Brewstrer flats informayion needed

I 'm going to be fishing somewhere on the cape this Monday and thought that I might try the Brewster flats. I've never fisher there before and need help about directions, parking, tides, or anything else that you think is important. I will have my kayak with me and I'm looking for company.

I'm open to any other suggestion that you may have to offer.
Thanks Larry

Hi Larry -

Bflats from shore is best on the tail of the ebb and first part of the flood. Other times can be great but as a rule this is the case. From a yak, you need to start mid-tide to minimize the "drag" and wait until same to get back in. The flat at low can be 3/4 mile of sand until you hit water in some places, finding channels near parking is a challenge unless you start early and wait late.

This is exactly why I am a pool toy yakker, so I can carry my ride a mile without any problem if needed. It's lighter than a typical backpack loaded for the day.

If you plan on doing it a lot, you might consider a Dennis oversand permit which gives you access to the mouth of Quivett Crk and also Chase Garden Crk off Chapin. Driving right to the launch point anytime of day or night is worth the $160-ish per year. Mid-tide rules apply.

I would recommend launching at Gray's Landing in Yarmouth on the Dennis line across from Chapin Beach at Bass Hole on the dropping tide and fishing out around Sandy Neck until the flood pushes you back to the landing. It's not Brewster but it's bayside flats with excellent fishing and easy in/out access.

Bflats are two crescents formed skew to shore like arms starting on the shore and reaching out approx .75 miles from shore at the furthest point with break thrus. Concentrate on the outer edge of these arms and any breaks for best results.

This is a dangerous area to push your luck while wading but with a yak as long as you can get in and out you are golden. It's exceptional by boat if you play the times, tides and retrieve right.
