Whale Tail Inn

Welcome to the Whale Tail Inn!

This beautiful home was recently fully remodeled, and has everything you need for your Texas Coastal Vacation! This 3 level home has a spacious luxury kitchen, living room, primary bedroom, full bathroom, and laundry on the main level.

There’s an upstairs loft bedroom with a half bathroom, and a large ground level bedroom with an  attached full bathroom.

Outside, there is a large deck off of the main level where you will love relaxing with the ocean breeze! Under that, there is a nice yard with firepit and a great spot to grill the days’ catch from the fishing pier! Don’t forget to bring or catch some bait for the provided crab traps too!

The Whale Tail Inn is located in the same neighborhood as many of Sargent’s restaurants and awesome food trailers. Bait Camp and boat ramps on the same street too! Sargent Beach is just a quick 5 or so minute drive away too!

There are 2 security cameras – one above the garage, facing the driveway, and one at the back of the house, facing the jet ski lift. The lift is off limits to guests. The cameras are for security purposes only and are not actively monitored during guest stays.

Outdoor Access

Offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the Texas coast is a thrilling pursuit, attracting anglers seeking larger game fish. The prime time for offshore excursions is from late spring to early fall, drawing in migratory species. Coastal Texas distinguishes itself with proximity to the nutrient-rich Gulf waters, providing a fertile ground for a diverse array of game fish. Anglers revel in the accessibility and abundance of offshore opportunities, making this region a standout nationally in the adventurous realm of offshore fishing.

Sargent’s kayaking trails offer diverse experiences. Allen’s Landing provides easy access to East Matagorda Bay, while Rudasill’s Cut is a quick route to the bay and marsh areas. Jetty Park is popular for beach access and paddleboarding. Little Boggy Bayou is a great spot for fishing, but caution is advised due to alligator habitat. Oyster Lake, Parker’s Cut, Rawling’s Cut, and River Bend Boat Ramp offer additional opportunities for fishing and birding. Riverside Park serves as a scenic starting point for paddling downstream, and St. Mary’s Bayou provides a vast marsh for exploration. While 3 Mile Lake requires a 4×4, it offers a marsh area on Matagorda Beach, and FM521 Park serves as both a ramp and camping site. These destinations showcase Sargent’s natural beauty, catering to both short and extended paddling adventures.

Waterfowl hunting in coastal Texas is a unique challenge, requiring adept decoy placement in marshes and bayous. Dominated by mallards, pintails, gadwalls, and northern shovelers, strategically positioned decoys simulate natural feeding and resting areas. The intricate network of coastal wetlands and estuaries offers unparalleled opportunities, setting coastal Texas apart in the thrilling pursuit of waterfowl hunting opportunities.

Fly fishing along the Texas coast offers an exhilarating experience for anglers targeting redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. Ideal during the warmer months, from late spring to early fall, the shallow flats and marshy bayous create prime habitats. The expansive saltwater flats near barrier islands are renowned for fly fishing, posing a unique challenge with sight-casting to cruising redfish. Coastal Texas stands out for its diverse estuarine environments, offering fly fishermen a dynamic and adventurous landscape.

Inshore fishing along the Texas coast is a year-round delight, drawing anglers with the promise of diverse catches. Optimal times vary based on the targeted species, with redfish active in shallower waters during warmer months and speckled trout abundant in spring and fall. Black drum, sheepshead, and flounder provide additional opportunities. The vast system of bays and estuaries sets coastal Texas apart, offering a mosaic of fishing grounds that cater to different preferences and skill levels, creating an adventurous playground for fishing enthusiasts.
