Bassmater - how's it been lately? we're planning on going out this weekend, but wasn't sure if we should try the Harwich/Yarmouth side, or if it would be better to try the other side of Monomoy. Still looking for my first keeper this year... thanks for the advice!!

go outside the chatham inlet and fish betwen there and the rips. Most are right outside the inlet, 30' of water. Make way for the commercial fishing boats coming in to the market, they are on a plotted course and won't be moving for your recreational boat. Other than that danger, and the low tide problems if you launch at pleasant bay, you are cool. Launching from harwich means lots of blues on the way around the island, but be careful in the rips. launching at nauset inlet means lots of crazy waves at nauset inlet mouth, it can be hairy launching there and getting through the first four breakers.
All in all, the fishing is great once you get out there in the boat, but then there are the dogfish...but proper lure selection can limit their activity (5oz black riverfox bucktail jig with a big screwgrub tail will sink through the dog column fast, bass are below.)

What the hell is a Pirke Jig?

getting to the tip of the beach outside the inlet and a fat cast will get you into 20' of water, but most are further offshore. its elbow to elbow with the fly guys by the lighthouse on the inside, and its all schoolies. We make our money well off the inlet. 40' has been good, with some schools crusing the surface at times, same depth. There are plenty of 35" fish, hitting trolled tubes, jigs, swimmers and even on the umbrella. And on one trip we were lucky to get into a surface feeding school and they were thick. South beach can be walked with bait for some great fish, at night, with bait. If you put your hours in, the bass are there. But, it is a whole lot easier in a boat.
