Hog Key

Looking for some local knowledge.  How much water is in the two little cuts on the backside of Hog Key at low tide?

    I assume plenty as alot of people camp there and park boats on the inside.

    Enough for a 2 foot draft at low tide?

    I have never been in there, just see alot of people camping there and i know they keep boats on the inside. You have to remember winter we have negative tides so you have to factor that in. We had a negative tide this past weekend and people were camping but they put the boats on the outside.

    Low tide it’s 1’ in there. Negative tide and a wind could be real iffy. Outside is better bet

    I have camped there a couple times with the kids. As said earlier I’m guessing it’s closer to 1 foot in there-at best. The other side is even shallower out to about 100’. I had to drag my Gheenoe out of there at low tide one morning.
    Best place that I know of for something with that much draft would be the very north end of Whitehorse key. There is a deep spot right at the tip of the sand spit. 
    But it’s a popular might be taken unless you get there early.
