Fishing Brigantine NJ Piers or Surf

Anyone ever fish the subject area of NJ? Is there a pier there to fish off that is open to the public? How is the surf fishing?

No fishing pier, there is a jetty at the south end. There is access to drive on the beach with proper permit required. Just like the rest of the NJ coast, the quality of the fishing is dependent on what species you are targeting and if its in the area at that time.

Good luck, Tony

As stated there is a Jetty to the south and across the way there's the Jetty's in AC. Fishing the rocks themselves hold an abundance of tog. The inlet side will hold striper, blues, and flounder along with the ocean side. All depends on time of year and if you're there at the right time. The gator blues should be making a return very shortly.

Depends what time I'm sure stripers and bluefish will be there but I'm not sure what sizes of those fish will be. If its after May 25 you're allowed 3 flounder at 18" and I know that inlet holds fish. Quite a few decent fish caught from land.

Depends what I'm fishing for. If I'm togging in the rocks I have my Calcutta 201GT with 30lb power pro with a 25lb flouro leader on a 6'6" St Croix Tide Master MH with fast action. Basically that's so when you hook a tog you can horse them in before they put you in the rocks. for this I normally take a 1-2oz bank sinker on a dropper loop then about 4-8 inches above a Size 1/0 or 2/0 baitholder hook with live/cut green crab. My spinning set up is Penn Battle 2000 with 15lb mono on a 7' Tackledirect blank M action. I've targeted flounder off the rocks before and just used my normal tap dancer rig. Basically some bucktails 1-3 oz depending on how the tides running paired with some gulp. I do suggest when you're down there going to One Stop Bait and Tackle the owner has a TON of info for you. He helped me out first time I went. Other then that if you have like studded wading boots they help the rocks can be slippery or the yaktrax you put on your boots ice fishing give you the extra grip on the rocks.

I will visit a bait shop to see what they are hitting. Sounds like I need to fish the inlet.
When I fish Cape May NJ. I did well on catfish Shad that you get in Walmart. They have a black dot on the tail.

Is there any good places to eat around Brigantine?

Not sure about Brigantine I normally don't make it that far north but in AC Whitehouse Subs is a must go probably my favorite cheesesteak place outside of Philly. I'd leave the walmart bait at home and buy fresh down there. I'm more familiar with Somers Point/Sea Isle for food.

I was there Mother's Day weekend. Friday and Saturday. Fished AC Friday 3:30am and early Saturday. Had one big blue break off. Went to Brigintine jetty in afternoon Saturday.You can walk out there and not buy the permit from residential areas. Saw one 36 inch Striper caught on whole clam. I tried bunker with no bites..Blues not heavy but around those two days. Most local gurus go at night on the AC jetties and clear out by day break. Seems like that is when the bite is better.You can go to Riptide bait shop on Brigintine or go to One Stop bait in AC on Atlantic ave.Rough looking area, but had no issues up there yet. New boardwalk up at that end also.People like to surf and jet ski in front of the Brigintine jetty since the waves are bigger there so that can be anoying.
