    It's sanding in. I hired a pilot to fly over and he took great photos of all that slp area January after Ike hit. All the guts you see now were blown out clean, including those smaller finger guts. At that time, some of those smaller guts went out into deeper water. Not anymore.

    I have a house in Sea Isle and have not been able to get down to the Pass this year due to working too much. Last summer I took the path in this picture. Is the route y'all are referencing in the same general location or is it now somewhere else? Any details are appreciated... hoping to go out next weekend! Thanks as always guys!

    Yes, that pretty much is the correct path. Toughest part is the first part coming from West bay into the path to take-lotta shoals around and I've been stuck and seen quite a few others stuck because we missed the channel by a few feet. Don't try it in a big boat on a low tide.

    BTW, I made it through about a month ago in my 23' CC Robalo with twins and a full tank of gas (120 gallons) and of course a cooler full of beer, plus about another 80 pounds of ice. I churned a little sand/mud while on plane but no issue in or out.

    Thanks all ... I'll just need to get out there and "feel" my way through.

    As for Reel Therapy15's comment of green and red channel markers... i will assume this is sarcasm! In all my years on West Bay, i have not seen such "sophistication" normally only some white PVC pipes... has something changed here?

    I promise they are there however when I say Chanel markers I do mean colored PVC. Should have clarified that earlier on.

    My bad.

    Default West Bay to SLP Update...

    I ran the above mentioned route to SLP several times last Fall without issue... plenty of water (except right where it meets West Bay). Planning to heading out this coming weekend for the first run of the season (boats been in the shop) and was wondering if the channel has changed much since October? Any feedback is appreciated!
