It's hard to say which will be better in April. I prefer to set up camp at the south end. From north of the lighthouse to the south point there can be good structure and you also have the option of going around to the jetty, with good holes to be found between the point and jetty as well. If you are tent camping take a look at the wind forecast and try to use the dunes for protection if necessary. Don't set up out in the open.Never been on the island , Me and some friends are carrying our little boys on a father son fishing/camping trip the weekend of April 20-23 , Should we go south or north after being dropped by Davis Ferry to fish/camp , once we set up camp we don't plan to move . It seems it will be high tide that afternoon when we arrive , I wish it was low tide so it would be easier to set up on a hole or slough, any suggestions on going north or south and suggestions for bait tis time of the year would be greatly appreciated to show these kids a good time . Thanks
You'll want to at least come over with fresh shrimp. If you can find or net fresh jumping mullet that would be a bonus. Try http://drumwagon.com/fishrep/. That forum will have more folks familiar with the island.
