To get to Broadbay Passage to fish is quite an obstacle and should be reserved for younger guys or for at least people in pretty good shape. Park on the Long Bay Point side of the bridge,preferably across the road from it next to the little boat repair area there (there's a wooden fence and a dumpster in the parking area). Take as little gear as necessary and walk up the bridge (it's steep) and bear right for the road going to Broad Bay. Stay on the side of the road until you see the railing at the water's edge (that's the broad bay passage area). You can fish anywhere along that railing but must go up and down a fairly steep hill to get to and from the fishing area. It is an excellent spot to fish but hard to get to and from.
I found the area this morning. Looks like a great spot. There was a lady out there with a cast net pulling in small striper. As I watched her she would dump them into the weeds then put them into a bag. The Stripers were bout 10 inches long. My wife had no Idea what the lady was doing at the time. Latter my wife said the lady with the cast net gave her some really negative vibes. I wanted to choke the stuff out of this lady. I would have paid to watch the law give this woman a fine.
tgif look on your fishing license across from your signature and down a little bit you should find a number 1-800-541-4646 give them a call and the bad vibes may spike but they will go away soon enough.
i was under the impression the only spot to fish was on the adam keeling side parking by the cemetary. there are signs on the other side i thought that said no fishing. let me know if i am wrong.
Catchinabuzz, you may be right but the sign is somewhat confusing because it says no fishing no crabing no mouring which gave me the impression it was pertaining to boat traffic....If someone has more info, please respond...
