The shallow grassy areas around Grass Island can be very productive for trout and redfish most of the year. On the northwest side of the island, the flats drop off into a gut that is 5 to 6 feet deep. This drop-off is worth exploring.

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.
