One of the most unique features of this barrier island, is its chain of connected freshwater lakes, something rarely found on other Gulf Coastal islands. The ancient dune and swale system supports a hydrology that provides the island's fish, mammals, birds and reptiles, with fresh water year-round. The island contains 762 acres of freshwater marsh, and 272 acres of open water in six lakes. No gasoline motors are allowed, or even necessary. Narrow channels make this the ideal place to fish or bird watch from canoe or kayak. Available species include largemouth bass, redear sunfish and catfish, or, as you see in this video, redfish!
