    Guys I have a job opportunity in Scarborough Maine.. I am not familar with the area and was just wondering how the fishing opportunities were there. Taking a guess at good striper and blues.. but what else? Sharks?

    excellent fishing locally off the beaches and inlets for stripers and blues, excellent fishing offshore for school bluefin tuna to 150 lbs, excellent ground fishing for cod & haddock - shark fishing is limited pretty much to blue dogs (blue sharks) with the rare mako or porbeagle thrown in to the mix - scarborough is located just south of portland which is an outstanding seaport -casco bay just north of portland is a honey hole for big 40 - 50 lb striped bass - when is the store scheduled to open? - you could do a lot worse than scarborough

    Inshore Bluefish on poppers will make you never want to leave.

    The folks are correct, plenty of great fishing in Maine. You are also within easy driving distance of Cape Ann & Cape Cod. To top it off, Maine is a great state. Enjoy!

    i Live in portsmouth... there are plenty of fish to catch tons of freshwater. but stripers, blues, ground fish, assorted sharks and football Bluefin are the staples these days. you can fish all year if your real motivated but few are.... there is a major inshore run of 40+ lb cod fish that will start in a month or so and typically they are within a few miles of the beach!

    Well guys looks like I will be coming that way with in the next couple of weeks.. I'm definatly looking forward to exploring outside my comfort zones on some saltwater fishing.. I've mostly been a salmon steelhead trout guy.. plus all that warmwater stuff. Guided Alaska for a number of years and got a couple barndoors up there during the homer derby... looking forward to the opportunity to get out and catch something that will tear my freakin face off.

    No hoopin' up here. Only commercial lobsterman are allowed to catch 'em. That would be cool, though.

    well there is some good salmon and trout fishing here thats for sure.. you do get the occasional Hali. and on the note of lobsta's, you can dive for them in MA. and you can get a 5 trap lic for MA, NH and i believe in ME too.
