    I worked for DNREC for 3 years hydrographic surveying monitoring beach erosion. As far as I can Figure the clairity of the water is directly related to rain fall. Silt carried in the waters of local tidal rivers. Clearest water I ever saw was during the 2000 summer/fall drought, I could see sandy bottom when I was 500' off shore in 25+ feet of water. Up in the surfzone it was crystal clear.

    a big factor for clarity is if there is a lot of nearshore currents. When there is wind whipping up the current it moves a lot of sand around.

    you'll notice our clearest waters in the surf zone are when we have ground swells with light local winds. This is because the wind swells churn things up and cause the dark waters.

    I've never been spear fishing before... anyone have any tips or thoughts on it? I'm pretty interested in giving it a try this flat spell.

    Anybody spearing around DE/Ocean City? I heard the inner & outer wall off CHSP can produce, but also heard the man in the gray suit likes to make appearances.

    went out in IR and seen a few fluke caught, just got back from VA and mopped them up and no keepers, but still good to catch fish again.
