Hi All.

Wel we just got back from out first outing of the year, wew did not catch a thing but frost bite from the wind but Dave's (kayak1) suggestion was a great one.  The park is located in Ocean Township on Dock Ave.  The park has been open for just one year and I can see in the summer months this location will be a busy one.

Just look at and you can see why.  There is a huge parking lot with 3 handicapped slots and rest rooms that will make fishing there more comfortable.  It has a huge cleaning station with running water that I am sure will be used quite a bit during the summer months.  There is as basketball cort and a nice looking tennis court.

But one of the great things about this location is the ramp.  It is big and will handle boats up to 25'.  But the best thing it is a free ramp.  Let me repeat it is a free ramp.  Look at the pictures and you can see how clean it is, plus there is deep water to handle boats that size with no troubles.

My uncle and I were totally blown away at this place.  We were talking to one of Ocean Twp's. finest and he said it does get crowded but if you want big crabs this is the place to go.  And, Yes, it does get patrolled by twp police who do check legal limits and sizes.

AS far as putting in a kayak this spot if fantastic.  It is close to the Rt. 9 bridge and close to the mouth of the creek that opens up to the bay.

So if you are looking for a place that is easy access to fish this spot is right up there at the top.  

There are no refreshments vendor yet but by the way the officer talked one will be there soon.

Enjoy the pictures and make this one a do visit spot.

Happy Catching

Paul

Hi Guys,

From Rt 37 take the Parkway south to Lacy Rd.  Go east to Rt. 9 turn right on Rt 9 go one traffic light past the power plant and turn left that is Bay Parkway go till the road starts to bend and than turn slightly left onto Dock Ave. About 1/4 mile down the road on the left is the park.

Happy Catching

Paul

Hey Warren that is what I was told by the officer.  I guess because it was built with a NJ Grant.  But who knows?

Not sure if this paid for the complete park but through the I Boat New Jersey program there is grant monies available for projects like this, here is thier Mission statement.

The I BOAT NJ Program Mission Statement

The I BOAT NJ Program provides grant funds to selected eligible applicants to promote, improve and enhance the marine industry in the State of New Jersey for the benefit of the general boating public.

This program is through the State of New Jersey Department of Transportation.

Hope this helps.

Well all the thanks should go to Dave (kayak1) he was the one that suggested the place.  All I did was go down there and took some pictures and tried my luck as some fishing.

I can only see one problem for a while and that is it will probably be crowded during the summer months so be ready for it.

Happy Catching
