First off, head up the South River and anchor in the cove just downstream of Liberty Marina. Dinghy up the river to Mike's Crabhouse.I believe there are a couple Mill Creeks on the Bay, but I'm looking for some local knowledge about the one off Whitehall Bay.
I'd like to sail to Cantler's on Saturday for some crabs. The charts show the Mill Creek inlet has a depth of 7 ft, but Active Captain reports some shoaling. I draw 6'2" so it might be a long dinghy ride from Whitehall Bay - which isn't a great anchorage, especially with the forecast SE winds.
If you have a favorite crab shack that isn't too far from the West River, I'm open to alternatives.
If you insist on Cantlers (not worth it in my mind, but your choice), you should be able to carry 6'2" through there in a SE wind. If you choose not to, Whitehall Bay is a fine anchorage, even with winds from the SW, in all but the lightest boats. The dinghy run isn't bad at all.
I expect we'll be in Mill Creek (but not at Cantlers) this weekend.
