RE:South Tip Rip Trip

Dates are flexible, my first guess would be an 11am low tide to give us a hard rushing outgoing morning tide at the rip, warm sound water pushing into the shoals followed by access to the shoals on the west side at low near the drop off point (Powder Pt) for a lunchtime picnic; then a hard rushing incoming tide through the afternoon bringing cold atlantic current from the east side. July 8/9 or 22/23 fall into that category.

The opposite would work in terms of rip tides, both sides of the high. The trench between shore and the outer bar on the west side just might fill up with big fish on the flood... one never knows. This weekend, also July 14/15, 29/30th all fall into that category.

Waiting for August would put the likelihood of Bonito in the rips as well as bass and blues; but who can wait that long?

The best date will be the date when we have enough people to reduce the charter cost to a reasonable rate.

Any more adventurous individuals want to share the boat ride?
