People are going to have one hell of a time this summer. A lot of boats got stuck trying to cross sand bars, get out of canals at low tide, and just boating in general. This weekend was busy, but not like what is about to hit the inland bays. Be careful out there this memorial day weekend.
The pictures and video below from Driscoll drones should help you out a bit, showing you roughly where they are located.

Sand bar in Rehoboth bay. Notice the pyramid of sand where the channels converge. Another good place to fish.

Really the issue is not where the sand bars are but where you can and can not traverse them, even at high tide. That is going to be the trick this summer and we are going to try and help you all out with that soon with more videos and pictures form Driscoll Drones. Dredging won’t happen until fall and most of these bars are not on that menu.

You can take advantage of these sand bars for fishing. The deeper edges and ends of the bars would hold fish in the rips. The current will be a factor and stay out of the channel but they could produce some decent catching. The tops of the sand bars are good for clams not much else. Flounder like dark bottoms not sand.

Fish On!
