Default Navigating Nauset Inlet

Hey guys, don't post here often...and I know the answers are going to be harsh. I traditionally fish out of Pamet - PHB, Bank and CCBay for Tuna! I had lots of success last year. I'm looking to start fishin the backside Eastham/Orleans/Chatham line where fish have been lately to open up my options. I fish a 1973 22 Mako w/ 225 Rude, I have not navigated Nauset inlet before and looking for some advice, I did search and didnt find much.

What do I need to know? Not the new Chatham cut, but the Eastham/Orleans inlet...wind/tide/moon/stars/whatever...I know what you may say...if you have to ask then don't go. I just hear so many ugly stories, but I am a competent boater so whats the deal?

Had the chance to navigate in and out of there last week...about 2-3 hours before low on an outgoing tide. There was still 3 feet plus or minus but it was dropping quickly...no real "channel" near the mouth but it's marked with buoys. Follow the channel markers carefully once inside...there are rocks and such as you get closer to Town Cove. Also, the Cove Landing launch site is under construction...

If you are going to fish the backside go the extra miles and launch out of Ryders Cove. Although it is a little tricky at low tide there is less to worry about than Nauset Inlet.

And launch during daylight without fog or you will end up on the sand. Also watch the wind and the swell. Crossing the bar can be treacherous.

Oh, and get there at about 3 in the AM as there is only parking for about 5 vehicles. Or, just consider the $50 fine for parking in one of about 10 resident parking spaces a cost of the trip.

Launch behind Goose Hummock, if there is no parking then look across the street!
