Fishing in Lynn Harbor
Posted August 21 2009 - 12:15 PM
I am new to Massachusetts, Salt Water fishing, and this forum! With all that said does anyone have any advice on catching fish in the Lynn Harbor? I live in Lynn and that is really the only place I can get to right now because I am without transportation and the shore is walking distance from my home.
As I said I am new to salt water fishing so any and all tips, tricks, and advice will be greatly, GREATLY appreciated.
Oh P.S. I have decent rods and reels (for salt water) just not much else.

What exactly do you mean by good structure, and what constitutes a good current? I'm from West Texas, and have only fished in Lakes, so excuse my ignorance.

especially in that part of town
One needs to observe water or current movement. You will need to observe how and when they formulate the place you plan to fish. Current movement can be detected by sight and one indicator can be a ripple effect in an area of the water and the surounding water appears calm The faster current movement can also be a good place to plug especially along the outer edges.
I am sure others will chime in to perhaps give you a better idea at the place you have indicted you will fish. Now if you had ever fished for Red Fish while in Texas you would have been given a head start when dealing with current movements and changes in the water colunm

take the bus or ride a bike out to nahant for a day trip
Lynn harbors water temps are a bit high right now but check it out during this new moon low tide so you can remember what is there when the water comes in (channel sand bars)
