Default Scusset Beach

Hey all, been a while since I have gotten out but was thinking of hitting the Scusset beach end of he canal this weekend.

Just wondering if here are any recommendations and or comments about this area. Was planning to try the beach side as well as the canal side.

Thanks

Mke

i had some moderate luck there earlier in the year. I was going right at dawn and using poppers and some medium divers. If your going at night i would say to bring some eels had good luck with those the times i went.

i had all my luck on the canal side, although i remember one night where some guys on the jetty nailed three keepers right after another i believe the tide was in,going out, i just found that i like the canal side better but both sides def produce. What i like to do is set up close so i can bounce around to each side that's if its not crowded which it can get sometimes. I haven't been down there in a month or so though,after losing 30 bucks in gear in the span of an hour or so i have been staying around Boston lately .Good luck though

during the daylight hours the odds of catching a striper are better in the canal....however i have seen bait trapped out front along the jetti during the fall run..keep your eyes and ears open to what the water is telling you. if your fishing at night you have to consider both out front and in the canal. out front the water is REALLY shallow...if you have done your homework about live eels and shallow water you may hit the jackpot...but often its a crap shoot. try to get there during the day to read the water...there are a few bars and holes out front you can work your bait around at night when the odds are better. if you decide to work the beach and come up empty handed....work the canal like a two dollar hooker. bass big enough to spool a googan like me have been known to lurk the canal shoreline near that jetti....especially in the fall. good luck.

Ive Been fishing around there all year several times a week. There big fish around and the black ron-z has worked well but the bill hurley has worked even better. The fish are scattered so dont expect to do well chasing reports. Also now that ive seen them with my own eyes there were some rather large tuna around wednesday am. I saw one try to eat a bluefish...very suprising. The guys at redtop mentioned getting spooled using a 9 inch majic swimmer....ive been throwing one and havent had that happen yet.

Just got back from 4 days on the Canal. We had good luck with eels til dawn, then swim shads and poppers at first light. Didn't fish during the day and evenings we never had a bump. Most fish of the typical size (25-27 inches). Three keepers -one was 40 inches and 25 pounds

Knock it off guys. No need to air your dirty laundry in public. It's not welcome here.

My friends dad had a tuna on the line at the canal last week (or so he claims). It broke him off.

There are tuna in there. Saw one swim right by me. Another guy said he saw sand sharks there as well. Whatever it is there are some things keeping the big stripers away. Hopefully that will change soon.
