Beginner looking for NE spots

Iím new to the spearfishing world and looking for beginner spots. Iíve lived in NE my whole life, currently in NH. From scouring the forums Iíve heard of a few spots in RI and MA. Any beginner spots in NH/ME?
Iíd like to start with shore entry, but I do have kayaks and a boat.
Thanks.

I hope someone private messages you. If not you have more chance of growing a 3rd nipple then getting a public response on locations. Best of luck though.

Not opposed to PMs or growing more nipples.

Re: Beginner looking for NE spots

I recommend using this tool to find good structure to dive and find spots:

https://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/bathymetry/#

The highest resolution you'll get of the bottom is deselecting everything and selecting only "BAG color shaded relief". Areas with lots of variety in the topography, as well as ledges and rock piles in otherwise isolated areas are all places that will hold fish. Try looking at the tip of either cove at fort wetherill (a relatively popular spot for all forms of diving) in Jamestown RI to get an idea of what some good structure looks like. You can overlay a nautical chart when at the appropriate zoom level for the chart so that you can see rough depth samplings to make sure the locations are within your wheelhouse.

Feel free to PM me with any questions!

Kings beach in RI is a good shore dive.

Re: Beginner looking for NE spots

New Hampshire has some great diving from shore. There are lots of spots to find stripers as the water warms up. Not too many tog up there. The bass come in shallow-10-20' of water, or less. At high tide you can find them cruising the channels in the rockweed. If you move very slowly and quietly, you will have a better chance at shooting one. Another nice thing up there is that there are quite a few free access spots along the coast. You can also visit Atlantic Aquasport, dive shop run by Don Stevens at 433 Sagamore Road, Rye NH, to get more info and fishing condition updates.
