  1. On Saturday, 9th of January of 2021, the sun will rise in Port O´Connor at 7:19 am and sunset will be at 5:47 pm. In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the low tide will be at 7:59 am and the high tide will be at 8:56 pm. The Lavaca river is full of trout and some reds.. it’s going to be 70 degrees and a slow incoming tide all day.. Tide movement is slow good for Kayak , I use it with my boat drift along the bank for casting an use trolling motor just for maneuvering corrections. .. POC from Lavaca is about 15-20 miles. Water Temp is 58 deg. it will warm during the day.


  2. Went to Lavaca River with granddaughter.. 20 to 30 mph winds prefrontal .. Water is excellent shape..Every Clear.. Even with the winds..
    See You Saturday morning.


  3. Sorry we had to postpone. Don checked it out this morning and it was high, muddy and running fresh. I’d hate for us to drive down there just to go for a boat/kayak ride. We will try again on the 23rd. Hope everyone can make it.
