2 mile jetty is the jetty protecting the Cape May Inlet. If you go to the south end of Wildwood Crest (Diamond beach which is actually part of Lower Township) you can access it from either the beach or from Pacific Aveneue. It is former Coast Guard property and is still marked as such.
iYou can access the jetty between October 15th and April 15th.
I know there is a pretty good map on the internet, I'll search around for the link and post it when I find it.
Dave, thanks for the info on 2 mile jetty....
My Dad lives in the Villas and when I went up we fished the rocks
at the canal North C.M., I heard that 2 mile can be a hot spot....,
and as for the Giants my wife grew up in Chatham NJ and is a
Giants, Yankees fan. If it's gotta be.. the Giants or the Redskins above the Eagles.....but not the Cowboys. I think we share that
thought.....BUT COME ON DAVE GO RANGERS !!!!!
give me a break
You got that right !
Santa brought me all new Eagles gear!
And get this he knew I would be at my In-laws in Atlanta...
I tell ya that Santa he really amazes me.
Saturday night...I hope the Giants fans will be watching.
I'm not really a fan, but I will watch a good game. Unfortunately, a lot of the Eagles' wins this year were fugly. It took a team as beat up as the Deadskins to make us look good, and we still lost another player. Philadelphia teams are known for choking -- I would never bet on the Beagles in a big game. They wanted a new stadium, and they got it. If they're not wearing superbowl rings in February, there will be a lot of backpeddling going on.
I wonder if they can use the rubble from the Vet to make a reef? If I remember right it cost $50 million back in the day... hate to see all that end up as landfill!
And since I'm "carping" about Philadelphia, I'd sure like to see them put a fishing pier in. Dave & Buster's raised their parking to $8.00, so I don't know how often I'll be using my neighborhood pier. Theres a beautiful deepwater pier right next to the Ben Franklin Bridge, just one good cast away from the shipping channel. Dare to dream....
Gawd I've got cabin fever already. Isn't even January yet.... Hope I make it to April!
there is no need to fish the rock pile at the inlet, fishing under the toll bridge it's great, may and june, you can catch blues weaks tog stipers and flounder just wade out on the start of the incoming tide. great spot to fish without walking to the jetty.by the way flyers rule!!!

I've never fished the jetty, when I'm down there it's either by the toll bridge or up to the other side of the island and fish the rocks in North Wildwood.
I hear you, it was great when you could pull in and park on the sand. I remeber when and why the stopped allowing it. My son and I happened to be on the Royal Flush on the night trip. As we passed through the drwa bridge we could see some guy with his new (looked that way) SUV swamped up to the doors in water. He had apparently driven out on the beach earlier and was attempting to leave after the tide had started to come in. He got stuck driving through the little creek that empty's the marsh. Shortly therafter the gate went up and no vehicles were allowed on the beach. Now we all have to park down the road and lug our gear to the beach (another reason I fish North Wildwood, I can park closer to the beach).
The one small silver lining is that since vehicle access was prohibitted, you no longer have to dodge the personal water craft that people had started launching from the beach!
there are plenty of good spots around the area. If you are familiar with the area, the jetty at higbee beach is good, the two jetties between the whalers cove in north cape may are good, the george redding bridge going into wildwood and the route 109 bridge goimnng into cape may are good. The half bridge in north wildwood at dads place marina is good too.
RuddeDogg said it right. There are plenty of great places to fish all over Cape May County. From the Point jetties to Ocean City. Loads of bridges, jetties, sod banks, beaches, docks, piers, you name it. On any given night you can start in Cape May and work your way North catching fish all the way using any number of techniques. It's all breaking open now - in case you didn't know. Stripers are out there for the taking! I'm heading out tonight and tomorrow - bridges tonight, Del. bay Sat..
thanks for the update, I'm going up right after Easter. I love fishing in my home state, nothing against the beaches down here in Va. It's just that NJ has more open shore line that is not
private property. Down here you get to fish longer and earlier each year, but it's hard to get access to the water. I know there is alot of shore line out there on the Eastern shore but it's a bit of a drive from Richmond. Besides when I go to NJ I can visit Mom, Pop and the other 100 or so relatives in Souf Jersey. And say hi to Lucy the elephant
