The conditions this morning were unlike anything I've seen - the bottom could be seen with amazing clarity at and beyond 100 yards from shore, all along the Cape shore. Combination of slack low tide, no breeze, cooling water, and perhaps the view you get from a SUP. Could see the sea nettles hugging the bottom waiting for things to warm up.
