Beach Points: What They Are & How To Find Them


It’s beach fishing time!

Last week we did a podcast showing how we caught tons of fish along a beach point.

We got a lot of good comments and questions from that video, but one question that came up a few times is this:

What exactly is a beach point?

That’s a great question, since beach points are some of the best places to catch fish along a beach.

In this video, I’ll show you two different types of beach points and how you can find them on satellite maps.

Whether you’re targeting snook and trout, like we were in the podcast, or you’re targeting pompano and whiting, finding these beach points will help you catch more fish.

The type of beach point we fished in the podcast was a hard point near the pass.

There was lots of depth change, current, and bait, so tons of predator fish were attracted to it.

We caught trout, jacks, snook, and hooked into several sharks.

These are the easiest beach points to find since they’re at the end of the beach.

Here’s what these points look like on a satellite map:

Another type of beach point is just any turn or slight point in a beach.

This little bit of structure changes the way the waves break along the shore and can cause there to be depth changes that you can’t see from the surface.

These types of spots are great for targeting species such as pompano or whiting.

Below is an example of what a softer beach point looks like on a satellite map.

Any change in a beach’s shoreline can attract fish, whether that’s a point at the end of a barrier island along a pass or inlet, or just a slight point or turn that breaks up a straight shoreline.
