Grab Your Kids and Head to Port O’Connor for A Free Reel Good Time
Get your fish on with the kids for free!
Some of my favorite memories with my boys are fishing from the piers in Rockport and Port O'Connor in the summertime. We would spend hours on end just enjoying the weather, our time together and of course, any bite we could get on our line!
We are a fishing family and love that our communities host kids' fishing tournaments, jut like this one hosted by Speedy Stop!

Thanks to the folks at Speedy Stop, fishing with your kids this weekend means BIG FUN and prizes for big fish too!

Kids Fish 2019
Even though the fishing is free, donations are being accepted and appreciated for a good cause. You can donate to Folds of Honor, through Eventbrite or through a raffle that is held in person at the Kids Fish event.
Folds of Honor is a 501(C)3 organization with a mission to empower military families by providing educational scholarships to children and spouses of military men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.
This year Speedy Stop is partnering with Folds of Honor to raise awareness and funds for this incredible organization. They are requesting a donation of $10/participant towards Folds of Honor. Please help us ensure no family is left behind on the field of battle.
Here is where you can get more information and get registered.
