  1. Speaking of the Charles, how soon do you think the fishing action gets good? I'm thinking about going out and getting my line wet on bass or crappie while having a second rod standing by for catfish and carp.
  2. I live in the northeast (Massachusetts) and it's currently pretty cold here. I know that fish slow down for the winter, but would I be wasting my time trying to fish a pond while it's ~40 degrees out (air temp, not sure about water)? There's a pond behind the building at work and I was wondering if it would be worthwhile to try fishing it in the winter. I've read reports of Largemouths, Bluegills, and catfish in that pond. I'd probably want to target the largemouths or the catfish. I'll be fishing from shore.
  3. If you're talking about the Atlantic Silversides that are plentiful out there, take as many as you want. They're everywhere, and they die if you look at them wrong, so you might as well keep them. They're one of the most plentiful fish out there.
  4. I'm free to go next Friday (8/31) if anyone wants to set something up.
  5. The toxin in eel blood is destroyed by cooking, and your digestive process if ingested. So, unless you're injecting eel blood into yourself, you'll be fine.
  6. I was going to ask about the lagoon too. I've seen it referred to as the sugar bowl. I participate in another hobby which puts me right at the sugar bowl lagoon and I can't leave, but I could bring my gear and drop a line. I was hoping that someone with experience fishing there could tell me whether I'd catch anything. I'm hoping that there's some landlocked blues in there or something. There are two gates where the water comes and goes with the tide, but those gates always appear to be closed so that only water can go through, and maybe small fish. I've seen schools of silversides in the sugar bowl.
  7. Hi, I'm new here as well. I have very little experience saltwater fishing, having only gone twice (fished Castle Island once, and went to Plum Island with a friend) although I have a lot of experience fishing in ponds and rivers. I'm looking for a fishing buddy or a group of locals to fish with as well. I do have a few questions about some spots in the area, but they might be too specific for the open forum. Has anyone tried fishing Fort Point channel? I'm thinking maybe I could try fishing from the Harborwalk.
