Has anyone been able to get a good look at the entrance to Essex and Ipswich River this year? The bars move around a lot so I would like advance notice of what to expect.

Good question.

Any idea of the Status of the launches? I'd imagine that all the docks are in?

I hope to get out next week, and start taking a peak at low tide.

Word from the Ipswich River is that the propeller refurbishing houses will have a banner year this year!

How that translates to conditions at the mouth ... I don't know.

Scoped it out with the binocs from pavillion today at low, looks skinny. Pretty good roar from the rollers coming in with whitewater stretching from PI to cranes too. Plenty of time and with the spring rain patterns we have been having, plenty of water to come through and dredge it out. Now all we need is some fresh bass around to keep us busy...

I enjoy watching the early season yahoo's come ripping out of the Ipswich every spring only to discover the newly formed sand bars that have appeared. Their engines make a nice gutteral sound before stalling out
