Herring run at Mystic Details
Name:Herring run at Mystic
Created By:enogueira
Details:So, today after the gym i decided to stop by upper/lower mystic lake at the dam just to see whats going on and the herring are here.

there was a guy from the rocks and a boat with two guys doing some weird kind of fishing, i then moved to upper mystic at the docks and in 10 mins, 3 police cars showed up.. i was like "WTF DID I DO WRONG?!", but the cops werent there for me. someone called the ranger who called the cops for the boat guys and sure enough they were herring fishing (which is illegal at the mystics) they got a huge fine, equipment confiscated and i was just watching.. haha. bottom line, stripers will be moving in this week if they arent already there.

i grew up on the mystic river i also have a dock on the river... sometimes i even moor my boat on it ... Anyways it is safe to say i know all about the herring run... When i was a kid the whole shoreline from the Dam to the locks would be filled with herring.... When you go to the damm it may look like a lot of fish .. but let me say this ... it is so depleted its not even funny. Its sad that we cannot use herring as bait but it is definatly a neccesity to have it shut down.. Hopefully 1 day i can catch 4 at a time on sabiki rig then live line it again. Until that day comes again(hopefully it will) It will be tube and worm or live linning Macks.... Yes you should call the cops!!!!

What a story. Glad they got the herring guys. I still wonder when I see police when I am fishing, because my friends and I were usually getting in trouble while fishing as teenagers. Nice post.
