As far as I can tell they are dredging sand to make the boat channel deeper, I recall that the red and and green channel markers were on the Sore Thumb side of the inlet, not the Demo side. If you want the absolute answer you may need to contact the Army Corp of Engineers who are in charge of the project.

at the end of the season the channel markers to exit the Inlet were about 15ft apart and the water was 2ft deep at times

There you go.

Another ruined project.

Any time you want to destroy something, call Army Corp of Engineers.

They will make sure it is ruined for next few generation.

I ended up pulling my boat early because there was just no way I felt comfortable running an inboard through there at low tide with any kind of a swell running.  There was actually some deeper water on the "wrong" side of the 5, which was easier to spot from something with a flybridge or a party boat with an elevated station, but I just didn't feel the urge to jig a few bass that badly.  Once hunting season starts, there are alternatives.

some of the inlet hotspots look ****ed up when I walked the demo loop last week.

That's what I was afraid of

YOU GUYS CRACK ME UP. The inlet changes every day , every tide,  every storm. Whats being done now can change in a blink of an eye with potential storms and tide surge. Been fishing that area for over 25 years. It changes every year, every week and every day.
