Jersey Shore Description

Stretching from the Manasquan Inlet north along the Monmouth County coastline and around Sandy Hook into the Raritan Bay. Here fly anglers can experience great fishing either off the groins and beaches into the Altlantic Ocean or along the inlets into large rivers or the flats and sod banks of the back bays. It's a challenging fishery and success depends on the anglers knowledge on the location of the fish ...

Techniques & Tips

Early morning and evening into the nights are best. You'll have the beach to yourself. Work the trough as predator fish patrol looking for crabs and small white bait. Its a great season to fish.

7-Day Forecast

The weather seems to change several times a day. One day the ocean is calm, another day there's a nasty swell and its off-color. Check the weather and local surf reports.
