I know a little about Lakes Bay but I am having a hard time following your directions.

Risley (to me) runs East-West. It sounds like you were fishing Sculls Bay or Methodist Ditch and ran to Lakes.

Yes, all of Lakes can be fished at high tide in a shallow draft vessel.

Next time head for the wood pile....that's THE BARGE. Follow the sticks allllllllll the way back and you'll be in the heart of Lakes Bay....one of the best places on the East Coast for wind surfing.

Candyman said it right...follow the sticks! There didn't used to be that many markers...have been stuck in there several times in years past. A few good early season weakfishing spots around there.

Most of Lakes Bay is 4-5 feet at HIGH tide.
The channel, which runs around the perimeter, was dredged two years ago and is pretty well marked with those sticks you saw.
If you plan to venture away from the channel make sure your tilt and trim works, and keep an eye out for the numerous commercial crab pot floats.
