January at Ft. Pickens

GiricGiric Posts: 3 Greenhorn
My wife and I will be camping at the Ft. Pickens campground of Gulf Islands NS about the middle of January. I have a saltwater rod and spinning reel that's seen saltwater once and many failed attempts at going after catfish from some East Tennessee riverbanks. I really don't know what I'm doing, if I'm honest, except relaxing while throwing things in the water that I can later retrieve.

Anyway, any suggestions for fishing from their licensed pier? I haven't firmed any plans, so I might get a license as well in case that pier might be crowded. What can I go after that time of year in that area? My Google-fu is failing me. Any help is welcome.
