Hey all will be moving to downcast maine for a job. Would love to know about the area and more about maine. Has always been a place i wanted to spend some time in and possibly plant the roots. I love ocean fishing,foraging as well as freshwater fishing, hunting and of coarse trapping. I have been looking up all of the laws there seeing what i can and can't do as a current out of state refugee seeking asylum in your state. Anyways I have a ton of questions about fishing inshore for mackerel off the rocks. and some trapping ones. and how the land use works there. anyone care to PM or share some info would be great or just chat open on here. not looking to spot burn just more of how to do what and how to find where too. Super excited to be up there soon.

Thanks T-Man community in advance.

You can hunt trap and fish on any unposted land.Downeast Maine is right on the coast.Great sea duck hunting on the ocean.Nice ocean fishing for cod,pollock,and flounder.Great area also to dig clams.
