Tiverton is a nice place for stripers, blues and blackfish. There are several productive riverine and estuarine spots in town, and your're only 10-20 min from rock strewn open ocean to the south. The Cape Cod Canal is about 40 min and most southcounty locations are 30-50 min away.
If you find a house close to rte 24, access to other locations is much faster. Living on the south side of town adds considerable distance, but it's a little more secluded.
If you do go househunting in the area, feel free to look me up...
