Ayres Reef is a shallow oyster shell reef that separates Ayres Bay from Mesquite Bay. The Ayers Dugout is a deep cut through the reef. Concentrate on the areas around this cut. This area can be good for trout and redfish spring, summer and fall. The best time is in the fall.
This area is good for wade fishing. Wade fishing can be very rewarding but can also can be dangerous for the inexperienced angler. Watch out for holes, drop-offs, soft bottoms, oyster shells and stingrays.
