Hi folks.
I'm looking for a good wharf to fish off of with my little fellas.
I used to fish off several when I was a kid, but those wharfs have all been closed to fishing now.
I'm just hoping someone here knows of a good one that still allows people to fish from because I think it would be a great way to spend a day with the boys and introduce them to the same kind of fun I had.
If anyone knows somthing, please let me know.
Thanks.

We'll be glad to help you! We just need to know where abouts you live, or at least how far you're willing to travel as we have no idea where you are.

Wow! That was quick! Thanks!
I live in Saint John, but travel is not really an issue. I regularly drive from here to St. George, and I don't mind going the extra few miles for a good day's fishing.

I'll let somebody else fill you in with that area, however I think you can fish off the wharf in either Dipper Harbour or Black's Harbour, or maybe both? I know in behind the reversing falls restaurant (the one in the parking lot, not next to the bridge) there's a walking trail that takes you down to a dock where they keep the boat for boat tours. As long as you don't leave any mess, they don't mind you fishing there.

Beaver Harbour wharf, Black's harbour (ferry landing, fisherman's wharf), Letang, Deer Island ferry, Limekiln, Chance Harbour, Little Lepreau, Lorneville, Black River wharf, St Martins wharf.... where else am I missing.

Caught lots of fish at the old maces bay wharf years ago, but not sure if the new wharf is any good as I have struck out 3 times there. Beaver harbour I think should be a good spot. I always did well for flounder, mackerel, bluefish there. Limekiln/Letang was good the few times I fished it for mackerel when they weren't biting in other spots. Lots of koreans/locals fish Black's harbour, so it can be tight for space. I've caught pollock and mackerel once and awhile almost everywhere else. The wharves in Grand Manan were by far the greatest anywhere when I was younger. The water was clear enough to see to the bottom. Schools of mackerel and pollock would swim by, you could watch huge 10lb plus sculpin fight over you jig, see the odd striper chase your bait and there would always be some different fish around too, cod, flounder, etc.
