Question July 4th best bet in Monomoy/South Beach area

Will be taking the boat ride to Monomoy or South Beach on July 4th. Any suggestions on where to find fish that doesn't look like the Beaverkill Junction pool on opening day? Willing to walk as far as needed. Familiar with South Beach, but never been to North Monomoy, so would appreciate any guidance on spots to try (e.g., which way to go from where the boats drop you off). Thanks.

J.

It's hard to find solace on July 4th anywhere on the ocean side of the canal. My suggestion would be to go somewhere else entirely if you seek solitude and good fishing. Do you have a high suspension vehicle?

I'm not seeking solitude, just enough elbow room so I can cast without worrying about hooking someone. Before moving to Boston, I live in NYC and did most of my fishing in the Catskills, so I'm used to shoulder to shoulder fishing.

Then I guess you don't need this secret spot info afterall

I would go to S/B on a day like July 4th because:

a) crowded conditions == less impact (matters less)
b) two sides to fish, not to mention the inlet
c) dramatically more room per person
d) just as many fish, often more
e) easier to figure out and succeed

Well, soon the fish will separate the men from the boys out there as they enter their most finicky phase.

Yes.. everyone and his brother will be taking the boat to Monomoy... so... go to South Beach... you got the flats on one side and a "great" fishy ocean on the other...plenty of room.

I'll be there! You'll recognize me, I'll be the one wiggling and jumping around like a Labrador Retriever when somebody says "ducks".

I may be there too - the job change has taken on a new dimension which means I will in all probability be around for the rest of the summer - yippeeeeee

Busy week-end sounds like a good time for a death march
