I usually fish the fortescue beach in march but it gets way too crowded. How's the cape may beaches that time of year?
Ocean front still too cold in March. If the water temps are a couple degrees higher than normal - try CMP up to around Reeds Beach. Fish around/near jetty's and creeks dumping into the Bay. April-May best time for Spring Surf fishing CM along Ocean Front.

Listen to BILLO, its good advice. Starting near the end March Ill be hitting small creeks that feed into the DB south of Reeds Beach till the fish start snapping on the CM beaches. The only thing I'd add is don't go larger than a 5/0 Circle hook as the bass tend to be on the smaller side. Yes bigger bass can be caught and there was a nice pick of bigger bass than normal last march-april but looking at my logs from that time period in years before that, 95% of my bass were under 18 inches.
