Hi my name is dan and I am new to this as well. How much is the entrance fee to get into IBSP ? Is it best to  wait until Sept when there is no fee as the fishing might be better then  Azn

First welcome to the site.  You have found the best and friendliest fishing sites out there.

As far as fishing IBSP, it is starting to heat up out front with a handful of stripers being caught.  Right now the best offering that local B&T's have are clams.  Use small pieces and smaller hooks than usual 3/0 to 5/0 with 5/0's the choice right now.  If you can find or make your own Hi - Lo rig that seems to work the best for now.

Will you be driving on or parking in one of the lots and walking on?

I also will be going out there on Thursday it looks like.

Happy Catching

Paul

Welcome aboard.
The entrance fees to the park are $6 during the week or $10 on weekends.  That doesn't change in the off season. 
When to go depends on what you want to fish for.  Right now is mostly fluke during the morning and sharks at night.
Come Sept. the stripers will start to show up again and it will get better from there.

South of Seaside Heights/Park. Go onto the island and head south, end of the island.

IBS P= Island Beach State Park.

Welcome aboard Steve,

First of all there are no dumb questions here.  Island Beach State Park is roughly a 10 mile long stretch of land that has at least in my mind the best fishing around.  You have your choice of easy access to either the bay or the ocean, with parking lots that dot the island.  These lots make it easy for anybody with any type of veh to gain access to the beach to fish. 

There are 2 huge bathing beaches for the family and if you have a veh that is 4 wheel drive you can gain access at 3 points along the island.  The park is open all year but it will cost you to gain access unless you have a State issued Senior Citizen card than to just drive in it is free.  Other wise it will cost you $6.00 on weekdays and $10.00 on weekends like Chris mentioned.

To drive on the beach there are 2 passes, $50.00 for a 3 day pass and $195.00 for the whole season (one year).  It is still a bargain especially if you are out there as much as my family is during the coarse of the year.

The best time to fish IBSP is in the Spring and the Fall as the fish are on the move and the beach comes alive with tons of fish to catch.  If you are new to surf fishing there is a learning curve so don't give up to soon.  Right now the back bays and tributaries are starting to warm up and soon the fish will put on the feed bag. 

If you are a seasoned fisherman it is an ideal spot as like I mentioned before you have access to the bay, ocean and the inlet.  I am out there early but the fish usually start to be caught at a regular rate around Mothers day.  Now is the time to do some scouting and getting use to the beach as it has been a long hard winter and the cob webs need to be dusted off.

I hope this helps.

Happy Catching

Welcome Scubasteve! thumbs up

To get to IBSP take the parkway south to exit 82B.  This will put you on Rt.37 east.  It's about 6 miles or so.  After you go over the bridge, stay in the right lane and take Rt. 35 south.  Follow Rt. 35 south (it will turn into Central Ave.) about 3 miles until you get to the gatehouse at IBSP.

Good luck! thumbs up

I was wondering if anyone could advise how far down into ibsp you can drive, and if you can take a truck onto the sand.  I was also wondering if you can drive on the beach south of holgate in LBI.  Any info would be great.  Thank you and stay safe.

IBSP
The road runs from the park entrance to about a mile or so north of the inlet. 
Beach buggy access is by permit only.  $50 for 3 days or $195 for the year.
There are a couple miles at the north end that are off limits to trucks years round.  During the summer there's a section in the middle that's off limits.

What Chris has said.  Holgate is kind of strange as it closes all its beaches south of the road at the parking lot due to the Piping Plover nesting. 

It is closed all summer long which makes a very good fishing ground off limits.
