Wintertime Pier Fishing in Texas

It was a Saturday afternoon in the middle of winter, and here on January 31 at Padre Island, Texas, Bob Hall Pier was once again busy. Even though it's about 100 miles away from the devastation of Hurricane Ike, the pier still suffered enough damage from the storm that it was closed from September 2008 until mid January.
The fishing can be very good here in winter, but not always, and today was "not always," although there were steady occasional whiting, and the little "piggy perch."
But with sunny skies and a temperature of 70 degrees, nobody was complaining.
