Boating Advisory Issued Ahead of Cold Front
With hunting season in full swing, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reminds hunters to use
caution when venturing out in a boat. This weekend we are expecting a cold front that will
bring high winds out of the north along the coast. This will cause tides to be lower than
normal.
 
Lt Ross Mire of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office Marine Section says, “Historically, cold
fronts and strong north winds have kept us pretty busy.”
 
Hunters can fall victim to these low tides, causing them to be stranded on sand bars and mud
flats. This weekend, low tide should be in the middle of the day, so hunters should plan for
falling tides when going out to their hunting location in the early morning. Bring a cell phone
and charger as well as provisions in case you become stranded for an extended amount of
time. If you have an emergency and need assistance, contact 911.
