I'm new to the NJ Saltwater Fisherman home and new to the forum. I haven't seen many recent posts, reporting any activity from Absecon Island area surf fishing. I would love to hear from a few about what's going on and where? I've checked the tide chart and I'll be heading out late afternoon for the tide change.  thumbs up

Thank You All, for the warm Welcome. I'm looking forward to hearing from some of the southern surf fishers, maybe they can give me a few pointers. It's been many years since I had a rod & reel in my hand (kids, family, ect) it's nice to get back into it. I've picked up some nice gear from Digital Dagger, FJ Cruiser loves the beach, now just to get some of that there striper on my plate.

Welcome Clamhead,

Sorry I don't get down that way to often but reading the beach is just about the same all over.  There is an article about this subject that could help you out no matter where you live.

As far as catching fish just read the chatter on the site and in the Fall it will be coming your way in other words from the North to South only with a little time delay of a week or two.

In the Spring we will be watching your posts to see what you guys are catching down your way as the migration will be from the South to North.

But I have to warn you the Striped Bass last year did not cooperate with NJ surfers and stayed off shore and bypassed us for the most part.  EWach year is different and the times are different as sell.  This year the run seems to have started early which is a good thing and it is slow but for the most part steady.

The bass that are being caught were caught on clams but that bite has slowed down quite a bit.  I am looking at switching to small AVA's that mimic the sand eels in sizes from 007 to 117 and maybe to A27's.  The A47's or larger are to big this time of year off the surf.

Good Luck

Happy Catching

Be sure to let us know if you have success (or not), don't need to give specific location but baits that are working etc would help others - and if fishermen/boaters don't help each other tghen NOBOBDY will.  ;)Mako 15

Clams MMMMMMMM! Oh yeah fishing. I fish ( mostly from one of my boats ) that area a lot usually - not the past 2 years due to !%!%!% stuff. Gew up in Port Republic ( learn to swim, clam THEN learn how to walk!!! hhppyCheck out fishingreportsnow. com and scottsbaitandtackle.com ( or google these if I've screwed up the URL's ). Usually reports from the south end of LBI/Beach Haven like Betty and Nicks will hold true for Absecon Island. So far this year I've mostly heard of short fluke, kingfish, croakers, dogfish etc in the surf - If catching small go with lighter tackle to increase the fun - sometimes the fish are right in the wash not way off  some sandbar. Hope this helps. Ray S aka Mako15
