We anchored in the lower reaches — before any houses fronting the water. We still felt unwelcome. Passing local boats clearly didn’t like us there.

It appears they all like to “gun it” just past the houses and we interfered with this.

Given the Georgia tides, I would not want to encounter a wind shift at low tide on anchor.

Just dropped the in the exact location of the anchor on the above chart. It’s dead low tide and we are in 14.4 feet. Added another 9 feet to the depth to figure out how much chain to let out for the high tide. Winds are on our nose at 18K and slack current. Nice views of some pretty houses and docks. Pleanty of room where we are for about 3-4 40 foot boats with 100 ft of rode each.

We are anchored as I write on the Herb River, Came in at high tide so had great depths. Anchored in 15 feet around the first bend to the port (west) just short of a large dock on the south side. Oodles of swing room at this point. The section you recommend in the guide where the land is closest to the water is lined with docks on the west side and was very deep (20+ feet). I am much happier with the extra swing room and a little less protection – still trees to the south but a little further away from the water. Doesn’t matter tonight – little breeze.

I’ve only dropped hook a couple of times in the Herb and found it to be fine. Be sure to extol the nice little restaurant – Bonna Bella – that lies just a few miles up the Herb River. (Mid tide or better for anyone worried about draft. First come, first served dock available at the restaurant. Not a large menu, but some very tasty items and a full bar. Great outdoor and indoor dining with great views of the marsh and creeks.
