Living in New England has many attractions including activities for the whole family, one of which is deep-sea fishing. The New England coast offers various excellent opportunities for those who love the challenge of deep-sea fishing. With an abundance of fishing charters available in New England, it has become a fisherman’s paradise.
For those visiting New England, and who have never gone fishing before, there are a variety of options. Some of the commonly available fish in the New England area are striped bass, black sea bass, tautog, bluefish, scup, weakfish, winter flounder, summer flounder, mackerel, false albacore, haddock, halibut and many more.
Beginning anglers might try surf casting at Half Mile Beach in Maine. June and July are the best times to go for the striped bass that are drawn there by the warmer waters flowing from Little River in Reid State Park. But for the best bass fishing from shore, longtime residents recommend Wachusett Reservoir near Worcester, Massachusetts. Large and smallmouth bass swim the well-protected shores along the eight mile long body of water. But if it’s trout you’re after, try the headwaters of the north-flowing Otter Creek, the longest and largest river system in Vermont. Rainbow and brown trout are stocked there twice a year.
