Fishing Barbstable Harbor/Outgoing Tide

Guys: I'm going to fish Barnstable tomorrow AM. High tide at 4:30 AM, so, I'll be there for the outgoing tide. Would you expect to find fish inside, around Horshoe Shoal, at the Mill Creek area, around Beach Point or farther out in the channel? Also, is the East bar or West Bar fishing better?
I'm taking my 12 year old son out, and, I want to get him into some fish quickly so he won't get bored!!!!
We'll be using light tackle spinning and fly gear.

Thanks in advance.........

I fished Barnstable Harbor today from 7am to 4pm so I got outgoing and incoming. East bar had fish chasing small bait all day 16' to 20' of water. They moved fast. Largest landed 29". A white sluggo seemed to work best. Granted they may not be there monday. Drifting horseshoe on the outgoing was more productive then the incoming. Try drifting the edge of the sand bar opposite Beach Point. Picked up a few there as well.
Water temp. outside hit 62 and inside over the sandbars 70
If at first you do not succeed-sky diving is not the sport for you.

Bob: Thanks! I ended up taking my son this afternoon for the outgoing tide. The wind had really kicked up and it was a blowout. Will try it again tomorrow....
