Yes you need a saltwater license..you can buy a 5 day.

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge is your best bet to fish and stay away from crowds (no swimming allowed). $5 per day or $15 for the duck stamp (whole year).

Back Bay has two trail which lead to the beach...get on the beach and find a hole.....

Otherwise, you can fish the south end of little island park down from the pier as there is a fishing area.
