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.

I don't know any of the new kids and they apparently don't want to know me.

I think you would be welcome but the fishing would bore you top death or ather places. It ain't, as you know so well, how it used to be. Course if they let us hunt seals in winter that might be exciting, only from shore of course.

I have written extensively about the great fishing at the Cape but people seem always to forget that we expereinced some awful years there. I also watch the landings of big bass and the last few years they are getting little. But that will change as it always does. As for the new kids, I will never call them again. The second time I am insulted it will be my fault. I don't have to kiss anybody's butt to sell a flippin book and if they don't know how much I have done for all of them in writings then they don't deserve anybody pumping them up. For Frank the Cape is dead.
