GETTING READY FOR OYSTER SEASON

November 1st brings the start of oyster season on the Texas Gulf Coast. If you’re planning on taking your boat out to harvest some this season, there are some things you’ll need to know.

A valid fishing license with saltwater endorsement is required. You can harvest for your own consumption, but if you only hold a recreational license, you cannot sell the oysters. You can harvest by hand, using tongs or using an oyster dredge of no more than 14 inches in width. However, if you elect to use tongs or a dredge, you’ll need to purchase a Sport Oyster Boat commercial fishing license. There are size and volume requirements to consider as well.

There are many areas that are off-limits for oyster harvesting, so make sure to check out the maps on the Texas Department of State Health services website here. You’ll also want to pay close attention to avoid marked private lease areas. Once you have your haul, don’t forget to wash down your boat before storing it. Big Item Storage’s customers can do so conveniently at our washing station.

Oyster season along the Texas Gulf Coast runs Monday through Friday from November 1st through April 30th and from sunrise to 3:30 p.m. For more information on oyster harvesting and to state check regulations and requirements, visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission here.

USING LARGE STORAGE FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Office space comes with a high price tag, and many businesses are looking to downsize. With many employees also desiring remote work, a smaller office may suit your business well. But what do you do with all the extra items you need to store? That’s where large storage can make a huge difference.

Buying in bulk is a smart move whether you’re purchasing office supplies or inventory. But increasing your office space to accommodate those items is an expensive and inefficient way to manage your storage. Instead, a large storage unit lets you have the space you need to both store and utilize your items. Large units allow you to spread out boxes so that all of your inventory can be easily accessed. You can even add shelves for maximum organization.

Storing extra office furniture is another great use of your large storage space. You can even store seasonal supplies and promotional materials that are infrequently used. Why keep those in your office to clutter things up? Contact Big Item Storage to secure your large rental for your business today!
