In fact, if you’re not on the hunt for recreational fishing equipment, the state is home to a number of outdoor recreational fishing spots.
For starters, the best spots to fish in Massachusetts are at the mouth of the Cape Cod River, where fishing is legal.
The state also boasts the only fishing camps near Boston, which are open from June through October, and the Cape Lighthouse in Massachusetts Bay, which is open to the public until January.
There are also plenty of recreational fishing opportunities at the Cape Mendel and Cape Cod lakes.
