Default what can I catch tomorrow 10-12-08? (Merrimack river)

I just got my new boat today and I want to get out tomorrow... it's supposed to be a really nice day! I'll be fishing in the Merrimack river and I'll be out front as well.

I can't troll (supposed to break in the motor first ) so I was hoping to anchor up and fish for whatever. Are the stripers still around? How about Flounder?

I don't have a lot of gear but I should have what's needed to fish mackeral chunks for stripers or sea worms for flounder. Any tips?

Thanks

This is a day late and I don't live in that area but after reading this I was scratching my head....you can't troll before you break in the motor.....so you're gonna anchor up? BREAK IN THAT MOTOR!!!!

Never heard of that one either. If you were restricted to a small body of water and unable to drive fast, would the boat know just 'cause ya had a line in the water? Use the search button, guy by the name of Roccus and you'll get all the answers you're looking for ....good luck!!!

Guys, the reason I can't troll is because I'm not supposed to run the motor at that low RPM for a long time. Their reasoning is that since it's not broken in yet and things aren't properly seated, at low RPMs there will be more blow-by of unburnt fuel which will end up in the crank case causing 2 things to happen: additional crankcase pressure and a thinning of lubricant.

Now, I'm not a mechanic, I'm just doing what the dealer has told me to do - don't go out out trolling until I have 10 hours on the engine.

I just wanted to explain so you guys wouldn't think I was an idot

That's why we anchored to fish (engine off).

We had a great day, kid caught a dogfish which he got a huge kick out of.

So you got a boat as well? I'll probably eventually buy a boat.
