« on: Sep 03, 2020, 12:11 PM »

If I am shore bound I would look at Halibut Point State Park in Rockport. A rocky shoreline with big and small fish around that will fish well in daylight hours. I would work the shore with hardware.

If you're in Springfield you might have a shorter drive to the CT shore (just 1.5 hours, tops) I recommend Bluff Point State Park in Groton. It's a 1.3 mile walk from the parking lot to the point but once on the point you have a good shot at everything Long Island Sound has to offer. Very scenic as well.

I second this. I love surf fishing from a sandy beach. Your Mass. saltwater license (you do have one?) is good in CT and RI. Lots of beaches in RI starting with Misquamicut and heading east. Parking should be free after this weekend. Surf is rougher in RI since Long Island is no longer a factor. Fish are bigger, too.

Check before you go...some of our shoreline access is limited due to covid.

I second this.  I bring my bike every time I go now in the event that I need to park further away and ride my bike to the preferred spot.

Parking seems to be the only issue. We don't see a ton of enforcement like an outter cape Beach.  The guys that catch really large bass in CT from shore are typically chunking bunker.  I'd recommend Harkness...long walk but well worth it.

Sorry it didn't work out for you there. Just got back from that area and it was slow the past few days but we did hit a run of Albies on the beach on Saturday. 

How did you like the  walk? Don't let the one trip keep you away from the Bluff, it lights up next month.

This past week, all the action per the reports were from Watch Hill east so you may want to check out RI beaches.

Point Judith. Galillee, East Matunuck, Charlestown breachway. if one is dead after 30 minutes, go to the next. Look for birds.
