Not sure of the exact dredge locations.  But the Shrewsbury River actually begins north of Shrewsbury #2 in lower Sandy Hook bay not south of the NS Buoy.   Around the #5 can used to always shoal up in the narrower part of the river.  And there is a huge sand bar NE of the #11 can too well north of the Highland Bridge.

I could not get link open to read details though .

That spot has always been shallows since I crabbed with dad in the 1960's out of Chris' Landing in Sea Bright.   It's about a foot of water in there at low tide.   That would be great to give a small boat alternative to the main channel.

Geez it's so shallow the picture circled shows sand on one spot if you look close enough.  That sedge island in the middle is called Gunning Island.

This will probably mess up fall crabbing especially the Oceanport Creek Channel dredging. See link for exact locations of dredging

Gary,

It seems they are staying off the main channel and hitting Gooseneck bridge channel to Parkers Creek.  If they are simply dredging.  They are removing, not dumping.  Dumping removed sand is much worse because it affects a wider area. 

That far east end dredge, no one crabs there anyway.  If they focus on the crayon buoy channel west to Gooseneck Bridge ( sometimes good spots) its kind of limited in effect.

That area circled is very shallow during low tide as others mentioned. Actually both rivers have quite a few areas that het a little sketchy at low tide. Knowledge of the rivers is a big plus or you can do some damage to your prop
