Big Bites Fishing stated purpose is to construct a causeway, floatplane dock, and ramp and dredge a basin to obtain sufficient water levels to moor boats and aircraft on the water for a commercial fishing operation. Placement of 11,348 cubic yards of shot rock and 3,500 cubic yards of dredged material within a 0.93-acre area below the high tide line of Zimovia Strait to construct a causeway. The causeway would vary in length from 508-feet to 604-feet. The shore end of the causeway would be 26-foot wide at the base and beginning at 400 feet from shore the base would be 94-foot wide. The causeway would be used to access a 5-foot by 70-foot aluminum ramp, a 10-foot by 70-foot concrete float, and a 10-foot by 50-foot concrete float supported by (8) 12-inch diameter steel piles. The work would also include a 0.31-acre dredge basin to allow for boats and float planes to float at all tide levels. The current depth is at the +3 tide level and the proposed dredging of 3,500 cubic yards of sand/gravel/clay material would provide a -6 tide level depth for the basin. The material would be dredged with an excavator. The core at the end of the causeway would be used to deposit the dredged material. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated April 17, 2014. Please contact Marcia L.
