    Its causing erosion, its not navigable and there are talks about putting in a fishing pier which would be just fine IMO.

    I have a bunch of old timer relatives (mostly commercial fisherman and oystermen) from the Smith Point area that said in the late 40's and early 50's before they opened the pass they had a lot of trouble in that end of the bay with green moss and algae. Evidently it was so bad that it was affecting the health of the oyster reefs. Not sure how full of crap they are or if the pass opening had anything to do with it at all. Just hope we don't see any negative effects.
    Shut up and FISH!!

    would be very detrimental to the health of the bay, there is no other natural water flow on that end of the bay. That little pass is what makes the shorelines on the east end of East Bay so good. If you have never seen Black's in the spring or Frozen Point you are missing out. those areas would stagnate.

    Couldn't agree with you more Shallowist

    Call me crazy but it only makes sense, plus the cost of a 6-12 day job ( $6 Million )...

    Put that $$ back into rebuilding the Piers/TC Dike that were knock down/destroyed by Ike..

    The SHALLOWIST is RIGHT ! The middle and east end would not have the awesome fishing it does now. Back when they dug that pass, they did it for a REASON. Now, they just care about having to spend money to keep the ICW open . Yeah, beach erosion, sure, but some jetties would help that. But, again, that would cost too much.

    Heck it was dredged before my time. I have no basis of comparison before / after etc.. I'll keep my thoughts to myself

    I haven't made it that far East before. Guess I need to get there before fishing declines in that area.

    What do you all foresee happening and what kind of time line are we talking for the decline? Immediate or gradual?
