It will either float out deeper and eventually break up, or it will wash up at Ontario Beach (Charlotte) where George, the Mechanical Equipment Operator will break it up and haul it away.  They have been floating down to the beach for years, although I suspect the large size of this one is related to undercutting of the cattail mat by the high water level and the wave action up Salmon Creek, which is not impacted by the nearly submerged headlands breakwater installed by the USACE.   Without that breakwater reducing some of the wave force, we may have seen a much greater loss of mats off the bay face of the marsh, which was losing about an acre a year on average.  It is going to be interesting to see what kind of damage the breakwater has sustained in all this " aqueous plentitude."

    • I-Bay 9/21

      Headed out about 6:00 AM. Started in about 49 feet just East if the river. Temp was 63 degrees from top to bottom. Didn’t see anything worth staying for so started trolling north. Had 2 fish on in about 140 but dropped both of them. Went out to almost 200 feet and found a little colder water but didn’t mark much bait or fish. Finally managed an Atlantic in 160 feet on 10 color leadcore. 2 other knock offs and that was it. One of the slowest days of the year. Hindsight says we should have kept go
