A buddy of mine who grew up in Port Arthur recently launched at Sabine Pass and told me of the new first class triple ramp public launch and park there. This is in addition to the great park and facility at the Sabine Lake causeway and also the public launch and harbor at Pleasure Island on the West side of the main lake....all of these are relatively new. I used to fish out of Port Mansfield and there were excellent public launches and cleaning facilities on both sides of the harbor. The Freeport jetty park is very nice but is useless to boaters. I know what is needed...vision and a commitment by the TPWD for a new facility. But I don't know how to get it done. I'm thinking some greater Houston based fishing/conservation organization could make a presentation at a TPWD commissioners meeting. A video presentation comparing Freeport to other parks and launches would be an eye opener. Local support from the cities of Freeport, Lake Jackson, Surfside and area refining companies would be essential. Is there a fisherman state rep for that area? Does anyone know the outdoors editors for the Houston Chronicle...the poor Freeport facilities would make an interesting outdoors article? Thanks Y'all for letting me rant on the Bluewater board.
