I have the opportunity to rent a great place and low cost (friends)

Does anyone know if the beaches in this area are wadeable, or at least fishable?

There are some great places to fish around there, including good opps for shore-shots (as opposed to sure-shots) at funny fish during August/Sept. Also a great spot to kayak early morning before the inevitable SW wind comes through in the afternoon. There is a nice rock garden just north of the picture. I used to boat fish the area frequently....

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Actually, my choices are:

June: 6/3-6/10, 6/17-6/24
July: 7/1-7/8, 7/15-7/22
August: 8/26-9/2

Which would you choose purely based on fishing (hey, what else http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif)

The early dates are sure to find bass in all the inlets and coves along this shore. The August dates put you right into the hardtail season with Bonito and False Albacore available in Buzz Bay (although not quite as catchable from shore). As suggested good 'yak territory and you are within close driving distance to a multitude of consistant shore spots, the Canal, Nobska, S.Cape, Waquoit, Scortons etc...

My friend had a place in W. Falmouth summers of '97 and '98 and I fished there a lot, but it was all by small boat. So, my .02--

Early June in the Bay is usually great for both bass and blues (big fish too), with a lot of daytime activity, herring are around, and it's not that crowded. June is my favorite fishing month, despite lack of hardtailed fish.

I remeber doing very well there in early July (i.e. July 4th weekend)early in the day and into the afternoon; there are lots of smaller blues then and lots of sandeels/silversides, but daytime fishing really slows down by late July.

Depending on the year, end of August can have peak bone/albie/spanish macks, but the bass fishing can be very frustrating.

So, for bass/blues I'd say June, for albies and such, August.

This year was apparently very different for some reason and I heard Buzzards Bay was not as good parts of June and July (i.e. my friends who normally fish/live there wouldn't go and began trailering to the Vineyard or Monomoy). I remember reading it was slow too, but not sure why--but that is all second hand, as I didn't fish there 'til August.

If you can get access to a boat, June is crazy--the canal is gigging, the Elizabeths are gigging, the Vineyard and Middleground, squid runs, Woods Hole, all within 15 minutes....and best of all, the moron factor is still negigible pre-July. Is it summer yet?

i'm so outta here

I have no recollection of any secret fishing spots, Senator.
