Jersey Guys,
Are there any fishing piers, bulkheads,or beach access points in South Jersey ( Del River > Del Bay side) that are easily accessible, worth the trip, my son keeps begging me to fish in NJ..the river and bay side is a short, scenic drive from Wilmington.:(

Cape May county is pretty small, you can hit Reed's Beach about the 11 mile marker south on Rt.47. Avalon, Stone Harbor, and the Wildwoods are all within about 15 miles of each other. You can stop at The Girls Place on Rt. 47 in Port Elizabeth for bait& advice. They are good people. Good luck.

Thanks for the information..is there a bulkhead or beach front to fish in Fortescue? I have heard stories of fisherman scoring on big trout from the shore in the spring..thanks again for the info!:)

Can't tell you about Fortescue, I haven't been there in about 20 years. When I was there last time it was really foggy [caused by massive amounts of beer intake] I think I had a real good time???. Sorry I can't help more on that area.

Greetings Murphman!

There is a beach (low tide) bulkhead (high tide) in Fortescue. I've caught weakies there (when there were weakies in Fortescue), and I've seen nice blues and fluke pulled out. The bulkhead/beach is on the bayfront -- just follow the road around from the fishing fleet. You can also rent outboard powered skiffs at the marina.

There is also Sunset Beach (on the Delaware Bay) near Cape May. Higbees Beach (also known as Gay Beach) on Delaware Bay has some decent striper fishing in the "off" season, but access was restricted a few years back and I don't know the current status. The N Wildwood Rock Pile is currently producing stripers and tog. The Cape May jetties should be doing the same. I don't know the current status of Cold Spring Inlet.

Hope this helps....

Jersey Spots

Mark,
Thanks for the reply..going to PLO this weekend so will not be chasing the DR&B striped ones! There is always Dobbinsville in the Spring on or side of the river! I sure wish Mom's was still around. They have put too many houses on rt 9 and I'm sure more will be on the way.:)
