Green heads and black flies, and swarms of gnats at sunrise and sunset, bayside NJ just would not be the same without them. Their larve feed the fish, and the flies feed the birds, but we are food for the flies.
I use a sunscreen with citronella in it when near the shore line, it does not stop them swarming but I don't get bitten.
The bar at the entrance to the Cohansey was at about 17ft depth when I entered just after low tide, and depth in the river was 20, 30 and 40ft +++. The bay near the entrance has shoal areas in all directions but not less than 9ft.
I will check the tides and plan a September trip, should also be less bugs. A 2 days sail for me from Essington.
Read the post from Gary as I was typing, I kept close to the green day marker pylon and followed the crabbers.
