Going to make a stream run or two this week so ran my boat today to check it out. Been sitting 2 weeks. Went to CB Inlet.

The first set of cans going out are gone. Between the now first and second set was marking 5.5 feet where it was 10-11 feet a few weeks ago. Shoaling in bad.

This was around 3 hrs before low water with a falling tide and east wind. White water and breakers all the way across.

Prob OK at high water, but be carefull.

Midnight

Thanks for the update Midnight. Dredging 2-3 times per year is so much better than building a jetty 1 time. Where is the sarcasm button?

But if they build a jetty then we won't be wondering if or when they will dredge, how much it's going to cost and who will pay for it. What's the fun in that?

It's the things that make to much sense that drive me nuts when we as a society look the other way.

For anyone trying Carolina Beach Inlet I took a ride today about two hours before low tide and as Midnight Wind posted it was really bad. I actually made a decision not to try and get over the sand bar right in the middle of the channel by the third set of buoys. As I approached on the outgoing tide just above an idle the depth finder went from reading four to three feet.and they were breaking on the bar right across the channel. I wanted to be sure it was not a false reading on my new depth finder so my buddy Rich did the old Mop handle test and guess what, the depth finder works perfect. Suggest a lot of caution until they dredge if you try and use CB Inlet. I am stream bound Wed. early AM and for the first time I will be headed North to use Masonborough Inlet. Longer ride for me but bending a prop or rudder would ruin my day. I may run the inlet if it's really calm and high tide but that's a big maybe. Be careful folks!! Thanks Midnight for great information as usual buddy.

Where is the Like button. I'm with you on this one man. Growing up fishing in SC with Jetties everywhere made things a lot nicer in my opinion. Now that I fish out of the Shallotte I get nervous running in and out at low tide.
