Bone Hill - Long Pasture
Bone Hill is one of my favorite fishing spots on the Cape. I went down to check it out at low tide this morning because I hadn't been down there since last fall and I wanted to see where the new holes were.
This little Cape Cod House sits next to a main house, so I'm not sure if it's acutally lived in... but it wouldn't surprise me.
Bone Hill is also the location of a Wildlife Sanctuary and as you can see, a small goat farm!
The fishing holes constantly change because of the storms that blow in from the northeast, strong winds and water currents. It's important to check out the "landscape" at low tide so you can find the spots that the fish like when the tide is high.
I found this strange circular mark as I was walking across one of the sand bars.
I followed it for about 12 feet and found these guys!
Two horseshoe crabs, waiting for the tide to come in!
I also discovered some tiny treasures scattered about....
These two spots look pretty good!
The beach in this section turns very rocky.
This boulder is mostly underwater at high tide.
Time to head back.... sure hate to leave!
