    I agree with the previous reviews. I didn’t go quite to the spot indicated on Waterway Guide. But it was still a good anchorage. It does shoal fast. So be careful. We had no mosquitoes due to the cooler weather

    I had the misfortune of anchoring here minutes before a terrific storm which caused flooding and near-freezing temperatures. It is exposed to all but West winds, and there is a mild current toward the South. Depths going in were about 6-8 feet with lots of shoaling, so you have to feel your way through. Once you get beyond the red channel marker, there is a spot about 200 feet in diameter with variable, but adequate depths. Bottom is soft mud, but with a lot of rode it held me in massive winds and current. It is far enough from the ICW that wakes are negligible. I also had zero cell phone reception here. As this is a swamp, mosquitoes are naturally a concern.

    This anchorage will obviously be somewhat exposed in southeasterly winds. But it's a nice, wide-open spot with great holding and a beautiful view. You will get some small wakes from small fishing boats going by in the channel, but we had no problems at all. We recommend it.
