The holiday season stirs up many fond memories from childhood to the present for many of us. Is it the sights of the beautifully decorated trees and creatively lighted homes that fill you with special thoughts? Is it the excitement of giving and receiving wrapped packages so painstakingly chosen? Is it the smells of cinnamon spice or evergreen? Is it the feel of the drops in temperature, however slight it may be in South Texas?

The coastal waters of Port O’Connor, Texas are a jewel of our great state. And the fish are aplenty! Trout, redfish, flounder… these are the most common fish that anglers catch and stock their freezers for that next fish fry or cookout.

Once upon a time, on a clear summer night, Cooper and Rosie watched the stars shine bright.
“This is amazing.” Rosie said with a smile. “Is that star getting closer?” Cooper thought for a while.
“It’s not getting closer, it’s just super bright. Wait a minute. Oh no, I think you’re probably right!”
