WATCH: Footpath inundated from king tide this morning

WATER is starting to flow over the footpath at East Shores because of today's king tide.

The high tide peaked at 4.8m at 9.51am today.

It's made life much easier for boaties launching around the region but is sure to make life a bit difficult for anglers as the barramundi season reopens at noon today.

With such a large tide people using the waterways and the beaches are being urged to take care because the large amount of water movement can create dangerous conditions.

At Barney Point the water is within half a metre of the retaining wall along the foreshore.
