It's smokin' out there. I'd launch out of either side of Sesuit and include the Quivett, Paines and sprawling Brewster flats into the day.

Billingsgate is pretty simple, it starts about 2mi due north of Sesuit and ends to the east in Wellfleet near Billingsgate Island. I like the area north of Brewster best for open water and the humps to the east for sight fishing.

You'll see the Rock Harbor charter fleet out there since they won't be getting back into the harbor mid day.

Just look for birds over bait, set up a drift well upwind and cast a high density line out to the sides and a slow twitch under the bait as the line comes around as you drift through the bait and hang on.

North wind Sat, swinging calm (sw 10) Sunday.

Inshore flats best in the afternoon this weekend.

Sand eel patterns rule this time of year on the bayside.

Good luck.

thanks

Thanks juro, you the man, with the cost of gas to tow down there and back, plus what you burn on the water it is nice to know the info heading down there.

Thanks again!

P.S Those sandeels are pretty gown-up

About 7" long and 1/2 inch in diameter.

When the rafts come up to the surface it looks just like a school of Sluggos
