Sankaty Light/East Side

Watch for surface action – this is a prime area for very large bluefish. Use poppers, metals, shallow swimming plugs for blues. Bass may be present; low light conditions best, use large soft plastics, swimming plugs, surface plugs. Bait not advised due to presence of many dogfish and seals.

Troll against the current along the beach in 15 – 20 feet of water with swimming plugs, tubes or jigs. Fish may be present anywhere from Sankaty Light to Great Point.

Beware large swells but drifting and bouncing jigs or baited hooks along the bottom may yield fluke and sea bass.
