Sounds like you are talking about Gloucester Point Campground. If you turn right at the Food Lion and go a mile or so you will hit Low Ground Road, turn left. Go 2-3 miles and turn right at the signs for the camp ground. Their are several small piers there. Don't know how much fishing is done there. Anywhere else is gonna be a private pier. There is another small pier (boat dock) if you continue down 17N about 3 miles and turn left at the Farm Fresh (Crewe Rd) and drive till you run into the dock. This is a great place to catch croakers and never has anyone on it. Also, it is the best place to catch minnows on the Gloucester side. Don't know where else you'd be talking in the Coleman Bridge area.

Thanks flounder pounder for info to boat dock off creaw rd. Me and my bro-inlaw caught some nice croakers. I have one question. while we were there i noticed the clear jelly it the water that would light up with a blue tint, at first i thought that one can of coors light was going to my head....:eek: But after the third one I knew for sure that i saw that ecto-plasma, blue chu jelly jelly stuff light up....8(---) anyone knows what it is before i eat these fish thanks.

Bioluminescence.

Combjellies and dinoflagellate Notctiluca(the real small stuff) manufacturer their own lightworks for different reasons. It's not due to an unreported leak from some nuclear sub or reactor. Many people refer to it as "fire in the water." IMO, it's not so good for fishing...but it's really cool when you see it. There are alot of Navy guys who lurk this board, I bet they've seen this stuff light up the bow of a ship plowing through it or in the wake behind them.
