Northshore flyfishing.

Go to any fly shop in Essex county. Just ask directions to the "Candy Store" in Gloucester. 

Yep....   Might have been the canoe spot I was talking about....

Love fishing the northshore PM if you want to get out there on fly

 

also might be worth getting a fishing sticker from town of ipswitch allows you to park at cranes beach from close until open i.e. fish the graveyard shifft

That area will have fish, I never fished it from shore but the whole Boston Harbor area can be very good on given days. I suspect that you may just have to watch were you wade I somehow think the bottom in some areas can be a bit soft.

I.E.- do you enjoy long walks in waders through tick infested dunes and soft sand for the chance at a giant?

Hit the Bear's Den show and was blown away, never seen a fly shop like that before. Spent $100+ on bucktails alone... Met lots of people including Rich Murphy who very generously gifted me a copy of his book. Thanks again Rich! Awesome to see so much fishy energy at the show and get the low down on the area. Psyched for the spring!

That would be awesome, I'll work on the post count. I'll definitely look into the fishing sticker, thanks for the tip

do yourself a favor and get in touch with David Skok. Great guide. Had a day with him a few summers ago.  Best day of shallow water stripper fishing i ever experience.Gurglers on top.

Walk out and around the sugar bowl (from the parking lot) and fish the first inlet/outlet.  Tough with a flyrod but you can wade the sugar bowl too.  Gets crowded with all sorts of people.   There are other and easier places to fish on the harbor.

Good to know! A few years ago I found myself at Castle Island at 6:00am and it was beautiful and surprising empty. If I fish there, I'd probably hit the water pretty early just for the peace and quiet.

and Any other suggestions on some good wade fishing? I predominately freshwater fish for bass and trout in western ma, but would like to try my hand at saltwater this year.

Early morning is best, and it is a beautiful place!

 

I fish both western Ma and the harbor.  When you have enough posts send me a PM and I'll fill you in on the harbor.
