Crazy morning of fly fishing...

Captain Joe Des Rosier and the middle Texas Coast did not disappoint. What a morning! We had a slam before 8am including the elusive Sheepshead. And a big one at that! Come see us in Rockport. Call, text, or email if you want to talk about setting up a fishing or sightseeing excursion.  Tim Milligan 512-300-7118 / tim@deaconspoint.com

Mesquite Bay Oyster Reefs - Preserved by TPWD!

Image
UPDATED 11/3/2022 The TPWD Commissioners voted on November 3rd, 2022 to adopt the TPWD proposal and close these reefs to commercial harvest permanently. A big win for mother earth today! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible. -- There are so many reasons to preserve these vital resources that go way beyond fishing. The reefs have been damaged by storms and recent overharvest. A proposal from Texas Parks and Wildlife will close these reefs to commercial fishing to allow them to recover before it is too late. Once a reef loses too much of its vertical structure it is almost impossible for it to recover naturally.  Learn more from  CCA Texas  and  Flatsworthy Texas  here.  www.rescueourreefs.org Public comment is open until November 2, 2022, right here.  TPWD Public Comment Watch the series of informative videos here.  Flatsworthy on YouTube Hear the perspective of a respected professional guide, Jay Watkins here.  "Are we going to lose this?"
