Stay Away From Bakers Channel Or You Have To Push

Bakers Channel Shoal … You can see where boats have cut across the shoal and carved a trench.

Weekly reminder, a little late for the crew in the pictures. Today Chris Driscoll took some drone shots of Bakers Channel and you ca see the trails carved through the bottom by motorboats trying to power through the shoaled in area. That is going to destroy your engine sucking up all that mud and sand.

Watching a Sea Doo pull a boat out of the mud was a first today. The sand bars are packed with people too. Keep in mind the inland bays are under a 24/7 swim advisory this time of year and as it gets warmer the water can get worse. DNREC Water Advisory … “ There is a permanent caution regarding swimming in the Inland Bays. The Inland Bays suffer from nutrient pollution, coming from failing septic systems, fertilizers and other sources. Water is slow to flush out of these bays, Indian River Bay, Rehoboth Bay and Little Assawoman Bay, so pollutants linger.”

Pushing the boat is not a fun way to end your day

Use Masseys Ditch and avoid getting stuck in Bakers Channel. The shoaled in area is on the Rehoboth Bay side of the Island(s). Also keep a small bottle of water mixed with bleach on your boats to treat any wounds you may get while on the inland bays. You just never know. When we shuck bait clams we wash our hands in bleach after, or we can get bad infection or food poisoning. Not a good time. That is nothing compared to what some of these bacteria can do to you.

Fish On!
