I would much prefer getting to find/know a spot like this.A good wading spot this time of year is near confederate reef. Coming from 61st street take a right when you dead end into the seawall. Drive down to 8 mile road follow 8 mile road untill it almost dead ends into west bay. There is a road to the left turn there and it dead ends into a marsh flat. Walk the shore lines of the marsh islands. Reds, Specks, and Flounder. Good Luck.
I heard you on this one - I would say then stay AWAY from Sea Wolf park! You have to struggle just to find somewhere to cast there! 18th Street Pier in San Leon isn't so bad and everytime i've been there only around 10 people or so there. Has a good bar/resturant at the pier also. I haven't tried the pine gully - i think i might though, we'll see.I am not a fan of piers.
Well, it's not the piers ... it's the people that tend to be fishing them.
