192.029 Acres located near Bayside, Texas, and fronting Copano Bay. Copano Bay is located in Texas, just west of Rockport off Refugio and Aransas counties. The bay is surrounded by flat, marshy terrain surfaced by sand and dark clays that support mesquite and grasses. The area is home to numerous migratory and recreational birds including whooping cranes, royal and gull-billed terns, black-necked stilts, roseate spoonbills, reddish egrets, white-faced ibis, seaside sparrows, brown pelicans, mottled ducks, black-bellied whistling-ducks and herons. Famous attractions here include the Copano Bay State Fishing Pier, which is a nearly 500 acre concession-operated state park. Others include Goose Island and Matagorda Bay.
The shoreline from Redfish Point south toward the community of Copano Village offers excellent wade fishing for redfish and trout over hard sand bottoms with scattered shell and grass beds in troughs. Waders also should inspect the series of small estuaries that open to the bay through small cuts. Just off this shoreline are shoals that also hold fish.
The property provides abundant migratory duck and geese activity along with other native wildlife throughout the area for hunting opportunities.
Copano Bay serves as a nursery for shrimp, which attracts a large number of redfish. Abundant collections of Black drum, Flounder and Trout, can also be found in the bay. Oysters grow in large numbers to form elongated reefs "oriented perpendicular to tidal flow" in the estuary. The reefs provide habitat for fish and sustenance for a wide variety of birds including the Black-bellied Whistling-duck, Black-necked Stilt, Brown Pelican, Gull-billed tern, Reddish Egret, Roseate Spoonbill, Seaside Sparrow, White-faced Ibis and the Whooping Crane.
This property is located approximately 25 miles from Port Aransas and 35 miles from Corpus Christi.
