Best spot on the canal

Ok so while it may not be the “best spot” it’s a great place for beginners and vets alike. It’s a chill place with deep water access (pier) and the best part is when the stripers run u don’t really need anything. Best bait is a cut (or live if u can catch) mackerel drifter with the current from the current. Simple but effective. Also good are savage sandeel, al gags whip it fish, sebile stick shade, and the like. Parking right up and great spots from that area up and down. Scusset beach is also fire. Any questions send me a dm and I’ll try my best to help y’all out

Awesome location has a beautiful view and great fishing. For those confused on how to access there is a dirt road that leads down to the lake off of Old Queen Anne Road. If you want to catch easy Largemouths the best way to do so is to go off to the left of the main beach just a little and wade in to about your knees. Use a 5” Senko and the wacky worm technique (very easy to find online if you don’t know how to do so) and it’s so easy a four year old could do it. I haven’t gone a single first cast without catching anything doing this. Hope the info helps and happy fishing!
