A quick Sunday trip to the Merry Pier yielded the first sign that winter has arrived- in the form of an enormous Whiting. Seriously, I thought it was a rat red as I brought it to the dock. As you may know, whiting are schooling fish, so I expected to get a few dozen more, but it was not to be. A small grouper and a few lizardfish were the only other action of the day. Still better than getting skunked.
