you could sink the titanic in certain areas! I'm down south a little more but its locked up pretty good, havent been able to get the sneakboxes out in about a week or so
you want good looking decoys, most of the dumb ducks are dead

I cross the 34th street and 9th street bridge every day. Today 1/9 had ice except for the channels, however today was warmer than the past couple days and its suppose to stay this way throughout the weekend.

First picture is beesleys point facing the tuckahoe river, no ice just spots of it floating around. 9th street boat ramp is fine and ocean city's ramp around 22nd street should be the same. There's big ice patches floating around so take your time when it's dark

The pictures won't load, there is hardly any ice so I would go for it if you were interested... If you're interested in taking someone new I would be down to go, I missed my hunting license test but I can go and take pictures. I have the camo I need... If not than no problem

thanks for the updates ! unfortunately I doubt we will be going the winds forcasted for tomorrow look like more than I'm comfortable with ........ I'm not sure how bad that bay gets with 20-30 mph winds ?

I say go for it. I striper fish the back bays in a 14' carolina skiff in the dead of night in howling nor'easter winds and catch fish, but I'm young and crazy.

Anyone hunting coastal tomorrow be careful. Down here in Brigantine and the fog is setting in fast. Be safe!

Dude you'll be fine in a 20' boat plus they are calling SSE winds, most likely the bay won't be that rough even with the high winds
