It was cold Tuesday morning -- really cold, by most Coastal Bend residents' standards -- so who would go fishing in weather like that?

3News Photojournalist Preston West actually ran into someone who did just that.

"They probably think I'm crazy, but I love it. It's not that cold," said Michael Casarez, who was out fishing alone near the American Bank Center. He hadn't caught anything when he was interviewed, but he wasn't giving up.

It would be easy to assume that Casarez was from up north, and that's why the cold wasn't a big deal for him; but that's not the case. He said he's a Corpus Christi resident.

He did, however, say that his face and hands were cold.
