Hello,

Your best bet is to go on last of incoming or start of outgoing. But there are times when it is good no matter what the tide, the water is allways moving. Your best bet is 1/2 or 3/4 bucktails this time of year. In the spring you can use swimmers. Good luck.

hey stripe,
just wanted to say that i went down to the lilco plant this am and had a really good morning,,,,no fish, but was able to scope the place out and get the 411. i parked in crabmeadow and then walked the beach...be warned, theres a fence enclosing both sides of the public beach. was a little unsure whether or not to continue with the westward walk towards the plant....however, spoke to a few locals who stated that was, in fact, the route most took. ran into two super friendly casters on the beach who were able to share a little knowledge on the local as well. i worked a 3/4 bucktail for about an hour or so...no bangs,,,but nevertheless,,a good day! g/l...btw,,,bucktails come in all shapes and sizes....:)

The parking lot at Crab Meadow is open daylight hours. Don't park in the restaurant's lot. The walk down to the outflow isn't a bad one, although at high tide you have to wade around some pilings.

I haven't been there this year, but most years, there's a bar lining the outflow, about parallel with the fence. Sometimes, it hangs a turn at an outer bar that is wadeable at low tide. Be careful not to take one step too many when wading at the outflow--it drops off and the current will sweep you out into the Sound. While the outflow water might be in the 60s, the Sound is in the low 40s and it's certain hypothermia if you get swept out. Best go in daylight, preferably with someone who's been there before. If you have to go alone, take your cue on where to wade and how close to the edge you can go from the other folks fishing there. If you have the place to yourself, either the fishing's been slow or the usual suspects feel it's the wrong tide ;) Don't let that stop you from making some casts, as fish don't read the tide charts, but be conservative in how close you get to the edge.

Small bucktails, or small shad bodies on a 3/4 oz jigheads are good lures. Plugs have their moments, but usually the fish are deep in the outflow.

Dunno if you meant me Matty,
but you can't hit a home run unless ya swing.
Sometimes you get on base, more often you miss.
Only time will tell.
I never heard of someone with an average better than 500!

Remember who you're talkin' at,
I ALWAYS show my brown side!

I can see how accepting or declining my offer of company could be intimidating in a public forum. If you prefer, you may reply privately to THIS screen name, AT "noreast.net". The offer was and is made in good faith.
