Piper Channel leads from the Corpus Christi Ship Channel into the Island Moorings Marina and subdivision. It may be referred to by several names including the Mustang Beach Channel and the Island Moorings Channel. The channel has several small cuts that feed back into the East Flats of Corpus Christi Bay and is a good area to target redfish and flounder. Caution should be exercised when anchored or wading in the channel area. Large offshore boats use the channel and it is not uncommon for them to run the channel on plane, leaving large wakes behind.
