Congrats, very nice fish! Especially without a gaff.

Annually, there is a water/fish quality piece put out (can't remember who, but might even be the DFW?) that rates the water at most beaches and harbor areas. They also give recommendations on how frequently you should be able to eat different types of fish based on your age and other factors. Some fish, like Croakers, you should pretty much never eat from harbors. Others, like Halibut, are rarely rated at less than twice a week (even for children, and caught in harbors). The tendency of the fish and its food supply to wander in and out of the harbors will contribute to the variations. Maybe somebody can post up the most current ratings?
