    Long drive for me, but it is on my list of places I want to fish...hard to leave the "lower slower" during the peak of our Spring season, but...that is two "buts" so tentatively I am in...

    The launch is into furness bay. The flats are open water but range from only inches to a few feet deep.
    The deeper water are the boat channels around the flats.
    Fish like the edges of the channels and the edges of the weed beds out on the flats
    I have found most people use paddle tail lures on a lead head.
    Second most popular are the minnow body lipped crank baits.
    Third are the spinner baits and rattle traps

    It's going to depend on the weeds, which should be pretty thick by then. At some point in the season trolling becomes difficult because of constantly needing to clear debris.

    Paddle tails, Umbrella rigs, what ever you use for stripers, for use on the flats and the channels off stump point. Any type of your favorite large/small mouth bass rigs for mill creek and furnace bay. The channel that runs beside Perry point park and the VA hospital can be good fishing but it's a narrow channel and all sorts of boats haul ass through there on the weekends.

    " Do we need any parking permits for the park? "

    No parking permit is required for the park. It opens at this time of year around 7:30am. The launch is a cement side walk going onto pebble stone beach. There is about a 12" drop off from the cement to the beach, dependent on the tides. if high the water will be right up to the cement. There should be fairly clean grass areas in mill creek and furnace bay how much they interfere will be again dependent on the tides. It wont be hot enough yet for the algea so the bass fishing can be pretty good this time of year.
