Lynn completed their first double of the season against a disappointing Barnet side who, despite an intake of signings since the start of the year, showed why they are near the bottom of the league table.
For Barnet it was their eighth defeat from nine games to leave manager Tim Flowers describing the Bees' performance as "Like watching children play".
The Lynn line-up showed a number of changes since the Notts County game with Jordan Richards suspended, Chris Smith and Ryan Jarvis dropping to the bench.
It meant starts for Michael Clunan, Adam Marriott and Michael Gash.
All credit to Lynn who took advantage of the visitor's frailties, particularly in defence.
The first goal arrived on eight minutes with Cameron King working his way into the area before setting up Gash with a simple finish from 10 yards.
Alex Kiwomya then tested Bees' keeper Scott Loach before Gash scored his second on 20 minutes when he headed home Kiwomya's cross.
The Lynn defence were caught napping on 28 minutes when a long clearance from Roach found Jonathan Hooper who ran through to score.
Normal service was soon resumed. Lynn had an effort cleared off the line and then Gash was denied his hat trick from a header.
Barnet were relying on long balls into the Lynn half and one nearly paid off but Michael Petrasso's shot found the side netting.
It was a similar story after the restart. Barnet tried to get back in the game but lacked the quality. Harry Taylor had an early effort that lacked pace while at the other end Marriott fired over when well placed. Sonny Carey then had an effort strike the top corner of the woodwork.
Having lost Kyle Callan-McFadden to injury at half time Lynn saw Rory McAuley, making his 100th appearance, go the same way on the hour mark.
The Bees did manage to test Archie Mair in the Lynn goal with a shot from Anthony Wordsworth but on 62 minutes Lynn put the game beyond Barnet with a third goal, Marriott setting up King for his first goal of the season - most deserved.
Just to emphasise Lynn's dominance a couple of goals were added in the dying minutes. Substitute Dayle Southwell was on hand to tap home after Loach could only parry a shot from Marriott and then Marriott made it five from a tight angle.
