There is no water in most of it, you really have to know the area. Last time I was there it wasn't marked at all, hit ground, caught no fish etc.. This is "wreck inlet" that i'm talking about, pretty sure the same one you are. I went in the back side too, just trying to save you some gas.
I have 24 ft Crist craft center console. I have no intension of running thru wreck inlet. I have fished outside of it and know better then to try to pass thru. What I am asking is, can it be fished coming in from the back channel. It looks like some nice water by hoffmans point.
I used to fish the area from Hoffmans to the Wreck Inlet and there was good water back there. I enjoyed that area alot and caught quite alot of fish there! It is a peaceful with next to no boat traffic back there.
Unfortunately the channel between the ICW at Black Point and Hoffmans filled in and the markers were removed. This happened about four years ago. I have seen some smaller boats running across to there, but I would not risk it. The trip from Absecon to Wreck Inlet on the inside is a long trip with many slow zones but maybe worth it!
Your 24 should be fine around the point and up to wreck . The darker water is the deeper water .
Just avoid a couple of hours before and after low tide.
Granted my boat is smaller then yours but i'm up there all the time and share the water with other cc's .
I have a 22 Grady and run that inlet all the time high or low.It changes all the time so if you dont do it every now and then you will be in for an adventure.Its nice because you dont get the yahoos in there on those big bite nites.As far as going from black point to wreck i will only do it at the high point of the tide.3 cheers for the unmarked wreck inlet!
