For people who want to make sure that their turkey doesn’t add to their waistline, the Sunday Bridgewalk is a fantastic option. Beginning at Heritage Park, hundreds of people walk (or run) across Corpus Christi’s beautiful Harbor Bridge. There are four different BridgeWalk routes you can choose from — run the Harbor Bridge, walk the Harbor Bridge, run the Shoreline Route-BridgeWalk Without a Bridge, or walk the Shoreline Route-BridgeWalk Without a Bridge.

In particular, large numbers of freshwater drum usually appear close to Indian Point Pier around this time. So what are you waiting for? Grab a rod, pack some lunch, and enjoy some of the finest fishing that Texas has to offer!
