The best way to find out is get in your boat and ride up there near low tide , and see for your self. That way you will know for sure and not depend on someone else.

Searat,

When using this inlet you never "depend" on anyone else. You read the inlet and either go, or don't go. Just wanting a little a little feedback if the bar has moved, gotten worse or stayed the same

Don't think he was asking for a track, just if its changed drastically since the storm. With this inlet you look it over good every time you go in and out. If you've never been there you wouldn't understand.

I'm pretty positive Sea rat has been through Drum a time or two (or hundreds), and that's actually some pretty solid advise he gave.

If you want to follow us out of Drum then your boat better run 60!

Sea rat- we'll see you guys this weekend.

I have run this inlet almost on a weekly basis. And yes it has changed over the summer. The outer bar is filled in a lot. Did not mean to come off as a a$$ hole. But people are always wanting to know if drum is changed or how to get across the shoals,and this is the way I have found out on my on. I personally like to go look at inlets and shoals on low tides that way you can see the shallow water better and make your on judgement call. Good luck

Been running that inlet for years and I figured it out the way you did too. Long as it is still close to what I was used to seeing this Summer. It's been weirding me out running down the beach to get out, but it's nice coming back in.

60? Sounds like you are a little underpowered.
