Fishing in New Jersey
Few other states can match the diversity of the saltwater species flourishing in our waters.  In addition to the world-class surf fishing found along our coastline, anglers can also board boats to fish both inshore and offshore waters.  New Jersey boasts some outstanding saltwater sport fishing ports of call that have evolved over the years to serve the needs of the many anglers who regularly fish state waters. Pick a spot along the New Jersey Shore and you will find a nearby seaport serving the fishing public.

The jewel in the crown of the New Jersey Shore's many sport fishing harbors is the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Marina.  Situated on Sandy Hook Bay and adjacent to Raritan Bay, it is just a short run to such celebrated fishing locales as the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers, Chapel Hill, Flynn's Knoll, the Sandy Hook rip, Shrewsbury Rocks, Ambrose Channel and Romer Shoal.

Sea Girt to Little Egg Harbor, Absecon, Cape May, Delaware Bay, Point Pleasant, Manasquan, Belmar and Long Beach Island.  New Jersey offers more than 400 publicly accessible lakes, ponds and reservoirs. These waters offer a great diversity of fishing opportunities, from abundant populations of panfish to trophy-sized game fish. There are also miles of public streams and rivers

Species found in and around New Jersey include weakfish, blackfish, bluefish, porgies, fluke, flounder striped bass, cod, ling, and large pelagic fish like tuna, and sharks, and seal sightings are not unusual during the fishing season.

March - April: Blackfish, Ling, Cod
April - May: Winter Flounder, Striped Bass
June - November: Fluke, Bluefish, Striped Bass, Weakfish

Point Pleasant and Brielle are both in very close proximity to Manasquan inlet. The area plays host to a number of charter and party boats . It is perhaps best known for itís fleet of Hudson Canyon and off shore charter fishing boats. If your quarry is large sport fish such as Tuna, Marlin or Shark this area has one of the highest concentrations of the most experienced boats and captains in the state. Canyon Fishing is not for the faint of heart you are likely make an exciting 70 mile run off shore

Sandy Hook, Sandy Hook Bay - This seven mile long, 1,665 acre, barrier spit is surrounded by water on three sides and marks the northern most part of the 128 miles of New Jersey coastline.  The area offers excellent oceanfront, back bay, and river access. Sandy Hook, NJ and its surrounding Bay waters are fed by four river systems that converge and comprise what is known as part of the New York Bight. These river systems are the Hudson, Raritan, Shrewsbury, and the Navesink.  Sandy Hook, NJ is one of the most popular surf fishing areas in the northern part of the state.  It is bordered to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by Sandy Hook Bay.  A tremendous number of fly fishing opportunities are available for both the shore bound longrodder and recreational boater.

Twin Lights of the Highlands  - Overlooks the Shrewsbury River and the Highlands Bridge. Crossing over this Bridge will give one access to the Hook. The entrance to the Hook is the first area that should be explored as it offers excellent opportunities for striped bass, weakfish, and bluefish.  At this point the Shrewsbury River parallels the Hook and empties into Sandy Hook Bay. Swift currents are present along the Bay side and will necessitate the need for quick sinking lines during periods of tidal change. Some of the best and most diverse year-round fishing occurs at the New Jersey Shore. Due to the Gulf Stream, the Hudson River Flow and the Delaware River Flow, the New Jersey Shore produces a wide variety of species, such as bluefish, striped bass, fluke, weakfish and more.

Anglers can surf cast from selected beaches or enjoy fishing the inlets. Many half-day, full-day and nighttime party boats operate out of marinas on the New Jersey Shore.  Marinas can be found in Cape May, Wildwood, Long Beach Island, Atlantic City, Sea Bright, Belmar, Brielle, Point Pleasant and Seaside, NJ.  Visitors may enjoy a few hours of blue fishing on the Atlantic or even an overnight big game fishing trip via party boat.

When the bass are in the tidal freshwaters, fishing is limited to the springtime and during these spring spawning migrations, striped bass can be caught from shoreline or by boat along tidal freshwater rivers.
