On the harbour side closer to the mainland, and about 35 yards offshore I used to drop those multi hook jigs for flounder off of a skiff and pull up 4-5 at a time, then go sell them at the Fish store (food not pets) that was down at the Public Landing in old town and sell them for 10 cents a pop (mid/late 60's). It's funny how well you can remember stuff from so long ago and forget to take out the trash today....

On the neck there is a small pond you can hike to, that has several sizable snapping turtles and some very large red carp. The turtles are human savvy so you have to lay in the grass for them to come up.
yeah, i usually soak for three days freeze for two and then dry...its excessive, but i wouldn't risk any other

I took a trip up there and walked away with a bag o' rocks for $20 bucks. Great price and some cool quartzite. Unfortunately it was covered in pyrite. Anybody have a rock garden?

peter_l Garden stores, side of the road, open lots...

Depends on what kind of rocks you are looking for.

Sparky007 Not sure if it's legal but I collected some Granite from the Sheep's fold park in Medford. New England is one giant hunk of granite so I don't think they will miss a few stones. They don't' seem to be touching the PH/KH/GH at all and the shrimps are all over them. They are fractured and not water smoothed, but I like the way they look.
