DAGGER POINT. Dagger Point is a landing on the western shore of San Antonio Bay in the northern tip of the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Calhoun County just east of the Aransas-Calhoun county line. In 1952 a triangulation station and a single dwelling were the only structures on the sand mounds. By 1985 the station was gone.
