Gallagher Beach

This is best done as a shore entry dive. There is a swimmers section marked and Jet skis are abundant on the weekends. Be careful at this location - the whole place gets overgrown by tall thick weeds in late July - September.

Perch, Sunny's, Bass, & Goby's are all found here. The wildlife you need to be concerned with are the jet skiers & boaters.
