About Sargent Texas Sargent is a fishing, boating, and water sports community
with a variable population, as most of its inhabitants are weekend
commuters from larger cities such as Houston, Austin, and San
Antonio. Sargent is on Farm Road 457, five miles northwest of the
Gulf of Mexico and twenty-four miles southeast of Bay City in the
eastern corner of Matagorda County. The Sargent area, with
its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, East Matagorda Bay, the
Intracoastal Waterway, and Caney Creek, is home base to many
commercial and sport fisherman and shrimpers. Red drum (aka
Redfish), Spotted Sea trout (aka Speckled Trout), Flounder, Blue
Crab, and shrimp are among the local favorites.
