Re: Tom's Cove

Toms Cove is always a questionable location, simply because the sand bars constantly shift along with the channels. The inlet is pretty much a piece of cake during slack tide, and if you are fortunate enough to find the cut through the sandbar just inside the inlet, you will find depths to 8 feet behind the tip of the island. Commercial watermen used to mark the cut with stakes driven into the mud, but the last time I was there, which was about three years ago, the stakes were gone and the old cut was filled in to a depth of just 4 feet.

Good Luck,

Gary
