Larrys Bait Camp

Sargent lost a legend of East Matagorda Bay Larry Mcnally of Larry's Bait passed away this week. He really loved East Matagorda Bay and he really loved Sargent.  Whether you were buying shrimp, oysters, crabs or other bait Larry was incredible. Larry would always take his time to teach me about the bay when I first moved here.  He taught me a lot about East Matagorda bay and he will be missed.  Our Condolences to family and friends.
