West Falmouth Harbor Entrance & Little Island

West Falmouth Harbor

West Falmouth Harbor entrance & Little Island

At first light cast soft plastics, poppers, swimming plugs, flies along the jetty at the end of the harbor and into the rocks on Little Island and on the opposite side of the channel along Chapaquoit Island for stripers. Diving birds anywhere off the end of the harbor usually indicates feeding bluefish or schoolie stripers. Bonito and false albacore are caught here in late summer and fall.

To troll, use unweighted tube and worm rigs on mono or braid in water depths of 6 – 15 feet. Soft plastics, swimming plugs, rigged eels also effective.

Anchor or drift outside the marked channel in depths of 12 – 25 feet for prolific scup and occasional fluke. Use squid strips. Sea bass may be present in deeper water off Little Island.
