Maine Striper Fishing Professional Review and Guide
"Maine already has more shore fishing that it can use, though the activity is not concentrated on the more southern coasts, as the forthcoming listing might imply. Maine’s bountiful resources are further enhanced by the view its inhabitants take toward the enjoyment of the outdoors and access to it.
In Maine, most landowners would not even look up from their newspapers to concern themselves with a passing sportfisher, unless it was to shout a friendly greeting. Conversely, in most of the states that make up the Striper Coast, shorelines are so jealously guarded that the discreet habits one must use to gain access, such as fishing in the deep of night and hiding one’s auto, are as much a part of shore fishing as sharp hooks. Thus, not only does Maine have more, but its people—save for a few newcomers—are more anxious to share it."
