Almost anyone that is from the Rio Grande Valley, or lives near the coast knows about Port Mansfield. And for those of us that do, we know that Port Mansfield is not on the way to anywhere, unless of course you are on your way to the water to fish. The fact of the matter is, there really isn't any other reason to go there.

There are no resorts, no causeways, no tourist traps or shell shops. There are no art galleries, no boutiques, and no water parks. As for what you will find - all of the essentials. A spot for your boat, fuel, groceries, and a place to put your head. But if you happen to be one of the truly fortunate individuals that has a cabin on the Intra-coastal Waterway, there is one other specialty item that you might not want to forget, and that is bait.

For the purpose of this story, I spoke with Capt. Harvey Faulkner of the Faulkner Fishing Association. Established for the preservation of this unique arrangement for family and friends,  The Faulkner Fishing Association holds the permit for cabin #1057 on the island side of the canal in Willacy County.

Cabins on the Intra-coastal Waterway are regulated by the Texas General Land Office. For more information in regard to fishing cabins or coastal issues follow this link:

The benefits of this type of cabin are more than one. That which can be said of real estate applies on the water as well...location, location, location. Simply put, for those who came to fish, it just doesn't get any better than this.

Brothers Harvey and John Faulkner made a recent trip with friends from San Antonio which proved to be quite productive fishing, as the photos suggest.


Conductive of a fun and friendly atmosphere, these cabins make an excellent family destination capable of providing continuous entertainment for anglers young and old.
