Urban Assault?

We talked about the harbor island ferry system and how they are trying to promote it for recreation lately in past posts... it seems that if there was a time to try that it would be now.

And I wouldn't want to be the only one on the ferry with waders and a stripping basket so I'd be looking for conspirators

That sounds pretty cool. When are you guys thinking?

Long Wharf would be good for me, and I'm an aquarium member so parking is at a reduced rate right next door.

Terry -

Nice reference material... but the maps don't show rips, shoals and bait masses }>

Guess we'll have to find them for ourselves.

What do you know, you can camp there overnight...

The question is which island, which tide, etc. Obviously Peddocks will have good current flow on both tides through Hull Gut on the north end. Lovell's has a narrows on the inside and faces open water on the north face. Nothing really jumps out at me looking at maps, maybe the next step is to go to ortho photos (http://coast.mit.edu)

GregO - I agree! Hey if you have any pull over there, can you get them to take minus tide, mid-tide and big tide images? }>

I can't guarantee being able to go but I'm interested in this trip. Camping would definitely be the ticket to dawn / dusk fishing. My memory of taking the ferry out to Georges Island for sight seeing is that it ran from ~ 10 am to 4 pm.
I seem to remember discussions about harbor island camping on the old BBS5 at Reel-Time 2-3 years ago. There might be some info on the topic in their archives.

So getting right to the point -

Any thoughts on these concerns/questions? Anyone who has done it before must have an opinion.

My tidbit: Grape Island has that long spit that comes off on the west size, which forms a strong rip on the ebb and I am confident it will have fish coming over it on the flood.

The Bible on fishing Boston Harbor is Jack Gartsides Flyfishing Boston Harbor. Check out his web site. Not sure of the exact title .You can order the book direct from Jack. In his book he decribes the fishery and how to fish it. I would be up for such a trip. I can tell you that its a early morning first light and evening deal because of all the boat traffic. Stoddards in Boston is sure to have a copy.

Looks like this one needs someone to take charge of the arrangements to make it a success... I'll help from the web side of things.

I have the Gartside book.

I fished Peddock's on, I think it was, the weekend of June 23/4, and camped overnight. I am not eager to return.

I'm hoping to get out to Lovell's the first weekend in August, but I haven't got my reservation yet.

Parking at Hingham is free.
