I am thinking of going flounder fishing in Ludlam bay saturday and then clamming at low tide.

1. Is it any good for flounder?
2. Is there any ramps to launch from?
3. Anyone want to go?

Bottom,
The tide is low at 2:51pm in ludlam bay.
We should be able to hit the sand bar near corson's inlet around noon. I would like to fish for a couple of hours then clam.

There is a stone ramp at whale creek, but I am not sure if that will suffice for my 20' boat. I am partially afraid of getting stuck.

The other option is the seaisle ramp at the south end of ludlam bay, but I have not been there in years.

There is a pulic ramp in Strathmere. The ramp in Sea Isle is short and you have to watch your tide. It's best about 2 hrs before and after high tide.

I fished out of there for a while... Sea Isle ramp is short and the current is a little rough, but if you are a couple hours off low you will be fine. The ramp in strathmere is crap in my opinion. Whale creek stone ramp is actually quite nice, but no docks anywhere near it. We got stuck their only 1 time with our 17' boat but we come to find out our tires were not fully inflated so it was our own fault. We used it plenty, but be careful when you go out from Whale Creek to the main channel, it can be shallow, we always hugged the bank up until the old "Z" House by the stratmhere ramp.Then of course their is the ramp at CISP. Havent used it in ten years. Just not on the way for me.

MV,
Whale Creek is tough if you don't know it and draw more than 18". There is a free ramp on Flat creek right before the bridge out of Strathmere. Take your last left before the bridge. Watch your tide because it can rip there! Leave a few for me...I will be out there on Monday. Pig

Thanks guys.
It looks like the ramp in starthemere is near prescott terrace???? or is it closer to the bridge?

Strathmere is not that big, I am sure I can find it.

Ramp in Strathmere is at the south end of Bayview Ave. Ramp is way short and only good for a 20 footer from 1/2 tide up to the top of the tide. Whale creek is much better.

well,
may day keeps getting better. LOL

Guys I appreciate the help.

I guess I might have to launch from under the bridge and go north.

Whale creek is an option, but it is a PIA with a bigger boat unless you want to get wet.

Now if the ramp at the end of bayview does suck, I am down to one ramp. :(

My boat is a 20' c-hawk and does not draw much and I don't need much water to launch the boat. Guess I will post on saturday night now my day went. LOL should be adventerous to say the least.

I am sure Bottom Bouncer will eloborate as well.

IF your not comfortable with the water currents tides or whatnot, you can always use All-Seasons in Marmora. You can be in Ludlam bay in about 20 mins...easy ride and something to think about

Snags.

We had a Condo for 13 years across the canal from the Sea Isle Ramp. I used it many times with a 21 foot Dixie. You should not have any problem there as long as you do NOT go "off" the end of the ramp --- it's a 2 ft drop. (Saw a lot of interesting and "funny" launches.)

Did not fish Ludlam a lot -- generally went south towards Coast Guard Station. Suggest you try both ends of Flat Creek. Good luck.
