C-Hawk, I have had my Skiff down there a few times but you just have to pick your days. I will fish in 10-15 winds but anything over that I'm staying home.

Your boat is perfect to fish the pilings but as others have staed- you'll need 5-10 knot winds.

Be very careful and if the winds pick up- pack it in and run to the ramp.The shoals near the CBBT can stack up so no sh*t waves.I've seen 4-5 footers there.

IMHO- the CBOFS wind prediction is best - it gives hourly predictions.Some days you can get 4-5 hours in before it blows too hard.

keep an eye on the tide and wind directions. When the two move together the seas are manageable when they buck each other look out for a very short steep chop. Seas can change quickly there. Good thing is that there are good places to fish around the ramp and the bridge isnt a far run from Kiptopeake

its a shame that i am wanting to start fishing down that way. i had a 25 c-hawk pilothouse and a 22 mako center console that i got rid of the last few years. i usually fish the delaware bay and ocean out of indian river but when my son was born i really cut back on fishing. now i am starting to have more time to fish and i am starting to regret selling those boats. i commercial crab out of the skiff and that is my only boat for now

Launching from Kiptopeake will give you more options if the weather is questionable. #18 is right out front and the High Span and Nautilus Shoal is just a little south.
