Anyone ever fish the Klingener Fishing Pier between somers point and longport? if you have wut kind of baits and tackle did you use? if anyinfo on area at all let me know and i will appericate it. thanks
Drew, that pier would have been better if it was on the other side of the channel. If you do fish it try and hour before and after high tide with minnows and squid and you should get some flatties. The big problem is seaweed when the tide is ripping through that particular spot. Good luck.
Thanks for the info. Is there any other areas in south jersey that you know of i could fish for free or cheap from land or some type of pier. and if i was to fish the pier near longport what type of rig and line and weight would be the best?
There is a nice public bulk head in Stone Harbor. I have only fished it at night, but there are always people there. It is off of 81st. There are benches adrod holders I believe.
Squid and minnies or shedder should work. I know flounder and stripers can be caught from there. I would have to believe a stray weak fish works through there as well. Good luck. Get'em Wet! Pig
Oh...and welcome to the Barn!!
There is another new pier off the OC/Longport causeway, where the old bridge used to be. That puts you into a little deeper water than the queer pier does, and the weedage isn't quite as bad. Best bet is to fish that one.
I really don't like that the Bob n' Jack's of SJ have taken over that pier. Go somewhere else to meet your gay love trists. Mr. Klingener was a really nice guy, my dad's shop teacher, and his name shouldn't be associated with that stuff. Again, sorry to hear of his recent passing.
The pier Fly Ty would be a good bet. If you fish the day try for flatties before and after high tide. The current runs pretty strong there. Use a top and bottom rig with anywhere between 2-4 ozs. to hold bottom. If you fish at night try a fish finder rig with 6/0 - 8/0 circle hook with clam and you should pull up some bass. I have to say I use to fish that spot before they built that pier and it was my favorite spot to fish. Since the pier has been built it isn't the same. Good luck
