For experienced anglers, maybe not the best place to go. Slocum creek can produce some nice reds, flounders, and the occasional striped. What Slocum creek is known for is the family time. I take my girls down there to involve them in a sport I love and in recent time they have come to love. They really enjoy it because they constantly and consistently catch fish, not keepers but it keeps them busy. When I do my crabbing I do it there as well. Check it out and enjoy the family time.

This place is massive! Huge beach with amazing views. Not one other person fishing on the beach! Tides are incredibly strong so heavy weights are a must for surf fishing. Pitch black at night with awesome view of the starts. Emerald is is south facing Moon sets over the ocean. There is little to no public parking for the Point. You pretty much have to be renting nearby and walk. It’s another 5 minute walk across mostly hard packed sand once you get to the entrance. I believe 4wd allowed after labor day and ends at Memorial Day. Fishing is unbelievable!! 19 sharks, 2 croakers, 3 Kingfish, one lizard fish, and 3 bluefish in just 4 days! I will be back!
