I have been coming here before I was able to drive. I am now 43 years old and will continue coming here as long as I live in San Augustine.

I was looking for a good surfcasting reel that didn't come from Walmart. David suggeted a good quality Diawa for only a few dollars more than Walmarts. Interesting discussion we had while David inst...alled new line on the reel. I have been buying bait from his previous location and the new location for years. See More

This is where I do all my shopping, bait, tackle and a great supply of poles too.
Not to mention all the great advice they have on different techniques and fishing holes in our area.

These guys caught a couple of nice sheeps off the bank today on our live fiddlercrabs! Both weighed in right at 4-1/2lbs they had a few slightly smaller ones in the cooler still.

I hope and pray all of you fared well during this devastating hurricane. We are still currently closed from the hurricane, until our power can be restored. We are however usually here anyways to man the generator every few hours so if you need any frozen baits stop by with cash and we can meet you outside with some.

Everyone stay safe and be prepared!
