Hello,

Being new to Saltwater fishing, I could use some help with any locations that I could try within 100 km or so of St.John. It really doesn't matter what I am fishing for as I will likely be releasing everything I catch anyway. I would be very interested in Stripers but not fussy. Is there any specific beaches or piers in this area that may be worth trying?

Thanks,

Rob

flytyer1, try: St. Martins wharf; little lepreaux (off the causway & the wharfs, the best is closed); beaver harbour; blacks harbour.
you can also try the shuttle dock below the restaurants reversing falls west. the first bunch is for mackeral, pollock, flounder. the last is for stripers and pollock, and the causway can have anything.
tight lines!

is the causeway the part the road goes over with the bridge, or the one farther out?

would really like to know since I'll be stuck down in the dipper harbour area for 2 weeks this fall.

Hey Noelco, once they're in, all you need is to find yourself a pier/wharf with at least ten feet of water to fish off of for them. They'll follow the tide much like a striper would.

We have been catching mackerel and pollock down off the old Granmanan ferry wharf right along. The wife and I were down to the SilverKing restaurant yesterday, {yum} and fished for a couple hours. The tide was actually on the way out, but we still did pretty good on the pollock. Got a few macks but both were really small! Just wanted striper bait anyway!

Yeah,same here IPOP,the average size is only 7-8''.I was fishing flounders a few years back down in back bay and we had a run in with a school of pollock. They were all 2-3lbs avg,couldn't get the bait down to the founders. We ended up jamming a rod under the boat seat with a spoon on the end,the rocking of the waves was all it took. We must have boated 4-5 dozen that day.There were 4 of us and one buddy offered to trade his flounder fillets for the pollock,that's how much he liked them. Keep hoping I run into another school with that size fish again!
