My family and i are spending the week in Pine Point. Has anyone fished the area recently? what have they been hitting? any easy access to the Scarborough river from the Rte 9 area? can you fish from the town landing? any action on the beach? Any pointers are welcome.

Shoot me a p.m. and I'll share what I can. That area is my home water.

I've had luck off the beach with sandworms, on a fishfinder rig. Scout out areas of interest at low tide, and fish these on the incoming/outgoing tides. You will find them with a little patience. If its during the day good luck, it gets a little busy.

Skunked, I put a sliding swivel on a line, and a snap swivel tied to the end. On the sliding swivel I put usually a 2 ounce pyramid sinker. On the snap swivel I put on a snelled hook (5/0 usually). This allows you to pay out line, or have a bass pick it up without feeling resistant. The sandworm I hook through the mouth, I try to let the pinchers come out and thread up through the body. This will keep the worm on the hook. If I'm floating in a current, usually use a sliding egg sinker on the line and a swivel with a snelled hook, this gives you some casting weight and brings you a little deeper. Good luck!
