To get to the first sandbar, you should have no problem wading unless the surf or tide is abnormally high. Normally the gut before the 1st sandbar is a foot to maybe 3 feet deep depending on where you are at on the Texas coast.

First bar isn't that deep. I'm six foot and can usually get to the second bar with water to my chest. Third bar is where you start swimming.

I have caught fish over the sandbars and in the guts, but I have caught many more fish in the guts. I catch the most trout in the 2nd gut.
