  7. Details: Fishing Hot Spot® Old Flat Top

    Free Fishing Hot Spot®
    Known as β€œOld Flat Top,” the rugged base of an abandoned lighthouse remains standing at the south end of Cross Ledge. Several lumps ...more to the east side give up fish. Nice flounder are caught here using simple fishfinder-rigs. On the deeper edges of the channels, 3 ounces of weight or more may be necessary to keep the bait near the bottom. Top and bottom-rigs with minnows and shedder crabs will produce weakfish and flounder. Use dark teasers on overcast days and light colors on bright days. Tautog and black sea bass also frequent the ruins.

    There are 28 more marked Fishing Hot Spots® on this waterway. Go Premium and unlock them all!

    Ospreys are staring to pair up. Purple henbit in the fields. Two good signs.

    We have fresh bunker, live green crabs, live minnows, and live eels.

    We are starting to expand our hours.

    Spring surf fishing tournament is scheduled for May 10. Info available on the website and in the store.
