Anyone have any suggestions for any nice beach areas, state park beaches and any places to maybe surf fish along the coast down the Belfast area or in the general vicinity of?

We enjoyed Popham Beach but are looking for some good spots further up.

Default Fishing spot ideas ME

Most of these are from zooming in on googlemaps.com
I am not sure if every one is on public property or if you'd need to secure permission first from property owners

but I think I have a number of probable public areas for you to research
check them out on googlemaps map view and satellite view

Why not take a ferry out to Monhegan Island- not sure if they allow fishing tho might want to check

Also ferry out to Squirrel Island off of Boothbay Harbor might work

The southport island area south of southport looks promising for fishing spots as well

I'm sure you could ask some locals in Southport and Boothbay harbor some good local spots

Ocean point near Boothbay harbor - Linekin bay area looks promising as well
shore rd area
(look in googlemaps at these locations I'm listing)

Pemaquid point

Christmas Bay near Bristol

Pemaquid Beach

new Harbor

Waldoboro might be a possibility along the Medomak river

Pleasant point on the st george river might do as well

or somewhere along the St George River

Marshall Point off of Port Clyde might work too or Port Clyde itself

Martinsville would be another location --Mosquito Harbor
bring bug -spray? =)

you can fish off a boat float at bayside dock (about 3 mi south of belfast off rt 1) after 5 pm i believe-stripers when running and mackrell, ducktrap has some decent fishing-lincolnville/northport line, rent a boat and go ocean fishing in the bay. there is a park in swanville with swimming and picnic sites, lake st. george (west on rt 3 in liberty) has swimming, camping and picnic sites also boat ramps. go to the breakwater in rockport/rockland-awsome fishing there.

up the road from belfast, searsport has a public dock to fish from

yrs ago, down by fort popham was a hotspot, cast out a chunk of mackerel, and let it set on the bottom, good for blues or stripers, two hours before high tide.
