Middle section of the beach, shallow and not interesting with exception
of the sand bar (about 50 yards East of the jetty)
there is a hole East of that sand bar.
The jetty holds nice fish at a night tides. Low tide shown on the picture.
Waders are necessary to fish high tides from the jetty.
Best spot is the deep hole West of the tip of the jetty (left on picture).
Best tide: High and outgoing, best time: at night.
West side beach is a good fishing area. View from the jetty.
About 500 yards West from the jetty is the "big rock" - small dark spot on the picture.
"Big Rock" has some small rocks on both sides closer to the shore,
and more rocks to the west. The picture was taken at low tide and full moon.
"Big Rock" area is a very good spot to fish for striped bass.
The mouth of the Nissequoque River (1 mile East from field #3) shown at the high tide.
The mouth of the river is a premium fishing area with strong current and deep water.
Best tide: outgoing and low, best time: from 11p.m. to 3 a.m.
