    If you have a smaller boat, keep an eye on the tide. When it rips out BI can get a little sporty especially against the E or SE wind/swell. Keep tight to the N jetty and turn left right after the rocks....

    If you go out BI be aware the North Jetty has a portion that can be submerged at high tide. It's pretty obvious but people still manage to tear up their boats by turning too soon.

    You may want to note the fact that the last 200 yards of the North Jetty is submerged and does not end until the monument on the rocks at the tip. Have seen plenty of clowns run over the rocks in my day.

    You can turn due north once around the north monument and that will keep you inside of any shoals in big swell. To the NE of the channel outside the inlet are shoals that will break on big swells but hugging the monument keeps you in the deep. However, DO NOT turn due south at BI!!!! If you plan on fishing south head out about 1 mile past the south jetty and then head south slowly working your way back to shore. There is an old submerged south jetty that remains from after the new south jetty was done about 20 years ago - new to me at least b/c I grew up with the old one there. On big swell it breaks a mile out to sea on those shoals.

    Where are you coming from you might be better of launching in Waretown or Barnegat then a straight shot across the bay instead of driving out to bl and dealing with the traffic and traffic lights

    Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. I would suggest a very very very early start BL - LBI is going to b a zoo. Getting over the bridge will b backed up for miles as the morning goes on.

    If you don't wan't to deal with island traffic then you could go to Waretown. I launch out of South Harbor Marine $10 and it is about 4 miles right across the bay to the inlet. You would take Oyster creek channel across the bay and most plotters have this on there. 24' boat will be fine in the inlet just like said above watch for the submerged portion of the north jetty and there is shoals off the south jetty so stay in the channel for a good half mile before running south. Good luck out there.
