If you can manage it, I would suggest going to the Canal on Saturday and Sunday morning (4:30am-7am) to catch the last of a good set of tides. Other than that, I don't really know, just watch out for seals on the outer beaches.

Hi,

Suggest you stop in at Black Beards bait shop (N. Eastham), same strip mall as Ben & Jerrys & Dunkin Donuts, as your best bet. You can get most current reports/conditions (mung can be a problem on ocean side) plus Paul should be able to help with both most appropriate bait & tackle. Just got back from bayside... Blues were hot & Stripers were slow and mostly shorts.

Good luck...

Don't forget your bug suit.
Repellants don't work on greenheads or salt water skeeters.
They are brutal this year.

I'm in eastham this week. Been fishing the backside of Coastgaurd. Not much action this year. Pretty much all shorties. The greenheads are out of control for sure. They tore my XXX up.

Good luck!

If you're around next year, walk past the lighthouse at Hardings beach in Chatham to the channel. False albies have been running in and out of Stage Harbor. Fish the south facing beaches as well (Hardings off the parking lot, there is a nice jetty in Harwich that extends probably a little over a hundred feet into Nantucket sound) for good sized blues and even small sea bass.
