Boston surfcasting locations

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.

Boston here as well (charlestown) - It has been the summer of skunk for me, not a single catch in this state/region. Got lucky with a schoolie in maine back in May but that's the first and last I have caught. Hope to break that streak.

Iv also wondered if people fish fort point channel, iv never seen anyone there but seems likes good area. Have a few spots id try sometime after work(closer to barking) but was just curious if anyone has had luck there before?

 

I hit castle island last week, saw a couple guys fishing inside- does anyone ever hook up inside?  That opening is tiny, i can't belive many fish go in there. I struck out at the end t unfortunately, very weedy too. 

In my experience very few people hook up inside OR outside of the bowl. But I’ve seen guys who swear that the bowl holds decent fish at times.

Wanted to go this morning till i realized it was drizzzling and low so i said screw it and went back to sleep for another hour lol, now iv got the itch

Anybody up to go fishing this weekend?

Went this morning before work behind schraffts. Saw some jumps, and heard a slurp or two near me but that was it. Not even a hit. Another guy there weight and bait with scallops (havnt heard of that before but he said its effective). Lots of little baits around, pogies were there last night, splashing but i didnt see them this morning idn what t say. About to give up on that spot, skunked a few times now. Tide wasn't favorable, i caught the last 2 hours of the outgoing. Maybe i'll give it another early morning shot on an incoming

 

Anybody have any luck here? Post pogiepocalypse preferably but tbh i'm curious if anyone ever hooks up there

I fished Castle Island some 15-20 or so times this season, mostly at daybreak.   Caught a few schoolies on the outflow, and one schoolie on the inflow.   Very discouraging.   There's only one youtube video of a guy catching a questionably legal fish on the inside a few years ago.  Bottom line is the place is a bit too shallow for anything appreciable to be feeding there.   I wish someone could prove me wrong.  It's a beautiful place to go before the crowds, and it's convenient.   But it's all throwbacks.

Do they still throw everybody out of Pleasure Bay/sugar bowl at night? That place used to be pretty good after dark, then a few years back, you'd get rousted, and I stopped going.

I'm free to go next Friday (8/31) if anyone wants to set something up.

I might go later today/tonight. Send me an email if you are still planning to go, assuming you didn't go already:
