It should be on most charts in newer GPS units. Roughly 1/4 mile north of bay bridge on east side. Shows up best from 12 to about 35 feet. Most times there are white markers on north and south sides of it.

Calm day with strong current - easy to spot the rip forming over it.


If no one else replies - I'll pull numbers from my GPS tomorrow for you.

That could turn into an expensive pass. The pipe has about 6' of relief off the bottom and is covered in large stone.

CMP - I've dove the sewer pipe a few times.

Picture the Sandy Point jetty - but underwater. As Chilli stated - it comes off bottom 5-10 feet and is very jagged in the way the rocks are set.

There is a lot of heavy fishing line criss crossing it - plus a few crab pot lines snagged on it.

Any trolled lure that drags across it is likely to snag. The depth changes fast - one side of boat might be 15-other side almost 20.

It's not used any more. It used to be where treated water was discharged from the Kent Island wastewater treatment plant. Now it is a not-so-secret piece of structure. Last summer for several weeks 50 boats would be on it at a time.

Thanks very helpful, I won't be trolling across it anytime soon. The jetty visual helps, I am curious to see how it looks on my new sidescan.
