AICW Crab Traps, Problem Stretch south of McClellanville, AICW Statute Miles 430-433

Our thanks to Dave Boxmeyer for this report and warning. Dave is referring to George Hospodar’s October comments on this Problem Stretch, /160670. Unlike the Chesapeake, crab traps are not the usual hazard in the Waterway.

I agree with George, we came through here yesterday at dead low tide and found no less than 5 foot of water under the boat. We draw 3 1/2 feet. The larger problem are the crab traps. They are everywhere, shore to shore and the channel is no exception. Took us a lot of ā€œSā€ turns, but we managed to miss them all. You have to really pay attention to the depth finder and out the window in this stretch.
