I am moving to the Sweeny area and had some questions. What is there to hunt and fish in the area? I've heard there are a lot of bugs and snakes. How true?
Any and all information you may provide is welcomed. I am interested to hear about any and all aspects of the area. Thanks, Jay

My wife's gandparents live in Sweeny, and we were there just a couple of weeks ago. I can't comment on the hunting question, but it is very close to the coast and I'm sure fishing opportunities abound.

I like the area. It is very flat, very humid and only gets below freezing once or twice a year. There are lots of trees, grass and brush due to the coastal showers that keep it moist, so I guess there are some snakes and bugs around. I've never had a problem with them while visiting, but I haven't been out in the woods either. Still, keep your eyes open and you'll be fine.

What is bringing you to Sweeny?

FISH2026,

The area I inquired about is located near Clute, Lake Jackson and inland from Freeport. The actual town is called Old Ocean. It is located near the Conoco refinery.

Some of the newspapers ran articles regarding the mosquito problems in the area. I was hoping to gain insight from some residents in the area. I understand there is a lot of humidity in the summer.

Thank you for your reply,

Jay

very humid, but the area you are referring to is called "Brazosport". Very nice, laid back area, but the mosqitoes are bad, and dont worry about snakes, spiders, etc... we have plenty of traffic and cars that scare em all away. :-)

Jay,
I live in sweeny, It is the sweeny-old ocean area. there really isn't much in old ocean but Philips. there is a stop and go and a church and a post office. about the hunting and fishing. well most people here hunt pigs, or hogs. the fishing is good. you can go down to the river and catch catfish (my personal favorite). people also drive down to surfside and fish in the gulf. it is not that far from sweeny. I personally don't fish, so I don't really know what all the names of the fish are. my husband and my two sons love to fish so they would know more about it than I do. as for the bugs. well.....we do have a lots of mosquitos at times. but it just all depends on the time of year. how wet it has been, the more rain the more mosquitos. right now it is march and the mosquitos are not bad right now. there might be a few around dark time. but the days are good. this is a good place to live. it is small, and most everybody knows everybody else or you know someone who knows them. as for the weather it is very Humid but I still wouldn't want to live anyplace else. anyway I hope this has helped you out.
