Hi,

I am staying at the Breakers in Dennisport late June for a few days. Since it is located on the beach I was wondering if it or surrounding area is a good surf fishing spot.
Since I only have a day or two I want to make the most of it.
Also, should I plan on using eels/plugs, etc. for that time of year..?

Any help would be great..!!
Thanks

I don't know Dennisport but you might work east and fish HArding Beach with sand eels on a high low rig. Work more east to Chatham light and at the bottom of the lighthouse there is a great beach.

The Chatham Light Beach has changed drastically over the winter. There used to be one channel running out. The channel is now split with a large sand dune in the middle. I was down there two weeks ago and birds were working the far channel. There is some pretty sweet looking bowls and bars out on the outer beach. My buddy and I fished it hard one night and the only thing I caught was a cormarant. Fun. Beware of the seals and the sharks feeding on the seals down there at that time of the year. Jaws.

no joke, there are sharks. We thought it was a white last july, turned out to be a big tiger. Seals everywhere on monomoy, and be careful of those rips at the tip boy! A drive to chatham inlet is a fair bet, but it is crowded and you are better off fishing the barrier beach than the inlet by the lighthouse. Or if you have a boat handy, head out past the cans and the fishing can be astonishing, just watch out you don't get fogged out, it can be a tough trip back in blind at the wrong tides

What the hell is a Pirke Jig?

Sharks, Seals, fog, rips.....Jersey seems much safer..!! Ha

I have fished Nauset once and saw two huge bass caught about 7 years ago, but that is my only Cape fishing experience.I didn't catch anything, but it was worth a night on the beach just to see these two huge bass.

I will also ask some of the B&T's once up there.

Thanks guys for the heads up and good fishing to all..!!

You might give the jetty at the Herring River a shot- it extends out further from the West side, and is about a mile and a half or less (to the east) from Dennisport. Fine place to spend an evening. There are some parking issues so you might try asking permission to use a lot, or consider the walk with a few beverages. Good luck.

Hey Surf99wave. Listen to what these guys are telling you. The further east you go the better, especially from late June and beyond. I would also like to add that I hope more sharks come and eat the seals. There are too many of those ****ing things. Sure they are cute, but after fishing the lower cape for a while, they are "rats of the ocean." If there is ever a season on them......oh boy, I'm gonna

WOW! Tiger sharks this early in the season? That would be one hell of a sleigh ride

Thanks again guys for all the great input and advice...!!

I am also bringing a copy of "Striper Hot Spots" to help me fish other parts of the Cape if I have time.

Seals and sharks are fine as long as I am on dry land..!!
