I hear u! I now live in the Houston area. I used to live in the Corpus Area and fished that pier faithfully. Lots of good memories off that pier. Caught many shark, trout, redfish, spanish macs, and kingfish off that peir. Lost a few tarpon as well. I used to consitantly fish there between 93-97. It's been a long time since I've been there. I bet right now fishing is pretty hot right now there?
