Falmouth Town Harbor Bulkhead

This spot is an excellent choice for some bait fishing with youngsters. Parking is almost never a problem and directly adjacent to the dock. At the mouth of busy Falmouth Inner Harbor there is also plenty of activity here for kids to enjoy. The primary target here is scup (porgies), which are abundant just off the bulkhead and also farther out along the jetty. Don’t be surprised to hook the occasional schoolie striper or snapper bluefish either. Well after dark when the boat traffic diminishes this spot can yield some bigger bass and blues; lures are best with smaller Hogys extremely productive. Also, in the spring and summer there are often squid around the dock, attracted by the baitfish that are in turn attracted by the lights illuminating the dock. Small squid jigs will catch them.
