Its urban fishing, said Peter Santini, owner of Fishing Finatics on Main Street in Everett. Cars and trucks go by, but there are stripped bass and blue fish. From May to October, fisherman set up shop on the concrete sidewalks that line the structure while tractor-trailers and cars wheel down the span. They park their cars -- hazard lights on -- behind large orange cones that line the sides of the street.
Its a good spot because of the funnel, Santini said of the bottleneck that connets the river to the Boston Harbor. The big fish push the little fish.
