Brigantine boasts a long, semi-fishable jetty on the south end at Absecon Inlet, and some four-wheel-drive beach access on our north end near Brigantine Inlet. Anglers enjoy a whole lot of fishable waters in-between as well.
NOTE: Many marine species are managed on a coast-wide basis with seasons and limits required by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. They then must be approved by our state’s Marine Fisheries Council. Regulations remain in effect until changed.
