SOME black bass have been caught and some flounder. squid strips ? mackeral strips? whats the best bait to use? thanks in advance

Little Egg Reef is the closest. Take the north cut and I believe the heading is 190 after you break the inlet. Before you reach the reef there are some big yellow research bouys. I am thinking about giving it a try this week end too. I would try chartuse fluke rigs w/ green gulp swim minnows. Dress it with a long strip bait and a minnow. Sorry I can not help more. Good Luck.

Water still too cold for flatties. You can drift around the reef balls and wrecks and pick up some sea bass. I was wrecking on Thursday did ok but I spent alot of time scouting new wrecks. You should buy the NJ reef book, alot of good info plus super accurate #. Scotts B&T carries it. Well worth the money. I'll probably get a new one next year.

Get the new edition Diving and Fishing NJ Reefs, Like Vitalsigns says it is loaded with info.
I bought mine last year, many updates and numbers. Also there is the Garden State South Reef that is in your range, this is another good site.
Check out these two sites, they list wreck, holes, reefs and much more. Again alot of them are in your range.
