Wood End/Long Point

Drift along the beach (do not crowd surfcasters) and cast soft plastics, swimming plugs, metals, jigs or flies very close to shore and retrieve into the deeper water. Often, large bass and bluefish will be within a few feet or shore. A half mile or more south of Wood End is a good area to look for school bluefin tuna – cast large soft plastics, swimming plugs or metals at surface feeding fish.

A very short distance from the beach the water depth drops quickly to 100 feet or more. Troll close to shore along the drop-off with wire line and large swimming plugs or large soft plastics for large stripers. Troll a mile or more off the beach for tuna with daisy chains, single rigged tuna lures, large soft plastics.
