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.”

The 4th of July is right around the corner and of course that means our POC fireworks show is coming soon! You don’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind event.
The fireworks are shot off the pier at Kingfisher Beach, over the water, in a beautiful coastal setting. The hour long show will be held on Saturday, July 2nd beginning at dusk. Bring the family and come early to play on the beach!
American service men and women make sacrifices every day to preserve our freedoms. They do this willingly to protect the values we believe in and because they believe in us. Warrior’s Weekend is our opportunity to thank them and their families for their sacrifices.
Tigrett Real Estate has been a strong supporter of Warrior’s Weekend and is honored to be an active part of the Tenth Anniversary event. Last year, the Tigrett Team accommodated over 585 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 20 – 22, 2016. Port O’Connor is proud that our community is chosen to host the fishing expeditions for these service men and women. The entire community comes together to volunteer their talents in support of this amazing event.
