The last time I was in that area was in the late 70's and that pier was a disaster then, I'm surprised it a hasn't been restored, its a great location for the local anglers and kids. It hasn't been mentioned but that area along the sea to its left was a hot spot for blues and bass.
It runs behind some those businesses on the Lynnway. A seawall type bulkhead built up with wood ties like railroad ties. Its only fishable at higher tides because of the tide drop. We used to drive right out (bumpy unpaved grass like) park and fish no more than 10 feet from car. Without exaggerating it was not unusual to have 50 or so people fishing there. It was all plugging. Someone once told me it used to be an offloading site for coal barges in the old days.
