A letter sent to Participants April 30, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that the Fondren family has decided to cancel Poco Bueno 2019. Unfortunately, we have experienced declining participation over the past few years, making the Tournament non-viable. All entry and Mano-y-Mano payments will be refunded in full.
Our dad, Walter Fondren III, driven by his love of Port O’Connor, started Poco Bueno in 1969 with a small group of friends to promote sport fishing along the Gulf Coast. We have been proud to carry on this great tradition since his passing in 2010. We love Port O’Connor, the Gulf Coast fishing scene and honoring our Dad’s memory in this way. We are eternally grateful for the amazing support you and so many others have shown us.
Poco Bueno and your participation has been an important part of our family’s life for the past 49 years. Port O’Connor will always have a special place in our hearts, and we hope you will continue to honor the spirit of Poco Bueno and our dad’s love for this Texas coast gem.
Walter Fondren IV
