Any suggestion from people in the know, on what areas to hit, will be moble with my canoe and will be fishing all day? Low tide around 12:00 noon.

Craig, You could give Follins Pond a try......upper reaches of Bass River.....ride the tide in and out. Nice put in area on Follins Pond Rd. off I believe, "Old Bass River Rd". Was there last week for a bit, at the wrong tide of course. Supposed to be better at high.

Park on the causeway at the Outermost Harbor end. Short portage down to the narrow inlet then out past outermost harbor and you're in the tub. Probably one of the shortest and most productive paddles you could make this time of year.

If you're feeling a bit more energetic and fancy an early start, its about 40mins paddle to the Rip Ryder drop off point and you can enjoy relative solitude before the crowds arrive.

The back ponds off Bridge Street and out into Stage could be worth a look too.

So much choice :D

How about the south tip of Monomoy?:hehe: Ahh the good old days

For those who may have missed the tounge in check quality - I do not advocate going to the south tip in a canoe though some may claim to have seen me do it.;)

I have a 4 horse Motor that pushes the 18' canoe around pretty good, so I will be able to get around.

Hawkeye, ah yes the good old days! ;)

Any word on J bouy, how far down is it?

Does any body have any word on anything happening in the crib or the north end of south monomy?
