All of the fishing was done by the mouth we started at 35 to 45 feet ended at 25 to 15 feet because of the tide took about 4 hours for 4 us, also nicks cove is a good place too launch but i found that they dont have a wash out any more, but it is real easy access to the bay shorter drive and oh yes much cheaper 5$ too park, still pretty shallow in there we launched a 23 foot lumaweld.

Hi waterfowler, great report! Is the boat launch at Miller Park or a different one?

Miller park is the real name, most locals know it as Nicks cove but its the same launch
