Belfast Shoreline Professional Review and Guide

"The Belfast shoreline borders Belfast Bay, which is part of Upper Penobscot Bay. Weed beds just offshore harbor bait fish, which in turn attract striped bass. Boaters have difficulty reaching these weed beds at low tide because of rocks and shallow water, but shore-based anglers can fish here during any stage of the tide. Access is available at Belfast City Park, a scenic day-use picnic area on the shores of Belfast Bay. Key Species: striped bass.

Fishing index: Striped bass enter the upper regions of Penobscot Bay in late May and remain all summer. Anglers using bait take school stripers as well as legal-sized fish by fishing on bottom. Favorite baits include whole mackerel, menhaden, live eels, and marine worms. You can dig your own marine worms on the local mudflats at low tide, and you can catch mackerel from the Belfast footbridge."
