Did anyone venture out today? If so, how are the cuts looking?

The boat is still covered.... have orders to complete yardwork first...I did notice all of the temporary navigation bouys are still in the Harbormaster's driveway at Stage Harbor and there are still no fishing boats in Aunt Lydia's cove. Saw from the lighthouse parking area that the '87 cut is impassable at low tide.

We went out of the North cut this morning at high tide, Lots of water if you know where to go. We had John Tuttle escort us out my brother just bought his boat.

Thanks for the update Dory..... Did anyone mention whether the Huge glacial rock was exposed in the North Cut? It's been covered for the past couple of years.... Also, did you guys go out from the south section then head north around any breakers or was it straight-out at high tide?-- Thanks....

New Pics and drone footage at Chatham Three Breaks FB page! "Channel" From Stage Harbor to Morris Island reportedly has between 2.8-3.5 ft of water at HIGH tide! North Break wide and deep from Pleasant Bay but getting there from Aunt Lydia's very shallow. Enjoy....

I think the tide will deepen fools cut a touch now that the storms have subsided. The Bar is a different story. Looks like a mid tide or higher situation.

Still looks bad for the folks at Outermost and the Morris Island channel must be high and dry at low. Once I get my boat back from servicing I'm planning a recon run out of Ryders.

Was not the town looking to dredge some sand from the MI cut? Thought they needed sand for the beaches and this was the easiest to get.
Doubtful it will happen for this summer.

Great images garyh123! Lots of sand everywhere. As jbg108 said hoping the spring tides clean everything out a bit but those three dry bars outside the 87 cut are something.

From the Town:

"There are no plans for dredging that area (Morris Island Shoaling NE or SW) this year, prior to the boating season. If Town Meeting approves funding, we may dredge portions of the Morris Island area next fall/winter as part of a beach nourishment effort for Cockle Cove and Hardings Beach"

Apparently the town and coastal advisory team just visited the area for some recon, but not sure of the outcome of that visit or if it would accelerate anything without a special town meeting. Even if approved early, they would likely need a big dredge like the Army Corp of Engineers Currituck to move removed sand back toward Hardings. That boat is in very high demand, and at last check it was working the ICW back in Carolina. Shovel party on a dead low super moon might be the best bet along with the spring tides.

Good news is the North Cut is excellent. It's fairly deep and well marked. Lots of sand eels outside with whales, dolphin and seals on Crab Ledge. No Macks or Herring though which is dissapointing. Not Cod or Haddock either in the usual inshore spots out to 180'.

Thats good to hear. I thought the north cut would be the play this year. How close were you to high tide for this report?? The Macks will show up in masse within the month. Thanks for the update

Has anyone but out of Ryder's that can tell me how the shoaling at Fox Hill is compared to last year? I hear it is not going to be dredged this year but I was hoping the improved flow through the north cut would clean it out a bit. Any info on that would be appreciated.

Be interested to hear on Fox Hill as well. I don’t draw a whole lot but my friends boat does. It will be a couple weeks before I can recon, plus my boat is still at Ship Shops.
