My sis was in town from Maryland, took her and my daughter to the public fishing pier in OC NJ Pier on the morning high tide. Was pretty slow for us, til the outgoing tide where I caught a 26 inch striper underneath the bridge. Dang it, 2 inches too small for NJ, so we threw it back. It was caught on cut mackerel. Another guy at the corner of the pier caught a couple of big blues. Be careful though, there are a lot of junk (cables or whatever) down there and you will lose some gear from time to time.
