Fishing off your own private pier

Right outside your back door is this wonderful fishing pier, where vacationers have caught loads of huge fish during their stay. How big, you ask? Well, imagine catching 15 – 20 lb Redfish, and 10 lb Trout! Not to mention being able to clean it without having to bring it inside! Take advantage of this location, often considered the hottest fishing spot in Sargent, Texas!

Additional Good Times!

Not only can you fish to your heart’s content from the private pier on the ICW, but you can easily launch kayaks for leisurely trips along the waterways. Bring bikes and ride along the beach, and take in some of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see across the San Bernard Wildlife Refuge. And if you’re bringing your own boat, the ramp is conveniently located just 1 mile away.
