  One day I was fishing on the flats for redfish. Of course, I'm a fishing guide here in Rockport. I serve most of the Rockport Corpus Christi and Port  
  O'Connor areas well. I was fishing in a place in the middle of Aransas Bay, and I saw on an oil tanker passing by with an old ghostly looking man staring  
  and waving at me, so I moved to Nueces Bay.

The old house overlooking the Fulton Bay had seen better days. The old Carlton House was said to be haunted, and it looked the part. A friend of mine was renting it and let me stay there while I was in between jobs. It was late at night, and I decided to sit in the rickety porch swing mounted under a leaning oak tree overlooking the water. I'd been sitting in the swing looking at the old tree wondering how long the screws would hold when I noticed something moving in front of me on the road, just before the water.
 
 
The weather beaten road was pot-holed and water rutted. It was on this road that I saw something. Whatever it was appeared to be made up of fire flies, blinking on and off very quickly. I peered into the night, straining to make sense of the coolest optical illusion ever witnessed. This had the complete outline of a person walking. It was holding a light source, maybe a lantern, and it was swinging it back and forth. It gave me goose bumps until it disappeared after covering 45 feet of the road. I decided to keep this treasure to myself. The next night guests were over around 4 am, and the talk turned to sunrise fishing and getting live bait.
 
 
We were sitting in the enclosed patio porch when a friend said ''hey, look down there; it looks like someone is walking around with a flash light. '' I looked where he was pointing and recalled the mysterious flashing figure from last night and said ''that looks like what disappeared on me last night!'' As soon as I said that, everybody darted out the screen doors, some going left and some went right to see if it really was a person with a flashlight. It disappeared in front of them, the same as it did to me the night before.
 
 
Word spreads fast in a small town, and some recalled hearing about a lady hit on the road in the 40s. She had been carrying a lantern and was struck early morning before sunup. I tracked down some relatives of people who used to live in the house, and they had this to share. They told me of a time that as teens during sleepovers, they heard stories of a haunted stretch of beach near the old cemetery (which this area is nearby. )
