Recommended Posts

Anyone been in the bay since the storm? Any debris or new hazards to watch for?

I remember getting fogged in there one year with Scrubby, Ms.Grit and Elusive while striper fishing. Man, it was nice to know that Lighthouse was nearby by!

X2 hope they do raise it although i'm boat less now. Just got the insurance check and its not enough to replace what I had. Might have to look to do some charters with some of the guys now.

Sorry to hear about the insurance..they are beating everyone up and not keeping their end of the bargain for many..we will be doin a bunch of charters so keep checking in and I'm sure we will get out together a few tines

Word is from the guys on the dredge barges that there are a lot of boat submerged in the bay.. They do have them marked and when temperatures allow. They will be to salvage boat.. Also taking with the Belford gang a lot of sunken debri is a issue..

Leave the tower down there it would make for some great structure.

 

Although its not in the bay I heard the wreck of the arundo is gone. Completely blown away and that was in 60-75 ft of water.
