Green Harbor MA
Local Inshore Cod fishing Green Harbor in September.
September is usually a very good month for fishing in the northeast. Hurricane Irene stirred things up as she passed through and left some very cold water in her wake. The coastal water temperature was roughly 70 degrees before the storm and now it is closer to 60 degrees or less. The colder water brings new inshore fishing opportunities, specifically local Cod.
Local cod are easily identifiable by their brilliant red coloring. They produce beautifully clean white (completely wormless) fillets. You can expect to find keepers jigging in 50ft of water within a mile or two from Green Harbor. I stumbled into a few nice fish while searching for baitfish (Pollack and Mackerel).
