Well I dont want you guys to give away your honey holes but what are some popular places in Ct where I can shore fish? I already surf fish around Harkness State Park. Where else can I go? Thanks.

The beach/water is there for all to enjoy, not just the people closest to it. I mean its almost relaxing IMO to watch a fisherman trying his tacticts on the beach. Get a life people!

Thats the tough part. The guy yelling at me to get off his beach gets a polite lesson about public land usage, then a polite finger in the air accompanied by a fitting expletive, if needed. As long as the cop he calls knows the law, its more amusing than anything.
