Watch the waves roll in.

If they start to crest off the beach that means there's a bar out there.
If the wave falls back after the crest it means there's deeper water between the bar and the beach.
If you see a line of waves cresting off shore and there's a break in the crest line that means there's a dip or cut in the bar. Cast there!

I doubt that a chart will do much for you. You need to put in your time & learn the spots. Go down there just before sunrise & sunset if you can. Bass are generally most active at these times. I've always preferred the last 2 hours of the ebb on the north shore beaches I fish. If you can get that tide coinciding with sunup or sundown you have IMO the best shot at fish. Wind also plays a major factor. West being the best & east the least.

OK I looked this up for you via USACE:

http://corpsmapu.usa...cm2.map?map=NAD

go to the upper left pane and select "North American Coast Comp Study (NACCS)"

A drop-down menu will show, check the box for "Shoreline type" this turns on the layer with the color coding of shoreline type, annotations for reefs, rocks, etc.


This is the best I can come up with- the NOAA charts will give you depths and obstructions, so between the two you should be able to piece something together.NOAA gets most (all?) of their data from USACE anyway, so things should coincide- although I don't know of any way to merge the data.

Probably the most updated info would be LiDAR based. It's pretty good on beaches too, I tend not to trust it where there's a lot of phrag. There was a lot flown after Sandy, but it was collected "quickly" more than it was "accurately."

The thing is finding it in a format that's easily usable if you're not a GIS specialist.

You're not gonna learn how or where to catch fish from a navigation chart, satellite photo or database.

You learn by asking experienced anglers where their secret spots are. :gaffaw2

Seriously, just go out and have fun.

I have been using Google earth which is a great tool.
It really helps when checking out beach structure.

Nazz PM me your email address and Ill be happy to send you a high res copy of Chart 12365 that is current with NM and local Notice to Mariners as of 15 days ago...

Center Island is my spot. I'm there almost every weekend, either spearfishing off the barge/sub at Walls Wharf, as well as taking bugs or hitting the surf.
Sspearing or taking fish by rod at camusett while also cruising the double super secret bug spots, or going out for the day...

ETA: If your a fellow shooter I'll even leave a couple of my 'spots' marked in wax pencil if your in need.
