Thanks for sharing. I live down here in Somerset County and rely on posts like yours. Definitely saves me time and gas!

my freaking back and shoulder are tired from all the spudding this weekend....we found areas to fish, but if you took 5 steps in the wrong direction without spudding you were risking going through.  we had to extensively check the entire area we wanted to fish...leaving we had to jump the collapsing shoreline... might be the end i'm thinking  :-\
