Thanks for the heads up. I run a Majek Texas Slam and I had severe pucker factor getting through it.it wont get dredged pay attention to the NOAA water depth gauge at sea drift .. if the .30 or lower its sketchy for the V-hulls to get over it.. I've run over it at .18 in my 19 shoal water cat .. kissing sand the entire time
I love fishing out of this area. And I am going to start making some phone calls - I will keep this updated we need to do things so our kid and grand kids can enjoy what we got to enjoy.I wish we could get a goFundMe together and collect up funds to have it dregded. I would imagine it would be a pain in the rear and need permits etc. We love fishing that area and would love to have it opened again. I guess someone would have to be willing to be in charge. Anyone ever done something similar legally and know what it would take?
found this digging some:
Man...this makes me sad, I really enjoy running that cut to get out. We're in a boat presently that used to do OK through there with the jack plate up and TRP. Then we had to replace TRP lower unit during covid and could only get a single. I am not sure how well it is going to handle that now.It's my understanding it was never dredged.....just the shrimper that worked for or near Charlies would nose in and prop wash it as needed for years and years.....tore up his boat or prop in the process.....therefore stopped doing it.
