The fishermen were catching all sorts from small shark to bigger fish. You could see the dolphins close by as well. Have a meal and walking along the pier is free, well worth it.

It's a lot of fun walking out onto the fishing pier. You see the most interesting creatures from the sea and dry land. These guys were catching stingray. In addition, Jimmys on the Pier is located there. It's prettygood and the view is great.

A great view, good fishing, but Texas needs a bottle law. I don't think I have seen so much garbage and old bottles anywhere in the country as this area.More
