Brigantine: New Jersey’s Best Fishing

New Jersey Monthly selects Brigantine Beach as one of the state’s best fishing areas.

Brigantine has arguably the best saltwater fishing in the southern half of the state. This island city boasts a long, partly fishable jetty on the south end at Absecon Inlet, some four-wheel-drive beach access on its north end near Brigantine Inlet and a whole lot of fishy-looking water in-between.

  1. I have fished from the Park near the bridge to Brigantine(1958-1961) ,near Harrah’s Casino catching bluefish in Aug-Sept and striped bass in November. There’s no more bloodworms and in this Century very little kelp and surface fish like bluefish.There was no Harrah’s in the late 1950s ,but the same fishing area is still there ,today.Let me know if a fishing license is needed to fish off piers in Brigantine, NJ. these days.

  2. I believe in the 80/20 rule. you know, where 80 of all reward comes from 20 of the effort? Well, I believe your blog is that 20. I’ve added you to the list of sites that I frequent. Thank you for the in depth and detailed blog posts. Not many people are willing to do that anymore.
