Stephen Boriskie, a local fishing guide, for an update on the fishing in Port O’Connor. According the Stephen, “fishing on the Mid Coast out of Seadrift Texas has been very satisfying and rewarding for those pursuing speckled trout using live bait or soft plastics. Our customers have been limiting out on speckled trout, most by early morning then picking up a few redfish later.”
“Recent flooding rains and swollen rivers have affected the waters we fish moving us around a bit however we’re finding plentiful saltwater right underneath the fresh and the fish don’t seem to mind. We look for this trend to continue through the rest of June and into July as we are in the middle of our Summer pattern.”
