Avoid Bakers Channel Use Masseys Ditch
If you haven’t heard by now Bakers Channel is shoaled in and you need to really avoid it, especially at low tide. Take Masseys Ditch instead, it takes a little longer, but is safer and better for your boat.
I know for some this is old news, but for many coming this weekend and every weekend until fall, we are just going to keep reminding you. This is necessary, constant news. The shoaling in the Rehoboth Bay side of Bakers Channel just keeps getting worse, hoping a good storm will clean it out. For now we have to deal with this until the fall dredging.
Here are a few examples in the video by Driscoll Drones of why you should avoid Bakers Channel.
Last weekend less people seemed to use Bakers Channel, but it would really be best to avoid the Rehoboth bay side. The Indian River Bay side is fine and is how you get to the sand bars to hang out, ironically the same ones helping fill in Bakers Channel. At low tide the shoaled area is less than 18 inches deep, if that.
Have a great weekend and safe boating.
