The next stop in my quest is Brick, at the Mantoloking Bridge fishing pier.
If you haven't been by here in a while it is worth a trip especially for crabbing right now. It is easy to get to if you are traveling on Rt 35 go south past Bay Head and there is a traffic light for Herbert St, 528 toward Lakewood. turn right and go over the bridge. There is a small parking lot just to the west of the bridge and if that is full go a little further and pull into the Mantoloking Cove Marina and head east where you will find pleanty of parking.....

From Brick Go East on Mantoloking Rd. and look for Mantoloking Cove Marina on your left you can pull into there or go a little further and park in the little road side parking area if there is room.
You can walk along the water and fish off the bulkhead or walk further and you will find a concrete walkway under the new bridge that leads to a fantastic fishing pier. Plenty of room to stretch out and fish.
There is a portable jon as the facilities on the north side of the new bridge and Pell's bait and Tackle is just down the road a bit to handle all your needs.
I met three guys that were just setting up and I hope they will be able to get on today and let me know how they did.
This spot is a diamond in the rough. Worth a try any time of year.
