The J-Hook refers to the hooked point at the end of Matagorda Island. South and west of this point is a shallow sandy channel that can be good for trout, redfish and flounder spring, summer and 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.
