It's not easy when you move to a new place or are visiting somewhere and are trying to find an area to go fishing. Many people do not want to give away the location where they fish, and Mainers definitely do not share any information about where they go fishing (it's an unwritten rule).

Good luck to you if you decide to try fishing in Maine for the first time. Yes, there are websites that have some information on where you can go fishing, however, it is not always easy to find the location or know where to park. It is important to note that in the state of Maine, you do need to have a fishing license (except for when it is a free fishing weekend).

My boyfriend has been trying to go fishing but keeps running into problems every time he goes out. Some of the issues that he has run into has been not knowing where to park, not knowing which Maine Pier was the correct one to fish at, and signs saying "no fishing" where maine.gov said is a location for fishing.

When asking about some fishing locations (or a decent place to go fishing) he can never get the response that he wants. I set out to ask our listeners where he could potentially go fishing, and let me tell you, though none of the responses were helpful, some were absolutely hysterical.

It is safe to say that Mainers are some of the most secretive individuals when it comes to fishing.

15 Must-Have Items For Ice Fishing Season In Maine

Ice fishing is an excellent way to embrace the cold winter months in Maine. It will get you outdoors for some fresh air, it's family friendly, and a successful day could yield a tasty dinner. If you're new to the sport, we put together a list of gear you'll need for a fun, comfortable, and successful day on the ice. Some of these items are more essential than others. Some gear may not be essential at all, depending on how you plan to fish. Again, the items we listed are geared towards those who are new to ice fishing.

Before we get to the list, remember to dress appropriately for the cold weather. We didn't put warm outerwear on the list, but it's definitely a must-have. Dressing in layers is important to ensure you're warm enough throughout the day on the ice. If you start getting too warm, you can simply take a layer off. Hand warmers are also worth packing.
