Every true angler has that one special fishing spot, the one place he or she can always count on to reel one in. Not surprisingly, many have come to refer to their special spot as Massachusetts, where you’ll find an extraordinary amount of great freshwater and saltwater fishing, all four seasons.

For freshwater fishing, you’ll enjoy more than 500 lakes, ponds, rivers and streams stocked annually with trout, bass, herring, salmon and many other varieties. Venues range from the ice-cold streams of the Berkshire Hills to the mighty Connecticut and Merrimack Rivers.

If you’re a saltwater angler, on the other hand, you will be treated to the likes of bluefish, tuna, cod, haddock, halibut and sea bass onboard charter boats, leaving from numerous Massachusetts ports in the Cape and the Islands region and up and down the coastlines.

If you’re docking in Nantucket, consider the Nantucket Boat Basin. You’ll have access to bathrooms, showers, electric, gas, internet connections, and more.
