I was in riptide today and Andy was talking to a guy from Harrahs. He said the state of NJ is making Harrah and Borgata put in a boardwalk/fishing pier from clam creek all the way to the bridge. The plan will include a parking lot,kayak ramp,and other facilities. If anyone is not aware this stretch has to be over a mile long and covers some excellant striper water and very good fluke water. For once the state is thinking about the fisherman in aproving the two casinos expansion plans.

Chunker,
That area is Borgata's back yard it's in thier best interests to keep it picked up. I for one wouldn't mind a small fee to defray the costs of garbage removal and the like.

If they want this to be done correctly they should charge for usage. I can't stand all the trash left behind by inconsiderate slobs.

Yeaah You guys are right. Im sure some of the ac locals will ruin it leaving seaweed, guts ,bait and broken wine bottles all over the place. We need to nip that stuuf it the butt before it gets out of hand. Maybe a regular scheduled cleanup on the first sunday of the month or a club that police's it. No fee the state is forcing public acess on them in exchange for developement rights.

Sounds cool and speaking of trash. Checked out the TI bridge yesterday and its a mess. Trash all over the place. That place gets worse every year. Disgusting. I would think that fisherman who are serious enough to start fishing this early would be a little more considerate.

Anyway, never fished AC before. Would you park in the parking garages if this plan comes through?

HARRAH'S???? I OPENED THAT JOINT IN 1980 WHEN THEY WERE "THE BETTER PEOPLE"...then they told me I BETTER look for another job.

good water back there and if they do have to do this they will have security guards out there.
casino won't let it get trashy.....they also won't advertise that it is there either

sounds great! Hey barrel, the entrance to the old peir under the bridge in brigantine was closed off in the fall. I had to heave my yak over the railing to tow it to the water. Is it still closed?

yes it is privatly owned property. You can launch just north of that about 100 yards over the guard rail or across the street on the way in.
