if i were you i'd try the whistle buoy first. it's right off the point and it's big and red with a light on the top of it. pretty easy to find in the dark. we go there all the time to make macks. you can meter around first, or just start a drift right next to it. if you have frozen 'chovies or 'dines tip your bait rigs with them and it'll work better.
good luck. looking forward to the report, we're heading out friday.
