Salem fishing 101?

Thinking about taking the family to Salem for the weekend.

Any advice on some "easy" family fishing around the Salem? Will live eels right off the mooring in the harbor fetch any fish? OK, maybe that's too easy.

Anyhow, would love to squeeze in some fishing time after visting the witches at those haunted houses so any type of fishing advice for the Salem area will be appreciated. Another great weekend(weather wise) predicted!

Hi Wasabi,
There is a place in Salem called "Salem Willows"
It has a peir that quite a few fish from.
Below is some tide information.

Sa 30 Low 1:25 AM 0.6 5:34 AM Rise 12:30 AM 31
30 High 7:41 AM 7.9 8:06 PM Set 4:23 PM

Su 31 Low 2:27 AM 0.7 5:35 AM Rise 1:06 AM 22
31 High 8:43 AM 7.7 8:04 PM Set 5:25 PM
31 Low 2:31 PM 1.7

I would use some cut "Mackrel" chunks.
Use a steel leader because there are some Blue Fish around.

Be very careful not to get near their mouth for they can take of a finger or two !!!
Use 20# test line.... set the drag a little on the heavy side.
Use Clams or Large sea worms if you are fishing for Stripers.
Have a great time..
Hope this information helps.
Have fun and be safe.

I haven't fished but get these types of things from others.

Eels off the ball if something's moving on the tide, maybe.
Schoolies have been somewhat consistent in the Danvers River early and late day.
Depending where the "ball" is, you could try for some flatfish in a hole around the green can right off the SWYC.

Fish around the bait schools that will in all likelyhood come around your mooring. Theres bass and big bluefish on them.

Thanks

Fishing right off of the mooring with a beer in one hand and the barbecue tongs in the other. Sounds easy enough for me.

Soundking, congrats on the tuna outing. I'm still debating whether to take our boat out and spend $$$$$$ on fuel or spend about the same money on a professional charter outfit.

no takers

baitshop had only mackeral and pogies so that's what we tried last night. we're still on a mooring right next to the #2 red piling. 7am incoming and I see fish jumping out of the water but won't even 'follow' anything that I toss. Plastics, bucktails, sluggos metals... just saw another big splash! And i'm seeing some red marks on sonar... help!!
