Re: Cape beaches: Race Point vs Herring Cove
You have to watch them both, Alex. You don't say if you are equipped with a buggy but that is what is needed to fish Race Point. Herring Cove, on the other hand, is best fished with a parking permit and family auto. What we used to do was check the Race, drive as close to Hatches as we could, park, cross and then work south along New Beach, also called Herring Cove, until we ran into a bunch. We knew how long we had before we would have issues getting back across Hatches Harbor. We had more experience with Race Point b ecause we could pull and fish there. Nobody, not even Mister Smarty, can say which is going to be best at any given time. Nowadays, there are a lot of buggies at the Race and for the sake of peace and space you can opt the more spread southard.
