I'd like to try and start fishing the habors. I live near Port Washington and would like to try salmon and trout fishing out of the harbor. I'm wondering what kind of rod set up I need? How heavy and long of a rod, what kind and pound test? What are good baits? Slip bobber fishing? Any direction would surely be appreciated!!
Wanting to Fish Harbors like Port Washington?
You can use whatever you rod you need to fish. I use a 7' medium action spinning rod with 10 pound stren mono. I have also used my 10' noodle rod and casted small spoons and rapala.
For spoons I like krocodile, little Cleo, and kastmasters. I also like casting shad raps and countdown rapala.
Have used slipbobbers and bottom rigs depending on the time of year and the fish.
