We were cruising the bayside for Christmas
week (as in, 3 wk ago), and we saw some 4.5' readings IN THE CHANNEL, so there is some silting. I do draw that, though, and never did bump, so maybe it was critters/growth on the bottom.
And yes, the crab traps are insane, not set in transects, and right damn IN the channel. Someone oughta call DMR ;-)
Love the inside. More to see. Calm empty anchorages
. Even got a green flash sunset!
edit: the shallow bits were west of Snake Creek IIRC. You should be ok
